Ever fancied giving running a try? Why not take part in the weekly 2km junior parkrun at Shelley College? Parent volunteers are always welcomed too!


EYFS/KS1 Cross-country (finally!)

admin on: Sports Blog

The weather may have kept postponing the EYFS and KS1 cross country but, finally, after a very long wait, it was able to go ahead on Monday 11th October. Over 550 children from across the Shelley pyramid took part - that's nearly 3 times as many people at Scissett!

A massive well done to the 25 children who represented our school - we know we will have some excellent contenders for the Kirklees Games in a few years time.

Also - a special mention has to go to Maisie in Year 2 for coming second out of all the Year 2 girls. Well done Maisie, you wore your medal with well-deserved pride!


Cross-country Round 2 @ Newsome Academy

admin on: Sports Blog

After our amazing performance at the Shelley College cross-country, Miss Goodall was thrilled  that FIVE children qualified for the next round at Newsome Academy. 

The children competed with lots of schools from across the Newsome pyramid and performed brilliantly. Everyone showed determination and teamwork by trying their best and cheering on their team mates!

Everyone finished in the top 20 but a very special congratulations to Charles for coming 3rd and gaining a medal!


Marathon Fever!

A big well done to everyone who competed in the London Marathon this weekend. The runners showed us how to persevere and never give up on your dreams - giving everyone at Scissett something to aspire to!

If you have been inspired to take up running, why not check out the Shelley Junior parkrun? It takes place every Sunday at 9am at Shelley College.


Sport at Scissett

admin on: Sports Blog

What an active start to the year we have had so far! All children have come back into school full of energy and enthusiasm for taking part in sport. It really has been wonderful to see so many children engaging in Supermovers and Wake Up Shake Up around school too.

We are really pleased to have Jacob from Huddersfield Giants working with us as a partner officer again this year. Children will be having lessons with Jacob throughout the year to learn a range of skills and sports. This half term, we are all focusing on athletics and Invictus Games, whilst Year 4 have begun their swimming lessons.

We are also excited to announce that sports clubs are able to restart! Amorai in Year 3 is very excited to be attending the girls football club on a Monday, where she wears her Watford FC kit with pride! There’s also a KS1 Fitness club starting this week with Jacob and KS2 will have the chance to take part in this next half term.

Mr Davidson and Mr Killock from the Middle Schools came into school on Tuesday 21st September to teach us how to pace ourselves when running. Archie in Year 2 said “you need to stick at amber because you’ll get too tired if you don’t” but Niya in Year 3 was a little more competitive: “you mostly do amber but when you can see the finish line you’ve got to go green to win!”

A big well done to the 20 KS2 children who attended the cross-country at Shelley College last week too. Miss Goodall was so proud of you all for showing great determination and self-belief. She is also over the moon to be taking FIVE children to the next round at Newsome Academy next Monday (a new Scissett record!!) A special mention to Charles in Year 4 for coming first out of all Year 4 boys in the pyramid. He had a beaming smile and was warmly congratulated by all his cross-country teammates.

Unfortunately, the EYFS/KS1 cross-country event was rained off this week but check back in our next newsletter to see how they did!

Events coming up this half term:
Tuesday 5th October – EYFS/KS1 Cross-country at Shelley College (rescheduled from 28th October)
Tuesday 12th October – Year 2/3 Girls Football at Scissett Middle
Tuesday 19th October – Year 2 Multi-Skills at Shelley College
