We hosted our largest Rural sports event this year with 6 schools competing in various track events across both Key Stage 1 and 2. Thank you to all the schools who came to Wylye Valley and joined us for the day: Crockerton, Heytesbury, Horningsham, Chilmark and Great Wishford.
Key Stage 2 events were held in the morning, with Key Stage 1 competing in the afternoon. In total, there were about 430 children at our school across the day.
Each race was decided with the winner gaining 10 points for their school total, 2nd place adding 8 points to their school total, with 3rd place adding 6 points. When all of the points were compiled from the 130+ races, the final positions were:
3rd: Horningsham 2nd: Crockerton 1st: Wylye Valley
Well done to all competitors for making it a great day. Thank you also to all the staff from the schools who made the day possible. We hope that parents and relatives who came to cheer on their children enjoyed the festive atmosphere at our school.
Well done to the Year 5 and 6 children who competed at the Quad Kids Athletics event held at the fantastic Bath University sporting facilities. With the hot sun pounding down upon them, they gave their best in the different events - 75m sprint, 600m run, Vortex throw and Standing Long Jump.
There were many schools there comprising of 23 teams. We took two teams and our 'A' team finished 10th overall with our 'B' team finishing 23rd.
Following on from the successful event last year, Wylye Valley have again taken part in the 'Race for Life' to raise money for Cancer Research. The whole school community - children, staff, governors and parents - ran the mile (eight times around the track) with many children claiming far greater distances.
This was a great event, run with great commitment and enthusiasm. Please can you ensure that any sponsorship monies are returned to the school next week. We will then be able to announce the total amount raised for Cancer Research.
Well done to all the children who proudly danced in front of 800 people at the Bath Forum as part of the 2017 Dance Festival.
We arrived in Bath to rehearse at 3pm and the children didn't leave until 9:30pm so it was a long day for them. The show, which featured Wylye Valley and 16 other schools dancing on the night, was fantastic. Our children represented the school with honour and performed their routine to the song 'Requiem for a dream'.
These pictures give an idea of rehearsals, backstage, and the performance. Our Wylye Valley Dance Crew T-shirts were widely admired by other schools there as the children looked amazing.
There is a DVD available of the performance and details are on the order form which is attached below. (I will also ensure that there are paper copies available in the office if you ask for one).

Our levels of participation across a range of sporting activities this academic year have been very high.
This documents shows which different extra-curricular clubs we have offered to children (35 different clubs over the 6 terms), participation levels across the whole school and participation levels across Key Stage 2.
We are very proud of the high participation levels that are being achieved and pleased to be able to offer the different activities to children. There really is something for everyone.
We are proud to announce that Wylye Valley CE Primary School have been awarded 'Gold' status for primary sport provision this year. This has been raised from the 'Silver' award that we gained last year.
Thank you to all the children and parents who have supported all of the sporting activities both inside and outside of school.
To encourage and promote reading across the school, we have Reading Rewards at the end of each seasonal term. For the Summer Term, children in Key Stage 2 who qualified (by reading at least four times every week) were given the opportunity to try archery and street surfing followed by an ice lolly.
Well done to the 38 children who achieved their reading targets.
To celebrate National Cricket Day, all children participated in a cricket tournament. Eight teams, consisting of children from all four classes mixed together, played a number of timed games against each other.
Thank you to Wiltshire Cricket for their lesson delivery this term, giving all children a 'Chance to Shine'.
In a well competed match against St John's Year 5/6 Girls, our own team tried very hard in their first proper football game. An eight goal thriller saw St John's win 5-3 at the end, having overturned Wylye Valley's 2-1 halftime lead.
Thank you to all of the players and spectators for making the match enjoyable. We also appreciate St John's for providing a warm welcome to their school.
Well done to the 33 children who competed for the school in a range of track and field events.
In a close contest, we narrowly finished 2nd overall in the Warminster Small Schools Event.
We were fortunate to arrange a friendly football match with St John's at home for the Year 5/6 Boys team. Thank you to St John's for visiting us, along with the many children and adults who supported both teams so well.
After an evenly matched first half, Wylye ran out 8-2 winners. Well done to all the boys who took part.
The return match (for Year 5 and 6 girls) will take place on Tuesday 12th July at St John's. Letters will be sent home soon to the girls selected for the team.
Well done to the ten children from Newton class who represented our school at this event. We eventually finished joint 5th (out of 16 teams) before the heavy rain and thunderstorms cut proceedings short.
In our first match, we beat Crockerton. We then won our second match against St George's, to set up a group decider against Westbury Leigh. Westbury had a number of players from their local cricket club in the team and their experience showed as they beat us to top the group.
However, as one of the top two runners-up, we were due to play a 5th/6th place decider against Princecroft. Unfortunately, the adverse weather cut this short.
Thank you for turning up and supporting our Sports Day. We had great weather, good competitive events and even ice cream for some. Well done to the parents who were such good sports in the Mums' Race and Dads' Race.
The final results were:
5th place: Avon - 254 points 4th: Nadder - 284 points 3rd: Bourne - 350 points 2nd: Ebble - 378 points 1st: Stour - 396 points
Thank you to all adults and children who raised sponsorship money to aid Cancer Research UK.
