So far this year Class 8 and 12 have enjoyed Basketball coaching from Darlington Storm. Class 10 and 11 also got into the spirit of the Rugby World Cup when learning how to play the game. Class 7 and 8 are taking part in Team Up. This is an SSP program aimed to improve children’s well-being and increase awareness of our feelings. We are looking forward to a visit from Yoga Mike this term. The Gymnastics Festival was a huge success and Class 6 were crowned our overall winners.
It’s been a busy year. Our teams have competed in Boccia, Cross Country, Football, Netball, Swimming and Basketball. Lots of children have enjoyed taking part in festivals such as Multi Skills and taking part in our very first Colour Run.
At Coxhoe, we’re trying to encourage children to be just as active at home. This means getting active for 60 minutes a day. Class 9 have shown the way by getting Active with Ted. They came up with lots of creative ideas, even when it’s cold.
County Cross Country Finals
A huge well done to the 12 cross country runners who braved the rain and mud at the Cross Country County Finals. The children were selected to represent Sedgefield SSP after their performances in October. Taking part at Bishop Auckland College this time, each and every one of them showed outstanding character and should be very proud of their achievements.
We recently held our our Dance Festival. All the classes had the chance to perform their routine to the rest of the school. They dances were all themed around a topic including Ancient Egypt and Space. There were lots of outstanding individual and team performances. A huge well done to Class 7 who will go on to represent the school at the Sedgefield SSP Dance Festival.
Tag Rugby Festival
Our Tag Rugby team took part in a tournament. We arrived at a boggy Newton Aycliffe Rugby Club in our finest sombreros! This was part of the Sedgefield Schools Partnership's Olympic theme - our school's country obviously being Mexico. Although results didn't go our way, the team improved throughout. We are most proud of the RESPECT award that the team won!
2018 - 2019
15 children took part in the Sedgefield DASH. We had huge success in the track races with all 7 children reaching their finals. Lots of children also came a way with medals. A special mention for Luke who won GOLD in the throwing event. Well done everyone for all their hard work and determination.
Today we held our own multi-sports festival. Teams from Classes 7, 9 and 10 took part in Netball, Football, Mini-Tennis, Boccia and Relays.
