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.

Daily mile going strong 💪, the children love running around in their bubble ie. their year group September 2020
We are so happy to have the daily mile running again during this new academic year 2020/2021! Now more than ever it’s so important to be fit & healthy during this pandemic. It’s brilliant for the students fitness levels and gets them better prepared for learning . Currently the winners of the Daily mile trophy 🏆 has been Rabbits 🐇 Butterflies 🦋 and Foxes 🦊 ! We are planning to reward the best class at the daily mile from Keystage one & keystage two with a fun day trip to the park & bring whatever PE equipment the students choose at the end of the year. We have badges ordered to reward the best boy & girl in each class who we feel is putting in the most effort to improve themselves at the daily mile it’s not just about who’s doing the most laps.
New outdoor gym on key-stage 2 area 16th September 2020
We are delighted to have a new outdoor gym, we will incorporate it into some of our PE Fitness lessons & it is being used by the students at lunchtime too on rotational basis so every year group gets a chance to use it. Students will be shown how to use the equipment correctly to get fitter, healthier and learn about the different muscles 💪 in their bodies. We will be talking about why it’s important to eat healthy to build muscle mass & why it’s good to keep a good balanced diet. In this current pandemic it’s more important than ever to get outdoors to get some vitamin D in the sunshine to give your mental health a boost as well as getting some exercise in the fresh air to boost your immune system.
