We have had another busy, but amazing term of sport! The term saw the start of lots of new sports clubs, including our KS1 sports club, where we have focused mainly on football and space awareness. We have also had our new cheerleading club with Miss Allen; Y3/4 cross country with Mrs Kemp and our lunchtime C4L circuit club where we have learnt lots of new exercises and enjoyed a fitness work out with our aim at becoming fitter and healthier through sport. Our new team sports clubs have been Y5/6 tag rugby, where we have been learning a new sport for many, in preparation for the tag rugby competition next term and our Y3/4 football who also will be playing some matches in the new term. These clubs were all in addition to our netball club and our table tennis club. This term also saw the introduction of our new outdoor table tennis table, kindly awarded by GAPS, for use at playtimes and lunchtimes. Year 1 and Year 6 have also had the opportunity to have PE with Mr Togher; Year 1 focusing on football and Year 6, tag rugby.
We took part in one competition this term – goal ball. Our team of pupils had the opportunity to try a new sport and represent our school, an event they enjoyed very much. We also entered 3 teams into the Grantham Rotary Club Swimarathon, which was a great event to be involved in. Collectively, our 3 teams swam 303 lengths whilst also pledging to raise £435 for the cause.
Our Inspire+ Legacy Challenge focus has been Jonathon’s challenge, which includes a task to join a new club. We will have a lot of completions this term due to how many of our pupils have attended a new school club.
Our Young Ambassadors have been very busy this term, organising teams and events whilst also hosting the Legacy tour assembly where we were set the challenge from Sam Ruddock and Sophie Allen to try a new sport, softball. This meant that every class in KS1 and KS2 had the opportunity to try this new sport, something which everyone enjoyed very much. I was very proud of our Young Ambassadors when they passed the Legacy tour onto Little Gonerby Primary School, doing the whole assembly for them!
To finish the term off, we will be completing our first of 4 attempts at our KS2 personal challenges, to see how far we can run in 15 minutes. This is in addition to our Y3/4 New Age Kurling and Boccia intra-school competition and our Y5/6 tag rugby intra-school competition which will take place on the last day of term.
