Kicking off sports week in an extraordinary way! Sporting Champions in Year 2 🏃‍♂️

What an extraordinary day we’ve had today in Crew! We were so lucky to have met James Dasaolu! James is a British sprint track and field athlete who specialises in the 100 metres, over which distance he is the 2014 European champion 🏃‍♂️🏃‍♂️

In July 2013, he became the second fastest Briton of all time after running a 100 m time of 9.91 seconds in the British Championships. In 2014 he won his first major title, claiming the gold medal in the 100 metres at the 2014 European Athletics Championships.

James put us through our paces and spotted some sporting heroes.

Well done done Keira-Leigh and Stevie for raising so much money through their sponsorship.

Year 2 Passage Presentations

As our amazing Year 2 children prepare to move onto Key Stage 2, we are asking them complete passage presentations to their adults. The presentation will reflect on their personal and school journey across Key Stage 1 and share their successes.

We would love to invite adults to come to school to share this journey. Please could you complete the form below to select the timeslots you are available to attend the presentation. We will endeavour to arrange appointments in the first choice slots but it may be necessary to utilise the second choice options. Please could we ask that different days are selected to try and ensure that we can accommodate as many people as possible.

Passage Booking Form

We would also love to include photographs of your child from the past two years. If you would like to add a couple of photographs from home, please email these to [email protected] and we will add these to the presentation.

Please do not hesitate to speak to either of us if you have any questions.

Thank you once again for your support

Mr Longley and Mrs Godley

KS1 Rounders Tournament

Today, some of our Year 1 and Year 2 children have took part in a rounders tournament at Campsmount School. The children showed how well Carcroft School work as a team, and were cheering each other on throughout the afternoon. Their crew building and communication skills really shone through today and made myself and Mrs Scott feel really proud of them! 😁 We can’t wait to try again next year after a little bit more practice as we think the team will be amazing! 🌟
