PE AND SPORT AT COOKS SPINNEY
Children at Cooks Spinney are given lots of opportunities to participate in sports during and after school. Some of the sports activities that have taken place over the last year include; netball, rounders, cricket, tag rugby, football, athletics, dodgeball, swimming, gymnastics, dance, hockey, table tennis, badminton, cross country, basketball and taekwondo.
By offering lots of different sports clubs and building up our PE and sport resources, we are leaving a legacy for the school community for the future. We have already established a reputation as a ‘sporty school’ over a relatively short time. We will continue to ensure that all future children have the same opportunities as our current children receive now.
In July 2017 we were awarded the Sainsbury’s School Games Gold Award which reflects the pride we take in offering children as many opportunities as possible to get involved in sport. We are providing many more opportunities for our children to participate in competitions, through BMAT events and festivals and also by regularly entering teams into to Harlow District Competitions.

Year 6 Netball Tournament, Friday 19th March, 2021
Our year 6's have not played Netball for a year so we wanted to remind the students of the skills and rules of the game before starting to play competitive games. The students enjoyed learning netball skills such as shooting, chest pass, and pivoting. We introduced a teamwork drill where the students had to pass the ball around the circle and one of the students had to sprint on the outside to beat the ball being passed around. We had a passing and moving drill where one of the students was the receiver and pass it back to the player when they moved into space. We had 4 shooting drills and we had one of students which helped improve their hand-eye co-ordination skills. After that the students got to play a 4-side game of netball against each other, we have a brand new set of pink bibs which the student really liked. We had some of the students who managed to score from really far away in the game which was super skills. All students really enjoyed the experience and left saying they wanted to play again. Luckily there are 2 free tastier netball sessions from Crosskeys Netball Club at Mark hall Sports Centre, London Road, Harlow, CM17 9LX on 14th & 21st of April at 5-6pm. Feel free to get in touch if you need more information. Thank you, Miss Jordan
Exciting new equipment for our school & inter fixtures organised , 12th March 2021
Delighted to be able to put up our new pink netball posts today for our students to utilise in the next few weeks. Currently we are recording some fitness score in lessons regarding ABC’s which is agility, balance & co-ordination. Other fitness tests include the 6 minute run, standing long jump, hand strength test & speed bounce. We hope to finish these before Easter & start teaching our summer sports after Easter such as Netball, Rounders & Cricket. Next Friday we are running a Netball Tournament internally for our year 6 classes in the morning which will be exciting with our new posts and new netball bibs. Year 2’s will have a multi-skills event outdoors in the afternoon which will also be held on our school grounds on the big playground! The extra time on Fridays doing activity aswell as their normal 2 hour PE lessons a week will help to build up their fitness quickly after 3months of lockdown with no school & playgrounds shut. We are happy to announce we have 10 new archery sets to call our own to use within future lesson, hopefully weather permitting we might even use them outside. We have bought 2 Kurling & 3 Boccia sets for our students to use too which is brilliant news especially for our SEND children who love those sports. Bring on the the sunshine & let the games begin. Have a great weekend everyone. Thank you, Miss Jordan
