The year got off to a great start with Years 3, 4 and 5 completing their swimming lessons and most children achieving either their 25m or their 50m, 83% of our current Year 6 children can confidently swim at least 25m.
Year 5 and 6 also received specialist rugby coaching from a team of visiting players and coaches from South Africa. This was followed up with specialist training in orienteering and karate.
Year 3 and 4 had similar expert training in hockey, Tri Golf, badminton and dance and KS1 thoroughly enjoyed their karate classes with Mark. Year 4 also did their Bikeability Level 1 in the Autumn term.
We have lots of exciting opportunities to work with professional coaches ahead of us in the summer term including;
We have continued to hone our skills and build upon our considerable success taking part in a number of interschool competitions including;
Lowther Trail Race
The Helm Wind Trail Race
As we move into the summer term we are looking forward to taking part in a range of events, some of which we know and love and some of which are completely new!
Summer term competitions include;
The Appleby Fun Run
KS1 cross country
The Keswick Triathlon
To make the very best of sporting capabilities we have invested in some new equipment. We have several large mats for gymnastic floor work and the teams from Key Step 1, 2 and 3 all have matching leotards and shorts.
We are currently reviewing, replenishing and replacing our sports equipment to make sure that everyone at Appleby Primary School has the opportunity to try and improve their skills in a broad range of sports.
