End Of Term Sports Round-Up

Term 1 and 2 have been extremely busy in the world of PE and Sport! Term 1 kicked off with Monday madness with three lots of Inspire+ on the same day. We had the FA inspired games, lunchtime led games and Little Movers for our Reception children. We also had Inspire+ for hockey PE lessons in Year 4. During both terms, Year 5 were busy swimming every Tuesday. We made the decision to move back to the Meres this year and the children have done thoroughly well, all making excellent progress. 


Term 2 saw the introduction of School Games competitions and festivals. We started the term with the mixed football tournament and our team represented the school brilliantly. We then attended the badminton festival with a team of KS2 children taking part. This also saw us being given the opportunity to have a badminton club at our school which will be taken by the Grantham Badminton Club coach, Rodney. During this term we also had Teach Active from Inspire+. This is an active learning intervention which children from across Year 3 and 4 accessed. We also had Year 4 netball PE lessons with Inspire+.


Our Young Ambassadors received their training during this term and started very strongly, preparing a school notice board and helping the school offer the most active clubs we have ever had. This is because the Young Ambassador team organised and led lunchtime clubs across KS2, so over the term we have offered: netball, Year 5/6 football, Year 2/3/4 football, table tennis, basketball, hockey, boxercise, gym and an extra Year 3/4 football for those who weren't already in the after school club. We have our fingers crossed  that the Girls football competition will go ahead next term after numerous cancellations. Our term finished with some excellent news after our children attended the Lincolnshire Sportshall Athletics County Trails, 9 of our children were chosen for the next phase, so a huge well done to Logan, Amelia, Arabella, Daniel, Railey, Leah, Esmee, Lily and Jaden. We wish you all the best on this great opportunity! 


Next term we already have a lot to look forward to. Our Year 4s will start swimming and our Year 1s will be working with Inspire+ for dance. The competitions start ramping up next term as we have our first entry to the Primary Penathlon. We will also be attending Sportshall Athletics competition, Boccia and New Age Kurling. Our Young Ambassadors will also be leading the Legacy Tour in our school and a team will be attending Ropsley to hand over the tour to them. The Swimarathon is also next term and sponsor forms have been sent out to those selected to take part who can swim 25m so we hope to raise lots of money as a school. Finally, we have a busy term with Inspire+ Ambassadors next term. We have well-being mentoring and assembly visits from Sam Ruddock, Joe Roebuck, Jonathon Broom-Edwards and Dai Greene.


I would like to say thank you to everyone for their efforts to wear correct PE uniform, the school has looked a lot smarter on PE days and we would like this to continue as we move into the New Year. A reminder that kit should be a Belmont PE top, black bottoms and suitable footwear. The introduction of the Belmont PE hoodies has also meant even more children are looking even smarter on these days. If your child doesn't have a Belmont hoodie a plain black jacket/jumper should be worn on PE days.


Have a brilliant Christmas and thank you for your continued support.
