After school clubs, pe and sports events
Inter Schools Competition
On the 20th March, Year 5 and 6 children from Valley Road and Highfield Academy took part in an inter school Key Steps gymnastics competition. Twelve children from each school were chosen, to display their fantastic gymnastics skills. They were required to learn a seven piece set routine and perform it in front of a gymnastics judge. They were all amazing but the overall winners were:
1st Neve Hayley and Kelsey Douthwaite
2nd Jodie Robins and Madeline de Cruz
3rd Savannah Duggan and Yasmine Diabate
Well done to everyone who took part. You were a credit to your school. We look forward to the Year Three and Four competition in the summer.
After School Clubs Spring 2019
After School Clubs
After school clubs are a great way for children to gain confidence, improve their skills and they are personalised to meet the needs of all ages and abilities. Children will be provided with the opportunity to experience new activities that they may not have previously had the opportunity to take part in.
At Valley Road we offer a wide variety of exciting and enjoyable after school clubs to children in key stage 1 and key stage 2. We have sports clubs such as dance, gymnastics and football which support children’s physical skills and we have curriculum clubs including STEM science, Art and Maths. When attending these clubs children have fantastic fun, make new friends with other children and they develop specific skills, interests and talents.
Our lunchtime coaches come into school twice a week to promote team games and turn taking, this has significantly increased participation of sport for all children within school. Throughout lunchtime there are a huge range of different sporting activities available to all of the children, allowing them to experience a variety of sport to support them in leading a healthy lifestyle.
We have a wide variety of After School Clubs. Please make sure you know what is happening and check out the
Friday Flyer for any new information
This week British Judo, the National Governing Body for Judo, have been in school. They delivered some taster sessions with us. It was great fun practising some moves and learning about how judo can keep us fit and healthy.
Year One Gymnastics
Year One have enjoyed taking part in a gymnastics festival, at Raich Carter. It was lots of fun trying new skills and meeting friends from other schools.
Rainbow room represented Valley Road at the Sportability Schools Games competition. We are waiting to hear whether any of our pupils made it to the Tyne and Wear Finals.
Well done to Year Five who took part in School Games Swimming Tournament, at The Aquatic Centre. They enjoyed it so much, we are looking forward to starting a swimming club in the summer.
Lunch Time Clubs
We have sports coaching coming into school on a lunchtime. We play lots of different games, including dodgeball. You can see some of us in action below.
During lunchtime we do yoga. It is very relaxing and it helps us get ready for learning after lunch.
