Hunslet RLFC Rugby Tournament
Following our coaching from Michael Nuttal at RLFC, 17 of our Year 4 and Year 5 Rugby Team attended a tournament at John Charles Stadium. Both the teams played two games as well as participating in a cross bar challenge. The children used their skills Michael has taught them in their training session, thinking about passing backwards with technique and their defensive line. The children enjoyed the cross bar challenge with two children managing to hit it on their first attempt so they were awarded a signed rugby ball!
Our Year 4 and Year 5 team both played very well, showing respect and determination throughout. They were all awarded with a free Hunslet RLFC tshirt! Well done to our Year 4 and Year 5 Rugby team!

Nursery Sports Day
Nursery were very excited to participate in their very first Sports Day event! The children were organised into colour teams and took part in a relay challenge. They all had a practice race before competing for a medal or a sticker. The children all had lots of fun moving and traveling in different ways with a range of equipment. The relay race involved stepping into a hoop and pulling it over their heads, walking across a balancing beam, walking with a quoit on their head before throwing it into a bucket and then running to a cone, around it and then all the way back to their team! They were all fantastic. Well done Nursery!

Clean Air Day- Play Street Scheme
On Thursday 20th June, thanks to Leeds City Council, we hosted a Play Street for Clean Air Day. Clean Air Day raises awareness of how air pollution is having an impact on our health which will enable people to act on making UK cities cleaner, healthier and greener for us all, especially children.
Years 3-6 came out and participated in different games including benchball, relay races, kerby and rob the nest.

The children had a fantastic time being able to play safely out in the street, be active and breathe in cleaner air!
Marathon in May
Throughout the month of May, Clapgate have been participating in the Marathon in May challenge. By taking part in the daily mile, children and staff have been able to clock up and log a number of miles to try reach the 26.2 mile goal. Scores are being logged in classes and we even had a special Fun Run Daily Mile day on Friday 17th May. This involved pupils and staff running an extended daily mile course with added obstacles such as hurdles, agility ladders and hoops. Children have been sponsored for taking part in the event to help raise funds for the Jane Tomlinson Appeal which helps raise funds for poorly children and adults.
Thank you to all those who have supported us within this! The class who runs the most miles in May will be awarded a prize!
An Olympian visits Clapgate!

The children also participated in a fitness circuit with Joe which involved star jumps, mountain climbers, spotty dogs and more! Joe also ran a growth mindset workshop and Q&A with each year group too.
To celebrate Joe Roebuck attending Clapgate, the children gained sponsorship money which will help our Great British athletes with their training and the resources they can access. It is amazing to think that the children of Clapgate we help a GB athlete get to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics!
