Sport, games and PE are beneficial to children’s physical wellbeing, and also their emotional well-being too. Being involved in sport, playing and learning new skills and games, builds children’s confidence, and develops their fitness and skills levels. Sport and exercise also teaches us;
● How to be part of a team
● How to encourage team mates
● Determination and dedication
● Application of skill
● Tactical awareness
● Social interaction
● Benefit of exercise on overall physical and emotional well-being.
● The enjoyment of winning and how to cope if you don’t!
At Scotts, these are behaviours and attributes we endeavour to promote throughout the whole curriculum.
At Scott's we follow the PE scheme IPEP. This allows for children to gain the relevant skills needed to participate in a range of Sports. Here is our PE plan for the year:
This weeks activities:
As many children will be working at home, we have been given access once again to the Virtual competition website: TopYa. Children will be able to participate in competitions and enter their own videos of them completing the challenge. They will then earn points for our School. Let's try and get the most points in Havering and have some sporting fun.
To register and find out more information about this competition please read the document below.
London Youth Games: To encourage children to continue to engage in sport throughout these difficult times London Youth Games are setting personal challenges each week. You can enter your child for these competitions on the London Youth Games Website: https://www.londonyouthgames.org/
Havering Sports Collective have launched the challenge of walking the Earth's circumference in miles. They are asking for every child to participate in recording the distance they have walked in miles. They will then work out the total amount of miles we have walked as a Borough. To complete the circumference we need to walk 24,901 miles. Every little walk helps us to become closer to our goal.
We are very proud of the children's sporting achievements.
During this difficult time Havering Sports Collective have arranged for many of their usual competitions to take place in school following the Social Distancing guidelines. This has allowed more children to join in with many different sporting events; that previously they may not have participated in.
Cricket: On Friday 20th November Kelly Castle, Essex Cricket Captain, joined us for an Assembly. All of the children had some fantastic questions to ask her about her sporting career. It was a very inspiring assembly and encouraged many aspiring athletes to work hard and try their best.
Cross Country: Year 1-6 joined the rest of the Havering Schools in participating in a Cross Country Event. Every child ran a mile, this meant as a School we ran 297.65miles. What an amazing achievement! It was a pleasure to see so many of the children enjoying running together.
Sports Hall Athletics: Years 1-6 participated in a Sports Hall Athletics Competition (outside). We are so proud of every single child who participated. I have been amazed at the fantastic results that I have received, all of which have been sent to Havering to enter us into the competition. The children took part in 5 different events including; long jump, speed bounce, chest push, shuttle run and a vertical jump.
Sports Relief Mile: A massive thank you to all of the parents who donated and a big well done to all of the children who participated. On Friday 13th March, as a school we celebrated Sports Relief by all completing a mile. It was fantastic to see all the children encouraging each other to complete the mile by running, jogging or walking. Thank you for all the donations we received for this worthy cause.
Tag Rugby: Children from Year 5 & 6 represented Scotts at this year’s Tag Rugby event held at May & Baker. There were a large number of primary schools within Havering that attended and the competition was very competitive. We competed extremely well as a team demonstrating a great togetherness and resilience throughout the day- they were nice and muddy by the end of the day!
Boy's football cup: We travelled to Engayne to play our cup match and what a game it was! After an end to end encounter, the score line at full time was 1-1 with Findlay scoring for Scotts. The match progressed to a penalty shootout and after each player taking at least one penalty, Scotts managed to win the tie- well done to all the boys who held their nerve in the shootout! In the quarter final, we played Squirrels Heath Primary but unfortunately we lost 2-1. The boys again displayed great teamwork and dedication- well done!
Hockey: On Wednesday 12th February five year five children participated in a hockey competition at Coopers School. All of the children tried their best and were a credit to our school. Throughout the day they demonstrated our core value of Respect and as a result were rewarded with the respect award. Well done to those children.
Boccia: A group of children between years 2-5 represented the school at the Havering Boccia competition. The children demonstrated excellent teamwork skills and played the game brilliantly.
Havering Indoor Athletics: Children from year’s 3-6 took part in this years Havering Indoor Athletics Competition held at Hornchurch Sports Centre. The children all took part in two field and two track events each. They were able to build and apply previously taught skills and training and apply this into a competitive setting. All children enjoyed the lively and competitive spirit of the event and represented the school really well- thank you and well done!
Football League: Well done to both teams who played some fantastic football and displayed fantastic sportsmanship towards the other teams they competed against. Both teams were defensively solid throughout and played some scintillating football at times throughout the afternoon. The girl’s played four matches and ended up with eight points which has taken them through to the quarter finals of the league cup- well done girls. The boys played four matches and ended up with four points- well done to all the children who participated in the round of league games.
Cross Country: A selection of children from year 3-6 attended the Havering Cross Country event held at Stubbers. The children all paced themselves very well throughout their run and displayed great determination and commitment throughout the race. A special mention to Summer and Findlay who both had an amazing day and came first overall for the year 4 and 6 event respectively. Well done to all the children involved.
Year 6 Orienteering: Congratulations to all the year 6 children who participated in the Orienteering competition. Yet again, you all represented Scotts with great pride and demonstrated great behaviour and attitudes towards this event. Could I also give a special mention to Albie and Tobi for being selected to be part of the Havering Orienteering Team which was held at Langdon Hills.
