PE at Twiss Green
Our intent is to deliver an all-inclusive, child-centred curriculum to promote and develop physical literacy for all children, with the intention of all children becoming capable in fundamental movement skills, as well as a range of sporting activities. 
The Great Big Dance Off
On Monday 25th April, Mrs Durr, Mrs Maw and Mrs Pullen took 21 dancers to The Great Big Dance Off - a dance competition for Primary and Secondary Schools. After weeks of rehearsals, the children were ready to share their dance and we were all so excited! The competition was a really supportive event to be part of and it was great to cheer the other schools on and be encouraged ourselves. The dancers from Twiss Green were amazing and we were just so proud of them! Take a look at the gallery below to see us in action!

Football 
On Thursday 2nd February, Mrs Durr and Mrs Lea took a team of Year 5 & 6 children to Culcheth High School to play a match against Culcheth Primary School. The team played with grit and determination and a cracking goal by Lewis Clarke at the end of the match was a real highlight. Mrs Durr and Mrs Lea were so impressed with all of the footballers and can't wait for some more matches next half term! Well done to everyone involved!
 
Y5 & 6 Sportshall Athletics
On Thursday afternoon (27th January), our team of Year 5 & 6 athletes went to Culcheth High School to take part in the Sportshall Athletics Competition. They were all fantastic - they supported each other and they all tried their absolute best and we couldn't have been prouder watching them compete. The children did so well that they have made it through to the next round of the competition! Our team will be going to Birchwood High School on Tuesday 8th February 2022 to take part in the town finals. Good luck everyone and well done! We are so proud of you! Mrs Durr, Mrs Maw and Miss Roberts

Abbie and Isabella (Y6) are both members of the City of Salford Synchronised Swimming Club who have just won a silver medal at the Swim England Combo Cup!
 
Abbie and Isabella both train with the 12&under age group team and train 2 or 3 times a week working on technical skills, flexibility and routines.
 
Due to the pandemic, all competitions in 2021 took place virtually. Teams had to perform their routines at their home pool and film them to send to the panel of judges. These videos were then shown on a livestream and the results were announced. Abbie, Isabella and their teammates swam a ‘Wizard of Oz’ themed routine and their hard work was rewarded with a score of 51.8333 and they won the silver medal.
 
The team are now in training for the North West Championships which is taking place in Blackpool in February.
