Every year at SWF we offer our children a number of opportunities to represent our schools in a range of competitions. We take part in a number of Inter-School, School Games Competitions across our calendar year, as well as our SWF varsity competitions.
Our Inter-School competitions are where a number of schools from Sheppey and Sittingbourne compete against each other for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. If these competitions are also part of the School Games Events the winning school will get to go to the county finals to represent our area.
Our SWF varsity fixtures are events which are run with-in our schools. We are lucky enough to have two schools (West Minster and Rose Street) making up the Sheerness West Federation. Each term teams are selected to represent each school and take part in a competition against each other. The winning school then gets to keep the varsity shield for the following term until the next event. We have run this for the last two years. The first year West Minster ran out the overall winners while last year Rose Street came out on top. We are looking forward to seeing who wins this year!
Please see below for all our term 1 competition information;
Our competitions for term 2 are;
|Football Varsity (Rearrange from term 1)||Year 5 & 6||Monday 11th November||Rose Street||9:30- 10:45|
|Infant Agility||Year 1 & 2||Wednesday 20th November||Sheppey Leisure Centre||12-3|
|Basketball Competition||Year 5 & 6||Wednesday 27th November||Oasis Minster Site||1:30 – 4:30|
On Monday 11th November West Minster and Rose Street battled it out in our first varsity event of the year. The varsity football fixture was called off in term 1 due to the weather and so was played at the start of term 2. Rose Street hosted the event on a very cold Monday morning. Both schools played some brilliant football and everyone played with a smile on their face. In the end though West Minster ran out comfortable winners with a fantastic team display which saw every member of the team score! This means that they have taken the varsity shield back with them to keep for the term and now lead the overall varsity 1-0, but with 5 events still to come its all still to play for! Well done to all the children who took part.
On Wednesday 20th November, 10 children from year 2 took part in the Sittingbourne and Sheppey Infant Agility Competition. They took part in six events; bouncer, jumper,bowler, thrower, runner and tower build. Each event gave each child a score based on how well they did and these results are then added together to give an overall team score. All our children performed brilliantly and we ended up finishing 5th out of 11 schools, with only a few points separating 5th and first! On top of this our children represented our school brilliantly and we couldn’t be prouder of them all, well done to everyone who took part!
On Wednesday 27th November, 8 children from year 5 & 6 took part in the Sittingbourne and Sheppey Basketball Competition. The event was split into two groups with all of the teams playing each other. The top two teams from each group then progressed to the semi finals. Unfortunately we didn’t make it out of the groups but we did manage to win 1 of our 3 games and where narrowly defeated in the other two. One of our defeats coming from eventual finalises St George’s. We would like to say a huge thank you to Oasis for hosting the event and a massive well done to all the children who took part!
For live updates and results during the events check out our school twitter pages!
Each term we run two virtual challenges within school. Every child is given the opportunity to take part in these challenges and then the top 5 scores from KS1 and KS2 make it onto our leader board in the hall.
We would really love if you joined in at home! If you then get someone to let one of the PE Team know we can add your score to our parents / carers section of the leader board and you could win a prize for your child!
Our term 2 virtual challenges are;
- How many star-jumps can you do in 30 seconds
- How many step-ups can you do in 30 seconds
