Sports Day
On Tuesday 28th June, we held our annual sports day. It was fantastic to experience this together this year as a school, for the first time since 2019! It was great to see so many parents and family members come to see the sports afternoon. Despite the wind, the children were demonstrating teamwork, resilience and determination. At Ellwood School our aims are to provide children with a range of skills for their future. Our focus this year was for the children to develop their social skills, teamwork and communication skills. Well done to all of the children who took part, you all tried your best and should be so proud. During the carousel activities the children had great fun earning points for their house group, whilst practising skills such as throwing and catching and jumping. This was followed on by the track events where the children were working together to score more points for their house group.
Thank you to Cam, Conner and Miss Hek for organising the afternoon and to the staff for supporting the event.
Well done to Goldfinch House for being the sports day cup winner this year!
Fundraising Sponsored Bounce
Thank you so much for supporting the sponsored bounce this year. Some of the money has been put towards some new books. We have been waiting for the books to be published and they are finally here! The books are amazing and will enhance the children’s phonics and reading development. We have also used some of this money to purchase some of our Golden Ticket prizes. Thank you so much ! Team work makes the dream work.
