Year 6 Hockey
Year 6 visited South Axholome Academy in early September to participate in a Hockey afternoon. The children learnt a variety of skills necessary to play the game, including dribbling, striking and defence. Everyone had a go at small tournaments too. Lots of new and valuable skills were learnt, but more importantly, a lot of fun and enjoyment took place. The children loved the afternoon so much that we now hold a Hockey club on Tuesday evenings. Why not join in?
Practising dribbling techniques
Aiming and hopefully scoring.
On Thursday 3 May, some children from year 1-4 visited the English Institute of Sport.
They all had a fantastic day viewing where the athletes train, as well as having a go themselves on the indoor athletics track.They also had a go at long jump and javelin.
The institute is where Jessica Ennis- Hill and Anthony Joshua train. It was an amazing day that will keep their sporting passion and enthusiasm going for a long time!
Tour De Yorkshire 2018
Two KS2 children were lucky enough to represent Westwoodside Academy in the recent Tour De Yorkshire race that finished in Doncaster. They participated in a cycling race on the finishing straight in front of the crowds, waiting for the main race to finish. This was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for these children that they will never forget.
