Izzy has been at Normanton Sports Acro Gymnastics club since she was 3 years old. For the last 2 years she has trained for 3 hours 6 days a week and trains every other Sunday.
Izzy and her partner Chloe were competing for NSA at Barnsley Metrodome which is where the Yorkshire NDP Qualifiers “National development plan” take place for all the gymnastics clubs from around Yorkshire.
Izzy and Chloe were competing against 17 grade 4 pairs from around Yorkshire. They came 2nd achieving a personal best score of 27.00 out of 30.00 which consists of Artistry, Execution and Difficulty.
As they came 2nd they have qualified to represent Yorkshire at the Inter-regional championships in Southampton, which puts them up against all the other gymnasts who also qualified 2nd from the other regions throughout the country.
The 1st place winners from each region go straight to the British Championships where the winner of this would represent Great Britain.
Well Done Izzy and Chloe!

Reception and Key Stage 1 Visit to Filey
Our Reception and Key Stage 1 children had a wonderful day at the seaside on Tuesday. Thankfully the weather was kind to them and they were able to play on the beach, building sandcastles, racing, collecting shells and digging holes.
Lunchtime was a massive picnic on the beach followed by an ice cream treat.
We would like all of you to know how proud we were of the children’s behaviour, which was exemplary and how pleased all the staff were with the compliments we received from members of the public who commented on what delightful, well behaved children we have!
(Something we already know!!!)
Please see below an email we received this morning from Mrs Cate Walker who was in Filey on Tuesday.
I'm sure, like all headteachers, you are proud of your school. Judging by the excellent behaviour and superb organisation of the outing to Filey on Tuesday this week, your pride is well justified. We had made a trip to the coast on Tuesday to escape the inland heat, and decided to pitch our 'camp' within a few yards of your youngsters and their helpers. It was a delight; they were well hatted and sun creamed of course, and clearly had a great time all day. Everyone had loads of fun and the young people were clearly absorbed in little 'projects', taking turns to go off to the loo presumably, and then to get a few treats. They took turns to go and paddle and I was particularly impressed by the light touch but highly professional and quiet care and supervision the adults were giving. And all done with lots of smiles. Even at the end of the day when we happened to be preparing to leave too, everyone was still in a good mood. Even the final trip to the toilet was managed with great thoughtfulness, with remarkable respect shown for other people waiting. There was no shouting, no tears and no bad behaviour. The children were pretty good too!
I wanted you to know that we noticed and that it really enhanced our happy day at Filey. Well done to everyone involved.
With best regards
(Mrs) Cate Walker
