Congratulations to Annie Williams, Francesca Brint and Victoria Barlow who has all been selected for the English Schools’ Track and Field Cup in July. We wish them all very good luck.
I observed Laura use dice that can be written on in her GCSE lessons today (see picture attached). I know some people use cardboard ones, but I thought that these could prove quite useful to people for a variety of things in lessons as they can be made very subject specific and will last a bit longer than cardboard ones!
Laura gave the girls 3 dice which she had written on and a blank one onto which they had to write actions to include in a piece of choreography. The dice supported a choreographic technique called ‘Chance Dance’ where the girls had to roll all the dice at the same time and create parts of a dance based on whatever the dice displayed.
You can purchase these from YPO.

Well done girls. There was some great tennis played
The Junior and Intermediate Athletics teams competed in the North West Regional A Final on Tuesday 16th June. Perfect weather for Athletics at Robin Park, Wigan.
As it was Emma Simpson’s birthday – her mum very kindly baked us some speciality cakes!!! And they were delicious.
There were some pleasing results all round.
A flying start for Victoria and Assante, put Victoria in 2nd place (13.3s) and a personal best time for Assante (13.4s).
A great achievement for the AGGS athletes to get both teams to the A Final, competing against the best teams from Greater Manchester, Lancashire, Cumbria, Merseyside and Cheshire.
The Inters finished 9th overall, but scored more points than in the qualifying County round. The Juniors finished in 6th place.
Well done – a very enjoyable, successful day.
Congratulation to the year 8 teams for their results in this friendly match.
