EYFS Sports Week
We began sports weeks in style with our very first Sports Day event. All children enjoyed taking part in lots of activities such as the sack race, egg and spoon and kicking and throwing. Keeping healthy is very important to us young people and we have been focusing on healthy eating as well as keeping fit and active. During the week we have tried many new types of sports and tried out unfamiliar sports equipment. Clubbercise was an invigorating session of heart pumping exercise mixed with light and music. Bristol Rugby introduced many of us to the delights of Tag Rugby. We practised passing the ball and tagging each other through lots of fun games. We were amazed to be able to play Golf Football where we combined the skills of dribbling and shooting with the aim of teeing off to get the ball into the ‘hole’. We finally rounded the energetic week off with a visit to Page Park in order to use the space for racing, hurdling and throwing athletic equipment such as javelins, discus and hammers. That was a scorcher of an afternoon and we were grateful for the shade the trees had to offer.
Year 1 Sports Week
We have enjoyed a glorious week of weather, which has been perfect for all of the sporting activities that the children have experienced. Sports Day was a wonderful start to our week and we were so proud of how all of the children participated in each activity with such enthusiasm. We have also had an infant agility session, football coaching and a Clubbercise dance lesson. All in all, it has been fantastic!
Year 2 Sports Week
Year 2 have had a super sports week! The children have enjoyed a trip to Page Park, had a rugby session with Bristol Bears, a gymnastics lesson and some relaxing pilates with Mya’s mum, Mrs Miller. They’ve all worked brilliantly as a team and everyone has tried a new sport that they have thoroughly enjoyed. Our sports day was brilliant (especially because of the sun!) and the children showed great positivity and teamwork. We are so proud of all of our children for showing all of our school values for the whole week. Well done Team Year 2!
Year 3 Sports Week
Year 3 have had a great sports week! We have learnt many new sports skills and techniques and had the opportunity to be taught by different coaches too. Some of the sports we were lucky to experience were: rugby, tennis skills, karate, gym and athletics. Then of course we had our sports day. It has been a very active and enjoyable week.
Year 4 Sports Week
Year 4 were lucky enough to visit Saltford Golf Club on Tuesday morning where the children were coached by a professional on the techniques needed in golf. We were told of the potential of a few of the children who are naturally talented in golf so watch this space for some future golf stars! Within the rest of the week, Year 4 have taken part in tennis, foot golf and of course our sports day (well done Willow!). To finish off the week, Year 4 had the opportunity to work with Mia from Bristol Flyers who taught the children some new basketball skills. We have been very proud of their attitude throughout the week and their willingness to try new activities.
Year 5 Sports Week
Year 5 have had a brilliant week! It all started with an inspirational trip to Broad Plain Boxing Club where they had the opportunity to put on boxing gloves and try some bag work under the watchful eye of an experienced coach. On Tuesday, tennis instructor Vicky led the children in some hand to eye coordination games. Karate was next on the menu. This involved some excellent team building activities and the chance to learn how to punch safely and accurately. The children learned and exemplified the Five Principles of the Black Belt which are as follows: courtesy, integrity, self-control, perseverance and indomitable spirit. Sports Day was a huge success, with everyone representing their house fantastically and showing a great growth mind-set. We also squeezed in some foot-golf and a class football tournament which was played in fantastic spirit. The week ended in style with an athletics workshop focusing on baton skills (for relay racing) and a basketball session with Bristol Flyers. Well done to all and thank you Mr. Lecrass for a fabulous Sports Week 2019!

Year 6 Sports Week
Year 6 have had an amazing sports week and been able to try a whole host of new activities and have worked with professionals to hone their skills in indoor bowling, gymnastics, athletics and basketball. Lots of talents were discovered along the way, particularly with indoor bowls where the children quickly improved their accuracy and control once they had learned the secrets of the biased woods! The children also took on a challenge to invent their own sports using 3 pieces of their favourite equipment – stiltconeball is a must-try game!
