These activities change each half term providing the opportunity for our children to sample and take part in different sports offering different skills. In addition, Mr Haslam, our Learning Mentor, offers a Football Club throughout the school year. This year we are able to offer.............
Key Stage 1 - Multi Skills
Our Multi Skills club offers a range of sports which incorporate a variety of movement, thinking and communicating skills which are the foundation of different sports or physical activities. Being able to move, communicate and think about what you are doing is a vital ingredient when playing sports.
Key Stage 2 - Netball
Netball is an activity which requires quick thinking, agility and team work. It can help improve aerobic fitness, stamina, strength and balance.
Tag rugby is a minimal contact game in which each player wears shorts with Velcro patches and two tags attached to them. The mode of play is similar to rugby league or touch rugby, with attacking players attempting to dodge, evade and pass a rugby ball, whilst defenders attempt to prevent them from scoring by 'tagging' - pulling one of the attackers' Velcro attached tags off.
Key Stage 1 - Dodgeball
Dodgeball is a team sport in which players on two teams try to throw balls and hit opponents while avoiding being hit themselves. It is a great form of anaerobic exercise. The short bursts of sprinting involved in a game of dodgeball can improve cardiovascular health by lowering blood pressure and pulse, improving circulation and burning calories.
Key Stage 2 - Cross Country
Cross Country running is a sport in which teams and individuals run a race on open air courses over natural terrain such as dirt or grass. The sport builds enormous strength. The hills and mud develop power and resilience in calves, hamstrings and quads. The uneven ground strengthens feet and ankles and keeping balance throughout the twists and turns and dips is tremendous for core strength.
Gymnastics is a type of sport which includes physical exercises requiring balance, strength, flexibility, agility, coordination and endurance. The movements involved in gymnastics contribute to the development of the arms, legs, shoulders, back, chest and abdominal muscle groups. All in all, a great workout.
Athletics is the sport of competing in track and field events, including running races and various competitions in jumping and throwing. By taking part in athletic events healthy habits are built and confidence improved. Coordination is sharpened and teamwork is established.
Bat and Ball
Bat and ball games, such as cricket and rounders, are popular sports which can provide a number of physical and mental health benefits. Improved coordination, stress relief, social interaction and outdoor recreation are all benefits of playing bat and ball games as well as learning life skills by handling victories and defeats.
