The Science of Being Healthy and Active Festival 2018!
For the second year running, we have held a two week festival of activities with the aim of helping our children and school community to become more active (and healthier) as well as developing our science enquiry skills.
Thanks to the brilliant weather, our sports' days went ahead without a hitch as did all of our activities during an action-packed ten days of activities. Highlights include the visit of gymnastics Olympian and multiple championship medallist, Kristian Thomas (what an inspirational morning!). We've participated in Judo, Capoeira, Aikido, Yoga and lots of other activities. Our 'Skip2BFit' workshops created skipping mania in our playgrounds as children (and adults) went skipping crazy! All classes participated in 'Daily Mile's' around Delves Common and The Tiger Playing field.
Many thanks to Wayne from WM Judo, Sam the Maestra capoeiraista from Birmingham's Brazilian Centre of Culture, Kristian Thomas, Walsall MBC's Outdoor Spaces team (for the trampolines), Mr Peckett (senior!), Miss Dakar and David from 'Skip2BFit'.
Sports Day 13th July 2018.
The sun shone and the athletics flourished! What an enjoyable afternoon down on the Tiger Playing Field! Well done to everyone who took part.
Y6 Sprints Finals.
These races were stacked as they say in athletics circles.
Football Match Report v Walsall Wood.
Delves 6 - Walsall Wood 1.
Under a blazing sun, our team finished their league fixtures on fire!
We have produced a number of good team performances but we left the best to last this season!
Cameron made a boys' own hero debut that Roy of the Rovers would be envious of - scoring five goals including bullet like shots that left the visiting goalkeeper with no chance to save. There were lots of great performances across the pitch for Delves, well done team for a fine performance. Thank you also to Mr Sumner for all of his support this year.
Year 5/6 Girls Flag Bearers at Walsall FC.
On Saturday 14th April, ten of our Y5/6 girls were flag bearers greeting the two teams (Walsall FC v AFC Wimbledon) on to the pitch before an important EFL League One game. The girls were at the ground from 11am. They participated in a football coaching session on the club's training facility and, along with their families, had tickets to watch the game. The sun shone and everyone had a fantastic day!
