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.

Autumn 2

Over the last half term, our oldest pupils in Key Stage 2 have taken part in a couple of different competitions.  The first competition was the Year 6 netball competition in which all of the pupils showed an excellent team spirit and demonstrated super passing and movement skills and with a little more luck in front of the hoop, they would have been a tricky opponent for any team.  The second competition was a mixed Year 5 and 6 athletics tournament.  The team involved in this competition showed tremendous athleticism, with lots of the children winning multiple events in adapted versions of the throwing, jumping, long distance and short distance events seen at any of the major outdoor athletics compeitition.

The children have enjoyed a number of clubs again this term with moky remaining a popular choice for the whole school, and our newly introduced multi skills clubs have seen lots of our children enjoy participating in physical activity.  The hockey club, ran for KS2, has proved extremely popular and some of the children will have a chance to show their developed skills in a quicksticks hockey tournament commencing next term.  The year 1 and 2 children participating in the multi skills club have showed great enthusiasm and have begun to perform some really tricky skills competently which will help them in a variety of different sports in the future.

Over the course of the next term, we will be offering a Year 5/6 football club, in preparation for the tournament taking place in the Sands Centre in January, and we will also be offering a cricket club for the Year 1 and 2s to aid any of our budding cricketers and improve their skills.  There will be many tournaments for the children to take part in, including: table tennis, dodgeball, tennis and hockey.  As always, we encourage as many people to take part in our clubs and competitions as possible to increase their love for physical activity and therefore, improve their mental and physical wellbeing.
