Skelton School netball team - Champions of Eden for the third year running - FANTASTIC!!! Next stop, County finals, fingers crossed!!
Dodgeball - our first Dodgeball Club started this month. It has proved so popular that we will be repeating it over the next few months. The children have really loved learning new skills and have enjoyed taking part in this exciting, competitive yet fun sport!
A week of sport - every afternoon during National Curriculum Test Week, our Key Stage 2 children all took part in House Competitions for rounders, cricket, netball, football, cross country and rugby. Each of our house teams won two trophies each and all the children had a great week of sport.
Three teams of children from Years 3 and 4 took part in the Eden Tennis Tournament. Over 20 teams took part and Skelton came first and second overall - an absolutely fantastic achievement. Those teams will be taking part in the Cumbria Games in July where they will be representing the Eden area. Watch out Andy Murray, you might have competition soon!
Three teams of children from Years 5 and 6 took part in the Eden Orienteering Competition at Newton Rigg. They all performed brilliantly well and all children improved their performance as the day unfolded. A whopping 37 teams took part and one of our Skelton teams WON the whole event. This means that they will be the Eden representatives at the forthcoming Cumbria Games event in July. Well done!!
Our Growing Garden is abslolutely blooming right now - the children have been tending to their fruits and vegetables and making some colourful additions too. The garden is now decorated with pretty rows of bunting and a lovely display of flowers grown in old wellington boots!
It is always a pleasure to welcome John from Action Ants to Skelton School for After School Club sessions. This half term, we have had so much fun learning archery, fencing and futsal and we rounded the half term off with a mini-Olympics session. We look forward to seeing you again in the Autumn term, John!
Friends of Skelton School held their Easter Bingo at Skelton Village Hall - a great evening was had by all and all funds raised will go towards the children's Christmas Party
Key Stage 1 Hunter Hall Cross Country Competition - a team of children from Years 1 and 2 took part in a Cross Country event held at Hunter Hall School. They did brilliantly well, with our Year 1 girls finishing 5th in their category. An amazing achievement!
