Physical Education

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.

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!
