Tuesday 20th April was the first day back to school after Easter and extra curricular clubs were able to resume. The Year 7 girls were excited to take part in the girls’ football club after school. They brought energy, enthusiasm and a fantastic attitude to learn as well as developing prior skills.
Many pupils play football because it is fun, challenging and exciting. Most pupils also love being part of a team.
Football teaches cooperation and teamwork, it also develops positive social skills and teaches respect for others. It helps build self-confidence, a positive self-image and self-worth. It enables pupils to improve upon and develop a broad range of motor skills such as throwing, catching, running, kicking, balance, agility and coordination. As there are a large variety of skills and physical abilities required on a football team, there is a position for every child to play.
It was a great session led by Miss Watson (PE Student.)
If you would still like to join please email Mrs Mirfin or Miss Pursehouse – Football club is open to all abilities in Year 7. It is held on Tuesday evenings 3.45-4.45pm. The more the merrier.
