Today some very lucky Y6s had a really treat – a behind the scenes look at how Hull FC operate at their Elite Performance Centre!
The aim of this trip was to further children’s experience of the demands of professional sport as they exit primary school and further their sporting interests. It was a thoroughly enjoyable morning and we would all like to give Richard Tate, Feka and the Hull FC Foundation a massive thank you! There are some photos below but more can be seen in our ebook here:
Our day began with a tour of the centre, starting with the common room where players relax.
Children had a good luck at the legacy board which names every player to ever play for the Black and Whites
Next we saw the kitchen and how players managed nutrition, training schedules and supplements – every player has a slightly different diet which is tailor made!
We then had a visit to the gym for circuit training
Next stop was the video review room where we were very lucky to have an exclusive Q&A session with Head Coach Lee Radford!
Then we went to the changing rooms were we found out players are find for not putting their boots away!
We also stopped by the physio room to learn about how players deal with injury and how to recover after training.
Before heading out onto the training field we went to the wrestling room where players practise their tackling technique (the girls were not happy with the smell!)
Before lunch we headed onto the training field with the community coaches
Finally it was time for lunch – which we ate in the presence of the Challenge Cup before heading back to school!
Our fantastic National School Sports Week continued this evening when our Rounders team attended the Hull Active Schools Rounders Championships and won!

We were very excited to launch our Fitbit challenge today at Christopher Pickering Primary School. We are a Tigers Trust partner school and the challenge has been funded by the Tigers Trust and The Premier League.
Each KS2 will be given a Fitbit to be worn in school, for a week. There will be a weekly leader board to show which class has completed the most steps. We are hoping this will encourage all KS2 classes to be active throughout the school day, as we are aware of the benefits of a healthy active day! Hopefully all classes will have fun encouraging the person wearing the Fitbit to get the steps in!!
Thanks again to The Tigers Trust!
A lovely start to our Sports Week at Christopher Pickering. We had our Black and white day, and all of the children came dressed in Black and White. Each child took part in a Hull FC coaching session, which was thoroughly enjoyed by all. We also had a fun assembly by Coach Rich and Sam, who explained how our school is similar to Hull FC! Some of even took part in an active challenge during our assembly. This all linked to Hull Schools Stand Up Event. Thanks to Hull FC for a fabulous day.
Thank you to Miss Farrah for taking our year 1/2 team to the Quad Kids Athletics competition at Costello. The children had a fabulous day.
As part of the school’s on going drive to provide pupils with exit points to a variety of sports outside of school, Y6 have had a fantastic day of gymnastics at Aspire Gymnastics club this morning.
They got to try out a variety of olympic standard equipment like bars, beams and sprung floor. They all had an amazing time and really worked hard on their gymnastic skills.
We are looking forward to seeing if anyone takes up gymnastic with Aspire soon.
