Hayfield Primary School - News and Events

Gymnastics

What a thoroughly lovely morning we had last Friday at the High Peak gymnastics competition. Our team of gymnasts, Molly, Amber, Yassmin, Erin, Oisin and Daniel, worked so hard in the week leading up to the competition to perfect their routines. They had 2 routines to learn and perform individually, and a vault. The support that they showed to each other was lovely to see, helping each other to practise, remember their routines and improve - fantastic. This

support continued on the day as each and every member gave their best to their team performance and showed real passion to their sport. Well done to all the team, who were not placed but the competition was of an extremely high standard. Indeed Padfield Primary, the winners, have been crowned this week as champions in the Derbyshire County finals. Well done to them. 

Athletics

Monday saw the Year 5/6 winning athletics squad attend the High Peak finals at St Thomas More School. What an event! Run by England Athletics and the sports leaders at St Thomas More they had the children inspired, enthused and energised. The noise at times was deafening as everyone cheered on their runners. We were now competing against all the other large school regional winners, so competition was going to be tough.

We started solidly with good performances in the relays and the two plus two races. Winning races came from Jack and Rio, Emily and Alicia, and the girls hurdle relay, Beth, Megan, Amelia and Jess. Special mention to Sam Fleet who threw himself through tunnels, staying on his feet in his relays obstacle relay.

Sports Hall Athletics

Sports Hall Athletics

Sports Hall Athletics is a great opportunity to take a large number of children to compete as one team representing their school. 18 children went to New Mills for the Sports Hall Athletics competing with 6 other schools. Everyone's points went towards the total team score. The noise in the hall was deafening at times with everyone supporting and cheering on their friends. All children competed in 2 running events and 2 field events. The boys were on the track first and sprinted fantastically to win both the sprints and also a relay. The girls starting on the field managed to win both the long jump, the triple jump and the throw. What a fantastic start! They then switched over, the boys matched the girls in the field also winning the same 3 events. We have some amazing jumpers in our school! The result of the day however was the girls’ track events with Hayfield winning all 6 race events. This was quite some achievement.

Well done to all and next week we will get to do it all over again at the High Peak Finals. Team Members: Harry, Will, Charlie, Harrison, Jojo, Alicia, Natalia, Beth, Sophie, Katy, Daniel, Rio, Jack, Sam, Amelia, Emily, Madeleine and Jess. 

Kinder Choir Concert

Children from Years 5 and 6 did themselves, their teachers and the whole school proud last Saturday at the Kinder Choir Concert at the Pavilion in Buxton.  They sang beautifully, behaved impeccably and looked very smart in their navy jumpers!  A special thank you to Mrs Horton and Mrs Goddard, who gave up their day to support the children throughout the day.  A big well done to all.

Young Voices 2016

On Wednesday 2nd March, 34 children from Years 4, 5 and 6 went to the Manchester Arena to participate in the 20th Young Voices concert. As in previous years, the behaviour of the children was fantastic and fun was had by all. The actual concert was amazing – highlights should now be available on You Tube- and the children (and adults) sang and danced their hearts out! Thanks to the PTA who made a donation towards the cost of the coach.

Hello Everyone It was a very difficult decision to make this morning. The forecast was mixed and forever changing. There was no snow at 4 0’clock this morning and the roads were wet, so it didn’t look like it would settle anyway. Living in Tideswell, I have to rely on both the weather forecast, what other schools are doing and what my colleagues and governors tell me it is doing in Hayfield. I always start from the premise that the school will be open unless it is impossible or unsafe to do so. ...more

Hello everyone Hope you all had a lovely week with your children. It's lovely to have them back and ready to learn after their break. I just wanted to mention that a number of staff have commented recently (and supply teachers always notice this) on how more and more of the children are going out of their way to show kindness and politeness to both other children and adults alike. This is lovely to see and shows that our new year resolution and regular reminders about kindness are paying off. Thank you, children, your kind words and actions are really appreciated and make a big difference to the atmosphere in school. ...more
