Each term, we hold intra-school competitions in both KS1 and KS2. Pupils from each year group compete against each other in their House Teams. They take part in a different competitive sport each term, such as Dodge Ball, hockey, football, Bench Ball.
In the summer term, we hold our competitive Sports Day, to which parents, family and friends are invited to watch and cheer!
Pupils across the school are given opportunities to take part in interschool sporting events over the year. We try to ensure that each year group has at least one opportunity to participate each year, with older pupils having a number of events each term.
Sporting events include cross country, kurling, indoor athletics, track and field athletics, football, high 5, Tag Rugby, orienteering, cricket and triathlon.
Staff give generously of their time to ensure that our pupils can take part in as many events over the year as possible, and we display our trophies, with pride, in school! We are always grateful to parents who help with transport and stay to cheer on Team Messingham!
This term, North Lincolnshire School Sport visited Messingham Primary School to educate pupils about how to lead a healthy lifestyle through their 'A Healthy Me' project. The ladies have visited all the classes over the last two weeks of term to discuss healthy packed lunches.
Pupils were taught what foods are healthy by grouping foods by a traffic light system. They were then set the task of using these foods to create a healthy packed lunch example. Children were really engaged in this and each class had some great discussions about food.
We also now have Healthy Me ambassadors in each class that have been trained to support children be active and promote healthy lifestyles.
We encourage you to support your child by providing them with a healthy packed lunch and discussing healthy food at home.
