Sports For All
In order to raise the profile of PE and Sports further in our school, Saint Mary's became a part of a sports alliance group, which is called 'Sports for All'. This is a group of schools from the local area who enter their classes into whole school sports festivals. This is in order to prepare them for upcoming SSP competitions, mix with other schools in sporting events, encourage inactive children to be involved in sports and give them experience of different sports they may not usually take part in.
Year 5 - Tag Rugby
Today the children in Year 5 went to the Bradley Development Centre in order to take part in a Tag Rugby Festival. The children were given the chance to play in a number of drills to begin with the enable them to learn the skills of tag rugby before playing some matches. The drills that they took part in were: throwing, running with the ball with 2 hands, passing behind, scoring a try, dodging and tagging each other. After a quick drink and toilet break the children were then able to mix with other schools such as: Scartho, Springfield and Signhills in order to play matches of tag rugby with other children. They all had a fabulous time and really tried their hardest throughout the morning. Well done Year 5.
Y4 Basketball Festival
On Monday 16th October, Year 4 went to Cleethorpes Leisure Centre to take part in a basketball festival. They all had a fantastic morning practising their dribbling, shooting and passing skills. After that, we split into 4 teams and played a tournament of basketball games. The children tried their absolute hardest and the instructors were blown away by their enthusiasm, determination and how well they represented Saint Mary’s. Well done, Year 4!
