image002Time 4 Sport Holiday Camp Report

Name    St John’s CE A Primary School Multi-Sports Camp

Dates    26th and 27th October 2015

Times    9am – 3pm (Monday & Tuesday)


On Monday the attendance was 15 and on the Tuesday attendance was 13. On Monday Dylan Colclough could not attend but did attend the Tuesday. Christian Smith, Tyler Barlow and Lily-May Barlow were unable to attend on the Tuesday. Jack Barlow, Skye Lea Shaw, Archie, Alfie and Charlie Hambleton did not attend any of the days.

What activities took place?

Throughout the sports camp the children participated fun sporting activities which included football, handball, netball, dodge ball, bench ball, basketball, football and kwik-cricket. Team building activities were also delivered, which allowed teams to bond together, build a good relationship to achieve tasks and win points for their team. Points were awarded for hard work, ability, teamwork and playing fair.

Over the two days we discussed healthy lifestyles and what helps us live a healthy lifestyle i.e balanced diet, positive thinking and plenty of physical activity.

The camp activities delivered allowed the children to have fun, make new friends, learn and stay active during the holidays J

Campers of the week?

After the 2 days, Time 4 Sport Staff discussed who they felt should be Campers of the week. The child that worked really hard and stood out was Lincoln Cotterill who won a voucher for a choice of Waterworld or Sports Direct. Lincoln was the ideal pupil, Lincoln tried his best in all activities, encouraged his teammates when participating in the team games and always played with a smile on his face.

What went well?

The camp went really well with the facilities on offer at the school excellent as always. Every child got involved in every single activity, working really hard either independently or as part as a team. From a coaches perspective we felt the children really liked the World Cup competitions that we did as the closing activity before the children went home, these competitions were tallied up each day, and the team that won the most points during the week were awarded certificates. The team that won the World Cup was the England team; this team consisted of Evie, Robin, Lincoln, Nicole and Dylan.

The hall space was big enough for all coaches to carry out their activities. Lunch time was hassle free due to the staff being able to use the table and chairs in the corridors next to the hall, and this allowed the children to settle down and eat their lunch in an orderly fashion, and we felt the sitting arrangements helped with that. Mrs Bettany and Mr Cox made all Time 4 Sport staff feel very welcome and comfortable and were always willing to help out where possible. They are a credit to themselves and the school.

What could be improved for the next camp?

In an ideal world we would like to get more children to attend the camp, the more children we have, the more variety in the games we can play. I think in future we should open the camp up to all pupil premium children in years 2 to 6. On the whole, the camp worked really well, the kids enjoyed themselves and they liked the fact that they all received a certificate for completing the Time 4 Sport sports camp.

Planned date for next sports camp?

February Half Term 2016
