P.E.

At St Thomas’ we believe in the value and importance of Physical Education for all. The whole staff are committed to continuous improvement of our PE and Sport provision, maintaining our good practice and offering high quality Physical Education in a totally inclusive environment.

 

The PE curriculum at St Thomas’ develops children’s knowledge, skills and understanding so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities.  PE promotes an understanding in children of their bodies in action, involving thoughtful selection and applying of skills whilst encouraging positive attitudes towards maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Through our curriculum we enable children to make informed choices about continuing to be physically active throughout their lives.

Sports day was a fantastic day! The sun shone, we had lots of support and the children had a great time. Thank you to all the parents that came to support the children, and to those adults who raced (in a very competitive manner!).
INTER-SCHOOL COMPETITIONS

Sportshall Athletics

Sportshall Athletics 1
Sportshall Athletics 2
Sportshall Athletics 3

Year 6 Sports Leaders organised a fantastic afternoon of Athletics for Year 1 and Year 2.

 

This has been taken from a report written by our Sports Leaders who evaluated the success of the afternoon!

 

'We found that it was tricky for us because the younger  pupils found it difficult to listen to our instructions. Mekha was in charge of collecting and adding up the scores, while Kacper was in charge of blowing the whistle to indicate the change of activities.'

 

 

Deanery Football/Netball Tournament

All children from Year 6 had the opportunity to represent the school at a Deanery Schools Football and Netball Competition. Both teams made it to the semi-final and we are incredibly proud of their achievements. Star Players were selected from each team and awarded certificates in Golden Assembly. Photographs of the competition can be seen on our PE display board!

INTRA-SCHOOL COMPETITIONS

Year 3 inter-house Bench Ball Competition

 

On the 9th February, the House Captains and the Sports Leaders organised and ran an inter-house bench ball competition for Year 3. The matches were very close and they all enjoyed the experience and played very well.

 

The winning house was St Thomas’… but everyone was a winner because they played so well.

The children learn how to warm up their bodies properly before they begin. They learn in small groups to plan and rehearse short routines using simple movements.

Look at the photos of us stretching!
