This term has been short, but very, very busy with lots of PE and Sport. Our clubs started up again with some new additions as we have offered: Tag rugby, Y3/4 football, hockey, table tennis, netball and circuit club.
We started the term with our first event of the new year, New Age Kurling, a very enjoyable experience for the team to play and experience a Paralympic sport. Our team did brilliantly, improving throughout the whole event, scoring some points and eventually winning a game!
In PE lessons, many classes have again worked with me, but Year 4 have had the opportunity to work with Inspire+ Gymnastics coach Carol. Again, like New Age Kurling, all of the children have showed improvement and have enjoyed their time working with her too, even I learnt loads! Some children this term have also started well-being mentoring with Inspire+ ambassador Sophie Allen, this will help them progress and grow in confidence over the course of the programme. We then had the great experience of another fantastic assembly from Sarah Outen, Inspire+ ambassador and adventurer.
Next up was the Paralympic half day and Inspire+ Legacy tour. Our young Ambassadors led our assembly brilliantly and confidently and some of our classes had the chance to experience Boccia during our Paralympic half day and part of the Legacy tour. This wasn’t all our ambassadors had to do for the Legacy tour, the following week we travelled down to Harrowby Infants and read out the Inspire+ Pledge and handed over and signed the flag for Jonathon Broom-Edwards and the Olympic torch.
This term saw the return of our Intra-School competitions with Year 5 and 6 taking part in a Netball tournament and Year 3 and 4 taking part in a football tournament, this giving our pupils the opportunity to participate in competitive sport and to use the skills they have learnt in their PE lessons. Finally this term we took part in the Rotary club annual Swimarathon, where we took a team of 24 to the Mere’s and raised money for the cause!
Next term is looking just as busy and exciting for our school PE!
Thanks for your continued support and a big well done to all the pupils for another amazing term of sport!
