Hinchingbrooke School Year 6 Transition Sports Festival

Former Paralympian Kate Grey opened this year’s Year 6 Sports Festival, inspiring pupils to “never say I can’t”. Kate talked of how she overcame personal challenges to become an elite swimmer and go on to represent GB  in international competition for 10 years, during which time she competed in the 2008 Beijing Paralympic Games.

The Hinchingbrooke Music department provided 4 bands to perform at the event creating a fantastic atmosphere enjoyed by all.

During the festival 305 year 6 pupils enjoyed taking part in a carousel of activities delivered by the Hinchingbrooke School P.E. department and 90 trained sports leaders. The sports Leaders were encouraging and supported year 6 pupils to improve their skills across a range of activities such as Tag Rugby, Netball and Quick Sticks Hockey.

Primary pupils met new friends whilst working in the tutor groups they will join on their transfer to Hinchingbrooke School in September.

An Inclusion zone showcased sports which can be delivered to include all young people and year 6 class teachers had an opportunity to try out their skills in these.
