Another great week for sport

We have had another great week for sport an Unsworth. Both netball and football sessions after school have started this week for our Y5 and Y6 children. The netball team started the term with enthusiasm and energy! They were also particularly excited to wear our brand new Unsworth netball kits for upcoming matches, complete with the Unsworth logo and school motto!

Mr Evans was also pleased with the boys in football training on Friday after school. Football sessions have now moved to a Friday after school, so if you are interested in joining the team, speak to Mr Evans to find out more!

We have also had a great week with Ryan from QFirst sports. He has been working with Y1 and Y6 in PE, teaching basketball on a Monday night for the Y4 and Y5 children and has spent time with the after school club children teaching multi-sports!

After speaking to some of the children this week, they have really enjoyed working with Ryan and have enjoyed working as a team with children of different ages in after school club.

Ryan also told me how impressed he has been with the Y5 and Y6 children at lunch times. The children have been working with Ryan a few times a week at lunchtime to learn the role of a ‘lunchtime leader’ Lunchtime leaders are a responsible job for our upper juniors. They are required to work alongside the younger children at our school to support them with team games and activities.

Tonight our netball team played a match against Mersey Drive Primary. Both teams gave 100% effort and enthusiasm and both worked extremely well as a team by communicating with one another throughout the game.

The match started off neck and neck leaving the score at 3-3 until the second half when Unsworth scored an amazing 3 goals taking the final score to 6-3! Go Unsworth!

Thank you to all parents who came to show their support tonight too, we had a great time!
