PE and sporting events

At Worlaby Academy we endeavour to provide opportunities for the children to experience sporting activities away from the academy, with other schools. These are a mixture of competitive and non-competitive events which the children all participate in with great enthusiasm.

Events this year have included: Cricket, golf and athletics at the Humber small school games. This was a fantastic opportunity to particpate against other schools a simialr size to ours and we brought home gold and silver medals.

We have also enjoyed cross country, netball and swimming events, as well as a trip to the English Institiute of Sport in Sheffield. This fantastic venue is the training home of Jessica Ennis-Hill, Anthony Joshua and the Great British Boxing squad, as well as GB paralympic table tennis team and the Sheffield Sharks professional basketball  team. On arrival into the fantastic indoor athletic faciltiy the children's reaction was "wow this is incredible" and led to a meeting with Jessica Ennis-Hill's coach Toni Minichiello. What an inspirational day.
