Preschool Mini Sports Day!

Preschool took part in their first ever Sports Day and had so much fun!

They each took part in the sack race, egg and spoon race, dressing up race and the overwhelming favourite... welly wanging! They worked cooperatively in teams and enjoyed cheering each other on. The children also loved that so many grown-ups joined in with the adult egg and spoon race. Thank you all so much to all those who attended, you all helped to make it really special for the children!

All the children were amazing, showing resilience and determination when learning how to ride a bike.

Dave's Facebook page provides advice on how to find the best and most affordable bike for your child.

Year 5 School Trip to Yeadon Tarn

Beech and Willow class visited Yeadon Tarn where they participated in activities such as Kayaking, orienteering and problem solving games. The children demonstrated fantastic teamwork, resilience and perseverance (and for some, great swimming ability) throughout the day. The children conquered a whole range of emotions and the long walk home in what was a brilliant day for all.


Children from Y4, 5 and 6 took part in a brilliant orienteering event held at Nunroyd Park. The children’s enthusiasm was remarkable and they represented St Oswald’s in an excellent way. Four teams from our school took part, two in Y4 and 2 in Y5/6. They all showcased their amazing skills and resilience and all our teams finished in the top four of their respective events. Well done to all the pupils who took part.

Sporting Update

On Monday, eight girls from year 5 and 6 competed in a football tournament at Yeadon Westfield School. The girls played unbelievably well and showed determination and excellence to make it to the semi-finals of the tournament. All of us at St Oswald's are so proud of the way the girls played and the brilliant manner in which they represented our school. Thanks goes to Guiseley Community Foundation for hosting such a terrific event.

On Tuesday, a group of year 6 children took part in an excellent netball event at Guiseley High School. The children showed wonder to learn the skills of netball and engaged excellently in the skills based games. When it came to the games at the end they played with so much skill and perseverance and won each of the games they played. We were all extremely impressed with their sportsmanship and the effort they showed to develop their netball skills.
