Unfortunately due to the national lockdown we are not able to run any after school clubs for the next few weeks. However PE lessons will continue as normal and we would like to encourage all students to continue to exercise outside during the lockdown period. Lots of the students have made a really positive start to the new academic year in very challenging circumstances and we have been really pleased with the attendance of many students at after school clubs.

It was great to see so many KS3 students actively involved in Inter House Cross-Country events before half term. There are many benefits both physically and mentally to be gained from taking part in competitive sport and the IH events offer the opportunity for large numbers of students to get involved. It was particularly pleasing to see the supportive nature of the students with some great evidence of team spirit amongst CDC groups. With inter school sport not possible we are looking to really build on the success of this event with lots more Inter House sports competitions in the months ahead.

KS3 INTER-HOUSE CROSS-COUNTRY

Well done ASH House – Champions !!

After the challenges of lockdown and the many months without structured physical education lessons this years Inter House cross-Country races were always going to be a challenge to many students’ fitness. However the effort levels in nearly all cases were really high with the students rewarded with some good weather for nearly all the races. After 6 races ASH House came out on top with a massive 1728 points closely followed OAK with 1715 points. For those who find the event difficult we continue to reinforce the healthy lifestyles message and remind students they should be 7 hours of physical activity a week to maintain a normal level of fitness. The top performers in each race are entered into the District Championships and we look forward to hearing how they got on next week.

The top 3 finishers in each race were as follows :
