Congratulations to Team Kenny who are this year's Sport's Day winners! Thank you to all of our children for taking part and to all the parents who were able to come and cheer everyone on. 

 

Toddler Sports Day

 

We held a Sports afternoon for the children starting in Reception in September 2017. All the children had a great time and enjoyed participating in lots of non-competitive races, including egg and spoon, sack, space hopper, throwing and running. Parents enjoyed enjoyed a parent and child race too! Friends of TCP provided refreshments to parents and grandparents. Children enjoyed a drink and ice lolly after all their hard work, with all children receiving a medal for being brilliant. Our current Reception children proudly demonstrated the races and cheered everyone on. 

 

 

 

 

Autumn Term

Our penalty shoot out adventure at Preston North End...

Well done to the 7 children from Year 5 & 6 who enjoyed a fabulous afternoon at Deepdale on Saturday 1st October. They got the opportunity to watch Preston v Aston Villa and meet Deepdale duck. The best bit by far was going on the pitch at half time in front of 17,000 people to take penalties against Moss Side Primary School. The children felt very nervous but were so brave and did TCP proud. A once in a lifetime opportunity!

Full match day report to follow.
