Progressive Sports @ St Giles School

It is the first week of the holidays and St Giles School is still open. Progressive Sports have taken over the building (and the sports field and the playground)!

In readiness for the Olympics, Progressive Sports spent the day with the children of St Giles School, in the last week of term, getting them in the Olympic mood. There was an introduction about this year’s Olympics in Rio and the 2012 London Olympics, with a very inspirational video.

All the children took part in an Olympic Triathalon - Archery, Weight Lifting and Hockey. As usual they brought with them a set of Values for the day which were Respect, Excellence and Friendship. Each session started with a warm up which was Samba Dancing. It was also noted that some of the staff enjoyed the warm up outside in the sunshine.

Progressive Sports has a simple ethos of providing parents, schools and communities with expert sports provision for their children. If you are always scratching around for ideas of how to entertain the children during the school holidays, then look no further, as Progressive Sports offers Multi-Sport Fun Weeks, Dance and Gymnastics Courses throughout the year, which promise to keep the children well entertained. Progressive Sport also teaches PE to the children at St Giles in term time and has helped the children explore all that sport has to offer and develop PE in school with a range of over 10 services.

There are lots of things going on this week at St Giles School with Progressive Sports – Football. Hockey, Cricket, Basket Ball, Netball, Rounders, Rugby. Parkwall, Archery, Fencing, Dodgeball, Handball, Gymnastics, Dance and Team Games.

The children are really enjoying the start of the holiday and seem totally immersed in the activities they have been doing.

Adam, from Progressive Sports, said, “The children are active all day and it’s great value for money. They make lots of new friends while they are here. Always on the go come rain or shine in a safe environment set in fantastic grounds. The children are given certificates and prizes and Star of the Day is awarded to the children who have been helpful throughout that day”.

The sessions are always popular and this week there are, on average, 35 children attending each day. The sessions start at 8.30am and finish at 5.30pm. They still have places available for the weeks starting 8th August and 15th August so if you’re interested and would like more details click here.

Keeping children occupied over the holiday is something St Giles School Matlock understands so we have put together a 6 week course of activities for you to enjoy over the summer holidays. We have incorporated 6 of our favourite things we do at School (and it's not maths or literacy!) The online 6 weeks challenge is for all children of Primary school age to get involved in, it’s free and there is something of interest for everyone. At St Giles, we have a wide range of different activities our children enjoy every week at school, as the children enjoy these activities so much we have set a challenge for them and the whole community to enjoy. These include, Forest Craft, Code Club, Multi Sports, Music, Cooking and Science. So join in the fun and have a great holiday! Start here
