Year 1/2 Gymnastics
On the 4th December 2018 Talia, Oska and Noor- Ul-Ain took part in a gymnastics competition at the BEST Centre in Burnley. These children were chosen for their outstanding performances in our gymnastic after school club. The children had to perform a floor routine and a vault routine in front of other schools. The children were a little nervous but remembered their routine and represented the school to the highest standard.
Year 5/6 Sports-hall Athletics
On Tuesday 13th November, 12 children from years 5 and 6 took part in this years Sports-hall Athletics event. Padiham girls came third in the first heat of the relay race and came back fighting in the second round to secure second position. The boys did exceptionally well on the field with high scores in the Javelin event. The girls continued their success on to the field with remarkable scores in the speed bounce and triple jump event. The boys worked tirelessly on the track, but were unable to secure a win due to the baton exchange. The children all did an amazing job! Well done to you all!
Hartley Cup Defeat
Padiham were drawn against Worsthorne in the first round of the Hartley Cup. A much changed side from last year saw some debuts in the match. Injuries also opened the door for others to represent the school. A nervy start saw PPS concede 3 goals in the opening 5 minutes. However, Padiham defended resiliently and had chances of their own before the break. We went in at 0-3 at half time. The second half saw Padiham score 2 goals themselves but conceding another 5 after committing more players forward. A hard-working performance by the team was not reflected in the final score of 2-8. Well done to the team. Good luck to Worsthorne in the next round.
Girls Football CVL
On Tuesday 30th October, Padiham Primary were invited to take part in a football event. The girls team played really well. After a 3-0 loss in the opening game, the girls weren't going to let that happen again. Resilient defending in the following match meant they shut out the opposition after facing an onslaught of attacks. That finished 0-0. The third match saw PPS grab their first goal and keep another clean sheet. A 1-0 victory for the girls. The final two games finished 0-0. A good record for the first girls football event of this school year. Well done to the team!
Boys CVL Football Event
On Tuesday 9th October, PPS were invited to take part in a football event against other local schools. This was an excellent chance for children to test themselves against other teams. The whole team represented the school really well and worked extremely hard in all of their matches. The team came away without a win, but can be extremely proud of the way they played. They gave their all and worked really well as a team.
