Year 7 Olympic Legacy Day

On Thursday the 27th June the whole of Year 7 took part in a range of sporting activities leading off from the London Olympics and carrying on that legacy.
 
Organised by Mr Cotton, he had invited loads of different clubs to come in and showcase what sports were available to us. We had 25 minutes on each one and the volunteers from their clubs showed us how fun each sport can be. There was a range of activities there, such as, Judo, Tennis, Gymnastics, Karate, Hockey, Basketball, Badminton, Rowing and many more.
At 10:50am we all converged to the sports hall and we were then told which six of the many sports we were doing in our form groups. I’m sure everyone enjoyed each activity and what they did in it, to show them actually what is out there open to them. The sports had well set out plans and each one took our interest and made them fun. For instance, in Judo we got to kick each other with pads on, (which obviously appealed to the boys a lot), and in Tennis we got to play matches and had coaching at the same time, so we weren’t bored and sitting around.
After two activities we went to have lunch and then were straight back to our last four sports. The day was very good and very fun, (especially as we got to miss three lessons), but we enjoyed playing the variety of sports. At the end we congratulated the volunteers on giving us very good and exciting lessons and took information off the clubs we were most interested in. In my opinion I preferred the tumble mat, because it was different and very fun.
A big thank you to the volunteers who gave up their time to show us what was on offer, and also to Mr Cotton for setting this very fun and knowledgeable day up for us.

Last Thursday (27th June) all of Year 7 took part in an Association Day to promote sports clubs in the area. These clubs had volunteers who came in to teach us how to do things like Karate, Tumbling, Judo, Rowing and many more. In tumbling we learnt how to do a flick. It was great fun, we also learnt badminton, tennis, taekwnondo and parkor. We all went round in our form groups doing these different sports.
We would like to say a massive thank you to the clubs and coaches who came in to teach us these sports and we hope they had as nicer day as we all did.
