PE

"I've missed 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times I've been trusted to take the winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed" (Michael Jordan)

PE stands for Physical Education and is an important and valued part of our school curriculum. PE helps our children develop their physical fitness. As part of this they learn that it is highly important to include exercise and physical activity as part of their lifestyle. Likewise, they also learn how to stretch their physical capacities, enhance their stamina as well as strengthen their muscles.

PE also helps our children develop teamwork and sportsmanship.  Children are encouraged to display our 5 Core Values through their participation in sport.

We work closely with Xcite Sports and Fitness company. Please click on the link below to view their website,

Year 5/6 Swimming Gala - Wednesday 16th January 2019

Twelve children from Year 5/6 represented us in a Swimming Gala at Armthorpe Leisure Centre. The children swam against two other teams in our heat. There were three heats overall, which were all timed separately. This meant the children were competing against ten teams in total but wouldn't know where they finished in the race until the end. 

The competition was split into two parts: individual races and team races. The individual races were also split into: advanced and foundation. All foundation swimmers had to swim with a float so this made it a challenge for all the children. All the children swam amazingly. We had some firsts and seconds in our heat but we are not yet sure where the children finished overall in their individual races. 

Out of all eleven schools, we finished third and have qualified for the Doncaster Finals later in the year. Well done to all the children who represented the school. They were fantastic!

They had a fantastic time. It was a festival but they announced the top three teams in the scored events. One of our teams finished second overall - a great achievement. Well done to all who took part!

  • Long Jump
  • Speedbounce
  • Target Throw
  • Shot Put 

They also chose which races (if any) they would like to compete in:

  • Mixed Relays

This year, nearly all children competed in their class relays - making a close competition! It was a fantastic afternoon and provided a fitting end to our House Competitions for the year. The results for KS1/2 Sport's Afternoon were:
