Sports Department & PE

This term we will host our own Springfield Sports Festival, where we invite other schools to come and join us in a carousel of skills tests. Our Friends at MMU and the School Games organisers will send specialist tutors to lead the activities.
  •  We have recently entered a Rowing Tournament  where the boys team won the best relay-squad award.
  • Springfield students have represented Crewe and Nantwich in the Regional Boccia finals in Liverpool. We received Boccia medals for our teamwork and skill.
  • The football teams won trophies in a Football Festival held by the Cheshire FA at Moss Farm. Springfield entered two teams and came away with a trophy each!

Sainsbury’s School Games

Our upper school multi-sports team recently travelled to Macclesfield to compete in the Regional Sainsbury’s Schools Games tournament. On arrival we were overwhelmed by the scale of the event, with over seven hundred students from schools across Cheshire, Warrington and Chester in attendance. After the opening ceremony and a quick hello from Active Archie, the schools games mascot, we made our way to the golf competition. We played a series of golf challenges, including chipping onto a target, distance judgement and accuracy tests. Springfield students really enjoyed meeting children from other schools and competing against them. The organisation of the event was excellent and our students were proudly awarded the ‘Spirit of the Games Award’ and received a glass trophy and certificates.

We are the Champions!

Congratulations to the Springfield Kwik Cricket teams who played really well during the recent County Kwik Cricket finals at Warrington Cricket Club. Both teams played a series of games against other schools during the day, with the second team placed third in the SLD category. I’m also pleased to announce that our First-team won the most games overall to become the MLD County Cricket Champions of 2018! You can see the Trophy in the cabinet in reception along with our other sporting awards for this year.

Big Splash, inter-class swimming Gala

During this term there have been a series of swimming events and Gala’s in both upper and lower school. The bunting was put up and the inflatables blown up in preparation for the inter-class swimming event. Students competed against classmates in a wide variety of water games and swimming activities, such as water basketball, diving for the treasure, sprint lengths and water volleyball. Each child represented a coloured team, scoring points for their team.  I’m pleased to announce that the overall winners of the swimming events are Buttercups with 144 points. Snowdrops and Roses came joint second with 124, and Bluebells scored 93. Well done to all involved and a big thank you to all students and staff and especially Janet & Laura who ran the event and kept everybody safe. These scores will be carried forward to the Sports Day events at the end of term when students and staff will have the chance to score even more points for their teams!
