Sports Super Stars

This week our Sports Super Stars were our Tri Golf team who competed so brilliantly at Garons last week. Well done Team Friars and we look forward to many more successes in the future.

Outstanding Out of School Achievement!

This week we also wanted to recognise one of our Year 4 children, Sophie Sanders who recently travelled all the way to Amsterdam in The Netherlands for a cheerleading competition at the beginning of April.

Sophie has been training for the last year for this competition and it has been very challenging at times. However, with all of her hard work, determination and practice, she was lucky enough to be selected for not just one but two teams - Thunder Cats and Lightning.

The competition was intense but we are very pleased to share that Thunder cats placed 1st out of 10 teams in their field, while Lighting placed 3rd out of the 4 teams in their category.

Sophie gave it everything she had and her family, friends and all of us at Friars are all super proud of her!

Not only did Sophie get to compete while in Amsterdam, she also managed to fit in some cultural experiences as well and she loved exploring Anne Frank's house which she has been looking forward to telling Mr Smith all about. What a fantastic experience – well done and congratulations Sophie!

Attendance Class 2S won the KS1 Attendance Cup this week with 97.5%, while in KS2 it was Class 3KA who won the Attendance Cup with an impressive 98.5%.

Our overall whole school attendance also improved as we recorded 95.8% across the school.

Team Points

Stirling did the double this week as they won the team cup in both KS1 and KS2. As a result they become the first team past the 800 points mark and look to be running away with the race for the Friars Cup this year. Can they be caught? Watch this space to find out.

Well done to all of our winners this week!
