P.E Clubs and Tournaments
This half term we have lots of exciting clubs starting! Take a look below at the timetable.
YEAR 4 DAY OUT - 27/09/19
A select few of our year 4 class had the opportunity to attend the Euorpean School Sports Day (ESSD) Flagship day ran by the North Western Counties Physical Education Association (NWCPEA).
We had taken a mini bus to the Indoor athletics track next to the Etihad Stadium where we was to take part in multiple activities such as.....
A select few of our year 4/5/6 students class had the opportunity to attend the Racket Pack Festival at the Manchester Tennis Center.
All children had a fantastic time being introduced to a new sport and an event that was all inclusive for abilities and ages. It is very important to have these introductory events as this will allow children to try new activities/sports that they usually may not get to try. Also taking the competitiveness out of it and just trying your best can be a nice change for them so everyone will go away with feeling of achievement.
WELL DONE CLASS 4/5/6 STUDENTS
After 7 weeks of Athletics after school club, we finally managed to get to the North Sports Hall Athletics competitions. This was held at the North Co-operative Academy where we had 24 enthusiastic year 5/6's with 2 girls and 2 boys teams. Each child had the opportunity to take part in at least 4 events, which included running track and field events; javelin, long jump, speed bounce, and chest push.
IT WAS GREAT SEEING ALL THE RED FACES AFTER THE EVENT AND THEY WERE CERTAINLY HUNGRY AND TIRED!!
WELL DONE EVERYONE FROM Mr. Warran and Miss. Topping
St-Augustine's Weekly Mile
What is the Weekly Mile?
The Weekly Mile is a simple initiative set outside of the normal P.E. and other extra curriculum activities to get children out of the classroom once a week for fifteen minutes. This involves running or jogging, at their own pace, with their classmates, making them fitter, healthier, and more able to concentrate in the classroom. This will steadily increase to a daily mile as the school year goes on.
Here we have some KS1/2 classes still smiling which is always nice to see while put through their paces.
Part of our health and safety week, we have year 5 and 6 taking part in the bike right scheme. They will learn how to be safe while cycling on the Manchester roads. Below we have them learning their level 1 safety checks and basics before heading out on to the roads.
Primary Starts Competitions held by Manchester City
A selection of our fantastic years 5 and 6 footballer players got the chance to take part in a nation wide wide tournament held by Manchester City FC. The team did very well coming top of there group in the group stages on 20th January, which allowed them to breeze through to the finals on 7th February and to go as far as the the semi-finals.
The team was disheartened by the loss by one goal, but a little treat of grabbing a great picture with a big named player Raheem Sterling brought the mood back up.
Very proud of the team with how far they went in tournament!!
North year 5/6 Dodgeball Competition
A number of our year 5 pupils took part in the North Dodgeball Competition based at Manchester Communications Academy on Wednesday 5th February. All the team did very well and had lots of fun, also 2 of our players picking up the awards for self belief for Manminder and determination for Ellis.
The team came a respected 5th place out of 8 teams which is a great achievement as other schools brought higher year groups.
This is our Sports Leaders Team.
The children have been taking ideas from other classes and making decisions on how to improve the PE in our school.
On Mondays and Fridays, they give up their lunch time to provide physical activities for other children in the school to ensure everyone is moving!
