Sporting Events

Nov 2020 –

We are pleased to announce that our school is taking part in a Quadkids competition. Schools from Beaminster and Bridport will be taking part within their own school bubble. Mrs Harris has selected (along with class teachers) two children from each year group to take part. It will
consist of four events: Standing High Jump, Standing Long Jump, Overarm Throw and 20m Sprint. Times will be taken along with distances jumped and thrown. The West Dorset Schools Partnership Sports Co-ordinator will be in school to oversee the event and each group will remain in their own bubble.

Bikeability will take place this year for 18 of our Y6 students. The first session will take place on Tuesday 10th November and continue for another 3 sessions. We are really pleased that so many children are taking part.

30.6.20 – Although no physical events have been happening in school, Dorset School Games Organisers have been working tirelessly to create a series of brand new virtual competitions. These have been available for all students to take part in to remain active, continue competing and keep smiling!

Over the past few weeks there have been different virtual competitions that our children have taken part in. The competitions have been designed for those pupils who are still in school as well as those who are at home. All competitions will be running until July 10th, after which there will be a celebration recognising all that took part.

Here are some photos of our children taking part in the gymnastics and cricket competitions.

Here at Parrett and Axe we offer a wide range of sporting activities to enable each child to participate in and enjoy and we are one of only 2 schools in Dorset that have been awarded the Platinum status again. We are so proud of our school and our children and it is testimony to the fact that everybody can be good at something.

Year 5 went to Weymouth Outdoor Education Centre on Tuesday 18 June. All the children took part in the sailing activity, learning how to steer and manoeuvre the boat using the sails. They also learned lots of nautical terms. Later on they went on a climbing wall, learning how to get foot and hand holds to scale the various walls using a body harness to make sure they were safe. The last activity of the day was to negotiate tunnels, following tracks using a head torch and teamwork to get them round. All the children had a fantastic day and learnt lots of new skills.
