Year 10 Sports Studies Outdoor Activities trip to Cornwall

On Friday 14th June the Year 10 vocational Sports Studies class set off for the annual Outdoor activities trip to Bude in Cornwall. The 4 day trip is part of the Developing Knowledge and Skills in Outdoor Activities unit delivered on the course.

This year the group has been researching the different types of outdoor activities and the benefits and skills that can be gained from participating in these types of sports. After day trips sailing and BMX/mountain biking the group went on their final assessment trip to Cornwall. After a 6 hour journey the group went straight into a kayaking session with all of the group showing very good paddling skills whilst also getting very wet. After a coastal walk on the first evening the group continued on Saturday with a kayaking assessment followed by an outdoor climbing experience with many conquering their fears to complete the challenging climbs.

Sunday saw a climbing assessment on an indoor wall followed by 2 surfing sessions to complete the trip before returning on Monday evening. The group were a credit to the school and can be really proud of the way they approached all the activities.

The group returned having all achieved some really good assessment marks but more importantly having developed some really positive life skills which they can take forward with them in the future. A massive thankyou to Miss Booth who gave up her weekend to support the students.

Year 10 Sports Leaders

Over the last week the new group of Year 10 Sports Leaders have been continuing their training with sessions on communication skills and planning and delivering an effective session. The group of 15 have shown great enthusiasm and a real flair for leadership. On Wednesday they delivered their first optional sport individual sessions and I was really impressed by the quality of leadership skills they displayed. They are all working towards the Level 1 Sports Leaders UK qualification and next week will see them not only helping to officiate the Hartsbourne Primary School Sports Day but also running and officiating the BSJT Tag Rugby and Quik Cricket festival for over 100 primary school students from our local academy schools. Reports on these events will appear in future newsletters.
