On Wednesday 25th June we took 10 of our students who have worked hard at tennis club this year and within their PE lessons to Wimbledon as a reward for their hard work. This was a fantastic day out and all students and staff had a thoroughly enjoyable day.
Students were able to experience a variety of live tennis games on Centre Court and Court 2 throughout the day, including seeing an exciting game with Djokovic playing. In addition to this they were able to walk around and see extra games being played on all of the outside courts, including getting very close to some doubles action. Our students were a credit to the school and their behaviour was impeccable throughout the day, we were very lucky for the sun to shine so we could enjoy our strawberries whilst sat watching.
A massive thank you to Mr Broad for organising this trip!

In the Summer Term at Campsmount we have organised and ran two Pyramid Festivals joining together with Don Valley. To start with on Tuesday 10th June, we organised a KS2 Rounders Festival where we invited schools up to Campsmount to participate in this. Unfortunately Kirk Smeaton were unable to attend this, however Norton Juniors were able to bring two teams to fill their place and Askern Spa were able to join them too. We also had the pleasure of Kirkby Avenue coming to join in.
All schools were fantastic and in all of the years that I have been running festivals I have never seen such talent coming through. It is great to see the benefits of our pyramid working together. Not only did the schools demonstrate some fantastic skills, their understanding of the game and their tactical awareness was phenomenal for students only in Year 6.
The students played a round robin tournament and at the end it was a closely fought contest between Norton Juniors A & B and Norton Juniors B came out as the winners overall and they were undefeated throughout the whole of the competition. Some fantastic gameplay and sportsmanship well done Norton!
Then on Wednesday 11th July we had the KS1 Kwik Cricket Festival and we were very lucky enough to host this at Askern Welfare Cricket Club. Norman Firth, the Chairman at the club was amazing as usual supplying us with his club for the day, he helped set up all of the pitches, run refreshments and supply coaches to ensure yet again a smoothly ran festival took place for all of our Infant Schools.
It was very close between the top three schools, which were Kirk Smeaton, Bentley High Street and Littlemoor Children’s Centre and School, however Littlemoor held their own and they managed to gain a win in everyone of their games to become champions for the first time. It was also great to see one of our ex students Carla Tranter working with this school, who has gained a job as a Community Sports Coach, after gaining extra qualifications and experience working in the Campsmount Leadership Academy.
Thank you to everyone at Askern Welfare Cricket Club for your help yet again to run a fantastic festival which all staff and students were extremely positive about. Also a big thank you to Jill Howey and Val Hallam for helping on the day. This is a great example of our community working together to deliver and increase participation in sport.
