Sport at Newton Poppleford

Hello Newton Poppleford community,

I thought I would update this page with a very exciting start to our first term back after summer. On Monday the 17th of October some of our very talented year 3's and 4's are going to be representing Newton Poppleford Primary School in our  Cross-country Trials.

These are being held at 4pm at Sidbury Rugby Club and we are competing alongside some local schools such as Sidbury and Sidmouth.

I am sure all of our fabulous students will do exceptionally well and I look forward to cheering them along on Monday. Let’s pray for no rain!

On a second note, I am sure some children have come home recently and told you that they have been participating in some 'urban sports' at school- Street Surfing and Ultimate Frisbee being the sports that were tried and tested. We had a company called, Go Active come in and deliver these sessions to KS1 and KS2 and the feedback we had from the children was extremely positive.

So, we listened and decided to bring Go Active back as an After School Club. Now your children can participate in some urban sports like, street surfing, ultimate Frisbee, multi sports, bubble football and many more every Wednesday after school starting from the 9th of November.

Letters will be sent out on Monday regarding the club. We hope to see as many as possible having lots of fun in this new and exciting after school club.

Thank You
Miss Mcgurk
