The High Sheriff and the Sheriff's Challenge - Take Two!
On Thursday 15th February we were delighted to welcome the High Sheriff yet again to one of our Trust schools! This time he travelled to Burford Primary and Nursery School to engage with the children in one of their Sheriff's Challenge sessions. He brought the sunshine along with him too this time and the children had a fabulous time. He was also able to spend some time with the Yr 6 pupils in school who were very interested to ask him lots of questions! Thank you so much to the Sheriff for taking time out of his schedule to encourage and motivate the children in the Trust.
The High Sheriff and the Sheriff's Challenge
The Sheriff of Nottingham has challenged children across Nottingham to try and complete 25,000 miles before the end of the academic year. Schools log laps around their playgrounds and fields to try to achieve as many miles per child as possible to get themselves on the much coveted leaderboard. Transform Trust have embraced the Sheriff's Challenge to get kids moving and hundreds of Trust children have been completing laps daily. Each week we have seen more and more Transform schools edge their way into the top 5 and this week for the first time a Transform Trust school have taken the very top spot! Well done to the children at William Booth for their fantastic efforts! Many of our schools have been encouraging their Sports Leader Young Ambassadors' to be involved in the running of these sessions and they have all done a brilliant job of encouraging their peers to get moving.
Last week Brocklewood Primary School were very lucky to have a visit from the Sheriff himself! It was great to see the Sheriff come out and see the children in action and see the impact that the challenge has had on them. He even joined in to help them with a couple of laps for their scoreboard so thank you very much indeed to the Sheriff. We are also incredibly fortunate to be able to welcome him to Burford Primary School on Thursday 15th February and the children are very much looking forward to meeting him. Thank you to the Sheriff and to the Civic Office for this support and for reaching out and encouraging the children.
Transform Trust Athletics Championships Years 3/4 - February 12th 2018
Transform Sport were delighted to see a number of Transform Trust schools come together at Harvey Haddon Sports Village on Monday 12th February to battle it out to win a qualifying spot in the School Sports Nottingham semifinals. It was a fantastic event and the enthusiasm, commitment and support by all staff and children involved was inspiring. The children took part in a variety of activities ranging from obstacle relay races to speed bounce challenges and standing jumps to record the highest scores possible. Brocklewood Primary School were victorious and they have qualified to compete in the next round. We will be following their journey and will keep you posted! Huge thanks also to Edale Rise Primary School, Burford Primary School, Pear Tree Community Junior School and Breadsall Hill Top Primary School who were all incredible and made for a brilliant afternoon!
On Friday 19th January, Transform Trust schools Breadsall Hill Top Primary School and Allenton Community Primary School travelled to Leicester to play in a football tournament against three teams from Discovery Trust, who are based in Leicester. The tournament was held at Mowmacre Primary School and Discovery Trust were represented by Mowmacre Hill Primary School. Kibworth Primary School and Parklands Primary School. Points were accumulated per Trust over the course of the 6 matches that were played. There was some impressive determination, some fast feet and plenty of mud! The children (and staff) all had a fantastic morning and it was a pleasure to see the schools playing together as Trusts. Congratulations to Discovery Trust who were victorious on this occasion.
The return leg will see Discovery Trust teams travel to Derby for a rematch! Following this, the finale will be 7 a side teams made up of children from a mixture of the participating Trust schools. This will be held in the summer term, date and venue yet to be announced.
Transform Sport would like to say a huge thank you to Discovery Trust (and particularly Mowmacre Hill Primary School) for hosting the event and for such a great welcome.
