All children take part in PE lessons each week, with the focus being Games, Gymnastics and Dance. In Dance the focus is on the children developing the skills needed to be able to create and combine a series of movements that, when performed together, create a dance sequence. The focus in our Gymnastics lessons is more about the children developing their balance and co -ordination skills using a variety of equipment, music and floor work. Games is an area where the children can focus on their agility and inter personal skills, all of which are an important part of team games.
During break times in both KS1 and KS2 playgrounds, we provide competitive games for the children to play which helps them to achieve both personal and team goals. During this time children are encouraged to learn and develop basic skills of catching, throwing, skipping, climbing and hopping by using a variety of equipment supported by our enthusiastic lunchtime staff.
There are a number of competitions and tournaments which the schools takes part in on a regular basis including tag rugby, Hi 5 netball, quick cricket, football, tennis, table tennis, athletics and hockey. Our after-school clubs also provide a range of physical activities such as gymnastics, dodge-ball, football, dance, table-tennis and Olympics.
Our Sports Day is held once a year and has become a great event! The whole school have houses and children compete tirelessly to achieve as many points for their house as possible. Don’t miss the parent’s race at the end of the day, as well as the music and awards ceremony!
