21.12.17 – Great end to 2017!

It has been a great end to the first term at Balby Central celebrating Christmas and we have even managed to fit in a bit of sport! Last week our KS2 dancers put on a great show for parents and carers showing off their great routines they have worked tirelessly on over the past half term. This was accompanied by Balby Voices who sang beautifully! Big thanks go to Mrs Hodgson, Miss Eaton, Miss Bedford and all the volunteers involved to help prepare!


On the playground, intra-school sport has been getting tense with some cracking finals! Alfie and Jacob took the Y5/6 Badminton title in a close contest. Meanwhile team Tornadoes were crowned Y4 basketball champions, in a tense victory over team smash, 4-2. More to look forward to tomorrow morning, with the Y3 Football final kicking off at morning break time (The Powers V Footdown) and our badminton champions take on their biggest challenge yet, Mr Mynett and Mr Short.

Many thanks to all the children involved over the last term in all sports and physical activity in and outside of school. Special thanks to all staff working hard at clubs and parents for your support at fixtures. We look forward to continued success and participation in 2018! Merry Christmas!

Mr Wilson

4.11.17 – Talented dancers and further football success!

Another busy couple of weeks for PE and sport at Balby Central. Year 4/5/6 children were fortunate enough to take part in a ballet workshop last Monday with the Northern Ballet school. All the children tried their best and enjoyed the chance to take part in an activity which was new to many. Many thanks to Mrs Hodgson  for organising the visit and a huge congratulations to those children who have been invited along to additional sessions! We clearly have some very enthusiastic and talented dancers!


Last Wednesday a group of Y3/4/5 pupils travelled to Badsworth  primary school for their first friendly football fixture of the year. Our Y3/4 team played brilliantly to win 8-2, whilst the Y4/5 team won what was a very tight and tense game, 2-1. All players were exceptional, playing well together as a team, with some moments of brilliance to score a number of goals.

Attention now turns to intra-school sports competitions as we get closer to the finals! (Y3- Football,Y4 – Basketball, Y5/6 – Badminton)
