Over the last few years, we have been working with the Year 6 pupils to give them the opportunity to experience rowing. Warwickshire Sports Partnership organises a rowing tournament, inviting teams of 4 children to compete. There are separate boys and girls teams involved.
The school has used some of its Sports Premium funding to purchase a rowing machine, so more children can experience rowing. Now we are able to hold a competition for all the children in Year 6 annually, which is excellent. The children have really enjoyed taking part in this event.
The competition is supported by the enthusiasm of Mrs Tourtet, who organises the children in small groups over several afternoons. The children who row the greatest distance on the machine, in the set amount of time, are selected to compete as part of the school team in the Warwickshire Sports Partnership's Level 2 Competition.
