PE, School Sport and Physical Activity update – October

We have have been very busy in school this month for all things PE, School Sport and Physical Activity.

Physical Education

Early Years – we have been very busy working on a variety of core skills including climbing, jumping, running, walking, balancing, throwing and catching.

Years 1 and 2 have spent the past few weeks exploring a Health and Wellbeing unit which incorporates Agility, Balance and Co-Ordination. We have thought about how our bodies feel when we exercise, the muscles we are using and which sports might require us to use these ABC’s in the future.

Years 3-6 have been busy working on their Tag Rugby skills in the last three weeks looking at both the defending and attacking aspects of the game as well as developing our ball carrying, passing and tagging skills. We will be combining these skills next week (18th October) to participate in our Intra-House matches.

School Sport

Tag Rugby

Two teams from Year 4 and two teams from Year 6 participated in the North Herts Sports Partnership Tag Rugby Festival at Letchworth Rugby club at the end of September/start of October. Miss Clapp and I were very impressed with how you performed against other schools and we were equally as proud with your teamwork, sportsmanship and the respect you showed to other players and the referees. A special thank you to Miss Bernstein who accompanied us to both days of Rugby!

Rapid Fire Cricket

We were delighted to be asked to host a Hitchin schools Year 4 Rapid Fire Cricket event earlier on in the month. We had two teams entered & they showed a lot of teamwork, effort and determination. A huge thank you must go to some of our Year 6 sports leaders who gave up their time afterschool to help officiate & score the event.


We have had four teams play fixtures at Wilshere Dacre this month. Our Reds and Blues were the first to make the short journey and both teams played some fantastic football. The Blues came away 5-1 winners and the Reds were also victorious winning their game 8-1.

We then had two girls teams play their Wilshere Dacre counterparts shortly after. For some girls it was their first ever football match and I was very proud of their performance and the way they put their skills and knowledge into action. Our Red and White team won 4-0 and the Red and Black team drew a thrilling game 4-4!

There is a fixture before half term against St.Ippolyts before we play similar back to back fixtures against Whitehill after half term.


We had 28 girls travel to St.Francis School on Tuesday (12th October) with four teams in action! All of the games were played in very good spirits with some great Netball on display. The games weren’t officially scored so there aren’t any results to report however we scored some brilliant goals and again for lots of children it was their first ever match!

There are two netball fixtures against Ickelford here at school before half term.

Representing the School 

We have had 95 different children represent the school so far this half term in a sporting event or fixture with more fixtures/events to come next week. I have been really delighted with the attitude, effort and commitment of all of our children who have represented the school so far and I look forward to more children having the opportunity to represent the school in the coming weeks. Well done everyone you are a huge credit to our school!

Sports Committee

We have been able to restart our Sports Committee this year and so far we have a total of 27 members. The children have been working incredibly hard to prepare activities for some of our KS1 children as well as providing valuable ideas and suggestions for ways we can develop PESSPA at school.

Well done to all of our children this half term and thank you for making it such an enjoyable one!
