Sports

Saints South West Girls’ Football club

By popular demand, a girls’ football club has been run at St Mary’s.  Although usually our clubs are for everyone, some of the girls wanted to chance to develop their skills separately.  The club was well attended and has led to more girls joining during lunchtime football sessions.

Gymnastics

Pupils have worked with a gymnastics coach, either during PE lessons or as part of an after school in a club. During the sessions, pupils learnt how to jump and land correctly, different ways of rolling and also creating shapes using their bodies in a number of different ways.

Hockey

Pupils in Key Stage Two have been practising their hockey skills with our sports coach.  The pupils put these skills to good use in their intra school tournament, held at the end of half term.

New Age Kurling

Pupils took part again in some New Age Kurling sessions in our school hall.  They learnt about the sport and how it is based on the original curling game, but adapted so that it can be played indoors on any smooth, flat surface, such as a sports hall, rather than on ice.

Accessible Sports

As part of our ‘It’s OK to be different week’, based on the book of the same title by Todd Parr, pupils took part in some accessible sports including Sitting Volleyball.
