Please look below at some of the sporting events that the pupils of St Lawrence take part in.
Inter School Sports
We are a small school but compete with all local schools. Many of these are 2 or 3 form entry. We enjoy doing well but we also enjoy competing and challenging our teams.
This year we will enter teams in a variety of inter school competitions. These include
Small schools football league y5/6
Danone Cup - Years 5/6 Boys and Years 5/6 Girls
Woking Football Club y4 tournament and girls y3/4 and y 5/6 tournaments
Greenfield 5 a side football tournaments- under 7s, under 9 s and under 11s
Netball league y5/6
Chobham Rugby Tag Rugby Y3/4 Y5/6
Cross Country years 3,4,5 & 6
Cross Country Relay
Each year we hold a Sports Day on our field. We are very lucky to have such super facilities and our children have the chance to compete in both track and field events watched by parents, carers and friends. We are helped by students from Woking High .
It is a lovely morning, the Governors sell refreshments and families have the chance to picnic together at lunchtime.
The Houses compete for the Sports Day trophy and then children are selected to go on and represent the school in the District Athletics events.
The Daily Mile
The Daily Mile was the brainwave of Elaine Wyllie, a headteacher in Stirling Scotland. She introduced it to improve fitness but also to improve children's social, emotional and mental wellbeing.
We decided to trial it from February 2016 and it was received with enthusiasm by children and teachers.
A course was marked out, 5 laps of both playgrounds and swimming pool area or 3.5 laps of the field. Children can run, jog or walk the course and are encouraged to improve on previous times and distances run.
Initially we found it was hard to keep count of the laps so the children collect a cube after each completed lap and once they have 5 cubes they are able to add a tick to their chart.
Each class aims to run at least 3 times a week plus doing a run as part of the games and PE sessions.
We have noticed improved levels of fitness and stamina across the school. Many pupils have joined running groups or Park Run events in the locality.
We are planning a number of events this year when parents can join in with their children.
Each year in the Spring term the 4 Houses play in a sporting competition. KS1 and Reception take part in a Multiskills tournament and KS2 are divided up into teams to play Tag Rugby, Netball, Football and this year we included Pop Lacrosse.
We are very lucky to have support from students at Woking High and all of our teaching staff also join in to make the afternoon run smoothly.
These are some photos, it was a good afternoon of sport: some fiercely fought matches and lots of fun.
It was rather windy but the sun shone and we enjoyed using our great facilities; not many small schools have two courts and a huge field to play on, plus an additional playground and mini field.
