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.

Rounders competition @ Harlow Cricket Club 7th June 2019
Thankfully the rain stayed away and we managed to play our rounder’s competition today at the lovely grounds at Harlow Cricket Grounds. There were 18 teams Nazeing A, Church Langley A and B, Fawbert and Barnard, Purford Green, St Lukes A, Hare Street A and B, Tanys Dell A and B, Holy Cross, Churchgate A and B, Henry Moore, St Albans, Little Parndon, Cooks Spinney and Roydon. which were divided into to 6 groups. The Team was; Rita, Cadence, Sami, Suraj, Antonis, Aanya, Tyler, Coco, Lucie, Presie, Carmen, Zain. We won our group beating Tanys Dell A team 10.5 points to 8.5 points and the Purford Green score line was 9 points to 5 points. After winning our group our students were delighted and excited with their performance. Our next game was against Fawbert and Barnard, this was a very close contested game with the conditions of the weather worsening too with lots of wind. The score line turned out to be 10.5 draw game, both teams played really well. The final game was against Nazeing and they had just beaten Fawbert and Barnard so we knew this would be a tough contest. We didn't start that well with Sami getting out on first base but we still kept going with a positive attitude with Saraj, Antonis and Carmen getting a rounder each for the team. Slowly the Nazeing team were getting our players out one by one by either catching it or stumping the post they were running to. Unfortunately we had 10 good balls left but our 2 batters left were Suraj and Cadence but they couldn't manage to get home so that brought an end to our batting game. We managed to score 4 rounders in total which was quiet a low score to beat. Nazeing had some really good player who scored rounder's each time for their team. The rain started then and the wind got worse, Nazeing were on 6.5 points at that stage giving them the win so we decided to stop due to the weather. I was so proud of our team today with how they played and next year we will come back stronger and better. Miss Jordan
