The activities your child will take part in will include dance, games, gymnastics, athletics, orienteering and swimming in Year 4 and 5.
Children will take part in a range of activities throughout the year and work towards improving their fundamental skills such as balance, coordination, speed and agility.

Sport Premium Funding
Government departments have provided every primary school with funding to develop P.E, Sport and Health.
In our school, we are using some of this funding to work in partnership with Legacy Sport CIC. We have also become members of the Youth Sport Trust. Together we aim to:
- increase the amount of competitive sport in which our children participate;
- develop links to community sports clubs and providers;
- promote leadership skills through sport and provide pathways for both talented children and those with special needs in sports and
- encourage maximum participation in physical activity and deliver health programmes to improve the wellbeing of our children.
Qualified P.E instructors and sports coaches will work alongside class teachers and regular training will be provided for school staff. Subsequently our children will have the chance to learn new skills whilst teachers will learn new techniques to enhance their teaching of P.E and sport.
Our long term aim is higher quality P.E and improved learning for children at our school.
