Sports Events 2018-2019

Here are some of the things we have been up to within PE and sport this year- mostly written by our Sports Ambassadors. You can read about what we've been up on our home page.


The year 5/6 pupils had a fantastic time at the Orienteering competition, which was held at Donisthorpe Woodlands last week. 730 children took part in total from 31 schools from the local area. We were really pleased with how well we did, achieving second in the top team award. Gabriel & Jonty came second and Georgie & Olivia came third in the top pair event also.


Within our PE lessons, we have been working on our long and short distance running, our standing long jump and our throwing skills. We all improved and entered our scores into the Quadkids competition. Unfortunately we didn't make the final, but we had fun improving our own skills.

February 2019

We've had a busy week this week, with three nights of gymnastics. We all worked really hard, practising at school in our spare time to try and improve our techniques and learn the routines. It was nice to be competing on our own but with the support of our team. We all did really well and confidently performed our routines. The year 2 team did brilliantly; coming third on their night.

Jan 2019

Last week, all the classes in school had a mini-sports day to start a jam-packed half term led by our PE teacher Miss Jones. The scores were very close, with the spirit of the games award going to the Green team. We all tried hard and had an excellent day.

Autumn term

In our autumn term 2018, we enjoyed various sports in P.E such as Tag Rugby, dodgeball and basketball. These sports taught us sportsmanship, teamwork and leadership.


Class 1 took part in a Christmas Festival, led by coaches from the NWLSSP. This included a trip to the North Pole!


We did a dodgeball competition at King Edwards. Despite coming last in our group, we still put lots of effort and team spirit in it. Thank you to Miss Jones, our sports coach, for teaching us the skills to be good at dodgeball.
