During the final week the Young Leaders led two year 6 classes from Owston Primary receiving excellent feedback from both staff and students. The sessions were based on the y6’s being led through a variety and range of playground activities which they developed back in school.
The Pyramid of schools ran its first middle school basketball tournament this term here at Outwood. Six teams participated, two year 6 from Adwick Park, two teams from Woodlands Primary and two year 7 teams from Outwood Academy.
The games were competitive and demonstrated good individual and team skills. Both gyms had supporters from all three schools which generated a great atmosphere on the night.

Deep Learning –
Two exciting options to the Deep Learning days have been generated by the PE department this term.
Here year seven students opt into 5 week unit of work based on physical activity.
To raise self esteem, confidence and team work by participation in a range of challenging activities not normally accessed through the traditional curriculum.
The group visited Hatfield Water Park and was led by the specialist instructors there and also experienced the thrill of racing at the Brodsworth Community fields which was directed by staff from the Community Rangers.
Climbing, orienteering, problem solving, raft building AND A Zip wire challenge to mention a few were experienced no matter the weather !
One of the highlights was a trip out to Stone Hill Special school where the year 7 from both groups were mixed together and experienced challenges together.
All students received a certificate of participation but more importantly some very special, funny memories.
This unit of work was delivered in conjunction with Charlie Hodge at Cycle Experience.
The outcome was to raise profile of alternative methods of travelling to and away from school to link with our school travel plans and to therefore adopt a healthier lifestyle. A group of y7 students gained cycle proficiency awards by developing their individual skills and safety awareness of cycling on and off the school site. The children planned their own routes which included a trip to Cusworth Hall. All received their Level 2 awards and some very tired legs !

The Level 1 Sport Leaders delivered their own football tournament by inviting students from our local primary schools. Adwick Park, Owston, All Saints and Northridge took up the challenge and brought along classes to compete with over 150 students turning up on the actual day .Each school was divided up into countries so they got the opportunity to work along side pupils from other schools.
Each leader delivered a 40 minute session which had a warm up, skills development and conditioned games. Each group then played a tournament against another group-each representing a country and the overall winners were Italy.
I was very impressed with all concerned at the event with the younger students working well together, the sun shone and the sessions were all well presented .It was an excellent morning with our students at the Academy demonstrating wonderful leadership and being exceptional role models. Well done !
