P.E. & School Sport

  

Our P.E. and Sport Vision

At Watton School we place a high value on PE and sport to help our pupils achieve their full potential, from inspiring the more tentative to actively participate in PE and clubs, to encouraging competitive sports for the more able.

We promote a long term healthy lifestyle through a broad and balanced curriculum with an aim to raise enjoyment, attainment and make physical activity a staple part of the pupils daily routine.

Our PE and sport aspires to build self esteem, teamwork, leadership skills and a desire to be the best that they can be.

Young Ambassadors & Sports Crew

We have two Young Sports Ambassadors and one Health Champion at the school. These children attend training sessions once a term. Their jobs are to help the PE Coordinators run clubs & school competitions, and to act as sports reporters for competitions & festivals that we attend. They also help the PE Coordinators to promote a healthy lifestyle to the school.

Our Ambassadors are Tom Rutter (year 6), Lily Norman (year 5), and our Health Champion is Ross Green (year 6).

Some children from years 5 and 6 have been selected to be our Sports Crew. They help the Ambassadors and PE Coordinators to run clubs, and help the MSAs & play-leaders outside at lunchtimes. These children have received extensive training in leadership and peer mediation from the local School Sports Partnership.

We have also started to allow KS2 children to organise, plan and run their own lunchtime clubs for the younger children in the school to take part in.

Football – Watton Vs St Josephs (Away) – Thursday 2nd November 2017

At St Josephs, Watton arrived in high spirits. Kick off. Watton started passing the ball around the middle of the pitch until St Josephs won the ball and went on the attack. They got the ball to the right wing and crossed it into the box. Then Jacob unfortunately kicked the ball into his own net, 1-0 St Josephs. Watton then tried to attack until our shot was blocked and they countered and scores. 2-0 St Josephs. Then our attacks were getting better with George getting a great shot which St Joseph’s keeper made a great save. They came charging at us and then George G tried to clear the ball which rolled over his foot and bobbled in past Seth who tried his best to save it. 2-0 St Josephs.

Our passing started to get really great, with us doing little one-twos, getting past their midfield. They got a free kick which they took early forcing Seth into an amazing save. St Josephs then outnumbered our defence which ended up in a goal. 4-0 St Josephs. Half time.

Watton then came out with focus on scoring and getting any result.  But, they then worked their way round us and a goal, Seth half got to the ball. 5-0 St Josephs. They then scored 5 more goals afterward. Man of the match went to Seth for making some great saves and keeping us in it for most of the match. Final score: 10-0 St Josephs.
