Sport is very important to all of us at Homerswood. We use our Sports Premium effectively to enhance the sporting opportunities that we are able to give our children as well as ensure that our staff are able to teach effective lessons based on solid subject knowledge. We pride ourselves on finding a balance between providing children with the support to participate in sports whilst encouraging the competitive spirit we believe is an essential skill to learn whilst young.
We hold a Sports Day each Summer in which children are encouraged to achieve points on a variety of activities as well as compete against each other in team and individual events. Parents are invited to come and watch and cheer on their children.
We work closely with Monks Walk to ensure that children have the opportunity to play in inter-school competition to further develop their skills and abilities. We also are lucky to have young leaders from Monks Walk come in to teach the children multi skills sports and activities.
In order to support out Outdoor Adventure learning Years 6 and 4 participate in a residential trip in which they have an opportunity to body board, take part in low ropes activities, learn archery and raft build.
To encourage a healthy, active lifestyle, we also complete the Daily Mile every day before lunch, which the children thoroughly enjoy. They are able to walk, jog or run for a full 15 minutes. The benefits are to improve the physical, social, emotional and mental health and wellbeing of our children – regardless of age, ability or personal circumstances.
