A Year of Sport 2017 -2018

What a year for sport at Birkwood! Mr. Campbell and Mrs. Porter worked tremendously hard once again to provide some wonderful opportunities for our fantastic children. The children loved the skipping performance in the Sports Assembly too! We must also thank Mr Sabin and all the enthusiastic parents who have supported the children in many events across the borough.

Sports Day 2018

Sports Day was a great success, the weather was superb and it was wonderful to see so many families supporting the children.  Once again, some parents and children were saying that it’s their favourite day of the year! The children tried so hard and we definitely have some sporting stars of the future!

Many thanks to Mrs Porter especially and all of our staff who helped to ensure the event was another success!

Many thanks to Mr. Campbell & Mrs. Porter for their organisation of the event, to the Year 6 children for creating this film, and to the staff and Mr. Sabin who adjudicated at each discipline.

Year 6 have enjoyed working on their handling skills. They worked on ball manipulations, and tested each other’s abilities to catch a tennis ball at a range of heights. Remember – catches win matches!

#RefsInSchools

Children in Key Stage 2 were given the chance to meet Darren England and they completed a challenge for him. They had to invent a piece of equipment that would make an assistant referee’s job much easier. 

Ideas in Year 6 included: scented, coloured sprays to replace cards; waterproofing spray to keep clothes dry; a drinks ‘bottle’ to prevent dehydration; and a timepiece which also measured distance to help the referee measure ten yards on a free kick.
