Personal Challenges


This term all the children have been testing their skills at skipping. In the first week of spring term 2, the children measured how many skips they could complete in a minute. Every week in P.E lessons, the children have been practising their skipping as their warm up in the hope of beating their original score!

In the last week of the spring term, children will be comparing how much their skipping speed has increased!

School Games Values


This year, the Sports Committee (including Pupil Parliament and The Bronze Young Ambassadors) are taking on the role of ambassadors for the School Games Values. Each week, children from each class will be nominated by their peers or their teachers for showing exceptional effort in one of the six areas. The values they will be encouraging are:

  • Teamwork
  • Self-belief
  • Honesty
  • Passion
  • Respect
  • Determination


These values are important within all sports as well as our daily school life.


Full descriptions about the values can be found on the link at the bottom of the page.
