FOOTBALL FESTIVAL - JUNE 2018
Children from Years 1, 2, 3 & 4 have taken part in a Football Festival at St John Fisher's this week.
The festival was a non competitive sporting event; the aim of the event was for the children to have fun playing football against other schools.
The children were a credit to our school and represented Windmill brilliantly. They showed great sportsmanship. It may not have been competitive but Windmill definitely won a few of their matches scoring some World Cup worthy goals and some fantastic saves that Pickford would be proud of.
"Our team did really well and I enjoyed playing." - James 4P
"I enjoyed meeting children from other schools." - Dante 3R
"I liked playing football with my friends." - Layla 3W

The swimming gala at Dewsbury Sports centre last night was a wonderful evening. The children were an absolute pleasure to be with and Mrs Wilson and Mrs Thompson were very proud of them. They were extremely sporting, enthusiastic, determined and supportive of one another and even other schools too. They were a delight.
Well done to Harvie who was courageous when he was missed off his heats by the swimming teachers but then swam alone - to a packed sports centre - to get his individual time.
The girls team came 2nd overall, and the boys came 4th.
Izzy won silver in individual breaststroke
Emilia won silver in individual freestyle
Boys freestyle relay won gold!! - Jake, Finlay and Connor

Whilst the Mini Reds were playing their matches, the Mini Oranges played five games winning every one! They made it to the final against Roberttown C Of E Junior & Infant School and played a great game coming second and winning a silver medal.
Well done Windmill!
