We entered a group of Year 5 children into this amazing event and they performed a fantastic street dance routine that had been choreographed with the children, by two Year 12 students from Accrington Acadamy.  Our children were brilliant and had a great experience. 


We held our school Sports Days on 23rd and 24th May this year - Everyone competed in 6 races and lots of fun was had by all: 



We also hold various Inter-planet sports competitions for all of our children throughout the year.


On Tuesday 3rd July, we were very proud to take 3 teams to the Lancashire Youth Games to represent our school in the Netball, Hockey and Orienteering  events.  It was a fantastic experience for the children and staff and everyone had a wonderful day.  The children were all a huge credit to the school and put 100% effort into all of the events they competed in:
