Sports Update

Tri Golf

Last Tuesday (05 March) a group of pupils went to Isebrook school to compete in a Tri Golf Festival. There were lots of different stations set up and all children had the opportunity to practice their putting and chipping skills to then try and score as many points as possible.

There were 7 schools competing and Rowan Gate were the only primary school, all of the other participants were older… but despite that we came 3rd out of 7 schools which was fantastic!!

The children had lots of fun and were all amazing!! Well done!!!

Step into Sport Leaders Camp

On Wednesday (13 March) the Sports Crew went to Raunds Manor Sports College to take part in the Step into Sport Celebration Day.

The pupils who are part of the Rowan Gate Sports Crew help during lunchtime clubs and are able to  lead a small warm up! They are all fantastic role models in PE and are able to help during demonstrations, help other children to learn a new skills and are great sports leaders! They all have a pink leaders top so we know who they are!

At the Step into Sport Camp we met Jade Whindley who was a Tennis Player and was British Junior Number 1! She showed us lots of different games we could play.

Then the children made up our their own warm up game and showed it to the other schools… the children were so confident they even volunteered to go first!!! 

Rowan Gate was the only primary school at the camp but that really didn’t matter.  The children  put up their hands and answered lots of questions.  They were fantastic young leaders!

All of the children were amazing and received a certificate.  ‘Shinning Star Awards’ were also awarded to children who Jade thought were extra great leaders.

The children were fantastic, confident, knowledgeable and shared lots of their ideas with the other young leaders!

Well done, we are very proud of you.  Keep being great young leaders!!
