Sport at St Michael’s
National Curriculum PE
All teachers deliver the PE national curriculum to their class, as well as regular classroom-based HITT sessions through the Fitter Future Scheme. Access to this scheme is available to children from home, to encourage a healthy lifestyle outside of school.
They are supported by our PE subject leader, Mrs Benbow, who was a specialist PE teacher before becoming a primary school teacher.
Children in Years 1-6 have an additional PE lesson each week taught by the school’s PE coach, Chris Colman.
Enriching the PE curriculum
This year we have planned a whole school sporting event each half term, to encourage enjoyment and competition and to develop a range of different skills. (See Curriculum – Curriculum Enrichment)
Examples of whole school activities in the autumn term include: aerobics, cross country, physical challenge (such as sit ups, long jump etc), marathon (completing 26 activities 26 times).
Further events are planned for the spring and summer terms, details of which will be made available after Christmas.
2 events per term are ‘house’ events, to give the children the opportunity to be competitive.
In recent months St Michael’s has taken part in the following activities in the local area: tag rugby, small schools’ football tournament, tri golf, hockey, district sports, inter-school netball
We currently run the following sporting clubs: tennis (Reception and Year 1 only), multi sports, dodgeball, football. Additional clubs are planned for the spring and summer terms.
In assembly every Friday we celebrate any ‘out of school’ achievements, such as awards for gymnastics, swimming, archery, rugby, football, martial arts
