An action packed term of Sport

With Christmas fast approaching and 2018 almost over, we have been reflecting on what has been a busy term of sport.

This term we changed our PE uniform to new colourful house polo shirts and orange stripy Games tops. Pupils now look really smart and the feedback has been overwhelming positive. We also changed our Games timetable to allow us to have more fixtures and minimise disruption to other subjects.

We played an incredible 65 matches this term, from cross country races to individual games and tournaments. The vast majority of these games were held in Games lessons and we also hosted the ISA North London Football event for the second year in a row. This year, we changed from a Year 4, 5 & 6 event on one day, to two seperate days so that we could include our Year 3 pupils as well. This means that every girl in Years 3 to 6 has played Football this term, with some of the Year 6 girls having played 14 games in the term.

For the boys, we extended our Rugby calendar with games against UCS for the first time, combined with our usual fixtures against Belmont and The Haberdashers' Aske's Boys' School. The change in the PE timetable has really helped pupils’ development in Rugby as now we can split the boys into ability groups across two year groups, to allow us to provide opportunities for everyone to play at a level that suits them best.

As we move into the Spring term we can again look forward to a very busy sporting calendar. The boys move onto Football, where we have major tournaments for both the Under 11 and Under 9 age groups, as well as plenty of games for all pupils in Years 3 to 6. The girls move onto Netball and have lots of games to look forward to as well as the ISA Netball Tournament to prepare for.

I would like to take this opportunity to once again thank all the staff who support the PE and Games programme at Norfolk House, the parents who support both myself and the children and finally the children themselves who have thrown themselves into sport this term with energy and enthusiasm. This really is about them and they embody our three sporting aims: enjoyment, participation and improvement.

So enjoy the Christmas break, and take a breath before we dive back into a busy sporting term ahead!
