Sport at Ashford Hill Welcome to our sports page…
We are proud of our children’s sporting achievements – our ethos is to be the best that we can be so we challenge the children to improve in everything they do, show good sportsmanship and play fairly.
Zara and Nicole challenged themselves to 'double skip'. Now the playground is full of children attempting the double, treble and even quadruple skips!!
Currently we aim for 2 hours of PE every week – this is a REAL PE session plus a more sport focus session with Mason, our sports coach.
REAL PE is based around agility, balance and coordination and is the foundation for all competitive sport. This weekly session is taught by class teachers.
Mason is our sports coach who works with most of the classes each week to offer sports specific skills.
This term Hornbeam Class are having swimming lessons at Tadley Swimming Pool culminating in a Gala on Thursday 8th February.
After school clubs:
We offer rugby, netball, fun fitness, football (through an outside agency called GOL) and Dancephaze sessions.
Last year we took part in a wide range of activities outside school:
We aim to enter the same range this year.
This year Harry and Holly are our ambassadors this year. Both have taken the role very seriously - they are ensuring teams are organised for the various competitions we are entering, have ordered new equipment to give the children more options for playtime and have instigated a 'Sports Class' of the week. This is chosen by Mason and has a focus on the children being the best they can be, being respectful and supporting each other. The receiving class is provided with a sports focus at privilege playtime organised by Harry and Holly - a great idea which is working well.
