Sport in School

Spring 1

 

 

We are very excited to announce our school young sports leaders programme is now up and running.  This programme is for use at break times and allows Year 6 children to run planned activity sessions with all year groups throughout the week.

 

A group of Year 6 received some fantastic training from Chris Wright Sports Services on how to be a sports leaders and the attitudes and skills they would need to lead others. They worked very hard on this and also created an equipment wish list.  School has ordered many of the items from the wish list and met with the young leaders several times to arrange a break time rota and activity programme that can be used for all children in the school. We will continue to meet up to widen and improve this programme. 

We are very proud of the children for all their hard work and enthusiasm. 

 

In the summer term the Year 5 children will get the opportunity to train as sports leaders too.

Swimming has restarted for Key Stage 2 and the children are having a fantastic time working towards their swimming targets. The children will be assessed during their swimming course and top-up swimming sessions will be offered to children that have found swimming challenging. 

Spring 1

Children will now all have a login for the Fitter Future website.

 

The aim of the website is to help improve fitness levels of childre.  Fitter Future is completely free to use from home and we encourage 1 workout a day. Workouts last just 8 minutes (KS1) or 10 minutes (KS2) and can be completed in even the smallest of spaces with no equipment needed. Every time your child completes a workout their class teacher is notified and has the option to print out a personalised certificate as a record of achievement. There are also monthly 'Fitter Family' challenges that encourage adult participation! Your class teacher will have given your child their username and password. If you are unsure of this please either ask your teacher.

 

The class that is the most active will receive the Fitter Future trophy in assembly and the child that is the most active at home that week will receive a certificate.

 

We can't wait to see how you get on with this.

We won!

We applied to Primary Stars for the opportunity to get free football equipment and kits for the school.

We received an email this week to say our application has been successful. Below is some of the equipment that we have won for our school. This will be fantastic for the children and I know many are eager to use it.

The children thoroughly enjoyed the Box2bfit session that was ran in school today.

The programme involved:

  • Up to one hour sessions all to timed music tracks
  • 2 minute boxing fitness exercises
  • Using medicine balls, fitness pads and mitts, skipping ropes and blueberry bounce balls
  • The children were fully active for over 30 minutes
  • They worked in pairs motivating each other
  • It was great fun for everybody involved
  • Great for intra-school competition
  • It allowed CPD training for teachers provided on the workshop day 
  • Fits in with Ofsted Recommendation in their report- 'Beyond 2012- Outstanding physical education for all',  in that all teachers and sports staff should try to improve pupils’ fitness by keeping them physically active throughout all lessons and engaging them in regular, high-intensity vigorous activity for sustained periods of time. 

 

We have made plans for Box2bfit to return to school in the summer term to run a parent and child session. This will be an exciting opportunity to work with your child. 

Autumn 1
