Year 1 have been learning to use a hockey stick to dribble a ball effectively. They all demonstrated fantastic control and determination to keep the ball close to their stick whilst moving.
Girls from our school – one as young as Year 2 – were recently invited to participate in a Girls Football Camp organised by Birmingham City Ladies FC as part of our ‘Sister Club’ affiliation. The girls enthusiastically took part in a morning of football coaching activities then stayed to watch the Birmingham City Ladies v Liverpool Ladies FC match with their families.
Our partnership with Birmingham Moseley Rugby Club continues to flourish as tag rugby continues to be a popular lunch time and after school club activity for our children. Up to 50 Year 1-6 children access daily lunch time activities and 30 Year 3-6 children are signed up to the new after school club in the Summer Term.
The EYFS children used a long awaited visit to the MUGA (due to the recent weather!) to creatively explore using different equipment with control and coordination. The children practised a range of running, jumping, throwing and striking skills even adapting and creating new activities within their groups. Well done Reception children!
We recently hosted a Girls Football Festival in partnership with the University of Birmingham, providing opportunities for Year 3 and 4 girls to experience competition in fun and engaging environment. 40 girls representing 5 local schools attended in what was fantastic afternoon of football. Our school were also just pipped into the runners up position in the mini-tournament. Well done all!
We are thrilled, this year, to strengthen our sporting links with the University of Birmingham, providing new opportunities for our younger girls to play and enjoy football at school and on the University campus. The energetic weekly after school sessions are organised and led by players/coaches from the UOB Women’s football teams.
Members of our girls football team were recently invited to represent our school in a friendly match against Halas Hawks, a local girls football club, with the aim of strengthening links between our school and the club, and creating pathways for our to continue participation, enjoyment and development through football outside of school. The girls performed and represented our school fantastically! Well done everyone.
