On 10th November, Year 4 travelled to Sandylands in Skipton to take part in a football festival organised by Skipton Tennis as part of the Craven Sports Partnership.
Many local school (Embsay, Gargrave, Boyle & Petyt, Greatwood, Water Street, St Stephens, Carleton, Parish) also took part in the event. Year 4 were welcomed at Sandylands all weather pitch by Jonny and were shown to their own zone. There they met their coaches and sports leaders from Skipton Academy.
Firstly, Year 4 children practised skill activities e.g. dribbling, passing, defending, shooting, team work. Then they were organised into three teams ready for some inter school games. The Kildwick teams played short games of football against children of the same age from the other participating school.
Everyone had a fantastic time and shook hands with the other team at the end of each games. Finally, Jonny thanked everyone for taking part and handed out certificates. The participants were reminded of the values that the partnership seeks to promote.
