Competitive Sport at Killinghall

Throughout the school year, children have been given the opportunity to participate in competitive sport within school and outside of school.

The difference between playing games with friends at break time and competitive sport is that competitive sport offers a more organised and structured format for our children, which is key to their development. Not only do children develop the obvious physical skills and techniques during competitive sport, but they also learn essential life skills such as punctuality, organisation and problem solving. It teaches children how to deal with their nerves and how to deal with situations when they don’t go their way. Winning isn’t everything and children need to learn how to lose in the correct manner also.

Competitions provide opportunities for physical, physiological, emotional, and especially for our children, social development. When we first began participating in the Sainsbury’s School Games competitions, I was shocked at how shy and scared the majority of our children were at interacting with children from other schools. Shaking hands with other children at the end of a game was a real task for some of them. This is why I feel it is important to provide as many of our children as possible with opportunities that allow them to compete, develop their skills and learn the basic lessons sport teaches us.

Killinghall Lunchtime Football League

We provide an organised football league for Year 5 & 6 at lunchtimes. These games are held Monday – Thursday and children monitor their performance on the League display board. Children are responsible for looking at the display board to find out when their fixtures are, informing the rest of their team and arranging replacements if their players aren’t available.
