PE and School Sport
On the 8th March it was International Women’s Day, we sent some of our girls to a girl’s only tournament at Leasowe Recreation Centre to compete against other schools. They played 1 game against every other team and it was a fantastic tournament and everybody involved played brilliant. Our girls showed excellent maturity and they were amazing representatives of Orrets Meadow. We look forward to many more events and activities promoting girls in sport!
Our brilliant Year 6's took part in Judo lessons with Coach Chris from Wirral Judo Club. They learnt how to land safely, how to pin an opponent, how to be respectful and all types of trips and throws. Every session began with a bow or “Rei” in Japanese to show respect for the Sensei and other children before breaking off into the first task.
After weeks of learning the correct techniques and how to treat the sport and each other respect, it was time for the final battle. A Sumo style tournament utilising everything we had learnt before a winner was crowned and given Chris’ prestigious Black Belt! The children had an amazing time and did exceptionally well
A Huge thank you to Coach Chris and we cannot wait for next year when our next group of year 6’s get their turn to battle it out for the Black belt.
