High 5 Netball coaching
On Monday 6th November, nine children from Year 6 participated in a High 5 Netball coaching session at Lostock Hall Academy. They learnt the rules of the game and lots of skills including different passes and footwork. We are hoping to make up a team ready for a tournament in the Spring Term.
Over the last several weeks 10 children from Years 1 and 2 have worked with Sharn from South Ribble at Cheerleading Club. They have learnt lots of different moves to put together a routine. During the last session of the club the children invited along their parents to watch their show. They did a super job and we are now looking forward to incorporating it into our Infant Nativity production! Thank you to everyone who came along to watch.
Recently our football team has participated in a weekly tournament at Lostock Hall Academy alongside other local schools. Prior to the tournament the team worked really hard in training sessions and even worked alongside Chris from PNE to develop their skills further.
Despite the freezing weather the team enjoyed playing in the matches and were proud to wear our brand new football kit from the Premier League. Well done Cuerden - we are super proud of your efforts!
