Historically, January has always been the quietest sporting month of the year at Springhill, but there was plenty going on to kept the children occupied.
Students from Solent University started various placements here and they helped the teachers in their games lessons. Southampton Hockey Club and District Sport continued to deliver their games lessons to Year 5 and 6.
12 Year 2 children attended the City Multi Ball Festival at Woodlands Community College where they practised and improved their throwing and catching skills.
The local Fire Brigade delivered two games lessons to all the Year 5 classes as part of their community project, as well as talking to the children about fire safety.
12 Year 3 and 4 children travelled to Bitterne Park Secondary School for their badminton festival where they learnt various badminton skills such as the serve, the lob, the smash and many others.
10 Year 3 and 4 children represented the school in the annual City Gymnastics Festival. They spent a large amount of time learning the two routines during breaks and lunchtimes leading up to this event, and all the hard work paid off as they finished a very creditable 5th overall.
The U11 badminton league commenced at Bitterne Park Secondary School with 12 children representing the school in three teams (boys, girls and mixed).
The U11 girls’ 5 a side indoor football team won two and drew two of their group games at Cantell College to progress through to the City Finals.
Congratulations to all the children who represented the school this month!
