Sport & PE


In term one we have been developing core football skills with Years 3, 5 and 6 for the first 5 weeks, we then moved onto tag rugby.  On weather disrupted days we have also played ball games (gaga ball and dodgeball in the Hall) to improve catching, throwing and general movement.


Lunch Time Activities and Sports Clubs

Lunchtimes have seen the introduction on table tennis for KS2 classes and the team game rocket ball for KS1 classes.

Congratulations to Alban House for winning the Girls KS2 Football Tournament by beating Becket House 2-1 in a very close final at the end of last term.  Huge thanks go to all our House Captains who organised their teams and managed them at both the Semi Final and Final.


After School Sports Clubs

Our after school clubs are well attended, but there is always room for more to join.  Please see me in school if you would like a taster voucher to try out one of the clubs.  We have a new Football Club on Mondays (Years 2-6), KS1 Gymnastics (Reception to Year 2) on Wednesday and KS2 Gymnastics on Friday (Years 3 to 6).  All our footballers and gymnasts have been tested for their Multi Sports and British Gymnastics Awards.  Congratulations to James Bignell who achieved his Level One Gymnastics Award this term!


Pacesetter Sports Events

We also entered the Pacesetter Games on Friday mornings – Years 1/2 won the Boys' Football and Years 5/6 came 3rd in their Football Tournament.  We look forward to further success in Term 2 where we are entering Dodgeball and Tag Rugby Tournaments for various year groups.
