The whole of St. Joseph's participated in an Intra School competition on Thursday 30th March. We took part in a pentathlon in the hall and worked in our house teams to earn points. The scores will be published on Monday after the winning house is announced after Collective Worship. The Y5 Sports Leaders also chose 6 children from every class who displayed the School Games Values: Passion, Teamwork, Determination, Respect, Honesty and Self-Belief. Those children will be notified on Monday in the assembly and they will receive individual stickers and a certificate. It was a brilliant day where the children challenged themselves and had great fun. Well done, St. Joseph's!
Before St. Joseph's staff began teaching the new PE curriculum, children's views on PE were collected through a questionnaire. Please click on the link to read both the findings and the report.
We address how we are promoting an enjoyment of physical activity that will increase the chances of being active for life and help our children gain improved physical literacy skills that can be used in all sports.
Here is a link to the REAL PE website should you wish to learn more about this exciting and well researched approach to PE.
Report written by our Sports Ambassadors in Year 6: Orlaith D and Louis T
On Tuesday 8th November, every class took part in the cross country run. Year 6's ran with Reception and Year 1 to encourage them as this was their first cross country.
Students from St John Fisher came to support and encourage us in the race. At the end, everyone was tired but enjoyed the afternoon.
We hope that after this experience we will have helped the little ones run more.
Look on each individual class page for photos.
