At Whiston Worrygoose, we recognise the fundamental role that regular physical activity plays in children’s lives. As part of our commitment to ensure that all children lead a healthy lifestyle, active learning is at the centre of our pedagogy. We believe every child should have the opportunity to take part in physical activity daily and become more physically confident and competent. We hope that, through all the sporting opportunities and physical activity we offer, the children will potentially develop a love and passion for sport and continue out of school and into their later lives.
At Whiston, we believe it is vital that every child's journey is a magical, exciting time which they cherish and remember. To support this notion, we invite in unique sporting specialists to deliver a one off session for all pupils across our school. Some of these exciting WOW days have included events such as: skateboarding, taekwondo, fencing and hula-hooping
It is of paramount importance that we help build sporting leaders at Whiston. We aim to offer a variety of children the opportunity to lead sporting activities, organise games and events and learn to lead by example. By empathising leadership, we aim for children to learn the importance of communication, collaboration, perseverance and a respect for rules.
Intra-School Tournaments - All KS1 and KS2 children will now take part in sport specific competitions that are in line with their PE lessons . Each year group will compete in their designated group at different times throughout the final week of the half term. Points will be added together from each year’s results and a trophy will then be awarded to the overall team with the most points.
Inter-School Tournaments - Each week at Whiston we take part in competing at various sporting events throughout the year which is organised by Live and Learn. Pupils are selected to represent our school based not only on merit, but on attitude and passion for the sport. At Whiston we are striving to be as competitive as possible when attending inter-school tournaments while still aiming to ensure that every pupil has the same opportunity to try out for the team.
