Wow! I can’t believe it, another very busy term of sport is over!
This term has been full of sport. The term started with Year 5 having an Inspire+ coach for their Hockey PE lessons. The class did us very proud in these lessons, working hard and listening to help them improve and improve is what they did. The progress the class made was brilliant and it was fantastic to see them all taking part and being able to play matches at the end of the term, well done year 5!
Next up was the Virtual School Games football competition. This competition included 4 different challenges: planets dribbling, coconut shy, pass masters and hot feet/penguin feet. Each child was then given a score and the top 5 boys and the top 5 girls from years 5/6, 3/4 and 1/2 have been entered into the SW Lincolnshire competition to compete against other schools in the local area. We look forward to receiving the results next term! Speaking of results, we have had an excellent result for one of our pupils. Last term we took part in the Virtual School Games one mile competition and again the top 5 boys and girls from each year group were entered into the competition. I would like to say a huge congratulations to Roxy in Year 5, who out of 900+ girls who entered the competition came 3rd in her year group. She showed great determination and really pushed her self to achieve the best she could! Well Done Roxy!
Following on from the football competition, we had our first Inspire+ Ambassador assembly, with Olympic swimmer Lizzie Simmonds. It was our first ever virtual assembly with an ambassador, but it was just as good! Lizzie spoke to us all about being confident and how to show it!
After Lizzie, we were into December and Christmas was on everyone’s mind, including Inspire+ as they introduced their Active Advent Calendar, setting the children a challenge to complete each day to complete their own Inspire+ Active Advent Calendar. The children have loved taking part in the challenges, some of which were: Reindeer races, a Christmas circuit, running the distance from Grantham to London, snow ball throwing practice and many more! To round off the term of sport, our Young Ambassadors had one last job, which was to take part in their Legacy tour training. This is an assembly they will be doing for the school to continue the Legacy from the 2012 London Olympic Games. I’ll be looking forward to watching them take the assembly when we return next term.
Finally I would like to say, thanks to everyone for their continued support and taking note of the information sent out regarding warm PE clothing as we continue at this time to try and do as much PE outside as possible. I would now like to ask, if we can try our best as a team, to ensure our PE kit is the school PE kit as much as possible, including sensible coloured tracksuit bottoms and a Belmont PE top.
Thanks again for your continued support.
Have a great Christmas!
