Key Stage 1 Agility
Children from Year 1 and Year 2 took part in the Key Stage 1 Agility School Games. They took part in a range of different activities (see activity list below) and had a wonderful time competing together. Altogether, over 1000 children took part in the event throughout the day and Anmol and Poppy, our wonderful Sports Ambassadors, were involved in running the events for the Key Stage 1 children.
Ali Knight, the School Games Organiser, sent the following message: “Well done to all the Sports Ambassadors involved in today’s Infant Agility Competition. A team of 65 Sports Ambassadors led a great day of competition. Throughout the day just over 1000 year 1 and 2 students got to experience competition in a really fun and relaxed environment. Feedback from schools on the leaders was really good and all of the Sports Ambassadors did a really great job. Please pass on my congratulations”.
Well done to all of the Westgate children involved and a thank you to the Key Stage 1 staff for taking the children along to such an exciting event.
The Year 6 Rowing Competition
The boys scored 1853 points, with the winning team having 2056 points and the team in last place 1685 points.
The girls scored 1793 points, with the winning team having 2060 points and the team in last place scoring 1706.
The first three comments from the Year 6 out of the cars were: “That was amazing”, “I won!” and “can we do that again?”
Area Athletics Champion
Poppy represented the Warwick team at the Edmonscote area athletics. In a stunning afternoon of javelin throwing, Poppy triumphed and was awarded first place! This means that out of all of the girls in her year group in Warwick, Leamington and Southam, Poppy was the champion. Everyone at Westgate is incredibly proud of Poppy! Well done Poppy!
Freya’s Amazing Edgbaston Experience
Freya had a fantastic day at Edgbaston and came second overall in the competition with her teammates. We are all extremely proud of Freya, as only children from the top eight Warwickshire clubs were invited to compete. She met some of her favourite players, including Johanna Konta and Heather Watson. We don't think that it will be long before Freya is standing for photographs like Johanna and Heather! Well done Freya!
Richard from Central Ajax came to work with the girls in years 3 and 4 on their football skills.There are a number of girls who already play football outside of school and would be happy to speak to anyone interested about the enjoyment that they get from playing as part of a team.
Year 5 and 6 Cricket Experience
Recently, we were joined by Josh from Warwickshire Cricket Club. The children had a wonderful afternoon developing their skills of bowling, catching, fielding and batting. Please see the advert for opportunities to join a local club or speak to Mr. Watson if you would like any further information.
