We have had a very positive response to our sport ‘Boxing’ newly introduced this year. Some parents have commented that this is the first time their child has been interested in a sport Teachers have reported that girls have particularly taken to this and otherwise shy and less confident children have also embraced the sport. It has been a huge hit with our children with SEN.
What do the children think?
‘It’s amazing and has actually encouraged me to join a boxing club.’
Holly , year 6
‘It really brings up children’s confidence and independence. Most sports are team games but with boxing you can do it on your own even without equipment.’
Kiana. year 6
‘It teaches you co-ordination and self-defence. You can see progress each week as you learn different moves.’
Saskia, year 6
‘We didn’t have this in Australia – Here you have proper sports.’
Callum, year 5
‘It’s brilliant – It gives you confidence’
Daniel Gower, year 5
We are extremely happy with the success of boxing and it will be interesting to see how many children join the after school club in the summer term.
