Well done to the Year 3 and 4 girls footballers, who used the skills and knowledge from their after school club, to take part in a tournament at Streetly School.  Great fun was had by all and it was a great learning experience for the girls, as well as an opportunity to represent the school.  Many thanks to Mr Sanders (from Streetly) and Mr Smith for getting them prepared.

Well done to the 18 Year 5 and 6 boys and girls, that attended the annual Sportshall Athletics competition at Streetly Secondary School.  They took part in several disciplines, such as: relay, long jump, triple jump and javelin.  Great fun was had by all.

 

School Sports Committee

 

This year will mark the beginning of our first Sports Committee.  Children in Years 3 to 5 will work with the Year 6 sports leaders (along with Mr Pearce and Mr Smith) to help raise the profile of Health and Sport in school.  This will be through organising house activities, acting as learning ambassadors in PE lessons and coming up with new ways of getting our school healthy!

Review of Year 2:2014-15
1..Membership of Streetly Academy Sports Partnership/Youth Sport Trust

Liaison with Streetly Academy facilitated CPD for PE subject leaders and other members of staff to reflect upon and improve practice in PE.
2.Contribution towards Inter –School Sports
The provision of minibus transport for Gymnastics opportunities has increased the number of children participating at this level of competition.
3. Employment of Nicola Burton-Specialist Gymnastics teacher.
Team teaching alongside Y1-6 staff has resulted in the majority of pupils increasing their core stability, improving their co-operative skills and increased their knowledge and use of correct gymnastic vocabulary. A breakfast Gym club to train for an inter-school event provided opportunities for talented gymnasts from Y1-6 to share and develop their skills. The club proved very popular and continued after the competition. There are now 2 Gym clubs operating to widen opportunity and identify talented children for next year’s competition. Staff are more confident in their delivery of Gymnastics and Nicola has provided an effective scheme of work for their use. The scheme includes well focused lesson structures and visual resources to aid progression.
4. To develop Change 4 Life programme within School
Mrs Jones organised an after school Change 4 life programme – this was aimed at boys in Key Stage 2.
5 .Equipment/Training for lunchtime use
Mrs Wark  (Lunchtime Supervisor) continued to provide activities for the children at lunchtimes and has purchased a wide range of appropriate equipment for them to use. This has resulted in a much wider range of physical activities taking place and behaviour has improved noticeably across the age ranges
6. Transport costs.
Payment for transport facilitated participation in inter-school events, particularly during the daytime eg: Gymnastics, Indoor Athletics etc.
7. Equipment Some athletics equipment was purchased prior to the Sports’ days  in summer 2015.

4.School Sports Council
It would be beneficial to set up a School sports Council, with pupil representatives to support intra school house competition and also give their views /ideas about PE in School. There will be some incidental costs associated with this.
5. Football goalposts  may require replacement this year.
