Monday 25th and Wednesday 27th June
Over these two days several of our Year 5 and 6 children took part in representing our school in the annual athletics meet held down at Wavertree Athletics Centre. All children participated in track and field events gaining points for the school along the way. Showing great perseverance through the heat, Year 5&6 Northway boys were eventually crowned the small school district champions with our girls coming in a fantastic 4th place. All of us here at Northway are very proud of all the children who represented the school.
We took a Year 6 team to represent our school in the LSSP Kwik Cricket Competition this week held down at Sefton Cricket Club. Kwik Cricket is a primary, high-speed version of cricket aimed mainly at encouraging children to gain and develop the fundamental skills and to take part in the main sport, with an emphasis on participation and enjoyment. All children involved showed excellent sportsmanship throughout the day long event and great respect towards the Calderstones pupils who were umpiring the games.
Our annual Health, Fitness and Safety week saw children throughout Northway take part in numerous activities that looked at the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. Once again the children have shown great enthusiasm throughout the week participating in athletics, daily mile runs, sun safety talks and even developing their very own fitness DVD’s. The children have enjoyed learning about healthy diets and were able to create their own healthy foods/snacks to try. P4C has also been at the forefront of our Health, Fitness and Safety week helping children to develop their communication skills to further develop their cognitive, social and emotional well-being.
Wednesday 16th May
Today, several of our Year 3 and 4 children took part in the annual LSSP Highland Games held at North Liverpool Academy. All children participated in several events from running to the traditional Caber toss. It was a tight contest and unfortunately we were pipped to the post, coming 2nd overall by only a few points. All children involved should be extremely proud of themselves for representing our school to such a high standard. Well done boys and girls!

This morning some of our Year 5 and 6 took part in a basketball competition run by LSSP and the Mersey Mavericks down at St. Margaret's School. With most the children new to competitive sport outside of school it was a great experience for all the children involved. The competition was played as round robin allowing all children to experience the sport and all schools to play one another. Unfortunately, we did not progress to the finals however; all the children had a brilliant time and showed excellent sportsmanship and great respect to those officiating the games.
11th December 2017
On this cold and frosty morning, children from Years 5 and 6 made their way down to the Liverpool Aquatics Centre to take part in the annual Waterpolo Competition. With the newly adapted rules and the pool at a greater depth to previous years, the children took while to settle down and play at their usual high standard, losing the first game. However, they soon came back to win their second with two good goals from Orlando. Unfortunately, with such a high quality of opposition we did not manage to progress to the city finals but with a high level of enthusiasm for the sport I'm sure we will be back again in 2018. Well done boys and girls!

New Age Kurling Competition
28th September 2017
Today KS2 children took part in a New Age Kurling Competition at The Academy of St. Nicholas. New to the sport all children adapted quickly and started to get the hang of what can be a tricky game. With the heats complete, Northway B progressed to the 3rd and 4th place play-off game whilst Northway A progressed to the final. In what were two tense games Northway B finished a very respectable 3rd in the competition and Northway A came out as eventual winners with a score of 5 stones to 1 therefore, making their way through to the city finals.
27th September 2017
Today, boys and girls from years 5 and 6 attended the LSSP dodgeball competition down at Calderstones Secondary School. After a short introduction to the rules the children were ready to go. With balls flying everywhere, at what seemed like break neck speed, the games were close and as tense as you would expect in such a competitive sport. Although we were unable to make it through to the semi-finals the children were a credit to our school in the way they behaved and acted within the games and towards the umpires and pupils from the other schools. Well done boys and girls!
