YR GROUP - KS1
VENUE: Woodkirk Academy
SCHOOLS ENTERED: Gildersome, Birchfield, East Ardsley, Blackgates and Hill Top Primary
'The KS1 seated volleyball competition was a huge success; 41 Year 1 and 2 students from Gildersome, Birchfield, East Ardsley, Blackgates and Hill Top attended the event. This was the first time all of the students had played seated volleyball but many adapted very quickly to the game. Lead through a series of skill activities by Woodkirk's Sports Leadership Academy students, teams were equipped with the rules and techniques required to take part in games. School's played each other in a friendly round robin format and it was a pleasure to see all students enjoying competitive games and using skills taught by Woodkirk's Sports Leaders. Overall, a thoroughly enjoyable event for all involved and an activity primary school's will be taking back to their PE lessons.'
