Irk Valley Extra Curricular Sports Activities
Keeping active and participating in as many different sports is key to a child's physical and mental growth. Developing physical fitness, building mental resilience and fostering relationships through sport all have added benefits in school and every day life.
The PE curriculum is wide and varied and gives all children the opportunity to participate and find that activity they really enjoy. It's also an opportunity to hone their skills and participate in sporting competition.
Please take a look at your child's PE provision for the next academic year.
Manchester Girls' Futsal Tournament
After only a few weeks of practise, our plucky girls were thrown into their first ever football tournament.
On arrival at the JJB Soccer Dome, the girls nervously assessed the other 8 teams. But nerves were soon dispelled as they drew their fist game and won their second.
Despite a defeat in the third round, they girls were undefeated in the final three matches.
Well done to
Irk Valley Dodgeball
After weeks of training and practise, the tournament was upon us and the children did not fail to impress.
Over 16 schools entered the competition so expectations of progressing through the group stages were realistic. However expectations soon grew as we won our first game, then the next, then the next until we narrowly lost our final game against the school who were to go on and win the qualifying tournament.
Our excellent win record does mean the children will go onto the greater Manchester finals in June.
Well done Irk Valley.
