Our annual school fund raiser will soon be here – Elvington’s Mini Marathon is due to take place in our Sports Week (week beginning 20th June 2022). This year, we are thankfully in a position to be able to invite parents/carers along to support this event.
The children will be running laps of a course set out within the school grounds, and will be asking to be sponsored (all funds will go to Elvington’s PTA). Children will have half an hour to see how many laps they can complete. They are able to walk or run during this time and will have access to a water station.
Sponsorship forms will be sent via email on Monday 13th June.

Children throughout school have enjoyed a range of activities as part of our Sports Week. Here’s an overview of the week:
Climbing Wall Experience
Children in KS1 & KS2 enjoyed a very special experience day, as they were able to attempt ascending a state of the art climbing wall. Trained instructors were on hand to keep children safe and ensure everyone enjoyed
the experience, which they clearly did. Climbing is one of the fastest growing sporting activities. It simultaneously develops coordination, strength, flexibility and cardiovascular fitness. Additionally, important life skills like problem-solving, goal-setting, perseverance, inner confidence and patience were developed. To quote Lydia, “I was so proud of myself for getting to the top – it was great exercise and an amazing experience!”
We had our annual Sports Day (in class bubbles) on Tuesday. It was great to see the effort and sportsmanship the children displayed. Unfortunately, COVID-19 restrictions prevented us from inviting parents/carers.
Lots of laps were completed as part of Wednesday’s Mini Marathon – thank you for your sponsorship of this event. Money raised from this event will help to fund some of the exciting events the school provides for the children. You can still download a copy of the sponsor form here, or please contact Mrs. Greening should you require a paper copy of the sponsorship form.
Sadly, due to the inclement weather, the skate park on Friday 25th June has had to be cancelled. It is now scheduled to take place on Wednesday 30th June. Please check your child’s class Twitter feed…
During our annual Sports Week which begins on Monday June 21st, all pupils will be taking part in our annual fundraising event: The Mini Marathon. Unfortunately this year, parents will be unable to support this event by attending and children will be running within their class bubbles. All monies raised will support the improvement of school resources.
CHILDREN: ONLY ASK PEOPLE YOU KNOW TO BE SPONSORS- DO NOT GO ‘KNOCKING ON DOORS’
Please can all sponsor money be returned to the class teacher by Tuesday 6th July 2021. Many thanks for all your support.
Unfortunately this year our children will be taking part within their class bubbles without the usual parent supporters to cheer them on. The children will be running laps of a course set out within the school grounds and will be asking for sponsorship to raise money for school funds. They will have an hour to see how many laps they can do. They are able to walk or run during this time and will have access to a water station. The children will be bringing home sponsorship forms in due course. We do hope that you will support your child in this fun event. Thank you,Mrs Granger
We are taking part in Sustrans Big Pedal 2021, the UK’s largest inter-school cycling, walking, wheeling and scooting challenge. The challenge runs from 19 April to 30 April. It’s free and we would love everyone to be involved.
We would like to encourage your child(ren) to take active journeys to school on as many days as possible during the event, and join them on their way. You can scooter, cycle or walk. If you have to travel by car because of where you live, you could always park a short distance away from school to still take part.
Sustrans Big Pedal is a great way to get children active, which is important for physical health and mental wellbeing. Active school runs also help to reduce congestion and air pollution outside the school gate. Covid-19 has made active travel to school is even more important. The Department for Education have said encouraging active travel to school helps “to enable pupils to be physically active while encouraging physical distancing.”
A big well done to Years 3 and 4, who won the York Schools Sports Partnership, Virtual Tri-Golf Competition.
We have been asked to step up for a Challenge! We are looking for pupils to take part in a virtual competition. For this challenge, you will need a towel, balance, coordination and stamina!
Place a rolled up towel on the floor or row of cones. Stand feet together with the towel/cones next to the outside of one of your feet. Jump sideways over the towel/ cones making sure your feet stay together finishing with the cone on the outside of the opposite foot. Repeat back and too as fast as you can in 20 seconds.
Each bounce equals 1 point.
Try as many times as you like, but your score will start to reduce if you get too tired. Once finished, go online to register your best score. This way, you can help our school to win the Speed Bounce Challenge!
