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.

12/01/18 - Y5/6 Essex County Dodgeball Finals
12 Primary School Dodgeball Teams from different parts of Essex qualified for the finals, hosted at the Deanes Secondary School in Benfleet. The afternoon started with all 12 schools playing 3 matches each; the schools with the best results would then qualify for the Super 8's. Spinney started slowly, getting used to the smaller court size and smaller dodge balls, losing their first match against Bournemouth Park Primary 2:0. In the second match another loss but very close, against Birch Primary 2:1. Thankfully, Spinney won their third match against Beckers Green Prmary 2:0, a much better performance. Spinney had made it to the Super 8's, wow, a massive achievement. Spinney played some blistering dodgeball in patches during the Super 8 matches but struggled to keep the momentum going and failed to make the semi-finals. The children all said 'they had an amazing day and getting to the Super 8's was fantastic'. They'll come back stronger next year I'm sure! A big well done to Junior (Sparrowhawks), Cezary (Foxes), Suraj (Foxes), Hayden (Wolves), Sophie (Sparrowhawks), Alfie N. (Adders) and Carmen (Owls).
5/1/18 - Y5/6 Harlow District Basketball Competition
First few days back after the Christmas holiday, Spinney played in their first District Sports Event and unfortunately, didn't manage to play at their best. Spinney played 5 matches, the first against one of the tournament favourites, Nazing, easily winning by 20pts to 2pts. The results for their other matches: CS v Church Langley 4:6 (loss). CS V Churchgate 4:6 (loss). CS v Tanys Dell A 10:10 (draw). CS v Pear Tree Mead 2:8 (loss). Despite the losses, Spinney played some good basketball in patches and the tournament experience will definitely boost confidence levels for next time.
