Extra Curricular in PE
The PE Department are delighted to restart our Extra-Curricular activities that we offer after school on each day. Due to year group bubbles, we have decided to keep the format that we have already used this year.
The format is;
Monday – Year 7
Tuesday – Year 8
Wednesday – Year 9
Thursday – Year 10
Friday – Year 7
At the moment, we are offering both Football and Netball practice on these days for each year group. The clubs will start at approximately 3:15pm & will finish between 4pm & 4:15pm. If there are ever any changes to this, we will let students know with as much notice as possible, although we are sure you will appreciate this isn’t always the case. Clubs will be reviewed during half term and we aim to offer different activities wherever possible, this includes reintroducing the Sharples Running Club.
Unfortunately, as things stand, there will be NO FIXTURES against other schools.
There have been posters which show the clubs we offer placed around school, including in each year group’s zone. These posters can also be seen in this newsletter.
If any students or parents have any questions regarding PE’s Extra-Curricular activities then please let us know.
Classroom to 5K
From Monday 22nd March, all year groups will be taking part in the Classroom to 5K activities that have been planned. These activities have the intention of getting everyone active through mass participation for all. The first challenge will consist of an activity similar to orienteering around the school grounds with checkpoints placed in various locations which students have to mark off their checklist that will be given to them at the start of the lesson. Another key aim of the activities is to improve students’ social skills that may have been reduced during Distance Learning.
As mentioned above, the activities take place around school and therefore different surfaces. We believe that it will be a good idea to bring some older trainers as these may get muddy in lessons. If this is the case, we would also suggest bringing a spare carrier bag.
Again, the activities that are offered to students in their Core PE lessons will be reviewed and as always, this will be communicated with students at the earliest opportunity.
As students have made their return to school, we have decided that it will be a good idea to resume our focus on the Sharples Fantasy Football League. As things stand, the table is very close with only 56 points separating 1st and 4th place. The highest scorer of the most recent gameweek was Mr Charlton who scored 68 points, which takes him up to 4th place. In the upcoming round of fixtures, there are only 4 games in total this weekend with only 8 teams in action. This may cause a real headache for some managers as the majority of some teams will unfortunately not be playing. The Wildcard chip may be a good solution as it will temporarily allow you to make unlimited transfers for one gameweek, then revert your teams to its original before these transfers were made. As always, good luck and keep your eyes peeled on our display board down in PE which will be updated next week.
