Our KS2 children have been put in to teams, each week there is the opportunity for the children to earn points for their team. It is a great chance to showcase our value of Together We Succeed and We Care About Respect by positively developing our communication skills in our learning. At the end of the half term, there will be a 'Bubble Champions Playoff' whereby the top teams in our Year 3/4 bubble will play each other, and the same in the Year 5/6 bubble. Keep track of our class scores below:
Each week, we have challenged the children in KS2 to a selection of PE challenges, which when completed earn their team extra points. Our first week has seen excellent participation during playtime and lunch time. We are also encouraging the children to adapt the challenges and make their own 'Creative Challenge' for a friend to enjoy, which we will also share with you each week.

We had some fantastic adaptations for week 1's challenge including:
On Saturday 2nd November, we were so proud of the children who took part in the Sale’s Junior Cross Country race. Lydia, Polly, Olivia, Phoebe, Hayden, Ben and Joe represented Holy Family School. We were so proud of their stamina and Growth Mind-set taking part.

Year 5 and 6 Football Tournament at Manchester United Foundation
On Tuesday 7th January 2020, fifteen Year 5 and 6 pupils had the exciting opportunity to compete in The Premier League Primary Stars Schools 2020 Tournament organised by The Manchester United Foundation at the Cliff Training Ground in Salford, accompanied by Miss Shingler, Jess and Mrs Billington, where our two teams played six back-to-back matches against other schools from Manchester. Wearing the Holy Family colours, the children were ambassadors of all of our school values; they played together as a team, supporting one another and showed impeccable sportsmanship. In victory and in defeat, all children played with determination and smiles on their faces. Our teams consisted of boys and girls who had been attending Jess's after school football club in the Autumn term, which gave them the opportunity to put into practice what they had learnt. Our Year 6 captains, Orlaith and Phoebe, did a fantastic job! The organisers told Jess that our school really took on "the spirit of the event", entering the only mixed gender teams and children who were there to enjoy the "love of the game".
