Sheerness West Federation

Every year at SWF we offer our children a number of opportunities to represent our schools in a range of competitions. We take part in a number of Inter-School, School Games Competitions across our calendar year, as well as our SWF varsity competitions.

Our Inter-School competitions are where a number of schools from Sheppey and Sittingbourne compete against each other for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. If these competitions are also part of the School Games Events the winning school will get to go to the county finals to represent our area.

Our SWF varsity fixtures are events which are run with-in our schools. We are lucky enough to have two schools (West Minster and Rose Street) making up the Sheerness West Federation. Each term teams are selected to represent each school and take part in a competition against each other. The winning school then gets to keep the varsity shield for the following term until the next event. We have run this for the last two years. The first year West Minster ran out the overall winners while last year Rose Street came out on top. We are looking forward to seeing who wins this year!

Unfortunately at the current time with schools reopening and making sure we keep the children safe there will be no inter and intra school competitions until further notice. We are hoping that if things go to plan and we continue to see COVID cases remain low and it is safe to do so that we will be back taking part in competitions soon!

Virtual Challenges

Each term we run two virtual challenges within school. Every child is given the opportunity to take part in these challenges and then the top 5 scores from KS1 and KS2 make it onto our leader board in the hall.

This term our challenges are;

How many step-ups can you do in 30 seconds? 

How many tennis taps can you do before you drop the ball?

Home Challenge

This year we are introducing a new ‘home challenge’. Each term the PE team will set a little challenge for you to do at home with your family to earn yourself some dojo points. It is also a good way to stay fit at home which this year is more important than ever.

This term your home challenge is;

To balance the strangest thing somewhere on your body or to perform a balance in the strangest place. 

We look forward to seeing how you get on! Remember to post your pictures of videos onto dojo so that we can see.
