P.E and Sports at Bewsey Lodge.
I am Mrs Hunt and I am P.E. Leader at Bewsey Lodge. I work alongside other staff ensuring that we have excellent and enjoyable P.E. sessions for the children. I also organise the sporting competitions that the children participate in.
Monday 10th - Wednesday 12th September 2018This week, we're taking part in Joe Wicks' Schools Fitness Week. Key Stage Two will be in the hall together following 'The Body Coach' in his Hiit sessions. Monday was a big hit! Pupils and teachers alike worked up a sweat, while enjoying a morning workout to get us energised for the day ahead.
Videos and photos to follow!
WB 25th June 2018
This week was National Sports Week. The Sports Crew have been in the process of organising a fun-filled afternoon of sports, which we will be confirming in the coming weeks.
As well as that, some sporty pupils have joined me three mornings this week at 8am! We have been playing rounders together before the start of school. They have been brilliant, they showed wonderful team spirit and great running and catching skills! Well done, we are all very impressed with you.
We are lucky to have our very own PE coach in school, Mr Riley, with a specialism in football, which he has a range of qualifications in. Mr Riley will teach your child’s P.E. session and the class teaching assistant will be there to support him.
Our P.E. lessons cover a range of physical activity and sport. Each area of Physical and Sport development is carefully differentiated to ensure that our children progress each year as they pass through school.
EYFS- Fundamental movement skills (FMS), which consists of throwing, catching, jumping, striking, running, kicking and agility;
KS1- FMS, games and gymnastics;
KS2- Invasion games, fitness and agility, athletics, gymnastics, striking and fielding and net and wall.
The children in Year 3 also access swimming lessons at Orford Jubilee Hub.
Alongside Mr Riley we have specialist coaches from Warrington Wolves who deliver Physical and Sports development sessions to our children with additional needs. They plan and teach exciting activities for the children in the Designated Provisions which develop the children’s physically ability and encourages them to play in team games. The activities are fully accessible to all of the children.
Each class across Key Stage 2 will participate in an extra hour of physical activity and sport for a half term as part of their CLASP session. They will improve their skills whilst playing enjoyable team games. Alongside the sports lessons, children will participate in a ‘Commando Joe’ session, developing their skills in teamwork, confidence and physical activity. Research has proven that these skills transfer into other aspects of the children’s lives and help build confident and resilient learners.
Your child should have an indoor and outdoor P.E kit. The contents of the kits should include:
White T shirt, blue shorts and black pumps.
White T shirt, tracksuit bottoms, tracksuit jacket, trainers.
Please note that earrings should be taken out or plasters sent in to cover them up. This is for health and safety reasons.
Trainers must be worn for outdoor PE lessons as they are harder wearing and support the children’s feet better on the hard ground.
We encourage our children to participate in sporting competitions where possible. This may be either within school or competing against other schools in Warrington and the surrounding areas.
This year we will be taking part in football tournaments throughout the year with other schools in the local area. Your child may be chosen to participate in the team from time to time. The children are improving their skills weekly in football club, so we’re really looking forward to the year ahead.
Other competitions will be organised throughout the year and we try and encourage all years to take part in a range of different sports. We aim to not only improve the children’s skills but to boost their confidence and enable them to be a good sport.
We have a ‘Sports Crew’ in our school; this crew exists of a team of children from KS2 who organise competitions within school. This gives the children in school opportunities to compete against each other in different sports which have been devised by their peers. The Sports Crew, who have designated roles, take ownership, plan, prepare and run the competitions. They also play games and sports with other children at dinner times.
