Sports at Gorseybrigg

Well done to the 2 teams who competed in the Go Ride Cycling event on 21st June at Eckington. One of our teams came an incredible 3rd place. All the children demonstrated excellent behaviour. 

June has also seen our Nursery, Infant and Junior Sports days. We were fortunate enough to have the weather this year, if not a little too hot! But some last minute changes and the use of gazeebos kept everyone safe in the sunshine whilst enjoying the day. Well done to Chantry (red) for winning the junior sports day this year. 

On Monday’s training day in April all staff were trained in a new resource ‘Real PE’, which aims to further improve the quality of PE lessons by inclusive, fun activities which build on the fundamental skills of Agility. Balance and Coordination. This was paid for with the School Sport Premium money from the Government.

 A big thank you to all the people who contributed to the sports week activities: Natasha from the Vicki Durning school of Dance, Louise Rogers for Netball, Alison Tingay for Orienteering, Abbeydale Tennis club and Karen Dobson Road Safety Officer.

Spring 1 half term has culminated in our annual sports week. The opening ceremony saw Year 3 perform their brilliant ‘Volcano’ dance and the whole school sing ‘Going for Gold’. The sun has shone, enabling us make full use of our fantastic grounds. All children in school have participated in a range of activities including mini tennis, netball, tri-golf, orienteering, dance, road safety and a trip to the sports centre where there was climbing, short mat bowls and the virtual studio. Years 1-6 have also competed in an intra school competition in either cricket, rounders or football rounders. Years 4, 5 and 6 have taken on a leadership role; planning and delivering  activities to the younger year groups. These children showed fantastic leadership skills, impressing all their teachers. The annual school walk to Barlow was a perfect way to enjoy our local countryside. Thank you to all those who came with us. The Year 5 class attended a Quadkids athletics event at Mount St Mary’s  and had a great day. 3 children from our school received top 3 places- an incredible achievement out of 300 children!!
