This term is Multiskills, Team Cross Country and 5000m Challenge.
Again this term we have 3 events. This terms focus is on Teamwork in Multiskills inclusive events which schools compete in teams in their class bubbles scoring points in a variety of fundamental skills. Schools are competing in this event and will be sending results through to Sam (SGO) at the end of the term.
Schools are also participating in schools team cross country event. This event is to support schools in providing opportunities for children to run age appropriate distance, with the collective distance covered by each school being recorded and shared to create a Poole and East Dorset total. Schools totals are then added up to give them a total distance which they have run! A fun event designed to keep all children and staff active, as they can all contribute towards the schools total.
The final event is the 5000m Challenge for students in Y3-8. The students compete in either a participation, competition or advanced level. And run as part of a class, team of 10 or advanced team of 10 to their level of ability trying to compete 5000m as quickly as possible. Schools and students results are in the following age groups Y3/4, Y5/6 and Y7/8 and will be announced in the final week of term.
Poole SGO Area
Welcome to Poole School Games, my name is Sam Cox. I'm based at Carter Community School. I have been working as a School Games Organiser for 6 years and grew up in the Poole area myself. I love my job and take pride in it every day. We are trying to achieve our mission of providing opportunities for all in Sport, PE and physical activity so that all students can enjoy and succeed. Here in Dorset the School Games Organiser team have developed some fun games, resources, challenges and video's to ensure that we can keep active and healthy during this time of Isolation. These are some great ways to contribute towards the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity each day.
