Outwood Together - Boccia Skills Competition: June 2021


Recently, 5 of our children from KS2 took part in the recent Boccia skills event which was designed to focus on those throwing skills and hitting the target area as accurately as possible. As a team, each of the 5 children took part in 4 separate  rounds aiming to collect the highest possible points total according to the area of the target they landed on from their two individual throws.


Over the course of the rounds, there were some close calls seeing a mixture of emotions being displayed.  The children worked fantastic as a team showing great encouragement, team spirit and sporting attitude. 


We are incredibly proud of their effort and achievements!

Outwood Together 'Football skills competition' - May 2021

Last week, we had 122 children from Reception right up to Year 6 take part in the Virtual Football skills competition as part of the Outwood Together pyramid. In what was a challenging week weather wise, all of the children tackled the challenge head on and performed magnificently showing great control and technique moving the ball in and out of the cones and then completing the course either through dribbling to the goal or shooting. 


All groups of children who performed set really competitive times for scoring the 10 goals but it was our Reception children who were the 'Shining stars' this week, coming first in their respective category.
