We began the summer term sports after the Easter break. All classes are taking part in striking and fielding lessons as well as athletics, with the exception of Year 3 who are swimming this term. Extracurricular sports during lunchtimes and after school have also changed to tennis, rounders, cricket, and athletics.
Competitions for this term are in full swing within the borough for both key stages, including the Borough Olympics at the end of the term. Children from Year 1 to Year 6 will be selected to represent our school in different sporting competitions such as tennis, athletics, rounders and cricket. We have also entered the boys’ cricket, and mixed rounders leagues for this term. The Year 5 and 6 netball team ended last term with great impact, coming second in the borough competition on 25th April, despite beating the team that went on to take first place in the competition in a three way final. The two teams we had entered in the competition did themselves proud and represented the school brilliantly. Details of all competitions and fixtures can be found on the Healthy Schools and Clubs page, here on our school website.
We have had one extraordinary highlight so far this term, with our key stage 1 children being awarded the PE and Sports Active Essex Award. Only two schools in Thurrock received this award. Two young ladies from Year 2 represented key stage 1, by attending the awards ceremony with Miss Taylor to receive the award and give a speech to the other winning schools. You may have seen their speech in an earlier blog.
Inter house competitions this year have really got houses in the competitive spirit, Warwick succeeded in being sporting champions in our last inter house end ball competition, and with inter house rounders coming up next week, it could be anyone’s game. You can find full details of inter house competitions on the Healthy Schools and School House Teams page, here on our school website.
We look forward to seeing parents and carers during our sports days after half term, dates can be found on the school calendar.
