National Sports Week 2022
When is National School Sport Week?
National School Sport Week will take place between the 20th and 26th of June 2022.
Why is National School Sport Week important?
The main goal of this event is to highlight how important school sport is for children's mental and physical health. By organizing school events such as sports days or tournaments, you're showing children all the great benefits to taking part in sport. Whether this is getting to play alongside or with their peers, developing their gross motor skills, or increasing their confidence - National School Sport Week is beneficial for lots of children.
We had a great time with the sports coach playing team games. We used our good listening skills to work as a team in a range of different games. We also explored different ways of travelling using sports equipment.
We had a great time with the Year 6 classes taking part in sports challenges. We worked together to take part in a range of races and had so much fun!
On the 23rd we were joined by a fabulous coach, who got our hearts working! It was so much fun to be out on the field in the sunshine enjoying some sports.
Year 1 enjoying their coach
Year 1 had a fabulous time taking part in our mini sports day events. The children where split up into 6 teams, and took part in 6 events. From egg and spoon races, to an assault course, the children where loving it.
Each event was great, but there was a competitive edge to the teams, which class would win come out on top. After 5 events it was neck and neck, it came down to the final round. 1LG where victorious!
A fantastic effort by all.
For our sports week challenge, Year 2 took part in a mini sports day. The children competed against each other in a variety of different activities including sprinting, obstacle courses and even space hopper racing!
We spent the whole morning being active outside. It was so much fun!
Whole School Athletics Competition
We had visitors from Active Future who came into school and held an athletics competition for every year group!
As part of sports week, inspired by our history topic of Ancient Greece, we took part in our very own Ancient Greek Olympics!
Our afternoon started off with an Olympic torch relay followed by different Ancient Olympic games such as chariot racing, racing in armour, discus, javelin and long jump. The four city states of Athens, Sparta, Corinth and Argos battled it out to become victorious.
Our winning team in 4LR was SPARTA! They were rewarded with a wreath - just like Ancient Greek Olympians would have been.
We had a fantastic afternoon!
After our Greek Olympic games, year 4 had the chance to learn some athletic skills from a sports coach. We did a range of team activities and really enjoy ourselves.
