Kingsthorpe College Cluster - Term 2 Update
Posted: Fri, 16 Dec 2016 08:33
This term kicked off with a New Age Kurling session! Schools from across the cluster went along to Bridgewater Primary and took part in a coaching session followed by a mini competition. For many of the pupils it was their first experience of the sport and they all loved it! All Saints Primary ordered themselves a New Age Kurling set for school they enjoyed it so much! Most of the teams went on to compete in the Level 2 competition and I am delighted to announce that Parklands Primary did brilliantly and are now progressing to the Level 3 Winter School Games!
Our Cluster have been working hard on their Gymnastics this term preparing for the Year 5/6 and the Y3/4 Level 2 Gymnastics competitions. All the schools that competed in the Y5/6 competition on 9th November did really well. Bridgewater came 4th, only just missing out on qualifying for the Level 3 School Games. Well done to all the gymnasts involved, and good luck to the Y3/4 gymnasts competing in January!
Kingsthorpe College run Multisport Festivals every term for the cluster primary schools. The Multisport Festivals are run by Young Leaders from Kingsthorpe College and they provide a fun and informal setting for children to take part in a variety of sports. A new group of 20 Year 7/8 students were trained up as Young Leaders in November and they worked hard to plan their first event which was a Year 5 Multisport Festival. They were absolutely fantastic and we were really impressed at their confidence and organisational skills! The 75 Year 5 children that attended the event had a brilliant time!
