Sport at Weston Green School

Posted on: 16 Oct 2020 by Weston Green School

Sport at Weston Green School

Like so many things right now, the sports programme and calendar at Weston Green has had to adapt to the current situation. By now all of our KS2 children would have represented the school in fixtures against other schools. This is always a highlight for all of our children, irrespective of their sporting ability. Wearing the school colours brings out a competitive edge and match day performance in them all. 

We feel the “competition” element of sport is so important to children, and so the sports team wanted to replicate this as best we could. We also took the opportunity to teach cross-curricular skills. In preparation, the boys were coached in netball and the girls football. After some initial reluctance, the pupils understood why learning new sports can improve their overall sporting ability as so many skills are transferable between sports. 

The ultimate aim was to have one large competition with multiple teams. So last week there was much excitement when these teams were announced. Would you be in Summers’ Stormtrooper, Beal’s Bears or Morgan’s Monkeys. For those in Upper Key Stage 2, the teams were led by the sports mentors, so which of our seven sports captains and mentors would you be with? 

Because of various children isolating this week, these plans have been put on hold. However we ran practice mini tournaments. As anticipated, the children relished the opportunity to play in a competitive situation. There was teamwork, collaboration, compromise and new found skills on display. At the time of going to press the sharp shooting in LKS2 blues has given them the edge and in UKS2 teamwork and collaboration in the purples saw them take the early lead.
