KS2 Spring House Matches 2024

While the weather was against us again, we managed to go ahead with the KS2 Spring House Matches. The children ploughed on through the rain to ensure they didn’t miss out, demonstrating fantastic collaboration and resilience.  All children represented their house in either Tag-Rugby or Netball and were able to demonstrate some of the skills they have learnt during their PE lessons with Mr Green in the Spring Term.

As this was their second event of the year, the House Captains and Sports Leaders were able to work independently, fully completing their roles without support from adults. We were so impressed to see them all scoring, refereeing, time-keeping, coaching and managing their teams.  Not only were they supportive but they demonstrated kindness and empathy towards the younger children too which created a wonderful atmosphere.

UKS2 Horsham District Inclusive Racquet Sports Event
On Wednesday, some of our Year 5 and 6 children took part in a Horsham District Inclusive Racquets Sports event at The Bridge. They had a fantastic morning, where they played: tennis, badminton, squash, and table tennis against three other local schools. This was a wonderful opportunity for some of our less competitive children to try new sports and get active.
UKS2 Stinger Netball
On Wednesday, we took a mixed team of Year 5 and 6 children to a Stinger Netball tournament at The Weald. This was an inclusive event giving some of our children their first match playing opportunity, whereby they competed against 8 other schools from our locality. Throughout the afternoon, they demonstrated great collaboration skills and resilience. We are so proud of them.

KS1 Multi Skills at The Weald
On Wednesday 22nd November, Willow Class had a fabulous time this afternoon representing the school at a KS1 Multi-skills Festival at The Weald School. We were very well behaved and everyone joined in and tried their best, even if some of us were feeling a little bit nervous at first. Zog (the resilient dragon) came along with us from our classroom and saw lots of children trying their hardest and not giving up! Well done Willow Class. We are very proud of our sporting superstars!

KS2 Autumn House Matches 2023

Thankfully the weather was on our side and we were able to run the Autumn House Matches as planned. What a fabulous turn out from the parents. I was wonderful to see so many of you supporting the children. All KS2 children represented their house in either Hockey to Football and were able to demonstrate some of the skills they have learnt during their PE lessons with Mr Green in the Autumn Term. Well done to the Year 3s as this was their first round of House Matches and can be slightly intimidating but they all participated and got stuck in.

This was also the first opportunity of the year to fully utilise our new House Captains and Sports Leaders. The House Captains managed their teams and tried to keep them as even as possible. The Sports Leaders worked really hard, taking on many roles including: time keeping, scoring and referring the games. This really improved as the games went on.

On Thursday 9th November, some of our junior children had a fantastic afternoon at The Weald Locality Cross Country Festival. All the children were fantastically well-behaved and put in a huge amount of effort to represent the school in a lot of mud! However, we would like to make special mentions to: Abigail, Amelia, James, Harley and Cameron who either came 1st or 2nd in their races. It was wonderful to see so many medals for Loxwood; we are so proud of you! A huge thank you for all the parents for the transport, support and encouragement.
