Sport at St. Helena's
Through the school year, children in school have been taking part in regular hockey, tag rugby, basketball and cricket sessions in PE. They have shown brilliant enthusiasm and learnt a great deal. As a result, all children have shown a fantastic amount of skill in these sports, including tactical game play within a team and great individual skills.
The current situation has made it incredibly difficult for children to meet the national guidelines for physical activity per day (60 minutes a day) so it is vital that we encourage children to take part in sport and physical activity outside of school to help them meet those guidelines, living a healthier lifestyle.
As lockdown restrictions continue to ease, it is the perfect time to consider encouraging children to take part in organised sport outside of school, so they can experience the huge benefits of doing so.
Some of these benefits include:
- Healthy lifestyle habits
- Motor skills development (improved co-ordination)
- Social skills development (learning to work as a team)
- Resilience (learning to cope with failure and how to bounce back)
- Fun and enjoyment
On this page are links to fantastic local clubs which have sports teams and training for this age group. It would be great to see if children would be interested in attending any sessions at the clubs to see if they enjoy these sports outside of school.
