Celebrating sport and physical activity

Sainsbury's School Games - Sports Day 2017

On Thursday 6th of June, Nook Lane Junior School held its annual Sainsbury's School Games Sports day. The children competed in house teams in a range of different events before the long distance, sprint, bean bag balance and javelin throw events at the end of the afternoon.

The children were amazing in their support and encouragement for each other and the staff were all so proud of how they conducted themselves throughout the afternoon. They are a credit to their school!

Results:

  • Winning house - Sheaf
  • Winning team - Loxley C

A huge thank you to all the families and supporters who came to cheer the children along, it made for a cracking atmosphere!

Move it Day - Friday 30th June 2017

On Friday 30th June the whole of Nook Lane took part in a city wide initiative called 'Move It' day. The idea of the event was to get as many children and adults in Sheffield active for the majority of the day.

The children and teachers of Nook Lane were challenged to be active in class for at least 50% of the school day. Lots of active sessions were planned and we even had an active singing assembly, led by the ever energetic Mrs Parkin.

Everyone really got involved in the day and it was a huge success! Hopefully it will inspire the children (and teachers!) to get more active!

Amazing Year 6 Netball! - June 2016

The amazing Year 6 netball team are now the best in South Yorkshire!

The girls went to the English Institute of Sport earlier this week to compete against the best teams in South Yorkshire. Once again they played stunning netball and breezed their way to the semi final.

The final was the most challenging match, but like true Nook Lane Netballers they weren't phased by the tough competition. The final score was Westways 2 - Nook Lane 4. The girls are now ready to start training for the Yorkshire finals which will be held on July 18th.

Primary Athletics Competition - Tuesday 17th May 2016

On Tuesday 17th May, a team of 24 Y5 and Y6 athletes travelled to Woodbourne Road Stadium to compete in the Sheffield Federation for School Sport Primary Athletics Competition. The children were a credit to Nook Lane both on and off the track and we are all incredibly proud of them! Some of the children performed so well in fact that they have qualified for the Sheffield Primary Athletics City Finals.

I would like to extend a massive thank you for the parent helpers and Mrs Quick who came to support and help organise the children on the day. They all made sure the event ran smoothly and that there were no missed events! THANK YOU!

A huge well done to those who took part and good luck to those children who have made it to the final!

Mini-Red Tennis Competition - Thursday 5th May 2016

On Thursday 5th May, 8 talented Y4 boys and girls were able to compete in a Mini-Red Tennis competition at Forge Valley. We were lucky enough to enjoy some incredible weather and the children certainly showed off their talents in the glorious sunshine!

The two teams of four performed extremely well and encouraged each other enthusiastically. Both teams managed to finish second in their groups, both narrowly missing out on top spot by the smallest of margins.

A huge well done to those who took part and a massive thank to the parents who provided transport and support throughout the evening!

Year 6 Netball

The Year 6 netballers had a fabulous afternoon on Saturday (05 March 2016) at the Sheffield High School tournament. We entered two teams, who both played superbly.

One of the teams won all 8 league matches and went on the win the semi final. Unfortunately, we lost in the final. The girls came home with a silver medal. All 16 girls played brilliantly. Well done.

A huge thank you to Caroline and Donna for training the girls each week. Also thank you to 'Friends of Nook Lane' who provided our new kit.
