Hazel Leys on Target at COTSSP Arrows Archery Competition.

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 11:46

The Corby, Oundle and Thrapston School Sports Partnership hosted it's Year 4 & 5 Arrows Archery competition which saw over 60 children from 7 different Schools from across the partnership come to compete in the competition which took place at Lodge Park Academy.

The teams took turns to compete in four different skills stations where they would try and score points to be added to their schools total with the two teams with the highest overall score going on to represent the COTSSP in the county round.

Young leaders from Lodge Park Academy ran the event and were responsible for the four stations. They did a fantastic job of making sure that the children remained safe and ensured that all participants understood what they had to do at each station.

The young leaders were also given the task of observing the schools to see which team they felt deserved to take home the Schools Games Values Award for Teamwork. They decided that Cottingham C of E Primary deserved the award as they helped each other by encouraging their team mates as well as archers from other schools.

At the end of the competition it was Hazel Leys who emerged victorious narrowly beating Cottingham C of E primary who were 2nd just one point behind the winners.

Change4Life Celebration Festivals

Fri, 15 Apr 2016 10:26

This summer term our School Sports Partnerships will be hosting four Change4Life celebration festivals for schools in our county that host a Change4Life club.

Change4Life clubs are targeted at less active pupils in primary schools and aim to promote the benefits of an active, healthy lifestyle. A Change4Life club allows children to participate in fun activities that help to develop their confidence and fundamental skills that can support them to be more active and participate in PE, wider sports and activities. Clubs help to provide children a sense of belonging, promoting regular attendance in an exciting, inclusive environment that children might not have previously experienced or enjoyed.

The purpose of the festivals is to celebrate the children's achievements this school year and to showcase some of the opportunities local clubs and organisations can provide to inspire children to be more active in school and life.

We have secured the services of some of our local clubs in the county, from sports such as golf, boxing, tennis, karate and more, to provide children with the chance to have a go at sports that they may have never tried before. The events will not only focus on sporting activities, children will also have the chance to try healthy eating, gardening and fire service activities to help inspire them to lead a healthy active lifestyle.

When and where are these festivals?

Corby Oundle & Thrapston - 20/05/2016 - St. Patricks Primary School

Northampton - 27/05/2016 - Overstone scout camp site

South Northants & Daventry - 30/06/2016 - Towcestrians rugby club

Wellingborough & East Northants - 01/07/2016 - Wellingborough Old Grammarians Sports Field

If your school has a Change4Life club please look out for the invite from your school sports manager this term and book your place early!

We are always looking for support from local clubs and businesses. If you feel that you could support us at any of our Change4Life festivals please get in touch.
