We have enjoyed an exciting start to the academic year for the teaching of PE and competitive sport at Church Langton. The arrival of our sports coach, Mr Williams has had a big impact. He assists in the teaching of PE for all classes as well as organising games at break and lunchtimes. The extra-curricular clubs have also been enhanced by his arrival with the addition of extra tag-rugby sessions and a breakfast badminton club.
The sports teams have been busy with pupils representing the school in boys and girls football, netball, uni-hoc, indoor athletics, table tennis and cross country running. Each team have represented the school demonstrating excellent sporting values and our pupils are often praised by event organisers for their conduct.
Success has also been achieved in many of these events. The year 5 and 6 netball team won the Robert Smyth Academy tournament and the Leicester High School High five tournament. Both the boys and girls table tennis teams were runners up for the Harborough and Blaby competition, while the year 3 and 4 uni-hoc team won the Robert Smyth Tournament which was contested by fifteen teams.
The league competitions have also started well with the netball teams, girls football and boys football teams all enjoying success in their opening rounds of matches.
Our growing list of extra-curricular clubs has also benefited more pupils with gymnastics, cheerleading and badminton added to the opportunities on offer. Mrs Sparkes is now busy planning the clubs for next term.
