Improved Hobbies Programme Launched
The Summer Term is well and truly upon us. It started with a bang, as our newly-improved hobbies programme was introduced, offering pupils access to variety of vibrant activities and events.
This term means we are now able to go out and make the most of the lovely weather. Whether it’s sketching under the leafy North Field trees or working hard in Specialist Art and DT, the sun always makes life (and work!) that little bit easier.
Athletics hobbies have been hugely popular so far with over 30 pupils attending both sessions. Along with the King’s Loop and the active and healthy lifestyle we promote, more and more children are finding new ways to get outside and get involved. Our squad swimmers have also been working tirelessly all year, and we have close to 20 swimmers currently involved in the programme at King’s College. They recently had success in the Four Schools Gala and have received only positive feedback from the older swimmers.
Colts cricket is in full swing on Tuesdays, with both girls and boys working hard in the field (and nets!), ready for this term’s fixtures. Girls’ cricket sees plenty more fixtures this term too, which is certainly a step in the right direction.
Meanwhile, Wednesdays brings a new excitement as we launch a brand new hobby – water polo! This is for Years 3-8 and will no doubt be a popular activity for many. On Thursdays, basketball has been taking place in the Sports Hall for Years 7 and 8. This has again been a much anticipated hobby, and is very popular with the boarders. The sport is led by Mr Hayden, who brings incredible knowledge and enthusiasm to the session.
If you venture into the woods, you’ll find the Pyrland Pioneers running about through the furrows and mounds. This is another amazing experience and allows the children to explore and create their own adventures. However, we must be careful, for on a Friday arrows take to the skyin the ultimate game of skill – archery. To read more about our Hobbies Programme, please click here.
