Year 4, 5 & 6 Cross Country Championships @ Outwood Grange

With the snow falling over 300 excited runner met on a muddy field at the back of Outwood Grange Academy. Each of the teams entered had won their cluster event and were keen to progress to the next round at Temple Newsome but first there was the partnership championships to overcome and in these conditions it was anybody's game. Year 4 Girls were first out of the blocks followed by the Year 4 Boys competing over a distance of 800m. Next follow the Year 5 Girls, Year 5 boys, Year 6 Girls and final Year 6 Boys each covering a distance of 1500m. The event was brilliantly organised by Angela Daniel, Competition Manager and her team of sports leaders.

Year 5&6 Hockey @ Crofton Academy

Year 5&6 Sports Hall Athletics @ Thomas a Beckets

A chilly but amazing evening of hockey with teams from Sharlston, Walton, Crofton Junior and Shay Lane primary schools. With the action coming thick and fast each team battled their way through four games of hockey. There were loads of great skills on show, super passing, brilliant dribbling and fantastic goals. Everybody played well but it was Sharlston who were overall winners with Walton and Crofton Juniors coming second and third. Check out the photo by clicking on the link Hockey @ Crofton Academy.

A fantastic event of athletics with cluster competition winning teams from Crofton Juniors, Alverthorpe St.Pauls, Horbury, Lofthouse Gate, Sandal Castle and Flanshaw. The event was complete over two stages with girls track and boys field events first then boys track and girls field. The competition was tight with some great running, throwing and jumping.

Wakefield School Sports Network continues to provide a full range of curriculum PE sessions from early years to key stage 4 including invasion games from football to rock-it-ball, striking and fielding activities from kwik cricket to softball, athletics skills coaching from sprinting to javelin, gymnastics techniques from curling to flight, multi-skills foundations from balance to catching and much more... All schemes of work have detailed lesson plans linked to National Curriculum POS's and delivered by qualified teachers and coaches.

Activity Days
At Wakefield School Sports Network we pride ourselves on delivering something different be it a traditional whole school sports day, a nursery fun theme activity afternoon, building bridges inclusion day or a intra-key stage squareball competition we have the experience and resources to provide it.
Tournaments and Competitions
Competition is always at the forefront for what we do at Wakefield School Sports Network. If it is an end of session game, a final lesson in a scheme of work, an intra-school house competition or a inter-school football match we feel that providing the right atmosphere for competition is important. There is always a place for playing your best players but equally sport must be for all and mixed and fun tournaments play an active part in our competition framework.
