What is the Primary School Sport & PE Funding?
Each year schools are given funding to develop sport and PE provision in schools. Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles.
Our action plan identifies how we intend to use of allocated funding for the coming year.
Three teams of children participated in a Football Competition at Wellstead Primary playing against other Year 2 children. They demonstrated good skills and collaborated well in their teams. Many goals were scored and one of our teams made it to the final. Well done!
Two teams of excited Year 2 children took part in a Hockey Festival at Wyvern with other Year 2 pupils from local schools. They played enthusiastically, collaborating in their teams, and cheering each other on too. We are pleased to announce they came joint second from nine teams playing. They thoroughly enjoyed this fun experience and we are very proud of them. Thank you to PH Sports who helped lead the event.
Ten Year 2 children took part in a Gymnastic Festival at Fair Oak Infant School alongside children from other local schools. Each school performed a Key Steps routine which they had learned during curriculum time. Then they participated in a variety of jumping, balancing and travelling activities. The event was led by Supernova Gymnastics who run an after school club at our school every Tuesday. The children excelled themselves and we are very proud of them.
Ten Year 2 children travelled to Ageas Bowl in West End to participate in a Cricket Festival. Other Year 2 children from local schools attended as well and they all joined in practising throwing, catching and batting skills in a fun game format. The event was hosted by the cricket coaches from Ageas Bowl and the children were very lucky to use the actual pitch! The children collaborated superbly and achieved a great result winning their match. Well done!
Eight Year 2 children participated in an inter-school Tennis Festival at Bishops Waltham Tennis Courts playing with children from other local schools. As well as demonstrating great tennis skills, it was lovely to see them make new friends and showing great respect by keeping score together and shaking hands at the end of each match. We are pleased to announce Fair Oak won the competition overall. Well done!
Twenty four children from Year 2 participated in a country dancing Ceilidh at Bishops Waltham. They performed exceptionally well. They danced 6 dances which they had already learned during curriculum time and even learned a new dance. They enjoyed dancing to a live band and it was great to watch other dancers from local schools including some Morris Dancing. A great afternoon!
Ten children took part in a Year 2 cross country race at Botley Recreation ground running against children from local schools. All the children ran extremely well running a total of 1.1km. They persevered and we are very proud of them. Well done!
