Carcroft netball tournament 24.11.21

Wow! I am so impressed with how well Carcroft netball team have played this afternoon. Once we got the hang of it  we were well away with scoring.

Special shout out to Heidi! I love how well you know the rules and were telling other players what they can and cannot do. Excellent defending!

Overall we came 4/6, well done to all players!

Swimming Super Stars (7/6/21) 🏊‍♂️

Today was sadly our last swimming session. We are absolutely gutted that it is ending, because we have loved it so much. This was our best session yet, as it was a fun day. We got to do synchronised swimming, had a competitive water polo match and then got to have the final part of the session playing with the equipment, racing each other and doing all kinds of other enjoyable activities.

The swimming super stars are everyone from Crew G and Crew Mc. You have really blown us away this year with swimming and have taken everything in your stride. Whether you could not swim or was confident to begin with, their has been so much progress made.

The swimming coaches were really blown away by your commitment and attitude, which goes to show that you can achieve whatever you put your mind to.

This has certainly been one of mine and Mrs Gilliland’s favourite sessions to take part in all year and we’re equally as sad that we won’t be going next week. I think a lot will even want to go swimming throughout the summer with their friends or pick up swimming lessons from where they left off!

Each and everyone of you have all made us feel lots of pride at some point during the time we have been going to swimming baths, so I want to say a massive well done!

Mr Gerrard and Mrs Gilliland 😆

Sports day 2021

Swimming Super Stars (16/6/21) 🏊‍♂️

This was another fantastic week at swimming and a session that we all enjoyed very much. It was maybe even pour favourite yet, which is a very hard choice to make, considering we love swimming so much! Today, we we went swimming in our clothes and this was for a very good reason – it was our water safety course, which we will complete next week as well. The vast majority of us managed to swim in the deep end. Those that didn’t still have next week to have a go, but they did brilliantly in the depth of water that they felt most confident in. I know many will try next week. It was difficult to pick our swimming super star this week, with so many fantastic achievements. They were:

McKenzie for being able to swim in the deep end with a ball on his front and back! (Crew G) 😀

Riley for swimming so confidently and with great skill! (Crew G) 😁

Roxanne for showing great perseverance, even with some nerves! (Crew Mc) 😃

Harry for swimming in the deep end to the rope, which was 15m away! (Crew Mc) 😄

I want to give a special shout out to Brayden who was our first pupil to swim from the deep end to the shallow end. Myself and Mrs Gilliland, along with the swimming instructors were blown away. We were really proud!

The children will need to come with the same clothing next week as well, as we continue our swimming safety! 😆

⚽Football week⚽

Before half term, Carcroft Primary School participated in football week, this was a great opportunity for crews to show their sportsmanship, football skills and take part in a competitive sport.

Watch the video below to see what we got up to…

Swimming Super Stars (9/06/21)! 🏊‍♂️

We may have had a week off of school, but our enthusiasm was still just as high as before for swimming. The children were excited to say the least. We recapped our safety, just to make sure that we hadn’t forgotten and then went straight into the deep end. It was amazing to see so many go in there for the first time and how bravely they took on this new challenge. Jumping in is probably the favourite part for most of us. Those who weren’t in the deep end have made some fantastic progress, too. They have been able to complete some more floating techniques, managed to perfect their push & glides, plus they have been able to swim without floats. This is fantastic! Another difficult decision for the swimming super stars, but they were:

Brayden for showing fantastic listening and brilliant technique. His glide was perfect and I think it could have gone on for even longer! (Crew G) 😀

Evie for being able to make great progression with her swimming. She is coming on really well! (Crew G) 😁

Roxanne for showing great bravery and getting back into the swing of things easily! (Crew Mc) 😃

Olly for being a superb swimmer. Your confidence keeps on growing! (Crew Mc) 😄

During the next two weeks, we will be going into the pool clothed, to further develop our skills. Can you make sure that the clothing is either pyjamas or shirt and shorts. The children don’t need to wear shoes, jeans or anything baggy. Any questions, then just ask! 😆
