Year 5/6 B Team Athletics Competition @ West Craven Leisure Centre
Well done to the team of 12 children from Year 5/who represented the school on Thursday morning in the B Team Athletics Competition at West Craven Leisure Centre. The 6 boys and 6 girls all worked as a team to record some great individual scores throughout the running, jumping and throwing events. The team tried extremely hard and worked well as a team all morning, meaning they finished the morning in Runners Up position = very narrowly missing out on winning the overall event. The children showed a great attitude and their behaviour was a credit to the school. Well done Athletes!

Year 3 trip to Turf Moor – Burnley FC’s Stadium!
Year 3 had a memorable trip to Burnley FC’s stadium on Wednesday due to our link with Burnley FC and the Premier League Stars programme which Gisburn Road are a member of. The children underwent some healthy eating, hydration and exercise workshops before getting the chance to have a stadium tour which included a walk around the stadium next to the pitch, a look at the club’s history and trophies, a look in the director’s box and even a chance to go in the players changing rooms. The children had a great day and all represented the school in a fantastic way. A big thank you to Becky from Burnley FC in the Community for organizing and hosting the trip!
