Sport and PE Overview

Spring Term 1

PE has been continuing to take place this term both in school and at home.  Today Snowy and Tawny Owls have had a go at some of the home PE challenge videos. 

I’ve had some amazing pictures and videos shared of you all taking part at home.

Brilliant keep up the good work!!!

This week in PE, Years 4,5 and 6 children added another 'string to their bow' by making use of the Archery equipment. The whole 'point' of the exercise was to improve their hand eye co-ordination and 'hitting their targets' with plenty of budding Robin Hood's and Maid Marian's on show!!!

Autumn Term 1 Update

As you will all no doubt appreciate, the world of sport has taken on a whole new face since March of this year.  However, with Covid-19, lockdown and all the events surrounding them, I think it can be said that the fitness and well-being of our children has never been more important.


 To this end, a full and active programme of sport and physical education has been devised for children throughout the year groups at West Monkton School over the Autumn Term.


 The KS2 Curriculum for Autumn 1 will place the focus on a drive to Get Fit, Get Active!  With the emphasis on circuits, cross-country (baseline), healthy living and teamwork.


 KS1 pupils will be given a re-introduction to fundamentals of PE, again with the aim to Get Fit, Get Active!, while Early Years children will receive a development introduction into PE.


 Active and competitive school sport may return after half term with outside sports being introduced from November.  These may initially involve football, tag rugby, handball and cross-country.  Of course, all this is subject to change with changing events of the world.


 Sports Day for the last school year was completed within class groups with the green team winning and Samuel and Holly receiving the trophy from Mr Blackmore and myself, at the last golden assembly of the year.



A Return To PE Kits

A quick reminder to parents that children must come equipped with full kit for PE lessons from Monday, September 14th.

Please note that PE kit comprises:

 Pair of trainers (daps should be avoided as the children are outside quite a lot).

  • Blue plain T-shirt (with or without logo).
  • PE shorts (plain - black or navy).
  • Tracksuit – warm tracksuit for the winter months.
  • PE hoodie (logo optional).
  • Long hair must be tied back for PE.

 Also, as it is planned to initially hold lessons outdoors in most weathers, please ensure a waterproof jacket is available.
