A six week progressive block of golf lessons delivered by Neil Holman and his team of professional coaches at TGC. Minibus transport provided by school. Warm clothes required as club run outdoors.
Please do not apply if you have already taken part in this club in previous terms to allow the maximum amount of children to experience being able to learn golf.

WEDNESDAY 3.15 - 4.15
Indoor Cricket Y1-2
Run in association with community coaches from Brixham Cricket Club held in the school hall.
This club will allow Y1&2 an introduction to the game of cricket, building the skills needed to be successful, as well as an introduction to the competitive game itself.
This club is supported by the White Rock PE and Sport Premium funding.
THURSDAY 3.15 - 4.15
Cheerleading club is open to all children in Years 3 and 4. We will be creating a series of short routines to music chosen by the children who attend. Don't worry if you have never danced or taken part in cheer leading before, this club is all about using poms to have fun and keep fit.
Although each class has a specific day for their PE and Dance lessons, it is sometimes necessary to change the timetable. This means these lessons may take place on a day when your child will not be expecting it.
It is required that each child have their kit in school for the full week.
PE kit should consist of:
Dark colour tracksuits may be added to kit bags as extra kit during winter term, and may be worn if the lesson is outside – This is not instead of normal PE kit as children are expected to be in shorts for indoor PE, and all Dance lessons.
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. Please read the clubs letter carefully each half term to ensure the correct kit is available (e.g. boots and shin pads for football)
Lastly, please ensure ALL PE and clubs kit is clearly named as it makes it much easier to reunite children with the correct kit!
As always, thank you for your support.
Mr Leaman and Mrs Tyson

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.
