‘Learning to Succeed’

Sport at Homerswood

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 work closely with the Sports Department at Monks Walk to organise inter-school competitions as well as offer staff training to teachers.

Welcome to Virtual Sports Week!


Here at Homerswood, we are not going to let a pandemic stop us from having our annual sports day! We do however, need to make sure we are being sensible and safe so we are going to have a virtual sports week instead! Our virtual sports week will be jam packed full of fun challenges for you and your families to complete across the whole week! It will take place on Monday 6th July until Friday 10th.


You will have a set of 18 different challenges to complete which will be uploaded on to our website on Monday 6th July (please see below) – I will also post a link to this on Facebook on Monday morning too. For each challenge you complete, you will be awarded 5 points for your house team. Your class teacher will send out details of your child’s house team prior to Virtual Sports Week. Try to complete as many challenges as you can, in any order that you wish. The more you complete, the more points you will score for your house team! It does not matter how many laps you complete or how quickly or slowly you complete it, you will still be awarded 5 points for attempting each challenge. You must send a video or photograph (photos will be easier) of you completing the challenge on your Google Classroom account (Year 2 to 6) or usual year group email to your teachers if you are in Nursery, Reception or Year 1. You will only be awarded your 5 points if you do this!


Certificates will be awarded for your participation! Certificates will be –

Bronze – 1 challenge completed

Silver – 2 to 10 challenges completed

Gold – 10 or more challenges completed


You won’t be alone in completing these challenges! We are going to be posting ‘Beat the Staff’ videos and pictures on Facebook throughout the week so keep your eyes peeled. See if you and your families can beat them!


You have until 12pm on Friday 10th to get your videos and photographs in for the challenges you complete. Scores will be added up and announced by the end of the day on Friday!


Will your house team win? Good luck and most importantly, have lots of fun!


Thank you for your continued support,


Mrs Penny
