Premier Sports!

Premier league

Last Friday we had an exciting delivery of brand new sports equipment.

During the summer term, we were awarded a football grant from the Premier League programme 'Primary Stars'. The scheme is in place to try and make core curriculum subjects more active and the equipment provided can be used across many different subject areas. Putting the new footballs to good use, the children have been progressing on to modified games to encourage them to move and pass into a space, rather than everyone on both teams chasing the ball.

The children have also been impressing in netball, discovering more advanced communication skills in order to move the ball up the court without holding it for too long. Each class continues to progress at different levels, with our youngest children mastering the early stages of throwing and catching and our oldest developing tactics and rules in the full game.

OP Rugby

We always enjoy hearing about your sporting successes outside of school. This weekend we had some rugby stars playing in an under 8’s tournament at Manchester Rugby Club. Some fantastic rugby was played, with the team winning the tournament and also receiving the fair play and sportsmanship award; a brilliant achievement. At St Martin’s Academy, we like to encourage children to join teams outside of school as it has a variety of benefits including increased confidence and skill level. If you have any sporting activities that you would like to be celebrated, please send in your photos and they will be featured on the sports update weekly.
