Sports Events

 

This term has been very busy for PE activities not only are all classes still participating in our Daily Mile Destinations – travelling around the world visiting 15 countries on their route. They have also all been taking part in this terms competitions.

Infant Agility 

The children in Year 1 and 2 started off the term competing in their Infant Agility which involved running, throwing and jumping. All children enjoyed the activities. The results were sent to our School Games Organiser and compared with the other Dartford Schools. Overall we came 6th and children who were placed within the top five distances/times for each event will be receiving a School Games certificate.

Tri-Golf 

Next was the turn of our Year 3 and 4 children who took part in the Tri-Golf competition. This showcased their pitching and putting skills. The children thoroughly enjoyed the day despite the very strong winds. We definitely have some budding golfers amongst us. Again the scores were sent off to our School Games Organiser to be collated and we await the results.

Outdoor Adventure Activities

Year 5 and 6 were eager to join in their day of activities, including map reading and orienteering, obstacle course and the ultra web. The children took part in their house groups earning house points for each activity for listening, co-operation, teamwork and encouragement.  At the end of the two sessions the winning house was Leeds with 275 points.

Cross Country 

Normally New Ash Green School would host the Cross Country for all the Dartford Schools but due to the restrictions this is not possible this year and therefore we are running the competition virtually with all schools completing the courses in their own grounds and then times being collated by New Ash Green. Pupils in Year 3 and 4 ran 1km and Year 5 and 6 ran 1.5km. The fastest three boys and girls in each year group will then be placed within the Dartford Schools group. Everybody gave the distance a go and tried their best with all children feeling very proud of their achievement at the end.
