Sports - What's been happening?


 Although this half-term has been short, we have managed to squeeze in two competitions for our oldest pupils. In the second week, Year 6 attended a table-tennis competition at St Joseph's. There were lots of enthusiastic children present and even the staff had to get involved! Our Year 6 team enjoyed the new experience and displayed a fantastic performance to achieve first place! Then in the final week of the half-tern, Year 6 attended a cricket tournament at Workington Cricket Club. As always, this was a brilliant event and our school fielded a very capable team. They played well and managed to win all of their games to reach the semi-finals. Later, Year 6 led a multi-skills festival for Year 2. The young leaders were patient and helpful, which enabled everybody to thoroughly enjoy the afternoon!

After school, we continued to offer the much-loved Moky-fit class. All children could attend a cricket club and as it proved so popoular eariler in the year, we reintroduced an outdoor circuit traing club for Key Stage 2. Yoga club also took place each Tuesday lunchtime and was enjoyed by all that attended.

Since returning from half-term, Year 6 have competed in the annual swimming gala. They faced lots of strong swimmers but they remained motivated, tried their best and enjoyed the experience. Additionally, we are now running a summer-camp games club on Monday night and an Outdoor Athletics club on Wednesday night.

Looking ahead, the Workington Cup is to be held at Workington Leisure Centre on 6th July. There are separate competitions for Year2, Year 4 and Year 6 and the children are looking forward to using the new astro-turf pitches! Also, following the typical inclement weather we have rearranged our Sainsburys School Games day for 17th July. We have our fingers crossed that the sun will be shining!
