At St Luke's we encourage children to take part in a wide variety of sporting activities so that they have the confidence to grow as individuals and learn about the positive aspects that team sports can bring.
Please view our Sports Blog here or click on the images below to see more of our recent events.
We have been awarded SCHOOL GAMES GOLD AWARD for sport. Congratulations everyone who has made this possible through their hard work and enjoyment of the sporting opportunities’ that we provide.
Sports Week (Olympic themed)
Each class bubble took part in a selection of sporting activities across the week. These where following the theme of the Olympics. (A selection of photographs can be seen in a gallery at the bottom of the each class page). Each class competed and represented their house teams Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. On a specific day, each person came dressed in their house colours to take part in each event. In the classroom, children also found out about a variety of Olympic events, the history of the Olympic games and the athletes pledge that each competitor takes.
Highlights from across the week include:
Using our daily mile track and timing how long each person took to complete 3 laps. We gave the children opportunities to try and beat their initial times through practice and determination.

Results for each event were taken. The winning house team was announced in our sporting assembly. We gave medals to the winning house team as well as celebrating everyone’s achievements with stickers and a well-deserved lolly ice.
Congratulations to team Luke who won overall.
Virtual Summer Games
Across our sports cluster we competed virtually against other schools.
Each school did the same events and followed the criteria instead of attending games off site we did them in our school grounds.
We took part in a variety of events and submitted our results and scores to Mark Poole, our School Games Organiser.
In Tennis we finished 4th.
In Rounders we entered two teams. Our A team finished 2nd and our B team finished 5th.
In Gymnastics we also entered two teams. Our A team finished 5th and our B team finished 5th.
In the Cricket tournament we finished 5th.
We are very pleased with our achievements.
Thank you to everyone who took part in these activities. These proved really popular, particularly Cricket.
Chance to Shine Cricket
Across the year, all KS2 classes have been able to work with coach Andy from Cheshire Cricket board. These sessions have been beneficial to all pupils and many have gone on to join local cricket teams.
Sessions have developed from throwing and catching to batting, bowling and fielding. The children enjoyed playing games in these sessions and even played limited overs matches.
As a result, cricket is one of our most popular lunchtime activities.
Virtual Winter Games
Due to COVID 19 we have been unable to compete and follow our usual competition schedule or calendar of events. Working with our School Games Organizer and School Sports Coordinator we have been able to take part in a variety of competitive sports and challenges. These include basketball, boccia, football, hockey, netball and rugby. During PE sessions the children have had the opportunity to take part and practice the skills for each of these events. Scoring systems have been put in place and we have been able to submit our results.
We are really proud of our results (CLICK LINK TO SEE OUR RESULTS) and how we got on in each event.
Across our local area we have scored 1st place for Basketball, 2nd place for Rugby and Boccia. We are now representing our school and area in the Level 3 School Games event for basketball. This will be filmed and posted to celebrate our successes.
(Virtual) Sports Day
We know that both children and teachers really look forward to this day so we have adapted our events so you can participate from home. Please see the fact sheet for more information. You will have 5 attempts for each event (except the obstacle course) and ask an adult to help with keeping score. GOOD LUCK! Don't forget to check out our video made by year 1 showing you how to do each event.
