Level 1 School Games Competitions
Celebrating Achievements at Otterburn Primary
We are in the process of introducing an intra-house competition (level 1) at the end of every unit of work in PE this year, particularly focussed on KS2.
We are celebrating this in assembly with certificates for participation, performance and most importantly to us, a spirit of the games award. This award goes to a pupil who shows the School Games Values within the school competition.
Virtual Multi-Skills Competition (Level 1 and 2)
We took part in the School Games Virtual Multi-Skills Festival for LKS2 and UKS2. The event was ran as a house competition in school (level 1) as well as sending off our results to compete against other Tynedale and Northumberland Schools (level 2).
This event had lots of cross curricular links for us, as we combined this with our Computing unit of work on 'data handling.'
For the LKS2 competition, we had UKS2 sports leaders running the Y4 events and recording the data ready for our computing lesson about data handling and using formulas. We then swapped so the UKS2 pupils could compete in the Y6 events and LKS2 could record their data. This was an event that our School Games Organiser was very impressed with!
Run 4 Fun Competition (Level 1)
KS2 pupils loved taking part in this years 'Run 4 Fun' Competition which we ran as a House Competition as well as certificates for first, second and third in each year for each gender. All pupils received an award for participation and two pupils received the spirit of the games award for excellent determination and self-belief.
All pupils at Otterburn Primary took part in the Santa Dash on a cold and beautiful December morning. The children enjoyed dashing through the fluffy snow whilst listening to their favourite Christmas songs!
Tag-Rugby House Competition (Level 1)
All pupils in KS2 took part in a tag-rugby competition once we reached the end of our invasion games unit of work in PE. The winning house was the squirrels! Pupils were awarded certificates for participation, performance and spirit of the games.
