This 2016/17 year has seen Unsworth competing in a plethora of sports against other schools. The children are developing their knowledge in teamwork, rules, skills and always represent the school well, showing respect to fellow competitors and officials.
This year the school has already competed in a variety of sports including:
- Boys Football, Girls Football and Tag Rugby
and have these competitions to look forward to:
- Cross Country ( boys and girls teams) – BJSSA Cross Country events scheduled at (Tues 28th Feb) Broadoak High School, (Tues 8th March) St Gabriel’s RC High School, (Tues 14th March) Derby High School and (Wed 29th March) Bury Athletics track – Feb-March
- Netball competition – fixtures arranged Feb-April
- Athletics – summer
- Cricket – summer
- Rounders – summer
- Y5 5-a-side football -summer
as well as continued football and tag rugby events.
We are passionate at Unsworth to offer children these competitive sporting opportunities. We want every child to enjoy sport, strive to achieve their personal best and work hard as a team. The experiences gained of success, challenge and risk-taking from sports, and how the children respond to these, can only help in all aspects of life.
At Unsworth, we value the thoughts of the children, ask the children which sports they like to participate in and which clubs they would like. A survey is going to be generated by Mr Garside to ask the children which is their favourite current club and what other clubs they would like to do, which are not currently on offer.
Many thanks must go to QFirst for all their lunchtime and after school clubs delivered this year, including: cheerleading, dance, tennis, basketball and multi sports.
Additionally, Unsworth have a dedicated staff, who are working as a team, to provide lunch time and after school clubs in: table tennis, tag rugby, football, netball, dance and cross country. As well as this, there will be a further variety of sports in the summer including: judo, cricket, rounders and athletics.
Not only this, Y6 children ‘Sports Crew’ have delivered sessions to Y2 and are moving on to Y1 next. They are learning every session, making improvements to their organisation and are getting better every week. The Y2 children really seemed to enjoy the sessions designed by the Sports Crew, especially the kick ball game.
