Community Sports Day, Saturday 10 November
Thank you to everyone who has signed up for our next Community Sports Day on Saturday 10 November. We’re looking forward to another fun afternoon of social sport, supported by our amazing PTG.
The tennis courts will be open for informal use. If you want to come and play, please feel free to join. We’ve already had some enquiries about playing and we’ll make sure that there are balls for you to play with.
We have entered our U13B Blaze and Varsity Boys Blaze teams into the TISAC Tournaments coming soon. This will be a great chance to offer competitive opportunities for more of our ballers. We hope that they enjoy the experience!
BISAC Season 2
We’ll next be heading for BISAC Season 2: U13/U15 Football, Varsity & JV Basketball, Varsity Rugby & Tennis. Some of our Blaze teams will be entered in the TISAC Basketball tournaments.
Changes in PE
We’ve made an exciting change to the way that we group the students in PE. This will allow them all to enjoy mixed ability and gender groups, as well as a broad range of activities throughout the year.
The students will be in one of 6 groups, selected alphabetically. This has mixed them up and gives them a chance to socialise with students who may not be in their tutor group. They will remain in these groups for the remainder of the year, with one teacher responsible for them.
They will then enjoy a range of activities including different invasion games (basketball, football, rugby for example); net games (e.g. badminton, volleyball); striking games (e.g. softball) and fitness activities.
The focus in PE will remain on students not only developing sport & activity specific skills, but also on a whole range of skills that will enable them to be lifelong learners. At the heart of all this is a hope that our students also develop a love of being active and healthy!
Well done to our U13 Tennis players who competed in their BISAC Team competition this weekend. Our Boys finished 1st place in the Plate and our Girls placed 5th in the Cup. Below are reflections from some of our players:
