Welcome to Boothville Primary Sports Blog
We believe that it is important for children to take part in a range of both competitive and non-competitive sports and for everyone to be able to achieve their own personal goals. Through competition and challenge we want pupils to be able to celebrate the occasions when they are successful, whilst realising that teamwork and fair play has a key role to play in not only the sporting world but also their own lives.
Children are encouraged to take part in extracurricular sessions, Sports Leader lead games, kids marathon, school house competitions or sports clubs. Before and after school sports clubs run every day and are led by sports coaches, where we encourage and support children to become involved. As well as these opportunities, Boothville take part in competitions and Festivals against other schools in the local area. This allows the children the opportunity to put skills learnt during lessons or at our after-school clubs into practise and also gives them the opportunity to make links with outside clubs in the local area.
We work closely with Nsport , Northampton Saints, Northampton Steelbacks, M.A.B Academy Gymnastics and Pacesetters to allow our children to develop skills in individual sports and pathways to clubs outside of school.

Our Year 6 children had the wonderful opportunity to experience the thrill of trampolining and were even treated to an awe inspiring demonstration. Other activities included archery and a range of circus skills such as juggling, stilt walking, diabolo and plate spinning! The children had a thoroughly enjoyable day at the Northamptonshire Trampoline Gymnastics Academy (NTGA) and were a credit to our school both in terms of their exemplary behaviour and willingness to participate.

On Thursday 23rd March, 30 Year 4 children had an amazing time at Northampton Academy while taking part in a Multi-sports festival. The children practised and developed their skills in cricket, rugby, handball and team building skills. They were fabulous representatives of our school and showed great respect, ambition, courage and resilience to the play leaders who were in charge of organising the event.
