PE at St Amand's is varied and exciting. We are part of the Vale Sporting Partnership, which allows us to compete in many competitions through the course of a year. Mrs Duggan, our PE teacher, teaches PE to all year groups on a Wednesday. Our Sports coach, Miss Bush from Ignite Sport, teaches two classes on a Thursday morning. Miss Bush leads a Wake and Shake session each Thursday from 8.15 am. Class teachers also teach PE.
The Year 5 and 6 cricket teams played at Challow Cricket Ground in a competitive event against other schools in the Vale. There was an even mixture of wins, draws and a few losses, but most importantly, the children were great ambassadors for our school and enjoyed participating!
Two fantastic teams (Years 3/4 and Years 5/6) represented St Amand's at the Quad-Kids Competition at King Alfred's West Site. They took part in long distance running, sprint, long jump and vortex. The children were fantastic competitors, but special mention must be given to Joe, who came first in the 600m race and Jonathan who was first in the 50 m sprint. Well done to all the children who took part.
Twelve Year Six children have been chosen to be the Primary School Leaders for St Amands. They have a responsible and important job leading others to be more active during break times.
They organise games, teach new games, devise new games, motivate others to better personal challenges and lead warm ups during sporting competitions (amongst other things). Meet the team....
WE ARE AN ACTIVE SCHOOL!!!
These photographs, taken at playtime, show just how much we move over the space of one day at school!
We are fantastic competitors! We have entered lots of competitions this year and we have done so with enthusiasm, fairness, effort, competitiveness and always with good manners! Here are some photos of the children that competitively ran, played rugby, netball, football, basketball and badminton. Look out for the photos of the cricket team and Quad Kids who are yet to compete in Term 6!
Sports' Visitors to the school.
This year, St Amand's has welcomed Zoe Pugh, the All Stars Champion from Oxfordshire Cricket Board. Zoe talked to the children about fantastic it is to play cricket. She was hugely inspiring and promoted the importance of how sport can change your life - it's fun, it is essential for good health, you make new friends and you learn how to be part of team....and so much more! The KS1 children got to play cricket with Zoe!
Celebrating our achievements outside of school!
