excellence for every child every day
Here at Rivelin we are proud to be an incredibly active community. The children have many opportunities to get involved in a variety of sporting activities, helping widen their knowledge of sports and being active. Over the years we have had a number of professional athletes join us for the day, spending time with the children, they love it! Alongside our annual sports day for the whole School, we get involved in run a mile and external competitions too, giving the children the opportunity to interact and compete with other Schools.
Take a look below at some pictures of our Children taking part in our sporting activities!
|Our Year 3 children had a fantastic time experiencing Goalball UK's new National Schools Programme. Goalball is an exciting Paralympic sport designed for people who are blind and partially sighted, however domestically and at a school level anybody can play!|
Some of our KS2 children participated in the Sky Sports Living for Sport. This was run in partnership
with Youth Sport Trust and was supported by world-class Athlete Mentors. The children were inspired
and it helped to build confidence and improve their practical skills.
Some children were invited to a new and exciting festival that took place at ICESheffield. Ten children
had the opportunity to try a number of activities - Ice Skating, a mini Curling festival on the Ice and High
Ropes - they all had a fantastic day.
|Billy Sharp (club captain) and Simon Moore (goalkeeper ) visited school today. They shared some of their favourite books with the children and answered many questions related to football and life. The children were very excited and really enjoyed talking and having their photographs taken with the stars.|
|One of the coaches from Sheffield United Community Foundation delivered the Parliament Education Programme to our Year 5 and 6 children. The day comprised of workshops and assemblies based around Parliament and democracy the children were really engaged with Parliament, democracy and politics through themes of rule-making and active citizenship.|
|Chance to Shine is bringing cricket to thousands of young people in inner- city areas. It uses the game to increase aspiration, promote social cohesion and create opportunities. The Year 5 children are really enjoying the opportunity and are looking forward to the cricket competition in June.|
Ellie Faulkner visited the school to share her experiences of swimming with the Great Britain Team - she definitely inspired many individuals.
|We were very excited to welcome GB Olympic Swimmer James Kirton to our school. James has represented Great Britain for over 6 years. James defied injuries to swim his way to the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. He lead a sponsored fitness circuit with all pupils, and followed this up with a talk and question and answer session. The aim of the event was to inspire the pupils to take up sport generally, but just as importantly to encourage them to discover and then pursue their passion in life.|
Some Year 6 children attended the School Sport Festival at SUFC Academy. We entered 2 teams for the 6-a-side competition.
We are really pleased to announce that Rivelin WON the tournament. Well done to everyone for participating in this event.
