News and Events at Sheffield Springs Academy

Young Writers Competition

During their first year at Sheffield Springs Academy year 7 students were asked to enter a writing competition run by young writers.  As part of their English lesson, students were asked to write a 100 word story based around a fairy tale. We had many good stories which were entered into the competition and we were delighted when two of our year 7 students, Ellie Moult and Charlie Vaughan, were told that they were going to be published in the Winner’s book, Grim Tales – Across The UK.

As a celebration, the girls were presented with their copy of the published book during assembly. They were also asked to sign the library’s copy of the book, for posterity; just like real authors!

Below are the winning words from our students.

Elsa – by Ellie Moult

There was a girl called Elsa and she was born with ice powers. When she got older her powers got stronger.  She eventually became queen.  The whole village knew that she had ice powers and everybody was afraid.

The next day, she accidentally struck her sister and she was frozen for the rest of her life.  Elsa was so ashamed of herself because she never saw her sister again.  People said that she needed to get locked up until she could control her powers.  But unfortunately, she couldn’t control her powers so she was in prison a long time.

Cinderella’s Nightmare – by Charlie Vaughan

Cinderella heard a bang, she walked out of her room and turned a corner. There, stood next to her grandmother’s painting, was a shadow of something very unusual.  As she walked closer, the shadow got closer.  Every step she took, sweat would drip from her face.  As she took two more steps, she was stopped.  It was almost like there was a glass shield protecting the picture.  As much as she tried getting past, it was no use.  She was not getting to the picture. As she looked forward she noticed the shadow was exactly the replica of her grandmother.

Y9 Netball

We started our A league Netball campaign last night playing Sheffield Park Academy and King Ecberts.  The girls set off slowly and a little nervous but they listened to all the tactics given and applied them brilliantly, they ended up beating Park 5 -7 and King Ecberts 0 – 7.

It was a fantastic start to the season and they were all so proud of their performances. 

Congratulations team on a great start. A special congratulations to Georgia Evans who got voted player of the game for both games by the other schools.

Y7 Football

On Tuesday 29th September we had our first English Schools U13 cup game.  Unfortunately we lost, however the girls were all playing a year up so they were all very proud of their performance and rightly so.  They showed great promise as a Y7 football team and we look forward to the rest of the season with them.

Congratulations team!
