PE at Great Linford Primary School
Great Linford Primary School believes that sport and physical education (P.E) can contribute to not only a child’s physicality, but their health and well being also. Here at Great Linford Primary School, we aim to provide a broad P.E curriculum in order to increase the chances of all children in P.E lessons. We encourage children to have a healthy lifestyle that, alongside physical exercise, enables them to live healthy and happy lives. We provide many opportunities for the children to thrive, achieve and reach their full potential in competitive and non-competitive sports.
Sports Teams at Great Linford Primary School
At Great Linford we actively take part in a range of sporting events across the year. From football to rounders. We think it is a fantastic was of encouraging camaraderie at school and providing children with the opportunity to take part in fun events.
Events so far:
The district cross country event took place on Saturday 20th October at the MK Bowl. Our team had been training for several weeks and were well prepared for the event. We are extremely proud of their achievements.
Staff vs Pupils basketball
Staff challenged the Year 6 children to a game of basketball to see who could have bragging rights for the rest of the term. Despite several bad backs and dodgy knees the staff assembled a strong team to face the youthful pupils team.
Although the staff started strongly, the pupils fought back earning a few points. However, the experience of the staff proved too much the youngsters with the staff coming out victorious.
Our fantastic new Sports Ambassadors participated in the Year 5 and 6 Dodgeball Festival at Shenley Brook End Secondary School this week.
The children battled well, came up with some great tactics and dodged lots of balls! The children did amazingly well and came third overall! We are so proud of you!
Thank you to the staff and parents who came and supported. We definitely had the best cheerleading squad!
Free before school sports club
Here at Great Linford Primary School we value sport but understand that it can be expensive to attend all the various clubs outside of school. That is why we are delighted to continue to offer free sports clubs with Mr White before school every morning.
Inspired Through Sport
Through Inspired Through Sport we had the opportunity to meet boxer Jordan Reynolds, who hopefully will be representing Team GB at the next Olympic games. He gave a moving speech about how he got into boxing before giving out children sporting activities.
As a school we then raised money to help fund British athletes achieve their dreams by representing our country. We are proud to say that as a school we raised over £1000 which is amazing. This also meant that Mrs Jenkins and Mr Shipton got to spend £650 on new sports equipment, so make sure you keep an eye out for this in your PE lessons.
Well done to all the children who helped raise money for the school.
This year we are very lucky to have Mr White joining us from KITS academy to deliver high quality PE sessions across all year groups.
