Currently on a Wednesday morning, children from year 3 and above visit Waterworld by coach to complete a swimming lesson and fitness class. The children definitely enjoy the change of pace in the water! The cost of these lessons is £2 per week, refundable if lessons were paid in advance. Yearly a competition is held during school time at Waterworld known as the ‘Swimming Gala’ where the strongest children from each school in the area compete for the title, an honour our children achieved last year. Finger’s crossed for 2018!
More recently the children have had the great opportunity to partake and complete the National Swimathon as a school, everyone is so proud of their hard work to achieve this!
Coaching and Events
We work closely with GSSP to provide a range of coaching, competitions and festivals in various sports across the P.E curriculum. Please see below photographs of just some of the amazing events and coaching we’ve had in school.
Boccia – On Friday 24th May 17 we held our first inter-school competition in Boccia and we had great fun. We hope it can become a yearly event!
In support of Red Nose Day, we held a whole school ‘Danceathon’ in order to raise funds for the national day. Check out the photos below.
