Here at Yanwath Primary School, we take pride in showcasing the talents of our pupils across all areas of the curriculum. Sporting events such as cross country, tournaments and dance showcases allow our pupils to excel outside of the classroom. Throughout Yanwath’s past, we have had sporting success stories such as swimmers winning galas, footballers dominating tournaments and gymnasts performing at county level. At Yanwath, we like to give our pupils access to sports and activities that are far from ‘the norm’ and we have had experiences of wheelchair basketball, lacrosse, footgolf and extreme Frisbee.
Due to current restrictions, we are unfortunately unable to compete in sporting competitions with other schools, however, that doesn’t stop us! Our after-school clubs have been a hive of activity since we started back in September; with running, tag rugby, dance and indoor athletics clubs running throughout the week. In autumn term 2, we will be continuing to provide sports activities during after-school club, offering multi-skills and dance.
Moving forward to when normality resumes, we will look to reinstate team-sport events such as football, netball, cross-country and multi-skills tournaments, as well as hosting our whole school sports days and inter-house events. We also hope to incorporate a water sport into our upper key stage two curriculum, such as canoeing or sailing.
