Primary X Country

We took a team of 48 runners to Weelsby Woods to compete in the Primary X Country competition last week. The weather was kind to us and the children were fantastic. In total, over a thousand children from across N E Lincs competed in the event. Individually, there were winners medals for Tilly, Tabby and Fareese, with Ila coming home third. For the team trophies, the first four runners in each team had their places added together to create a team score. The Year 4 Girls came third and the Year 3 Boys came second; whilst the Year 3 Boys, Year 5 Boys and Year 6 Girls were all winners. Well done everyone!

York – That’s all Folks

So that’s it. We’ve taken part in our last activity, taken a final walk down the Ouse and had a spot of lunch. The coaches are loaded and we’re on our way home. Year 4 have been fantastic company and great ambassadors for Signhills.

EFL Cup Northern Finals

Congratulations to the A team, who represented Signhills and NE Lincs in the EFL Kids Cup Northern Finals at Bolton Wanderers Academy. The boys victory in the GTSET EFL Kids Cup saw them progress through to the tournament.

After successfully navigating the league stage, they were beaten in their semi-final 5 – 3 by Oldham, who went on to win the cup.


Congratulations to our swimming squad who participated in the county swimming gala. Second place for both the boys and girls gave us an overall second place.

York Update

After a stroll / march down the river, we went to our first two visits. We found peace in the Minster, some interesting smells in the Jorvik and chocolate-heaven in the Chocolate Story.

World Book Day 2019

This year we will be celebrating World Book Day on Friday 8th March.

Our theme is Witches and Wizards so we would like the children to come dressed as their favourite Witch or Wizard!
Ideas might include The Worst Witch, Harry Potter, Wizard of Oz, The White Witch and Merlin and there will be a prize for the best costume in each year group.
During the day the children will take part in a carousel of activities across the school for a foster a love of books and reading.
Thank you in advance for your support.
