End of Spring Term

It’s been a positive Spring term at Moving Matters, despite the incessant rain! I’m sure like us you’re all looking forward to some nicer weather over the summer months. In January, 4 new Primary PE Specialists started in their new roles and it’s been great to see them all bed in so positively in their schools. In addition we also added PJ to our cohort, who has settled in fantastically well at Granton. Congratulations to Aristide, Aaron, Rhys and James on a great first term. This term’s competitions have been brilliant events, as we’ve continued to see an upsurge in participation and welcomed new schools too. In total over 500 children have attended our competitions and enjoyed representing their schools. Last week’s Futsal was another great example of how brilliant school sport can be. See below the winners and runners up from this term’s competitions:
  • Dodgeball:
    • Winners - Julians primary school
    • Runners up - Finton House prep
  • Netball:
    • Winners - Granton primary school
    • Runners up - Julians primary school
  • Futsal:
    • Winners - Woodmansterne primary school
    • Runners up - Finton House prep
We look forward to 6 great events this summer, see details below and get yourselves booked in. This Easter break promises to be a busy one. We had fantastic attendance during the February half term at The Elmgreen, particularly at our popular football camp on the beautiful 3G astro and hope to welcome back all those children again. In addition we are supporting Lambeth and Croydon children who are on free school meals, through our HAF programmes and we’ll also be at Immanuel and St Andrew next week for a 4 day camp. Keeping children engaged and active during the holidays is something we are hugely passionate about and we’re always looking for new ways of stimulating our attendees. Most recently we’ve invested in laser tag, which was very popular in February and so we’ve purchased additional sets for all our sites. This half term our team also attended a CPD event hosted by the NFL, so that we can train more of our team to coach American Football in schools and at camp. Wishing everyone a great Easter break. Rob WilkinsonDirector
