The Golden Mile

What an end to our mini topic on the Olympics.

Miss Jackson introduced us to our Play Leaders in a special assembly. The children then spent the day in training so that they can 'run' the Golden Mile each lunchtime. A track will be set out, the lap measured and children will log the distance they run each time. Certificates are awarded from 10 miles and the ultimate challenge is to log 150 miles in an academic year. Lots of our budding Olympians have already set themselves this challenge!

Sporting Round Up

What a fabulous afternoon of sport. Team Appleton and Team Roebuck were both playing in a rounders tournament at Tadcaster Grammar School. Both teams demonstrated excellent batting skills and showed some super tactical play when fielding. Team A won one match and Team R won two. Well Done!


What a fabulous evening of cricket! After a good spirited and hard fought game against Acomb Primary, Appleton Roebuck won their first match of the season. There was some amazing batting shown by both sides and some talented players for us to keep our eye on. Our Man of the Match was Harry Nichols who bowled a 3 wicket maiden in the final over and a special mention to George Dadvar who was playing his first ever game. Well done, everyone!

Our next match is against Bishopthorpe after school on Monday.

Bikeability Superstars!

A huge well done to all our Year 6 children who achieved level 2 in Bikeability. They were a credit to our school with exemplary behaviour shown to the instructors who joined us over the two days. If you bring your certificates back into school we can present them to you officially in next week's assembly.

Upcoming Cricket Matches

Cricket matches will now take place after school on:

Wednesday 22nd June against Acomb
Monday 27th June against Bishopthorpe (Mr Yates has kindly offered to umpire)
Wednesday 29th June against St Wilfrids

Thank you so much for your patience and understanding with the postponements.

Hopefully the weather will be kind to us.

Cricket Match - 15th June

Sadly the cricket match against Bishopthorpe tomorrow evening has been cancelled due to the rain. However, the long term weather forecast is looking much brighter and so the match against Acomb on the 22nd should still be on!

Mr Holmes is busy trying to make the best of the better weather and rearrange the postponed matches against St Wilfrids and Bishopthorpe for other evenings next week. The team will be informed as soon as dates are confirmed.

Cricket Match

Our cricket match against Bishopthorpe will take place at home on Wednesday 15th June - weather permitting. Looking at the long range forecast, we may need to keep our fingers crossed.

Cricket news

Sadly our match against St. Wilfred's on Wednesday had to be cancelled due to inclement weather. This will be rearranged for next half term.

We have got upcoming matches on Wednesday 15th June against Archbishop of York's school and Wednesday 22nd June against Acomb primary. Both matches (weather permitting) will take place here at 4pm.
