Spotlight on sport - Spring 2

Although it’s been another short half term, we’ve still managed to fit a lot of sporting moments here at EGJS!

Every year group has participated in at least 2 hours of PE lessons a week, on top of their daily mile, playtimes and active movement breaks - all of which encourage 60 active minutes each day. Year 4 are our final year group to have danced with Ricky this academic year and have enjoyed performing a variety of sparkly routines. Enjoy your summer Ricky; we’ll see you next year!

Year 3 enjoyed taking part in their tennis coaching sessions with coach Lucy who will be leaving us after this week. Thank you Lucy; the staff and children have really enjoyed your expertise. Finally, Y5 have taken part in Chance to Shine cricket sessions on a Thursday with various Edgbaston cricket coaches. The coaches also kindly offered coaching after school sessions - free of charge to a number of pupils. As always all of our coaches have enjoyed working with our brilliant children and I am so incredibly proud of them and their attitude to PE lessons.

The football season has continued for our Y5/6 boys and our younger girls. Unfortunately, our very patient Y5/6 girls are still waiting due to more bad weather and cancelled matches but they’re looking forward to lots of fixtures after Easter! We even managed to get a game for our Y3/4 boys and the next generation of football looks very promising! Our Y5/6 boys remain unbeaten and we have managed to get some fixtures in this half term to give even more y5/6 boys the opportunity to represent the school with more to come. The Y3/4 girls have taken part in another super tournament and will be attending the celebration event next half term. What a season so far! Thank you to the staff and families who have helped with lifts and supported our teams. I really couldn’t do it without you.

A team of 9 children took part in the school games PANATHLON where they had to take part in a number of different activities from bowls, to curling to table tennis. Well done for representing the school so well.

Twenty children from across Y4 and 5 took part in the CV life Tag rugby tournament at the AT7 centre where they were congratulated on their superb manners, values and sporting conduct. Henry was awarded a special trophy for his integrity. Ten of our Y3 children enjoyed representing the school for the first time at the school games Gymnastics competition coming 6th out of the whole city. Incredible work team! Flynn, Jack, Daniel and Oliver made up a brilliant team at the school games Archery competition and again were super ambassadors for our school. Finally, we can’t forget our amazing Y6’s who completed their OAA (outdoor adventurous activities) unit at Manor adventure 2024 pushing themselves to their limits, working fantastically as a team and making lasting memories.

Please follow our Facebook page to see all our successes so far! We have so much to look forward to in summer term, with the launch of the go parks challenge, the children’s mile, the Olympic build up, the Flame of friendship and of course our incredible sports day which is in the calendar for Tuesday 2 nd July. Please keep an eye out on Facebook and the newsletter for updates! After school and lunchtime clubs have offered a variety of activities for all children again, including netball, dance, football, dodgeball, multi sports and cricket to name a few! Thank you again to everyone who has supported our clubs this half term. 😊



Spotlight on sport- Spring 1

We have started the new year like we ended the last one, with a busy half term of sport here at Eastern Green. Even though it’s only been 5 weeks we’ve packed lots in! Each year group has completed at least 2 hours of PE lessons a week, on top of their daily mile, playtimes and active movement breaks, all of which encourage 60 active minutes each day. Year 3 have been dancing and sparkling with Ricky each Tuesday and they have enjoyed performing a variety of routines. Year 6 took their turn to have tennis coaching from coach Lucy! It’s not quite been the weather for tennis, but the children have still loved every minute of it and Lucy has said how brilliant they are.

The football season has officially begun for our Y5/6 boys’ squad. The boys are currently unbeaten in the league and cup. WOW! It’s great to see the team working so brilliantly together and we can’t wait to see what the season has in store for them. The girls in Y5/6 have been patiently waiting for their turn with fixtures due to commence after half term. However, some of our Y5/6 boys and girls’ squad did get to play in the EFL tournament a couple of week ago, and they were incredible. It’s fabulous to see girls and boys playing alongside each other. Our boys’ squad were also invited along to Epic’s football tournament, where again they were unbeaten! Our boy’s team had to play Pearl Hyde in the league and the Harry Shaw cup, so last night they played both games. It was quite some night, as the team won the cup game 3-0 and the league game 5-0. The goals came from Archie B, Alfie and Archie S, with Alfie being awarded player of the match. Every time we take our boys out to fixtures, they make us so proud, not just in their abilities but also in the way that they show all of our values on and off the pitch.

During the first week back in January, our Y3/4 girls represented us at match day 4 at the AT7 centre playing some incredible football. They make us proud everytime and it’s lovely to keep giving lots of girls the opportunity to play in such a supportive environment. It really is a great tournament. Unfortunately, the February one was cancelled so they are looking forward to March! Progress each month is unbelievable! Thank you to the staff and families who have helped with lifts and supported our teams!

This week, 12 year 6 pupils took part in rowing competitions at the AT7 centre against lots of other schools in Coventry.

Boys’ team - Archie, Hugo, Henry and Zack

Girls’ team - Ava, Darcey, Ava-Mae and Annalise

Mixed team - Jaxon, Jack, Felicity and Lucy-Jade

They have all been training hard in preparation for the competition and during the event they had to row for 1 min 30 secs individually and then take part in a 4 minute relay. The boys rowed 2064m - placing 7th out of the whole of Coventry, the girls rowed 1982m placing 12th out of the whole of the city and the mixed team rowed 1826m and we await their finishing position. All of the teams represented our school brilliantly and the teamwork and support for each other was admirable! We are very proud of them all.

We’ve had another varied set of after school and lunchtime clubs on offer again including netball, dance, football, dodgeball and tag rugby to name a few! Thank you to everyone who has supported our clubs this half term.
