The 18th-23rd of June celebrated National School Sports Week. National School Sports Week is an event that sees children from across the school come together to embrace the spirit of athleticism and camaraderie. To celebrate this, Miss Brennan organised some incredible activities for children across the school to participate in. 

The week started off with a game of Nerf Wars! The children demonstrated amazing teamwork as well as their gross motor and spatial awareness skills. The teachers did fairly well too... and the children enjoyed aiming for them! 

We also had a visit from Jonny Urszuly who you may have seen on Ninja Warrior UK! Jonny's journey on Ninja Warrior not only captivated the children but has also served as an incredible source of inspiration. As a contestant on the show, Jonny faced numerous challenges and obstacles, often pushing his physical and mental limits to the edge. Despite setbacks and moments of doubt, he never gave up. Jonny's determination, perseverance, and unwavering belief in himself showed the children the invaluable lesson that failure is not the end but an opportunity for growth. They had the opportunity to participate within a Ninja Warrior inspired course to demonstrate their strength and agility.

Our KS2 children adored learning how to play Kin-Ball! The objective of the game is for teams to catch the ball with any part of their bodies before the ball touches the ground and then hit it back to another team. They had a great time and enjoyed learning about a new sport.

Friday allowed the children to put on coloured bibs and get stuck into a game of freedom football. The children played in teams of three and tried to score as many goals as possible! Teachers commented on how wonderful it was to hear the children cheering for each other and celebrating when a classmate scored a goal, showing what a great attitude and sportsmanship children at Chapelford Village Primary School demonstrate.  

National School Sports Week serves as a testament to the power of sports in shaping confident, resilient, and well-rounded individuals.

A massive thank you to Miss Brennan for organising these activities.
