Sporting Activities at Haworth Primary School
Primary Schools Tour de Yorkshire - this event organised by British Cycling and Sustrans started in Leyburn and finished in Leeds. Our stage took place on Monday 25th June, starting at Shirley Manor in Wyke, Bradford and finishing at Haworth Primary. The Bronte Academy Trust schools were involved in the last 2 legs of the stage, Cullingworth - Lees and then Lees - Haworth.
We have recently participated in a pioneering National research project and the above video is being used by the Youth Sport Trust to promote the Start to Move Programme.
The under 11 girls football team having come top of their group in the recent Oakbank cluster tournament, went on to take part in the Keighley area finals. The standard was exceptionally high and they played very skilfully . They drew twice with Hothfield Primary School from Silsden and triumphed against Ashlands from Ilkley. They conceded no goals due to their fantastic defenders and goalies.
The girls practise every week and have played together since Year 3, they will now go on to play in the Bradford finals in February. A fantastic achievement, Mrs Roberts is very proud of their fantastic teamwork and determination.
Both our girls and boys football teams have been very busy representing Haworth at recent tournaments at Oakbank School. We entered teams in both the under-11's and under- 9's.
In addition, we competed in Cross Country races at Cliffe Castle. Well done to all our children who took part in these activities.

Once again, children from Haworth Primary School had great fun trying to catch our Easter Bunny. This has become quite a tradition here at Haworth. Parents, relatives and children from other classes cheered on the runners as they made their way around our playing field. All runners were treated to an Easter egg.
Our team of mixed Year Five and Year Six pupils, enjoyed playing against local schools at a recent tournament at Oakbank School. They had spent a lot of time preparing for this tournament both in P.E. lessons and in an after school sport club.
Year 5 enjoyed an adventurous 3 days, in the wilds of the Northern Pennines at Robinwood Activity Centre. Working together in groups, they took part in many activities including : climbing, canoeing, caving, zip wire, obstacle course and piranha pool. They gained confidence and self esteem during the visit, as well as learning how to cooperate and communicate more effectively. Many pupils did not want to leave, as they had such an amazing time. It was certainly an unforgettable experience, which will hold lots of fantastic memories for both staff and pupils.
