On Tuesday 21st September 2021, a team of 8 Y4 boys were able to attend a Cross Country training competition at Leeds West Academy. The boys did a great job and showed real Stanningley team spirit.
Today, Mr Anderson our Primary Sports Coordinator, introduced Class 4 to Goalball. Goalball is a unique Paralympic team sport for visually impaired players. However, in the UK, anyone can play as everyone wears eyeshades. Instead of using sight, you listen for the audible ball and feel for the tactile court. It's great fun! Goalball is a 3 v 3 sport and is typically adapted for a school environment using benches and mats in place of the goals and tactile court used at the Paralympics. There are vital non-playing roles required in goalball including goal judges, officials, timekeepers, and scorekeepers.
Class 4 made a fantastic start to the new academic year. One of the first tasks of the new term was to work together in order to decide upon the classroom rules. At the end of the activity, the children used the 'Diamond 9' formation to prioritise their rules. We are looking forward to a very successful year in Class 4.
