Another fun-filled and exciting term in PE at Cirencester Deer Park School!
Depending on the Physical Education class they are in, during November and December 2021 our pupils have developed skills and techniques related to Netball, Football, Hockey, Trampolining, Health Related Fitness, Badminton, Gymnastics, Basketball or Rugby. It has been great to see so many highly motivated and enthusiastic pupils wanting to learn and develop!
We have offered a range of extracurricular activities. Boys have had the opportunity to attend Rugby, Badminton, Cross Country and Basketball clubs. For the girls we have offered Netball, Cross Country and Badminton clubs. Training numbers have been admirable, especially in Key Stage 3. This has been extended through school fixtures for Netball, Rugby, Cross Country and Basketball. Pupils have clearly enjoyed being able to take part in the fixtures and our teams and individuals have developed well and progressed their tactical and strategical understanding of sport through these experiences.
Congratulations to our pupils who qualified and successfully ran in the County Cross Country Final in Newent on 5 December 2021: Sulu (Year 7) 23rd, Max (Year 9) 30th, James (Year 10) 12th, Reuben (Year 10) 21st and Beth (Year 11)14th.
On Tuesday 9 November 2021 we held the first of our Key Stage 3 Inter Tutor Competitions for Rugby and Netball which was well attended by all year groups, highly competitive and fun!

Our Year 10 Games Captains have helped staff run our Key Stage 3 clubs and have officiated at Basketball and Netball fixtures. They have been superb! Our Year 11 Young Sports Leaders have been amazing this term. They led primary sport events related to tag rugby and indoor athletics. Pupils initially completed training sessions, followed by their leading in these events. Local primary schools involved included Stratton, Powell’s, Sapperton, Siddington and Kemble.
At the end of this term we have also been inspiring our pupils with the BBC Sports Personality of the Year. We have run Twitter polls on @CDPSsport so pupils can select their winner and had a display board offering an overview of each performer who has been nominated.
In January 2022 we will be focusing on (boys) Football, (girls) Hockey and Badminton. More information about our extracurricular clubs will be shares with pupils in tutor time and in the parents' newsletter in the new year.
