There have been lots of positives in PE this week. Our Year 10A netball team had a fantastic 15-9 win against STAGS, with the player of the match identified as Eden A. Great work from our Year 7A netball team on their 7-1 win against STAGS. Some superb passing and interceptions throughout. Sophie K was recognised as the game’s most outstanding player. Meanwhile, our Year 7B team showed great elements of play despite a loss to St Columba’s in a recent league fixture. Sophia D was acknowledged as the most effective KWS player.
After being affected by the weather in previous weeks, we had our first blocked Saturday football fixture of the season for Years 7-10 against Samuel Ryder. All teams equipped themselves well, with Year 7 drawing 2-2, Year 8 winning 3-0 and Year 9 managing to come through a tight game to prevail 3-2. Our Year 10 side, unfortunately suffered a loss, however they can be encouraged by the performance.
Our Year 11 boys football team had a brilliant 8-0 win in the county cup. They now progress to the quarter finals. Some excellent performances throughout the side but special mention to Jordan C for scoring 4, including a contender for goal of the season. Lewis N in central midfield was everywhere, breaking up play and showing composure when pressurised in possession.
The Year 8 boys have a county cup quarter final to look forward to on Monday, our Year 9s have a district cup fixture today and our U13 girls also have a district cup game on Monday too.
In basketball, our Year 7 team had a great 20-2 win against Townsend and the Year 8 side won 37-11 against St Albans School. Both teams put in a good team performance at both ends of the court, with excellent rebounding from Marley M and Charlie R. Well done to all of those involved.
On Thursday this week, 11 Year 9 students attended the Herts county inclusion champions training at Hertfordshire Sports village. The session started with a talk from Steve Frew, an ex team GB gymnast, and two young athlete role models about the importance of inclusion in sport. They then spent an hour experiencing 6 different inclusive activities and discussing different ways they could be adapted to include people with different needs, including wheelchair users and those with visual and hearing impairments.
Once they had finished the activities, they spent some time working with school games organisers and young athletes to come up with a plan for how they will deliver the various activities within KWS to their peers. Thinking about the who, how and what will it look like and also the implementation and impact this would have. All the students conducted themselves brilliantly throughout the afternoon and demonstrated all the KWS values representing the school fantastically.
Lastly, Year 7s have Sports Hall Athletics team trials before school at 8am in our sports hall on Monday.
