I would like to personally thank all the participants for all their efforts.  I am extremely proud and privileged to see determination, team work, endeavour and positivity in difficult situations as things don’t always go our way! We never give up and continue to learn, grow and come back stronger, which is why we have built such a formidable reputation over the years.

South Yorkshire Cheerleading final

On Friday 22nd March Thornhill’s Cheerleading Squad competed in the South Yorkshire School Games. They ‘danced’ to an 1980s theme. They were very colourful and their costumes were admired by many of the spectators. They came an extremely impressive 4th out of 10 teams. 

Hockey

On Friday 8th February both the Y5/6 girls and boys hockey teams competed in the South Yorkshire Finals in Doncaster. It was a very cold afternoon and both teams played well, but sadly were knocked out in the semi finals.

Gymnastics.

On Thursday 7th February the Y3/4 and Y5/6 Gymnastics Squad competed in the Rotherham Gymnastics Final. The Y3/4 team came 6th and the Y5/6 team came 3rd. We were very impressed when one of our Y3/4 girls had the highest score out of nine teams and one of our Y5/6 girls had the highest score out of the teams she was competing against.

KS2 intra-class sports

INTRA CLASS PLAYTIME COMPETITIONS

After a few weeks of competitions, every team has played each other at all the different activities – dance, dodgeball, football and basketball. Team SF continued their winning streak within the Y3/Y4 classes and remain clear winners.  However, after being at the bottom of the leaderboard throughout the competition, Team VD managed to have the highest score and be the overall winners in the Y6/Y5 classes –  they beat the previous winning team (Team CW) by just 1 point.

Intra-class sports competition

All the classes have now completed their 3rd round of competitions.  Although Team SF are still ahead in the Y3/Y4 league, the gap of 12 from round 2 has now closed to just 7.  In the Y5/Y6 competitions, Team CW is still in the lead, however, they have extended their 1 point lead and team VD ahve now overtaken Team KH.
