This half term we introduced our new sporting values to the children. The values are Be fair which is about treating people equally and thinking of other, Be connected which is working well with others and showing great teamwork, Be inspiring which is setting a great example to others and Be ambitious which is working hard and never giving up on your goals.

 

These four values together make a great sportsperson, and this is what we are challenging the children to do every week.

Boys and girls football matches vs Henley in Arden 

 

FINALLY !!!! after almost two years, we were able to invite Henley in Arden to play a football match. Both sets of teams were brimming with excitement as for some this was their first ever football match or at least the first in two years.

 

Both teams played the game in the right way, with lots of great teamwork alongside lots a great football on both football pitches. The respect shown by both sets of players was outstanding and contributed to a great afternoon.

 

The girls ran away 5-2 winners but the boys were unfortunate to be on the wrong side of a 6-3. Both teams played really well and should be really proud of themselves. Lets hope this is the first of many matches.

Bound to Beijing 

 

Next week sees the return of our interactive home activity tool Bound to Beijing (Travel to Tokyo). Children will be competing in their class groups against each other to try and reach the mountain top in Beijing. Activities which they log at home will be converted into metres travelled and help them along their journey up the mountain top. There will be two prizes for the children to earn sports equipment for their class. The first prize will be given to the class that reaches the mountain top first and the second will be given for the class that reaches the top of the mountain the most times till the winter Olympics finish.

 

Year 6 won both competitions last year and used their prize money to buy some space hoppers, a balance kit and a catch and pad set for their class to use during break/lunchtimes and golden time. This is the chance for the other years to try and beat year 6 to prize or will Year 6 defend their crown.

 

The staff will also be taking part in this interactive tool and will logging any activities they do at home.

You can log activities by following this link https://www.getset.co.uk/app/log-activity and typing in Tanworth in Arden. You will also have to find your class as every class will have their own page to log activities.
