Our Team Sports photographs 2021-2022

2021 continued to be unusual in the way that we all had to adapt to life with COVID, and our sporting activities were no different.   This academic year, we hope to get back to more a usual feel, with face to face sporting events against our neighbouring schools starting up again.   We thoroughly enjoyed our first sporting gathering in the first few weeks of term as our Year 6s joined other schools for a Rugby Festival at a local venue.  The children had a fantastic time and thoroughly enjoyed themselves.  We hope to enjoy more of these experiences as the term progresses so watch this space for updates.

Our Team Sports photographs 2020-2021

The years 2020 and 2021 have been unusual one to say the least, and we have had to adapt our sporting activities accordingly.  This academic year, our matches, games and tournaments have been done in year groups.  Thanks to our Sports Coordinator, we have been working our way through the Winter and Summer Sports Challenges which consist of a variety of different sporting challeges in Rugby and Quick Sticks Hockey.  You can find the challenge instructions as downloadable files if your child wants to have a go at them at home.  We would love to hear if you do! 

As well as those activities, we have also been having fun with Football, Boccia, Rounders, Tennis and a number of other activities.  You can see our winning teams for these below.
