School Sports Round-Up: A Busy Term On And Off The Field

Fyling Hall students made their mark in the world of sports last term, both on and off the school sports grounds! The weather has meant some rather wet games lessons and that the sports hall was put to good use of course! We’ve played some muddy hockey and football matches and run in the rain – but the damp weather has not dampened spirits during school sports!  We take a quick look back at a term in the sports department.

Sixth Form students pumped up their fitness with weekly visits to the gym, while younger pupils honed their skills in various competitions and school sports lessons. Some excellent netball and football matches have taken place in school and elsewhere over the term, with some challenging fixtures and good results.

Undoubtably one of our football highlights was an in-school game with Juniors and Seniors all playing together.

School Sports; Focus on Cross-Country

At the North Yorkshire Cross Country Championships, several Fyling Hall pupils proudly represented Scarborough and District, showcasing their endurance and speed. Year 8’s Meg stole the show at the Annual Red House Cross Country event, clinching a well-deserved first place!

Of course a highlight in our school sports was the annual school cross-country race on the last week of term. Having rescheduled it once due to heavy rain, the sports department anxiously watched the weather – and were relieved that the run could go ahead before the holidays!

An atmospheric mist settled in the trees as the race began but everyone gave it their best. The entire school from reception to sixth form and staff took part- running through woodlands and fields. It was really heart-warming to watch senior students supporting and encouraging the younger junior school pupils – running with them over the finish line. It encapsulates the spirit of our supportive and inclusive community.

In the Senior School Blue House were the winners, with 1678 pts with Red House following close behind with 1643 pts and in the Junior School Red House (Resolution) won with 485 and Blue House (Endeavour) followed with 344. Congratulations to Ellie for fastest senior school girl, Edward for fastest senior school boy, Issac for the fastest in the Junior School, each of the year group winners and to every single student that took part.

Netball

Over the term in school sports several neatball fixtures have taken place alongside netball within the games lessons. Welldone to all the teams for their hardwork and peserverance. A particular mention to the Year 9 girls’ netball team. They displayed impressive teamwork, becoming runners-up in their partnership tournament – winning four matches and losing only one.

Junior School PE In The Dark

At the Junior School form 1’s topic for the second half of term was Light and Dark. So they finished off the topic with a bit of a different school sports lesson – the entire lesson was in the dark. There was a lot of excitement as they picked up their glowsticks for a truly unique experience.

Hockey

Hockey fans weren’t left out, with the boys’ and girls’ teams battling it out in exciting matches throughout the term. The boys teams have been playing well with notable improvements as the term progressed.

The Year 9 girls team won the annual district hockey tournament at the end of February, conceding no goals!  You can read more about this on our earlier article.

Football

Football featured in games lessons throughout the spring term. The teams played various matches around the area. The weather was challenging at times.

Football, hockey, cross country and netball always feature in the school sports for the spring term though Fyling Hall students also benefit from rugby, basketball, mountain-biking and other sports.

Horse-riding

Horse-riding lessons continue throughout the year as an option within school sports lessons. During the spring term everyone to wrapped up warm for their rides across the moors and down to the beach. And spent time at the yard learning more about horse-care and equipment and how to read horse-behaviour. They also learnt specific skills. Read the hightlights or more about horse-riding here. Those wishing to ride should complete a form from the school office.

Summer Term School Sports

When we return to school next week we’re looking forward to the summer term sports and looking forward to more use of the outdoor pitches, and even the beach, in the warmer weather. Sports will include rounders, athletics, cricket and tennis this term.

Swimming will continue each week for our Juniors and culminate in the popular Swimming Gala in June.
