Well done to all the pupils in a brilliant Star Jump Challenge...
Well done to all the pupils from Reception through to Year 6 who took part in the Star jump Challenge. We had some fantastic performances. Thank you so much for all your support to help raise much needed funds for new books.  Please ensure all sponsor money is now collected and returned to school by Friday 8th January.  We will announce our competition results early next term.

Star Jump Christmas Challenge gets off to a flying start….

The Christmas Star Jump Challenge has begun and the pupils who have already taken part have recorded some fantastic jumps. Pupils across the school will continue to take part at the beginning of their PE lessons throughout the week and next week when the Year 4’s return they will also have the opportunity to take part in the challenge. We hope to raise as much money as we can for new reading books for the new Discovery Centre. Well done to all our pupils for their brilliant efforts and thank you to everyone who is supporting our fundraising Christmas Star Jump Challenge. 

Star Jump Christmas Challenge- Week of Monday 7th December

As we enter the month of December, usually we would be organising our Christmas fair which is one of our big school fundraisers of the year. Unfortunately this year we're unable to do that so instead we've decided to do a Christmas Sponsored Star Jumps challenge during PE lessons starting next week. The aim is for pupils to be given the opportunity to see how many star jumps they can complete in a minute!

 

All the money raised will go towards purchasing books for the new Discovery Centre. Prizes will be awarded for the highest number of jumps and highest amount raised per individual in each year group.

 

All the child will need to do is complete the sponsorship form that went out in the newsletter and return the form to school on Monday 7th December, it will be photocopied and the number of jumps recorded. Once the child goes home with their confirmed number of jumps achieved, the donation would be collected and sent to school with the form or parents can pay the amount via the ParentPay account, pupils will return their sponsorship form to their class teacher. All forms and monies should be returned by Friday 8th January.

 

Here is a short video explaining about the Christmas Star Jump challenge next week.

PHYSICAL EDUCATION (November 2020)

This term pupils will be taking part in a number of virtual sports events being run within school. So far we have taken part in a Tennis skills challenge and this week pupils will be doing the Run4life challenge in conjunction with the TWKSSP. All pupils will have the opportunity to run a mile and the top 10 boys and girls 'timed' performances will be put forward to the TWKSSP and compared with pupils times from other primary schools in the Tunbridge Wells district with medals to the 3 fastest time in the district in each year group. 

In core PE, we continue with a range of activities including Yoga, Multi Skills fitness, Ultimate Frisbee, Handball. 

 

PHYSICAL EDUCATION  (October 2020)

As we return after half term we enter a busy time for PE. Last term pupils focused on a range of activities from 'Problem Solving' and 'Outdoor Adventurous Activities' to 'Athletics', 'Relay Running' and more recently 'Dodgeball'. Pupils have been thoroughly engaged in these sports and have enjoyed the different components of fitness and skill that each sport provides. Many of the classes have been using the 'Active Mile' course as part of their lesson as well as for warm ups.

 

The 'Active Mile' itself continues to provide the pupils with an opportunity to improve their fitness, develop their strength whilst enjoying the social and competitive side of sport. Most importantly, what I've noticed is the smiles and the excitement that I see when the pupils are engaging in all the different sports.  

 

For the 1/2 term I've put together some links to local walks, cycling routes and runs that pupils can do safely with their families. These can be found on the remote learning site under 'Physical Education' but I've also included some of my favourites routes below. These are mix of routes that can be done from both the front door and travelling by car. 

My Favourite Local Walks/ Cycles and Runs (By Foot and Car):

 

Groombridge Trails- Park at the football fields car park and walk, cycle or run the old railway trails.

Bedgebury Pinetum(Forest)- Multiple walks, hire bikes with different length trails.

Bewl Water- 13 Miles Walk- Approximately 6 hour walk.

Cuckoo Trail- Park in Heathfield (opposite Waitrose)- Cycle to Eastbourne along tarmac path and trails.

Broadwater Warren- Park in various car park and can walk across to Harrisons Rocks.

Harrisons Rocks- Park in main pay car park.

Southborough Common- Walk through the woods with various trails.

Ridgeway Fields and behind- Walk down to Viaduct and through wood paths to High Brooms. 

Bidborough Ridge- Follow steep footpath off the ridge that takes you down to Hayesden Country Park.

Kingdom at Penshurst- Cycling park and walking trails. Free parking and lovely café. Great for brunch after!

PHYSICAL EDUCATION  AND THE ACTIVE MILE ( September 2020)

As we return to school in September the focus this year has been around improving our pupils Health and Fitness during PE Lessons. To do this successfully, we've focused on providing 2 hours of high quality PE  to every class both using a specialist PE teacher and our external provider Sprint PE and Sport.  We want pupils to enjoy their PE by both taking part and being competitive whilst improving their Fitness and Wellbeing through the Sports. 

 

The pictures below show the 'Active Mile' course that we've built around the edge of the school fields to allow all pupils to complete a 15 minute run at their own pace in trainers on their designated day within their year bubble. 

All the pupils have been running the Active Mile over the last month and we've really started to notice the improvement in our pupils fitness. We've also had some really impressive Active Mile times with Billy in year 5 running a brilliant 6mins 29 seconds and Bella in year 3 running 8mins 02 seconds whilst Edward in year 3 ran 7mins and 04 seconds last week. Pupils can hear their lap times as they run around as the specialist PE teacher communicates lap times to pupils as they complete a lap.
