Clubs & Sport Activities
Physical Education at Stockton Wood
Spring Term 2016 This term has been a really active one for our children here at Stockton Wood, with all children participating in a wide range of sports before, during and after school. Here is a little example of what we have been up to this term….
Breakfast Clubs and Lunchtime Clubs Our breakfast clubs have continued to be really popular with the children. They arrive early to school and can choose a variety of activities to participate in, including football games, hockey, basketball, netball and dodgeball. We have also introduced Lunchtime Clubs, which now run every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday allowing a different class each half term to participate in extra sport.
The Curriculum Our P.E lessons this term have covered a wide range of the units found within the National Curriculum. In Key Stage 1, the units being delivered have included Dance, Football, Fundamental skills and Gymnastics. In Key Stage 2, the sports delivered include Dance, Gymnastics, Basketball, Dodgeball and Hockey. The children have made great progress this term in P.E. and their hard work has earned them a place on our dedicated Physical Education display board, which can be found in our assembly hall.
After School Clubs Our After School Clubs have also been really popular this term with Year 1 and 2 both having the opportunity to participate in sport after the school day has finished. The club offered to Key Stage 1 this term has been Gymnastics, with a huge number of children attending each week. In Key Stage 2, the sport delivered has been Tennis, with a focus on children in Year 3 every Monday. We have also formed a Dance Group this term, which met every Friday after school and Thursday lunchtime, in preparation for a dance competition.
PGL for children in Year 5, this term has been one they will never forget as they attended their residential week at PGL, Boreatton Park. During this week, both the children and the teachers were challenged to face their fears on many of PGL’s activities, as well as developing their team work skills through different challenges. Some of the highlights included kayaking, the giant swing, zip wire and ‘ambush’! The weather was not perfect during our stay. However, the children did not let this dampen their mood with everyone having a fantastic week!
