Greenfield Primary’s 7th Inter-School Games Tournament found a new location!
With so many Barnsley Schools wanting to take part we found ourselves in need of a bigger venue. An obvious choice was Kirkbalk Academy who very kindly agreed to act as host for the day. Not only did they provide a fantastic venue, we were also supported by 6 of their students and they made amazing mentors, so special thanks goes to: Dylan Atkinson, Lewis Graham, Emily Davey, Lewis Burrell, Cassie Wilson and Georgie-Leigh Marsden.
It was a fantastic day...
Mr. Hardy, Hoyland Common, Barnsley
Find out which schools took part and the final results below!
As always we used a variety of different of games which required lots of focus and skills Our pupils had to be quick and able to process things visually at a fast pace! The games played were; Rings Up, Crabz, Doodle Rush, Pass the Bomb and Whoosh
The morning was spent practising the games in schools teams, plenty of encouragement, lots of discussion about the rules and tactics. Dinner time was spent chilling out, during which they enjoyed some 3D jigsaws.
But of course... afternoon was competition time and the atmosphere was electric, the children and adults taking part had oodles of fun!
At the end of the tournament we had prize-giving, with certificates for everyone and trophies for the winning school and highest scoring individual player. .

Congratulations to Hoyland Common for coming out on top again this year. Mr Hardy, Hoyland Commons' Play and Sports Leader said "It was a fantastic day and we are super proud of our team for coming out on top but we got a lot more out of the day than just a winners medal"
Well done Kate Berridge from Hoyland Common on winning the trophy for the highest scoring individual. You were on fire!
We have to say all pupils that took part were fantastic and a real credit to their school. The interaction between children and staff involved was enthusiastic and positive and they all thoroughly deserved their Certificates.
Inter-School Tournaments are a great alternative to sporting events and give those children who are not as interested in sport something to represent their school in. We like to think of them as a “Mind Sport Activity” We simply cannot wait for the next!... it could be at your school...
