Physical Education

 

At Grove Primary School children from time they start in the Early Years children are encouraged to take part in physical activity to promote their social and physical well being. From KS1 onwards, all children take part in two Physical Education lessons a week. PE helps children to develop a range of physical skills including body awareness, balance, co-ordination and agility. In addition, PE also helps to develop children’s confidence through working as part of a team. The PE curriculum is taught through games, athletics, gymnastics, dance, outdoor adventurous activities (OAA) and swimming. Children from Nursery to Year 3 have the opportunity to swim in our school training pool during the second half of the summer term.  Children in Years 4, 5 and 6 take part in swimming lessons externally. In addition to the formal curriculum, the school also participates in local primary school tournaments for a range of games, across the hub and supported by the Local Suffolk Schools Partnership. 

 

We also encourage children to participate in extra curricular clubs, during breakfast, lunch and after school clubs. These are posted termly so please inquire if your child is interested.

Two teams played in the North Suffolk ALT Football tournament playing five other schools from the area. Both teams performed well in their respective groups, with the Tigers playing some amazing passing football. The Panthers only lost one game and came away with the trophy! Well done all who took part on a grey evening. Once again the parents who attended were resilient and didn't flinch supporting their children through the rain, super proud of all the children and parents . The sun did come out as we left!

January 2018

Over the Christmas holidays the pool area has had a makeover! We are now able to offer undercover outdoor P.E. and the children are loving it! We have been able to offer a greater variety of lunchtime clubs and they have been taking advantage of the facility daily. Also we have a space for after school clubs and now are not limited to the hall during the winter months.

ALT hockey Tournament Year 5 

 

Two teams from Year 5 attended the ALT hub hockey tournament, playing against 5 other schools. The games were once again really close with the A league positions being decided with the last game between Grove and Red Oak , both teams needing to win to be placed second. Despite great effort the game result was a 0-0 draw. The team contesting the B league had a fantastic goal fest in one of their games winning 8 -nil! Grove were placed third in each league another brilliant effort by all taking part. A special mention must go to all the parents who supported the children on a wet, windy and very cold evening.

Year 4 children, two teams, travelled to Red Oak to play in a uni-hoc tournament. Playing in the purpose built sports hall provided a fast paced game and all the children demonstrated the ability to adapt to the new play situation and adapt their game accordingly. They demonstrated great sportsmanship during and after the game, which was noted by the other people attending the tournament. Very proud of all who took part!

Year 3 North Suffolk ALT Football Tournament 

September 29th @ Red Oak Primary School

 

We entered two teams in the North Suffolk ALT schools football tournament for Year 3 children. The games were 7 a side and played over 5 minutes. 
All of the children attending behaved excellently following the Golden behaviours and representing their school in the highest standard of sportsmanship. 
We had some very close games many of which were goal less draws due to the stunning saves of our goal keepers, Freddie Darleston and Adam Fuller who both earned themselves Man of the Match accolades.

 

The B team only lost to the eventual winners Pakefield, and the A team won their league to lift the trophy. Well done to all . A special thank-you must go to the parents who stood and supported in drizzly weather- Thank you!
