Be the Best You Can Be

Sporting and Other Enrichment Events

 

We are a very active school! 

Over the course of the year, our children have the opportunity to practice and train for a number of different sports with our PE team.

We regularly hold in-school tournaments where children compete against one another, and we also attend other local sports tournaments / festivals with other schools throughout the year. 

These include mixed soccer, tag rugby, sports hall athletics, cross country races, Tri-golf, Quickstix hockey, Kwik cricket, tennis, archery, basketball, and quad kids (mixed athletics). 

We also hold an annual School Games Day, as well as our traditional school sports day where children get the chance to participate both as part of a team and also individually. 

We also host a number of after-school sports clubs including table tennis, gymnastics, basketball and soccer. 

Our active lunchtimes include organised playground games, and also the chance to take part in different personal sporting challenges from time to time.

Lunchtime cross-country training

Children in years 3, 4, 5 and 5 are invited to take part in our cross-country and athletics training on Thursday and Friday lunchtimes, to prepare for competitions and events which are due to take place next term. Please ensure that children have outdoor PE kit and trainers (or ideally, football boots) to take part in this, as our field can get a little muddy at this time of year!

Challenge of the Month

Over 35 children took part in our most recent monthly lunchtime challenge. This month's theme was tennis, with children hitting the ball against a wall as many times as possible, with only 1 bounce allowed between shots. It was great to see so many children beating their own personal best score as the month went on.
