Sports Crew Leaders
We are lucky to be supported by Northamptonshire Sports who help us train up some of our children to be part of a sports crew. The Sports crew then organise, run and report on sporting activities during lunchtimes. The sports crew also help organise and support big sporting events in school, such as the Sainsbury's School Games Sports Day in the summer.
We have 12 new sports crew from year 5. Eight children went to sports crew training and they are feeding back their new skills to the other four. During Healthy Schools week the sports crew ran a competition every day for groups across the school. Watch out for the reports from each group.
Reports from the sports crew
Healthy schools week reports!
During healthy schools week our year 5 sports crew organised competitions through the week.
Not in my backyard - Reception - Charley and Kacey
Not in my backyard was fun, we enjoyed teaching it.
Noughts and Crosses - Year 3/4 - Lauren
About 10 children turned up and played our game. It was fun.
Football Club - Year 1/2 - Jacob and Anna
About 25 children came to our club, and we started ff with a warm up to get their muscles ready to go. When we finished that we put some football drills and activities together to help with their learning of football and to help them progress their skills. We then ended the session with a quick match and a penalty shoot out. We organise teams and have a team talk, and remind children it's about trying your best, not winning. We also give a man of the match to one person on each team. We run the session every Monday at 12.30
Ready set go!
Recently Mrs Murphy and Mrs Cahill have kindly set up a running club for KS2. The sports crew got involved and helped out the teachers. All the participants and sports crew really enjoyed it and had a lot of fun running. Quote from Estelle “I really enjoy the club, it’s definitely worth joining and I have learnt a lot in the past weeks!”
