SOUTH DEVON COLLEGE STUDENTS CONTRIBUTE TO SPORT
AT WHITE ROCK PRIMARY SCHOOL
Every Monday this half term, students from South Devon College have been visiting White Rock to lead some sporting activities for our pupils. This forms part of the hands on experience they need to gain their Community Sports Leaders Award.
These students have been planning and evaluating lessons for Owls and Magpies, and have also successfully led our Year 1 and 2 multi skills club after school.
Thank you all for our great start to collecting Sainsbury's Active Kids 2017 vouchers!
We are up over 8000 vouchers in just over three weeks which is a huge effort already! Well done to Year 3 and 4 who have held onto their lead for a third week, although Year 5 and 6 are getting closer!
Keep them coming in please!

PE Kit Guidance
Although each class has a specific day for their PE lessons, it is sometimes necessary to change the timetable. This means that PE may take place on a day when your child will not be expecting it. It is therefore recommended that each child have their kit in school for the full week, washing it at the weekends, to ensure they have their PE kit for the whole school week. PE kit should consist of a white t-shirt, a pair of shorts or skirt and trainers. Plimsolls are acceptable, but are not ideal for outside sports due to their lack of grip (causing problems in winter months). Girls and boys with long hair should have this tied back away from the face. For PE clubs, children do not have to wear their PE kit, but should be appropriately dressed for the sport they will be participating in.
There are still a few spaces on some clubs, if you would like to get involved please fill in a letter and return the reply slip to reception. The letters can be found in the main foyer.
Team sports fixtures will run regularly throughout the year and you will be informed if your child is picked to play. For results and league tables for all the football teams, please visit the Torbay School's FA website (link below). White Rock are placed in the Large School South Leagues. You may also track cup competitions and other leagues here too.
White Rock is a part of the Brixham and Churston Sports Partnership which regularly runs festivals in sport and Outdoor Education for us to attend. Other primary schools from around the area attend and it is a fantastic opportunity for our children to build team working and social skills, developing in a holistic way. It also exposes children to sports competition in a fun and engaging way. The Children will be attending a variety of different sports events throughout the year and we will let you know when they are happening. Please ensure you child has returned the annual permission slip to their class teacher, in order that we may use this for the events.
Sports day was a massive success and we were blessed with some of the best weather we have had this year. The PE team wishes to thank everybody who made the day a success! We would also like to thank parents and carers for giving up their valuable time to come and support our children. It really made a difference to see so many people in attendance.
