Sport Relief 2018
From 17th-23rd March, Springfield House School took part in this year’s Sport Relief, to raise money to help the charity tackle critical issues affecting people across the UK and the world.
The week-long event saw the children taking part in a ‘Daley’ challenge, set by the charities’ ambassador, Tom Daley. This cumulated in a variety of activities including, football skills, hula-hooping, walking a mile, skipping and throwing!
Overall the event was a huge success with all children participating in the challenges and enjoying keeping fit, whilst raising much needed funds for the charity. Staff too were spotted hula-hooping and skipping away, taking part in the fun, although I think that the children outshone the adults!
To raise money, the children designed and made their own Sport Relief trainer-moneybox. Over the week they hunted down the back of sofas and collected pennies and loose change to fill their shoe. Some classes held challenges to see whose pennies would reach the furthest in a ‘Penny Challenge’. We are absolutely delighted to announce that in total we raised an incredible £199.52!
Take a look at some of the pictures taken on the day.
Our physical education curriculum aims to inspire all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. We provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Children are given the opportunity to compete in sport and other activities. The aim is to build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
All of the key stage 2 children have the opportunity to be taught by qualified sports coaches who deliver a variety of team and individual sports including: tennis, basketball, cricket, rounders, athletics, handball and football.
The school also has a very successful football team that have participated in a number of community events where they have represented the school exceptionally.
During their time at the school, all children will also attend swimming lessons for a term.
