Welcome to the P.E page where you can celebrate our P.E achievements together.
PE develops the children’s knowledge, skills and understanding, so that they can; perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities. These include dance, games, gymnastics, swimming and water safety, athletics and outdoor adventure activities. PE promotes an understanding in children of their bodies in action. It involves thinking, selecting and applying skills, and it promotes positive attitudes towards a healthy lifestyle. Thus, we enable the children to make informed choices about physical activity throughout their lives.
3/4 Gymnastics 7.1.23
I am delighted to say our 3/4 gymnastic team came first. The whole team knew how to encourage and cheer on each other and I could not be prouder. Thank you to all the children, parents and staff involved, it was certainly a team effort. A huge well done to the year 3 students that took part – well done.
Bob Alexander Memorial Triathlon 14.11.22
Sporting excellence was on show today. Our children had to do bench hops, push ups, bunny hops and ball bounce in the gym events. The second half of the event was a relay swim and finished with a 800+ meter run – each! Well done team, you have done the school proud once again. Thank you as always to the parents/guardians that support the school in this, we are very thankful for all you do.
KS2 3/4 Miniskills 11.10.22
The children of Fairsnape Class have done St Francis proud once again representing us. We brought 6 children to compete in a range of games and our collective efforts got us 2nd! Well done to all of the children involved, you guys were brilliant and represented the school impeccably. I am proud of each of you and we only finished 3 points short of first, so we are talking a couple of seconds, it was truly that close.
Boys 5/6 Football 29.9.22
Thank you to the Y5/6 boys who behaved impeccably, tried their best and kept the St Francis values close to their heart – you did the school proud today. The boys managed to win us the 3rd place trophy as it came down to a tense penalty shootout which unfortunately, ended in our only defeat. We then got to play for 3rd place and they worked their socks off and won 5-1 . In total we scored 20 times and only conceded 4 goals throughout the tournament. It was great to see everyone working together and how strong the team was; especially that 6/8 members of our team are year 5. Thank you once again boys, you have done us proud! Thank you also to the parents that supported the team throughout, we are truly grateful.
Sports Festival 14.6.22
The sports festival was a fantastic success for St Francis. We entered 4 events and won 3, 3rd place trophies – fantastic! The events we entered were Giant Skills where a range of skills were put to the test (relay, sprints, throwing, catching, shooting and an obstacle course. We also had a boys and girls football team and a tennis team. The children represented the school brilliantly and their attitudes were fab. For me the awards were the cherry on top – thank you children you were great. Additional thanks are needed to Mr Gilmour, Mrs Riley and Mr Derbyshire for their helping hand during the competition. Please enjoy some of the pictures below of the event.
