Sports - What's been happening?

Autumn 1

We have started the year really strongly, in terms of the students' participation, performance and progression in sport and physical activity.

The clubs this half term have been a great success as we have had lots of children involved in each of them, filling most clubs to near capacity.  The KS 1 fooball club, ran by Mr Wise, has seen some budding young footballers develop an enjoyment and a talent in this area.  The KS2 netball club has been extemely popular and all the children involved have shown an excellent enthusiasm and good sportsmanship to create an enjoyable and nurturing environment.  Children throughout both key stages have enjoyed participating in the Moky Club on Fridays and it has been excellent to see the older children develop their maturity through looking after the yonger pupils involved.

There has only been one competition for the school to participate in so far which was the year 1 and 2 dodgeball tournament held at Lakes College.  Two teams competed in the tournament where they achieved several wins between them, with one team being one win away from the semi-final.  The games were played with exceptional spirit and the children showed brilliant sportsmanship, being a real credit to our school.

Congratulations must also go to the year 5 children who recently took part in the Bikeability programme which enabled them to become competent riders and remain safe when riding on the roads.

We look forward to the next half term where there will be a range of clubs on offer again to encourage the children to stay active and there will also be a number of competitions on offer for the children to take part in, including: netball, athletics and firls football.
