At Worsthorne, Physical Education develops the children’s knowledge, skills and understanding, so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities. These include dance, games, gymnastics, swimming and water safety, athletics and outdoor adventure activities. Physical education promotes an understanding in children of their bodies in action. It involves thinking, selecting and applying skills and promotes positive attitudes towards a healthy lifestyle. Thus, we enable them to make informed choices about physical activity throughout their lives.
On Thursday 3d February, the football team went to the Leisure Box to play the final of Premier League Primary Stars. Theo, Josh, Luca, Bradley, Isaac, Max O, Max C and Ethan were all really excited knowing the winning team have the opportunity to go to Watford to represent Burnley.
The first game was against Riverside and it was a close game, we lost 1-0, but we climbed back up and in our next game we played Walsden and beat them 3-1. The last game was against Water and we won 1-0. Again, it was another difficult match.
We were winning on points but Riverside and Walsden still had one game to play and if Riverside won, they would take the title. It was a tense match to watch and we were counting down the minutes. When Walsden scored we cheered and hoped they would win but Riverside equalised so we all waited nervously hoping for a draw. When the final whistle blew we all cheered knowing we had won on goal difference. We couldn’t believe it because we thought Riverside were going to win. The other teams were presented with certificates and we were the last team to go up for our medals and t-shirts. We were so proud and happy because we are going to Watford!
Lower Key Stage Cross-country
On Tuesday, children from year 3 and 4 went Towneley to take part in the cross country race. There was over 100 children who took part from Burnley. They all gave 110% and were amazing. In the boy’s race, Benjamin came in first place, Blake in 3rd and Jasper in 4th. In the girl’s race, Lucia came 3rd. Well done to all of the children who took part.
key Stage 1 cricket
Year 1 and 2 had a great time last week at Burnley Cricket Club, learning lots of different multi skills and having fun doing so. All the children gave it their all and even had the opportunity to win a gift from the team. Who knows we might have the next Worsthorne’s own Jimmy Anderson!
Year 4 and 5 netball
On Tuesday, eight girls from Years 4 and 5 (Anna, Brooke, Daisy, Darcy, Eloise, Holly, Violet and Willow) went to the Bee Stinger Netball Qualifier tournament at Burnley Campus. They all showed amazing resilience and a great attitude towards competing in a sport they’ve only been playing together for five weeks! It was fantastic to see the girls encouraging each other, communicating, further developing their skills in both team work and netball and, most importantly, enjoying the experience. Well done girls, you did Worsthorne proud!
Thank you to Mrs Black for running our training sessions and taking the girls to their first netball competition.
