GETTING ACTIVE @ Cordwalles Junior School

(PE and Competitive Sport)

 

We are delighted to let you know that following a lot of hard work by the staff, Cordwalles Junior School has been awarded a Silver Mark School Games Award for the second year by the Youth Sports Trust.  This is a scheme that  rewards schools for the quality of their sport provision during the 2016/17 academic year.  As you can see from our newsletters, we are thoroughly enjoying sport here and doing lots more.

 

2017- 2018 Sporting Year

 

Autumn Term Update

 

  • Participation in Competitive Sport: 28.1%  Participation in Sporting clubs: 21%

 

 

  • Surrey Heath Football and Hi-5 Netball League Games

 

We have played 4 Year 5 and Year 6 league games against other local Surrey Heath schools. We are playing better, moving into space and communicating as a team more effectively. The teams are learning a lot from playing more experienced teams.

 

  • Year 6 Football Festival @ Frimley Lodge 4G

 

10 children represented Cordwalles at this festival. They played four games and came 4th in their pool, beating the team that eventually went on to win the festival. Goals were scored and our defensive skills were put to the test.

 

  • Year 5 and 6 Girls Football Festival @ Frimley Lodge 4G

 

10 girls represented Cordwalles brilliantly during this festival demonstrating all the Cordwalles values. They received glowing compliments from teachers from other local schools stating that our girls were at credit to the school. The girls enjoyed every moment of the festival and played brilliantly together to reach the final, but were defeated by last year’s champions - Ravenscote Junior School. We are really proud of you, girls!

 

  • Year 6 Sports Crew Leader Training

 

13 Year 6 children have now received training from Active Surrey, learning how to be lead playground games, inspire the whole school  to get more active. Going forward, they will be running lunch time activities, helping out at a variety sporting events, keeping the equipment neat and tidy and be responsible for match reports. Many of the Sports Crew Leaders are role models as they both attend sporting extra-curricular clubs and represent the school.

 

  • Year 3 and 4 Football Festival @ Frimley Lodge 4G

 

This is the first outing of our newly formed team. They were extremely keen and very proud to be chosen to represent their school. They played really well together demonstrating good passing and defending skills. They drew 2, lost 2 but considering it was their 1st time playing together, they did brilliantly.

 

  • Year 3 - 6 Cross Country event

 

13 children will be representing  Cordwalles at this annual event. This will be our 3rd year in attending and we are hopefully to see an improvement in our rankings. We have a larger amount of year 3 boys joining in this year. Our fitness and stamina levels are improving year on year

 

  • Gugafit

 

Dan White continues to champion getting more active and personal fitness during his weekly hour long sessions with each class. He has introduced termly fitness beep tests to track improvement in fitness levels. Several year 3 boys are fitter than Year 5 and Year 6! Dan also provides opportunities for the children to develop stamina and core stability conditioning. He also runs to 2 of our most popular clubs - Cross Country and Dodgeball.

 

  • Extra Curricular Clubs

 

We have 7 sporting clubs running this term: Hi-5 Netball, Football, cross country, Judo, Badminton, Dodgeball and Gymnastics. We now use an on-line booking system which seems much more efficient for both parents and staff. These clubs change on a termly basis.

 

  • Intra School Competitions

 

Not only are we entering into competitions against other local schools, we also host a number of competitions between the 4 houses. This term will Inter-house Dodgeball, Hi-5 Netball and Football competitions taking place in lessons, breaktime or lunch time, with the aim to involve as many children as possible.

 

  • Year 5 & 6 speedy Hi-5 Netball winners:
  • Dodgeball winners:
  • Year 3 & 4 fast football winners:

 

  • Active Surrey PE Conference

 

Mrs Alley-Mohindra (Leader of PE and Clubs Co-ordinator) attended this annual event hosted by Active Surrey. The focus of the Conference being ‘The Power of an Active School - Sit Less, Move More’ The purpose of the conference was to find simple and effective ways to get us all sitting less and moving more in all lessons, not just PE!

 

Mrs Alley-Mohindra has led a staff meeting to share lots of ideas and activities, many of which are regularly used in class by the Class Teachers. There is strongly scientific evidence that short bursts of physical activity help with our memories, cognition and concentration.

 

From this conference, some Year 4 children will have the opportunity to participate in a Fencing taster session. Plus we have purchased an upgrade of one of on-line planning tools to include Gymnastics and pilates lesson plans for the teachers to use in their PE lessons.

 

  • Playground equipment

 

With the doubling of the Sports Premium funding starting this year until 2020, we have decided to spend a significant proportion of it, this school year on purchasing specialist outdoor fitness equipment, similar to those in the picture below. We hope that this will encourage children to become more active at break and lunch times and will provide a great legacy. Watch this space for more information and future fundraising activities so we can purchase more!

PE

 

 

  • New Team kit

 

As we enter into more and more competitions and festivals, our school kit needs up-grading. In conjunction with our school uniform supplier, 2018 will see a new Cordwalles Junior School kit. The increase in Sports Premium funding is allowing us the opportunity to invest in the kit for football, multi sports and athletics plus  warm waterproof sports jackets for those winter months.

 

  • Get Active Staff team

 

Without the dedication of a committed team of staff, the children at Cordwalles would not be able to have access these opportunities. A special thank you to:

  • The class teachers who deliver fun and engaging PE lessons; teaching new skills and inspiring children to engage in sport and getting active.
  • All the support staff who give up their lunch times to lead training sessions and playing games
  • The office staff who help me to keep on top of all the administration of arranging 30 plus sporting events each school year.

 

Looking forward:
