Waterton Trust Year 3&4 Korfball @ Cherry Tree Lane

Yet again teams from South Kirby, Normanton Juniors, Walton, Cherry Tree Lane, Mill Dam and Sharlston rose to the challenge of this fantastic game. Players have to pass their way out for the defensive half and hand the ball over to the other half of their team to throw, catch and shot into a netball style goal. On show was some outstanding understanding of 'give and go' (passing and moving) with teams quickly moving the ball up the court to have an attempt at goal. The competition was close with all teams taking wins but it was South Kirby, returning champions, who claimed the title with a 0-0 draw in the final game against Walton.

Year 5&6 Football @ Crofton Academy

West Yorkshire Game Cross Country Championships @ Temple Newsam

With temperatures nearly at freezing teams from Crofton Juniors, Walton and Shay Lane set about their annual football competition for a qualifying place in this year's district final. With some great passing, dribbling, movement off the ball and shooting all three of our teams were going for it. In the end it was Crofton Juniors who claimed the victory and the trophy.

With what seemed little 300 children for each race schools from Wakefield, Bradford, Leeds and Kirklees took part in this year's Cross Country Championships with the top teams going on to represent West Yorkshire at the National Final in Leicester. The races were split into year groups and gender with Year 4 Girls racing first and Year 6 Boys racing last. Wakefield put in a great performance with runners from Southdale, Walton Lofthouse Gate, Horbury, Altofts, Ash Grove, St.Michaels and Grove Lea schools representing the area. Sorry but I only managed to shoot the Year 6 Girls and Boys races photos available at WY Cross Country

Schemes of Work

Schemes of Work
All our schemes of work are full tested through delivery and are constantly under development, adding and refining elements to make the best experience and opportunities fun and simple to teach. Have a look at some of the schemes below plus loads more lesson plans that are available by clicking on the link above.

Curriculum Activities

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.

After-School Clubs

Wakefield School Sports Network offers a range of after-school clubs to suit the whole of the primary and secondary age ranges from traditional sports like football, netball and rounders to alternative sports like Key Stage 1 multi-skills and striking and fielding, Key Stage 2 rock-it-ball and handball, Key Stage 3 basketball and much more...

All clubs are fully planned and delivered by qualified teachers or coaches with any specialist equipment and resources provided by Wakefield School Sports Network.

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.
