We believe that children learn to their best potential when they are given opportunities to develop their physical fitness. Not only does being active help to keep their bodies healthy, but it enables mental well-being and happiness too.
Whole School Sports Challenges 2016
All of the pupils had a fantastic fundraising day raising £416 for Sports Relief. The children participated in two sporting challenges. The first event was the whole school Dance Off. As part of the school fitness challenge each class had been practising a dance routine, ready for the big event. Every year group performed a fantastic routine, with year 3 winning out with a brilliant performance to 'Uptown Funk'. There was also some excellent creative dancing from teachers as well, especially Mrs Evenden and Mr Gosling.
In the afternoon, all of the pupils and staff carried out a Skipathon Challenge on the playground. Each pupil managed to skip for a whole 10 minutes in total - well done everyone!
At Kings Hill School we:
- Take part in a whole school fitness challenge each term. In 2016 so far we have taken part in a whole school skipathon, dance off and Olympics challenge !
- Compete in inter-house activities in our school houses at Sports Day.
- Give children many opportunities to represent the school in external competitions, e.g. football, tennis, cricket, district sports etc
- Learn to swim in Key stage two usually in Year 4
- Join different extra-curricular clubs throughout the school year such as cross-country, tag rugby, football, multi-skills, netball, gymnastics, dance, cricket, tennis and mountain biking
- Invite specialist sports coaches to enhance our PE curriculum across the whole school, e.g PASS from Aylesford Sports College and a mountain biking instructor to provide the opportunity to learn off road biking skills in Y5 and Y6
Mountain Biking at Kings Hill School
As part of our exciting Sports curriculum, children in Years 5 and 6 enjoy mountain biking sessions on our fabulous grounds with our own Orbea and Saracen bikes and helmets that were purchased last year by the KHSF.
The sessions take place with Ollie Ireland, who is a fully qualified primary teacher and mountain bike instructor from Track n Trail Biking—www.tntbiking.co.uk.
The sessions follow 5 learning outcomes including ’riding over bumpy ground with control’ and ’maintaining speed whilst cornering.’ The sessions also maintain and improve fitness, practice teamwork and inspire a love of the outdoors. The aim is also to generate an interest in biking and improve core skills that the children will want to continue afterwards.
We will also be looking to develop a more permanent cycling trail through the grounds this year. The children love mountain biking on our grounds and this has been a huge success in providing more sporting opportunities for children.
