This year our Sports' Ambassadors are Vahin, Daisy, Jake, Matthew and Oscar. They were appointed at the beginning of the Autumn term and have already made an impact during lunchtimes. Their aim to make play times more active for every child. Our timetable of clubs below has been working well for this term, and it is updated termly with the choices of the children themselves!
Our intra-school competition in Summer 1 was called Slam Dunk. Participants were challenged to see how many baskets they could score in 1 minute. Well done to our KS1 and KS2 winners who received a basketball each, and our KS1 and KS2 runners up who received a sports bottle each!
This year we continue with the Golden Mile initiative. It is a safe, simple and measurable health & physical activity. It aims to inspire and encourage participants with a focus on fun, rewarding personal achievement. Over the course of the year, we keep track of the miles that the children have run or walked, encouraging healthy competition with themselves, their peers and other classes. It is run by Year 5 children, who keep a record of the miles run and enter the information on line. Children can earn themselves rewards for reaching different milestones.
Mr Hopkin-Jones came in for the day on Friday 24th May 2019 to deliver a taster session for Boxercise. All the classes really enjoyed trying this new sport!
Thank you very much for all those who took part in our Sports for Champions event by sponsoring your children and helping them to get excited about our visit from a GB Athlete, Ezekiel Ewulo. We raised an incredible £870.50 as a school. Children who raised up to £15 received a signed postcard from Ezekiel, whilst children who raised up to £35 received a signed poster from him. Impressively, some children managed to raise more than £35 and were rewarded with an instant photograph with Ezekiel which he signed for them.
Ezekiel led all the children through a fitness circuit and delivered an inspirational assembly at the end of the morning. He shared the story of his journey, gave a long jump demonstration and answered many of the children's questions.
