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!


In Summer Term 1 the children have been practising how many step-ups they can do in a minute. Every week in P.E lessons the children have been practising their steps ups in the hope of improving the amount of steps they can achieve. In the last week of the term children will see how much they have improved!

School Games Values


 The Spirit of the Games Values focus on personal excellence through competition and were developed by young people to identify what the experience of school sport should be built around. There are six values which have been designed to:

  • Provide a set of sporting values which can be embedded in school sport

  • Use sport as a tool to encourage children to develop their personal values and ethos

  • Achieve excellent standards of sporting conduct in the context of school sport 


The School Games Values which we promote in school through sport and everyday school life are:

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


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