St Bartholomew's PE and School Sport Aims, Objectives and Organisation:


At St Bartholomew’s, we aim to highlight the constructive effects that sport can have on everyone, regardless of ability, to become physically active as there is a sport out there to be enjoyed by everyone! PE is a subject which provides social, academic and physical development, as well as life skills. PE should be an inclusive subject, aimed at increasing mass participation. This is especially important to ensure that pupils understand what makes a healthy lifestyle, and how to maintain one. We really believe that PE provides a fantastic opportunity to develop a wide range of physical, mental and social skills and can really benefit all pupils.

11/11/19 - 15/11/19: Sports Hall Athletics!


Last week saw a busy week here at St Bart's with lots of sporting action!


A number of our Year 5 and 6 children took part in the School Games Sports Hall Athletics Competition. This is a fantastic event where all of the children participate in 3 different athletic events. Points are awarded in each event and the school with the highest number of points are crowned the winners!


Competition was fierce with 4 schools all vying to win! Our St Bart's athletes performed fantastically well. The events included track and field activities, such as relay races, long jump, chest push and javelin. The children were superb and represented our school and themselves in the St Bart's way. They never gave up, they tried their best and showed excellent teamwork and sportsmanship.


Through their hard work, the team finished second, which was a fantastic result, especially considering the quality on show.


Well done to everyone who took part!

18/11/19 - 22/11/19: PE lessons explained...


In case you weren't aware, from years 1 - 6, each class has 2 lessons of PE each week. Within these lessons, the children learn about 2 different sports or activity areas. New activities are then taught each half term. 


In KS1, the focus is on the children developing their fundamental movement skills and physical literacy (such as running, jumping, hopping, skipping, co-ordination, balance and throwing and catching skills) whilst sampling different sports.


When the children arrive in KS2, the children use these skills and continue to apply and develop them in more competitive games, making their PE lessons more sports specific, whereby learning the skills to use in those games (e.g. Invasion games, striking and fielding games, Athletics, Outdoor and Adventurous and Dance etc).


In KS2, the children start to develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success. At St Bart's we value the importance of sportsmanship and being able to work in teams. Therefore we try to teach through games where possible, to allow opportunities for the children to do this and develop these skills. It is just as important being able to play in the right way.

We provide a sampling style PE curriculum, where the children get to experience many different sports, as we want all of our children to find a sport or activity that they enjoy, to spark that passion for physical activity, to then be active both inside and outside of school.


If you have any questions about the activities that your child is participating in during their PE lessons, or have any queries about PE in general, please feel free to get in touch.

13/01/20 - 17/01/20: We're back!


Welcome back and hello 2020. We hope you all had a fantastic Christmas. We have had a busy start back at school. 


After school clubs have re-started with the eagerly anticipated addition of Mrs Gaylor's Dance club. Within PE lessons, Year 3 have started a new programme with "Epic Academy", where they will learn all about the cardiovascular and respiratory systems and Year 4 have started their Swimming lessons.


This week, we also held an inter-class running challenge! Each class went outside and ran around a 150m track for 10 minutes. Individual distances were then recorded and added together to create an overall distance. 


Last week, some of our Year 3 children also attended an Endball Festival at the Alan Higgs Centre. This event was aimed at children who would not usually represent the school in different competitions. Therefore this was a non-competitive event for the children to represent the school and have some fun. The children had a fantastic time and it was great to see the children using the skills they have developed in PE and enjoying themselves.


Please remember, every Monday means "Wake Up Shake Up". 8:30-8:45am in the school Hall, completely free of charge. This is a great way to kick start the week!


We have got many more events and competitions lined up, so keep your eyes peeled for updates!

02/07/20: Hello everyone!


It has been a little while since I updated this blog. As you know, school has been a little different over the last few months. But we have done what we can do to keep you active! However, once we are all back in school in September, we will be able to put lots of exciting sporting plans together for you!

So take care, stay active, and we will see you all soon.
