Sports Week!

National Sports Week 2019

Well, what a busy week we have had for National Sports Week. We were a little worried on Monday that the weather might ruin all of our plans, but luckily the sunshine turned up and we've had a wonderful week. 

This year’s sports week focus was '5 Ways to Wellbeing' and each of these 5 ways have been focused on in a different way across the school. 

Monday was all about being activeand year 1, 2, 3 and 4 children were certainly active on Monday morning. The children all took part in a rugby session, lead by Dan Robinson from Congleton Rovers Club. They learnt some of the skills for playing tag rugby and were well and truly worn out by the end of their session. By the smiles on their faces, learning this new sport was a hit! Dan is joining us again next week to give year 5 and 6 the opportunity to work with him too. 

On Tuesday we connected with Castle Primary School and played in a friendly match against them at their school. The game was tough but our team played really well and didn't give up, showing perseverance and resilience throughout. A special well done to both Sadie, who did some amazing saves in the goal, and to Luke for keeping the spirits of his team up when things got tough. 

Wednesday was all about giving back and some of year 6 children did just this on Wednesday afternoon by getting our little ones moving. Mackenzie, Luke, Abi and Haydn spent the afternoon on our sports field running obstacle course and races for Acorns and Olive Class. Judging by the laughter and cheering I could hear, I would say the children had a brilliant afternoon. 

This year we haven't just focused on being physically fit and healthy but also about how we keep our mental health fighting fit too and this is a topic we talk about lots in school. So on Thursday we took notice through yoga of what our minds were telling us and each class took part in a yoga session, run by Mrs Cosgrove.

During the afternoon, Bee Active got Oak and Maple class busy again with a netball and dodgeball tournament! 

Which leads us to Friday - LearnOver the course of the week, the children have been learning about different sports personalities, including; Richard Whitehead MBE, The Brownlee Brothers and Dan Sturridge. They have not only learnt about their sporting achievements but also about what characteristics they hold to have lead them to these successes. We have talked lots about those two words, perseverance and resilience and how each of us have these skills we just have to dig deep to find them sometimes. 

A very busy and enjoyable week! 

We took lots of photos and these can be seen below as well as on your Class Dojo pages.
