At St Bartholomew’s all children have access to 2 hours of physical activity a week. Each class is allocated a one hour lesson in the new MUGA which has just been built. We are currently using GetSet4PE scheme which has provided staff with lots of new ideas and a variety of different sports for the children learn.
This year we have purchased lots of new equipment to ensure each child has the correct equipment for the lesson. Each class has their own equipment for break and lunch times to promote physical activity. The school has bought into the West Leeds School Sports Partnership. This allows the school to enter organised sports competitions each week, these range from year 1 to year 6. We also receive support from a qualified sports coach from Leeds Rhinos for 3 hours a week.

Year 4 spent Wednesday morning competing in their sports day. They took part in hit the wickets, cheat push, agility run, obstacle course, middle run, long jump, javelin and speed bounce. They all did very well working as a team to collect as many points possible as a class, followed by a sprint race. Each class was split into a boys and a girls race, with the top 3 going through to a year group final. Class 12 managed to sneak the most points for the different events, but class 11 managed to take the top 3 spots for both the boys and girls races. Well done to all who took part. They all tried very hard and I know their teachers were very proud of them.

Curriculum - Physical Education - Mission Out Trip
Class 13 and year 5 children in class 15 had an amazing day at Mission Out. The day began with team building activities – children developed their communication and problem solving skills during this time and it was nice to see the children celebrate each time an activity was completed successfully! Children then went onto the high ropes! It was lovely to see the children complete their own challenges (some completed level 1, some completed level 2 and some completed level 3). Children should be very proud of their accomplishments on the high ropes! It was then time for lunch before the children were able to explore the rest of what Mission Out had to offer, including the jump tower, swings and venturing out on to the lake!
Well done to all that visited as the behaviour of children was exemplary!
