Physical Education offers the children so many varied opportunities. At Brabyns we are proud to provide specialist teachers in Tennis, Gymnastics, Dance as well as in Games so that the children can benefit from coaching in a wide range of skill sets.
Curriculum lessons are always a hive of activity with the children being supported and stretched with the aim to achieve as much as possible and make progress with their individual skills.
Our Sports Clubs are as popular as ever. Current clubs on offer include Boxercise, Dance (Modern, Tap, ballet, Cheerleading), Football (for girls and boys of all ages), Tennis, (for Reception and Infants along with Juniors), Dodgeball, Gymnastics, High-5, Rugby and Basketball.
Fixture wise, we have already competed in football, high-5, cross-country and water polo, with our contact rugby tournament postponed due to the rain. In the cross-country it has been a delight to welcome new children to the team and to see the camaraderie amongst the team. We also had a Year 6 girl finish in the top ten in the U12 race; a great achievement!
In the water polo we took 2 teams and both finished 3rd in their groups, narrowly missing out on qualifying for the semi-finals.
The high-5 tournament saw us finish runners-up out of 6 local schools, with the team making good progress during the tournament and the one game they lost they had 22 shots but just couldn't score! A great achievement with most of the team only having played a handful of competitive games before between them.
The latest football tournament was a wonderful afternoon, with 16 teams playing in groups. Our ‘Blue team’ got through to the ‘Europa Cup Final’ losing a close game 1-0, to finish as runners-up. Our ‘white team’ missed out on the semi-finals on goal difference, but had the highlight of the day when they beat our own ‘blue team’ with the last kick of the match!
As always, as a School we enjoy notable achievements across a range of sports. This was marked with us receiving two whole school awards for 2018-2019 from Stockport Sports recognising the varied sports we offer as a School, as well as our participation and performance in events last year. Well done everyone!
