Extra Curricular Sport

Irk Valley Extra Curricular Sports Activities 2018 -19

 

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.

Irk Valley Interform Tag Rugby

 

After weeks of honing their skills during lessons and after school clubs, the children had the opportunity to test themselves against their year group counterparts.

Organised by Coach Mark, each class in years 4-6, selected their teams to compete for the right to be called "Year Champions".

Matches were played at lunchtimes and were played in a competitive yet respectful way with all children playing to their full and showing excellent sportsmanship at all times.

It was fantastic to see so many enjoying Rugby and showing the teachers their amazing skills.

Well done everyone.

Irk Valley Tag Rugby - A and B Teams

 

After weeks of training and practise, the tournament was upon us and the children did not fail to impress.

Over 12 schools entered the competition so expectations of progressing through the group stages were somewhat low. However expectations soon grew as both teams won their first games, then the next, then the next until finally, we finished the afternoon with a 100% record.

Our excellent win record means the children will go onto the second qualifier stage next Wednesday

 

Well done Irk Valley.

 

Tuesday 25th September 2018 - Irk Valley Year 5/6 boys football team vs Park View Community School.

 

Our group of children played very well in their first competitive match.  We had lots of possession and worked well as a team.  Unfortunately, the opposition were too well organised for us and managed to win the game 6-0.

 

We will learn from our errors and hopefully be more successful in the upcoming games.

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.
