We are very proud of our commitment to sports, health and competition. Through 2 hours of P.E. teaching a week children learn a range of different personal skills, game rules and strategies which are applied to a range of team games, athletics and dance. All children enjoy the opportunity to visit local secondary schools for swimming lessons and gymnastics. As well as P.E. lessons children also make great use of our rural surroundings by exploring andIMG_1886 maintaining our school environment during forest school.

Sports activities are also very well attended and enjoyed after school. Each term a range of different sports are offered to all ages; from team ball games to specialist skills such as circus skills and archery!

Throughout the year every child represents our school in sporting competition against our GloWMATCH cluster friends. We enter county trial competitions and are committed to training for and competing in Gloucester league football and netball tournaments.

Please enjoy celebrating our commitment to training and all sporting achievements by keeping up to date with our blog.

A great day was enjoyed by all at Westbury today where we joined with our GloWMATCH friends to take part in lots of sports activities and games. Split into Key Stages we were able to meet the friends we have made in competitions during the year! We used all of our sports skills in a carousel of activities including; throwing, running, jumping, balancing and much more! We also competed against other teams in an end-ball tournament.

Thank you to Mr Carpenter for the great photographs.

We spent the evening dancing with 600 children from other schools around the Forest of Dean. A great evening was had by all enjoying the dancing, live band and refreshments! Our parents did a great job of supporting us with encouragement and picnics – even joining in with us for the last dance! We are looking forward to next year already!

Sponsored sports with Dominick Cunningham!

On Friday the England and Team GB Gymnast Dominick Cunningham visited us at school. He helped us to complete a circuit of activities to raise sponsor money for new sports equipment for school. We all worked very hard to complete a set of 4 different activities.

Dominick also brought photographs and videos showing his gymnastics training using different apparatus. We really enjoyed watching and learning about the tricky and very physically demanding sport. We also had a live demonstration from Dominick where he showed us lots of impressive floor skills!

A huge thank you to Dominick – we are very inspired to train hard to become professional gymnasts and athletes after your visit!
