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 from Ignite Sport teaches two classes on a Thursday morning. Mr. Kennedy leads a Wake and Shake session each Thursday from 8.15 am. Class teachers also teach PE.

What a fantastic effort by our Year 3/4 and Year 5/6 teams!  Well done to James Fisher who came

third in the Year 4 category. Year 3/4 team came 6th and Year 5/6 team came 4th overall. Both

events were hugely enjoyable and the children were great ambassadors for St Amand's School.

Our super Cross Country teams, September 2016

This year we competed in the Wantage Cluster Cross Country competition; children raced against about fifty children. They worked fantastically as a team, clearly pushing their own personal boundaries in running. Our Yr 3/4 boys' team came third and will represent the school in the Vale competition next month. All children should be proud of their determination, sportsmanship and perseverance.

Many achieved their personal bests

Helena came first in her race,

James third, Harriet fourth and Grace seventh

Oxfordshire Dance Festival at the New Theatre - 7 December 2015

Twenty eight key stage two children danced to Matilda's 'Revolting Children' song. We were absolutely brilliant. We had a lovely day. After our rehearsal on centre stage, we enjoyed a trip to the National History and Pitt Rivers museums in Oxford. We were so excited about dressing up and performing in front of our parents and a large audience! For some of us, it was the first time we had performed. What a brilliant experience! We think Miss Robinson is a fantastic teacher who helped us to choreograph our dance. Thank you.

Last school year we participated in the Oxfordshire Dance Festival at the New Theatre for the first time. It was brilliant!

We are now practicing for this years dance festival, which is based around Matilda The Musical's, 'Revolting Children' song.

Children's PE Comments


I’ve learnt in sport, that it is not about the winning, it’s about the taking part. How has sport benefited me? I have learned that I can run faster if I move my arms up and down.  



I do enjoy sport! It’s my favourite subject and my favourite sport is athletics.



I think sport has made me determined to reach my goal more than I used to and it has also made me stay healthy.

Sports and PE make me lively and want to do more!

My best achievement in sport is getting into the athletics team every year!!! I really enjoy running, so I think that is my best achievement.



My best achievement in sport is becoming a level one in gymnastics.

I have attended fencing, gymnastics and sports club.  I have learned new and better techniques.



I have benefitted from sport as I have learned to work more as a team. I really enjoy sport and PE and try to do lots!

Best achievement was being in the cricket team.  But sadly, we came second and the Vale School came first.  But it was about taking part, not winning


My best achievement in PE is that I’ve learned how to do handstands........ I love sports and I really like it when I get into a tournament!



My best achievement in sport was when I got first place, three times in cross-country in Year 3.

I enjoy any sport which is active and where you run around.



I have enjoyed a lot of sport, but my top three would be cross-country running, rugby and last but not least, cricket.

I love PE so much – it’s my favourite thing to do, along with maths!
