PE

Physical Education is a very important part of the curriculum at Stanford Junior and Infants School. Children are encouraged to respond to the challenges to mind and body, to compete and to co-operate with others. At Stanford Junior and Infants School we aim to use sport as a means to build character, embed values of fairness and respect, and give all children the opportunities they need to be fit and healthy.

We are proud that PE teaching at our school enthuses and inspires pupils to fully develop a life-long love of physical activity, sport and exercise. We also offer a wide range of ever changing extra-curricular activities for our children, from expert providers, with something available for every age range.

Pupils are encouraged to develop initiative and leadership skills and to acquire positive attitudes towards physical activities. They are helped to make informed decisions concerning a healthy lifestyle. Through this we hope to provide a lasting legacy of sporting enjoyment and success for our pupils both now and in their future lives.

Year 1 PE

Can I improve my balance and control?

To link with their work on Africa, the Sunflowers learnt some special African animal yoga.

E: It was tricky to balance.

F: My favourite animal shape was the butterfly.

S: I liked doing the lion because I had to do a silent roar.

J: My balance has improved and the yoga helps me to get strong arms and legs.

Bikeability

Well done to the pupils involved in Bikeability. There has been positive feedback from all the coaches and the pupils have impressed the staff with their positive attitudes too.

Thanks again to the parents/carers who supported the event, to Morrisons for the ice lollies, to Spar for water bottles and helpers, One Stop for water and to Governors, Premier Sport and Community Members for their help. A great event.

FS and KS 1 Sports Day

We enjoyed a super FS and KS 1 Sports Day today – our pupil voice team, along with Mr Middleton, organised a range of sporting activities for the pupils to compete in.

We awarded 1st,2nd and 3rd places along with the chance to make team points for your House Team. We were well supported by the community too - Spar volunteers came along to support and donated the bottled water along with the One Stop shop, Morrisons donated the ice lollies,

Governors came to help the pupils, parent volunteers helped organise the refreshments and Premier Sports coaches came along to help too – a great team effort. The pupils worked really hard and all of them showed a positive attitude to sports and to taking part. Green Team won on the day and we are now looking forward to KS 2 Sports Day next week.

A special thank you to Mr Middleton for organising his first Sports Day at Stanford and to the staff along with the year 6 pupils for their support too.

Soccer Aid

On Friday, the school hosted a special event for the children to raise money for the charity Unicef. ‘Soccer Aid’ has taken place all over the country, including a televised celebrity football match, and schools were invited to participate by hosting a “Playground Challenge”. Children were encouraged to complete an obstacle course with a football. Different elements of the course required different skills such as kicking, dribbling, balancing and throwing. Many of the year 6 pupils helped to support the other year groups throughout the day. By taking part in this important event, we can help Unicef provide life-saving food and vaccines, as well as life-changing education and support for children around the world. We also had lots of fun!

Everyone received a medal and certificate for taking part.

In fact, we have enjoyed it so much that we even made props at home to use in our routines!
