Welcome back to another year, as always the weather improves in time for school to start, which is ideal for our sports department.
I would like to start by introducing two new members of the sports department.
Ed Hopkins who joins us as a permanent full time member of the sports deptartment.
Alfie Jervis joins the sports department as a gap year student.
Please do welcome them and feel free to introduce yourself when you see them out and about.
There have been a few changes to the admin side of sports and we felt that it would be a great idea to put all the relevant information into one simple location. This will include links for fixtures and maps, some information about match reports and a little piece about sports kit and lessons. The first change that you will notice is that match reports will no longer feature in the newsletter. This is because they will now will be loaded onto our new sports web site fixtures pro. This will become the main source of sporting information for the school. on here will be fixtures, maps to venues, match reports and team sheets. Parents will be able to quickly and easily see what fixtures are coming up, where they are and who is playing. You will also be able to see the results and match reports after the event. Another change which did start last term is the introduction of online responses for fixtures. These will be sent out in the regular Friday emails, between ten days to two weeks in advance of fixtures. Please ensure that you do respond to these emails as it is hugely helpful for us to know where pupils are going after a fixture.
Games and PE Lessons
Pupils in Key Stage 2 have three sports lessons a week, two of these are in the afternoon and they are Games lessons. Games lessons will usually take place at Hinchley Wood Playing Fields until Easter and then at Esher Cricket club for the rest for the year (away fixtures take place elsewhere). One of the lessons is a skills lessons the other will be when fixtures occur.
Reception and Year 1 play Rugby in the Autumn term and football in the Spring term.
Years 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6, play football in the Autumn term (and require shin pads and football/rugby boots), they play rugby in the spring term (years 3, 4, 5, and 6 require mouth guards).
Everyone plays cricket in the Summer term.
Fixtures take place during one of the games lessons, some will be home fixtures whilst others will be away, please check the calendar for details. Fixtures Pro also contains maps for the locations of opponents. please note that it also lists the address of the school, many school have off-site playing fields, so please check the fixture email before heading to the school.
PE lessons may be indoors but higher up the school they are equally likely to be held outdoors.
