Twineham Sports Experience Day

24th June 2016
Twineham Takes Kids Off Timetable For The Day
Each year we try and organise something exiting for the children that is just for fun. Last year we had the whole school trip to Groombridge Place and this year we have been working hard to organise a Sports Experience Day.
On Friday 24th June we are taking all children off timetable to enjoy a day of sport. The event will run at the school and we have arranged for specialist people to come in and provide sessions for each and every child. The aim of the day is to give each child the chance to try something new that maybe they have never or would never get the opportunity to do. The children will be separated into their individual year groups and then each group will follow a timetable throughout the day until they have been to all 7 stations (45 min per session)
Each station will be a different sports experience. Throughout the day the children will be able to enjoy the following:
 
 
Tri Golf – Burgess Hill Golf Club
Cricket – County Cricket Ground, Hove
Tennis - The Weald Tennis and Squash Club and club provider at Twineham
Rebounding – Debbie Balls, Rebounding Coach and club provider at Twineham
Fun and Games – Julie Rowe - Personal Trainer and Club provider at Twineham
 
Children will get one session of rest and they will also get chance to visit the Fruit tent where they will be able to create their own fruit salad. We will be giving the children a selection of fruit to use; Apples, Oranges, Grapes, Strawberries and Bananas.
 
We are all set for a really fun day; a lot of planning has gone into making this a special day for your child so we hope they enjoy! We will upload photos to the website as soon after the event as possible. 
Sports Experience Day

"I was so happy and excited I didn’t know I loved sport; I thought I wasn’t good at it but today changed that." Rayea

 

What a fantastic day we had trying out lots of different sports that some children may never have tried before. We are hoping that this may encourage them to take up this sport, if not now maybe in the future. A huge thank you to Mrs Killick and Mrs Stafford who organised such a fun day and to FOTS who put up the gazebo’s. We were even lucky with the weather.

 

Here are some quotes from the children.
