National School Sport Week

This year, National School Sport Week (NSSW) is going to be a little different, with a lot of participating at home and some of you in your PODS at school. Usually, we play a variety of games, compete against ourselves, class mates and others in school! Lots of children also go and compete against other schools in our local area.

For 2020, Youth Sport Trust have provided an array of resources to host our own virtual NSSW next week. Below, you will find all the resources you need to have an AMAZING week!
I have created a timetable of activities (inserted into the scorecard) for the week but there is also a bank of activities for each day- if you fancy something different!
In addition to this, there is a video of me talking through the Teacher Guide to give a little more instruction.

Each day, a video of a member of staff doing a demonstration of the timetabled task will be uploaded to here for you to watch!

Please do share your experiences; we would love to see lots of photos being uploaded onto Dojo and Twitter with the hashtag #NSSWtogether .

Have a great week!

Platinum School Games Award

We’ve done it! Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary School have become the first school in North Sefton to be awarded Platinum Award for the School Games Mark. This is a Government led awards scheme, launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Schools in England are able to assess themselves across bronze, silver and gold levels of the Mark. If a school achieves Gold status for four consecutive years, they are eligible to apply for Platinum. To achieve Platinum, we had to meet all of the criteria for Gold then submit a detailed case study along with a supporting paragraph from our School Games Organisers, Mike Smethurst from Stanley High School. We are now exempt from next year’s School Games Mark award process and will automatically receive the Platinum Award again in 2019. We will also receive a special plaque to commemorate our achievement in the Autumn Term.

Squash

This year, we have introduced squash to our PE lessons. Each year group are taking part in a half term of classes with Jim Foggitt, who is a coach at local squash clubs (Northern & Southport & Birkdale). If your child is interested in lessons outside of school, they take place at Southport & Birkdale Club, Saturday mornings at 9.30am (free of charge). Here are some photos of our Year 5 pupils in action!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Christ the King Santa Dash

Last Friday, Christ the King (CTK) held a Santa Dash; the event was to support Queenscourt Hospice. Year 3,4 and 5 represented Our Lady of Lourdes at the event. When the children arrived at CTK, they were greeted by the school’s Santas Dash Mascot! Once joined by Kew Woods Primary, the young runners battled the cold, damp weather conditions to complete the 1km course. Everyone had a fantastic morning, where as a group, we raised £181 for Queenscourt- well done everyone!

 

U11s Premier League Stars Tournament

On Wednesday, the ‘A’ team took part in the regional finals of the Premier League Stars football tournament. The boys played extremely well, finishing runners up in the league with 4 wins, a draw and a defeat (to the league winners).

The event took place at LFC’s Academy, Kirkby and the children had a great morning! They were in a league with: Childwall, St John’s, Our lady of Pity, Northoote, Mosspits and Whitby Heath. The team played some exciting, attacking football with lots of goals, in particular, from Lucas Charnock. The team were also kept in a lot of the contests by some fantastic saves from goalkeeper Alex Roberts! Well done boys, you should all be very proud of yourselves for getting so far into the competition!
