Sporting Events and Competitions

#Letgirlsplay

At PCJS we keen to ensure that all sporting activities are accessible for everyone. Therefore, we signed up to the national campaign #Letgirlsplay. On Thursday 7th March,35 girls across all year groups took part in a local activity run by our SGO at Lady Lumley's School. The girls took part in range of skill based activities before playing competitively against each other and other schools. The growth in confidence from beginning to end was immeasurable and something we hope to continue to foster and develop. 

 

"I can't wait to go back to school and join in with football at breaktime" - Year 3

"Are there any girls teams I can join?" - Year 5

"I don't feel as scared or worried to play now. I'm looking forward to tomorrow' - Year 4  

 

On Friday 8th March, we ran our very own girls football event. We are pleased to say that every girl across the school was involved in a friendly house competition. It was a positive, motivational event where children worked collaboratively, supported and encouraged one another where they all felt confident and part of a team. There was a real buzz about football in school. 

 

Congratulation to the winning houses:

Year 3/4 - Gresley

Year 5 - Keepers

Year 6 - Gresley 

Reindeer Dash 

This week the children got into the Christmas spirit and joined forces with York Mix radio to complete a Reindeer Dash in order to raise money for St Leonards' Hospice. The children recorded their version of '.... sleeps till Christmas' before completing 5 laps of the playground, wearing their Reindeer antlers chasing an extra special guest....SANTA!! It was wonderful to see the whole school working together towards a shared goal. 

 

We are pleased to share that we raised £252.00 in total!

Multi-Sports Event at Lady Lumley's School

On Thursday 9th November, a group of children attended a Multi-Sports Hall event at Lady Lumley's School. They took part in a ‘round robin’ of activities and got the opportunity to try different sports such as curling, golf and archery. They completed every activity with huge smiles on their faces and really challenged themselves in each event. We look forward to working closer with Mrs Twamley at Lady Lumley's so we can share these activities with more pupils. 

 

Year 5 and 6 Rugby Festival 

On Wednesday 18th October, ten of our pupils attended the Rugby Festival at Malton and Norton Rugby Club. They were put through their paces with a range of physical challenges including throwing, catching, tackling and scoring tries. They completed everything with huge smiles on their faces and we look forward to sharing some of the activities back in school.
