Cross Country @ Southdale Juniors

A full day of running up and down hills, up and over ditches and through loads and loads of mud. What could be better. Green Park was the venue for our whole school cross country challenge. With pupils from every class having to compete in a qualification heat before four girls and four boys were selected from each class. Each year group competed with medals for 1st, 2nd and 3rd and a team trophy for the class from each year group with the lowest score.

Year 5&6 Football @ Normanton Junior Academy

Year 3 & 4 Football @ Normanton Junior Academy

As the weather turns slightly warmer into November so the temperature level of the football with some amazing individual and team skills on show. The stand out players on all seven teams were the goalkeepers. With shots raining down on them there were some amazing saves from outside the area to one on ones. A fantastic tournament which came down to the final game. Final results were 6th Normanton Juniors, Joint 5th Sharlston and Mill Dam, 4th South Kirby, 3rd Walton, 2nd Normanton Common, 1st Cherry Tree Lane.

All our schemes of work are full tested through delivery and are constantly under development, adding and refining elements to make the best experience and opportunities fun and simple to teach. Have a look at some of the schemes below plus loads more lesson plans that are available by clicking on the link above.

Curriculum Activities

Wakefield School Sports Network continues to provide a full range of curriculum PE sessions from early years to key stage 4 including invasion games from football to rock-it-ball, striking and fielding activities from kwik cricket to softball, athletics skills coaching from sprinting to javelin, gymnastics techniques from curling to flight, multi-skills foundations from balance to catching and much more... All schemes of work have detailed lesson plans linked to National Curriculum POS's and delivered by qualified teachers and coaches.

Activity Days
At Wakefield School Sports Network we pride ourselves on delivering something different be it a traditional whole school sports day, a nursery fun theme activity afternoon, building bridges inclusion day or a intra-key stage squareball competition we have the experience and resources to provide it.
Tournaments and Competitions
Competition is always at the forefront for what we do at Wakefield School Sports Network. If it is an end of session game, a final lesson in a scheme of work, an intra-school house competition or a inter-school football match we feel that providing the right atmosphere for competition is important. There is always a place for playing your best players but equally sport must be for all and mixed and fun tournaments play an active part in our competition framework.
