4.11.17 – Talented dancers and further football success!

Another busy couple of weeks for PE and sport at Balby Central. Year 4/5/6 children were fortunate enough to take part in a ballet workshop last Monday with the Northern Ballet school. All the children tried their best and enjoyed the chance to take part in an activity which was new to many. Many thanks to Mrs Hodgson  for organising the visit and a huge congratulations to those children who have been invited along to additional sessions! We clearly have some very enthusiastic and talented dancers!


Last Wednesday a group of Y3/4/5 pupils travelled to Badsworth  primary school for their first friendly football fixture of the year. Our Y3/4 team played brilliantly to win 8-2, whilst the Y4/5 team won what was a very tight and tense game, 2-1. All players were exceptional, playing well together as a team, with some moments of brilliance to score a number of goals.

Attention now turns to intra-school sports competitions as we get closer to the finals! (Y3- Football,Y4 – Basketball, Y5/6 – Badminton)
