The Sports Ambassadors scheme is designed to build the leadership skills of young people and as a result they are empowered to take on the following roles:
- Be the youth voice for PE and school sport in their school and community.
- Promote the positive values of sport.
- Be a role model and champion for PE and school sport.
- Increase participation opportunities and healthy lifestyles for everyone.
Sports Ambassadors for Year 5 and 6 will be announced soon.
On Thursday (28.9.23), Year 2 took part in the Active 60 minutes festival at Altwood School. They joined a number of schools from the borough in making sure they completed their 60 Active minutes target for the day. As well as having lots of fun, they practised their running, jumping and throwing through a range of challenges. The children kept their scores from each event and will have an opportunity to beat their personal best when they revisit the challenges in their PE lesson. By the end of the morning, they were all very tired but looking forward to the next festival!
Our Year 6 Netball team have made an excellent start to the year. Despite only a couple of training sessions, they played out a very close draw with Holyport on Wednesday (27.9.23) and then continued their fine form by beating Riverside on Thursday (28.9.23). In both games they showed high levels of skill and teamwork as well as good sportsmanship. Well done in particular to Alex who scored 7 goals on Thursday! We look forward to hearing about more good results as the season progresses.
