Extra Curr Activities

Robinwood - July 2019


Spirit of Sport Pledge


All children in Year 6 in Lancashire were invited to write a Spirit of Sport Pledge with the winning entry being read out at the SPAR School Games finals in Blackpool on July 2nd. We were delighted when we were told that Chloe's pledge had been chosen out of all the entries received in West Lancashire. Chloe was able to attend the finals with her family as a VIP Guest, read out her winning pledge and also lead the team out at the Opening Ceremony. What a fantastic achievement! 



Children in Year 5 went with Miss Baines today to Banks St Stephens Bowling Club where they were shown the rules of bowling and then had a go themselves. The children quickly picked it up and were soon competing against each other and in teams. We have another 3 sessions at the Bowling Club in the next few weeks and the children have said they are really looking forward to going again. 


Children in Years 3-6 took part in the Dengineers event at Tarleton Academy on Friday 14th June. The children were tasked with building a shelter in the woods using materials they could find in the surrounding area. They also had to earn bamboo canes, rope and tarpaulin by finding tokens located around the school site.


The shelters were then judged by the staff at West Lancashire Sports Partnership on their stability, creativity and how waterproof they were - this was put to the test by throwing water over them whilst the children were underneath! There was also a certificate given for teamwork.


The Year 5 and 6 team won the certificate for the Most Stable Shelter and Years 3 and 4 won Most Creative Design. Well done to everyone who took part!



TASA Swimming Gala


Well done to our swimmers that took part in the Tarleton Active Schools Alliance Swimming Gala held at Edge Hill at Thursday 13th June. Everyone swam their best and represented our school well. We even came away with a few medals!

High Fives

This half term we are starting our High Fives Club for Years 5 and 6. We are lucky to have a specialist sports coach from West Lancashire Sports Partnership to run this after school club every Monday until the Summer Term.
