Number of Children Who TOOK PART IN SPORTS EVENTS :


YEAR 3/4 RELAYS 31st January

This week, we took 30 Year 3/4 children to a Team Activ Relays Competition at Outwood Academy Carlton. The children were split into 3 teams, where they competed in a variety of relay races. The children were outstanding, not only in their sporting ability, but also their behaviour and sportsmanship. One of our teams even came second, claiming the silver badge! Well done to all the children who took part and a huge thank you to all the parents who came to show us their support!


Our West League team played their first ever matches this week. For many of the players, this wad their first ever time playing football competitively, and they didn't disappoint! The scorelines didn't do justice to how hard the team worked, and after a shaky 10 minutes to tart each game as they got used to the pitch and each other, they pulled together and out in some fantastic performances, and most importantly: had fun!

Yet again, our KS2 cross country runners did Churchfield proud! Not only was their behaviour and attitude impeccable, but their achievements at this event were outstanding . All the children who attended the finals placed well, and should be immensely proud of themselves. Yet again, our year 3 girls blew us away. A huge congratulations to our undefeated 1st and 2nd places, Erin and Poppy, on your outstanding runs. Also bagging the silver medal for the year 5 boys was Finlay! A huge thank you to all those who came to Cannon Hall, it was fantastic to see so many of you supporting the children!


A fantastic day for the Y3/4 football team! As well as behaving outstandingly, they performed to their best ability! Despite a loss in our first game, we went on to win our next two matches. Thank you to all the parents that turned up to support Churchfield School!

As well as a record breaking number of children qualifying for the finals, we even had some race winners! And if that wasn't enough: our Y5 and Y6 teams had a clean sweep of the team awards! Most importantly, everyone had a fantastic time (despite the weather!)

September 2017 - Y3/4 Cross Country Qualifier

What a fantastic day we had at the Year 3 and 4 cross country event! All of our students did amazing; they really pushed themselves to complete the course! Not only did we have a large number of children qualifying for the finals, we also had a number of top 3 places. Our Year 3 girls team absolutely smashed it, claiming 1st, 2nd and 3rd place! One of our Year 4 girls claimed 2nd place, and both our Year 3 and 4 girls teams took the top place! What an achievement! We are looking forward to the finals in November!
