Wow! What another fantastic term. It has been another busy one, with more competitions, clubs continuing and fantastic PE lessons.
The term started with Year 4 having the opportunity to work with Inspire+ coach Jack in boxercise for their PE lessons. They have really enjoyed the sessions and the effort they put in was phenomenal! Next it was time for football, kicking off with the girls tournament. The team played absolutely fantastic and managed to reach the knock out stages and finished 3rd overall; a fantastic achievement! Following the girls success it was time for the mixed tournament. Again, our team played brilliantly, staying unbeaten in the group stage but unfortunately missed out on the knockouts by only 1 goal! Two fantastic efforts and both teams represented the school brilliantly.
This term also saw some of our children take part in the Inspire+ TAP (Talented Athlete Program). First it was the turn of the 4 selected Year 3 and Year 4 pupils, who took part in a virtual program which finished with a face to face session with Inspire+ Ambassadors Sam and Sophie. Alongside this, we hosted the Key Stage 1 program at our school with Inspire+ coach Lisa. Our selected pupils had the opportunity to take part in 5 sessions working on different elements of sport. It was great to see our children getting involved, improving and most of all, enjoying it, a big well done to everyone!
Our 401 challenge will be continuing into the new year, remember to record all of your activity outside of school to get your class and our school even further on the map! We have remained in the top 3 schools taking part for distance covered all term, a huge success!
Next term, sports clubs will be continuing - Year 5/6 football will be changing to Tag rugby and information regarding other clubs will be communicated shortly. We also have a lot coming up with Inspire+, including Paralympic high jump gold medalist Jonathon Broom-Edwards in for an assembly, fitness mentoring and Year 2 working with a coach for multi-skills in PE.
I would also like to take this opportunity to remind everyone of our PE kit expectations. We expect children to be wearing shorts/tracksuit bottoms or suitable sporting clothing, a Belmont PE top or a plain white or maroon t shirt. They can wear jumpers/hoodies but they must be plain and suitable for Physical activity. In these colder times children can wear woolly hats and gloves for outdoor PE and suitable light weight sport jackets/water proofs.
Thank you for your continued support.
