Well done to all of the children who represented Wylye Valley at the Cross Country event. They did themselves proud, with the Year 3 and 4 having to run a 900 metre course and the Year 5 and 6 children having to run a 1300 metre course.
In total, there were ten local schools competing. In both of the girls' races, we achieved two individual first place finishes, which was fantastic.
Thank you also to all of the parents who attended to cheer on their children and support the school.
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).
