St Andrew’s CE Primary School’s Netball Club squad were delighted to take part in their first tournament this year: the Lincolnshire Schools County Netball Finals at Skegness Grammar School.  The children had been practicing hard during their weekly after-school club sessions and the squad included 8 representatives from Year 6.  The team won their first five matches which put them through to the semi-finals, where they were only narrowly beaten by 2 goals to 1.  Overall the squad came third – a great result for their first tournament together and one which they all thoroughly enjoyed.  As an added bonus, it was wonderful to receive a lovely comment from a teacher from another school on their performance and how friendly and polite the squad were.  Well done everyone involved!


On the last day of term, the school PTA held a non-uniform Crazy Hair Day.  The children looked fabulous, had great fun and raised an amazing £208.45 for the PTA.  The PTA’s events and fundraisers are a much-valued part of school for our children, staff and the wider community and their financial support is greatly appreciated, enabling the school to fund the ‘special extras’ the school would otherwise be unable to support.  Thank you to our amazing PTA.


Finally, this term Year 6 pupils have been busy on their bikes.  The school ran a free Bikeability Cycle Training Course across 4 days.  The course was delivered by Outspoken Training to 30 children who attended the course, with all of them achieving their Level 1 & 2 which prepared them to make short journeys safely on the roads.  The course was enjoyed by all the children and at Collective Worship they shared their experience with the rest of the school and commented:  

“My favourite part of bikeability was turning into a junction, and then safety stopping next to the curb. It’s my favourite bit because I’m quite confident on my bike, even though it was a challenge”.  Olivia

“On day 2 it was our first day of the bikeability where we went out of school. Our instructors taught us lots of new things.  First, we learnt how to start and stop correctly, this was the easiest part of the day.  Secondly, we learnt how to pass a T-junction and how to use the control and sharing positions”.  Luke

“During bikeability, we learnt some top tips. Here are some: get pedal ready and always check your bike over before getting on it”.  Riley

“The instructors were really kind and encouraging and helped us learn all we needed.  The most important thing I learnt was how to signal”. Demi
