Gold Award Press Release

Gold School Games Mark

We are incredibly proud to share that Swallowdale has achieved the Gold School Games Mark for last academic year due to the hard work of pupils and staff. The esteemed award was presented to us during an assembly so we can share it with pride!

Autumn 1 Sports Clubs at Swallowdale

KS2 Boys’ Football

Every Wednesday evening, the boys in KS2 take to the football pitch with Mr Giampalma With only a few weeks until they compete in a local tournament at Asfordby Amateurs, all the boys are fighting for their place on the team. They are working hard on their ball skills, communication and team work.

Year 5/6 Table Tennis

On a Wednesday, the large hall is a scene of flying balls as the children playing table tennis work hard to improve their speed and accuracy of play. The team are looking forward to taking part in their first competition early next term and we know they will represent Swallowdale with enthusiasm and spirit.

Year 3/4 Gymnastics

We love having Jazz from Little Springers join us on a Wednesday evening. Many of the children at Swallowdale have worked with Jazz in curriculum PE so the afterschool club is a great opportunity for them to try out some more adventurous movements.

Autumn 2 Sports Clubs at Swallowdale

Year 1 and 2 Dance Club

Each Tuesday evening, enthusiastic children in Year 1 and 2 take part in Dance Club. We love having Jess from The Core Dance Company join us for this. Most children have or will work with Jess in curriculum Physical Education lessons, hence the after school club is a fantastic opportunity for children to further practise and learn dance skills.

Year 3 and 4 Secret Sports Club

Alongside a variety of qualified sports coaches and Miss Hopkins, a small group of year 3 and 4 children take part in a club where they get a surprise as to which sport they get to try each week. These sports include: dance, rugby, fencing, boxing, orienteering and martial arts! This aims to improve their confidence in PE and to hopefully inspire these children to take up a sports activity on a more regular basis.

Year 5 and 6 Gymnastics Club

Every Wednesday, Jazz from Little Springers comes in to work with our year 5 and 6 children who love gymnastics. She’s so impressed with their ability so can really stretch and challenge them to learn more complex skills.

Year 5 and 6 Basketball Club

During Monday lunch times, our year 5 and 6 children luckily get the opportunity to work with Neil, a highly qualified basketball coach.  All the children are aiming high for a place on the team to a local tournament at Longfield Academy. They are really mastering half-court defence!
