We are part of the ‘Outwood Together’ group of schools and work hard to organise a range of different inter-school sports tournaments for our children here at Wrenthorpe Primary School. We love to work as part of a team and always strive to be the best we can be. We are very competitive and love to win but we are also very graceful in defeat.

We Are An Active School…

We are really working hard to become an active school. Throughout our school day we ensure that ALL of our children become more active through their lessons, playtimes and assemblies. All of this is in addition to the 2 hours of PE that we offer in curriculum time. Take a look at our video that show all of our children working as a team to create a whole school dance.

An Active Assembly!

Mia Jones – Our Talented Gymnast

Mia Jones, our talented gymnast, spent time in Las Vegas with her gymnastic squad. What a once in a lifetime opportunity. We are all so proud of you Mia!

Hula Hoop Challenge

We were inspired by the Olympians taking part in the Hula Hoop Challenge After Rio so we decided to have our very own! Every playtime we practise and at the end of each half term we have a competition in the hall infront of the whole school. Below are our fantastic Hula Hoop champions for Autumn Term 1. Well done to all the children.

Street Dance Year 6

Dance Workshop Year 1/2

Multi-Skills Workshop Year 3

Some specially selected children from Year 3 were taken to Kingsland Special School to take part in some Multi-Skills activities. The children had the opportunity to work alongside children with a range of disabilities and gained a real sense of enjoyment and achievement whilst doing so. Not only was it a wonderfully inclusive afternoon but also a pleasure to see just how kind and considerate our children were when assisting others who are less fortunate than themselves. They certainly did the school proud! Click here to read the ‘match report’.
