Believe, Achieve, Succeed

Our Vision (Intent)

"Together Everyone Achieves More'

At St-Augustine’s Physical education is delivered to inspire all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive and recreational sport. It provides physical, mental, emotional, Cognitive and social dimensions of a child’s development. Also, an emphasis on the contribution of physical activity to the promotion of individual and group well-being. We want to provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness, as well as embed the values of fairness and respect. From this, we hope to nurture young minds into confident, articulate and well-rounded citizens where everyone feels valued, respected and included whilst improving mental health and developing social skills.

 

"Don't be afraid of being a beginner."

Implementation

Here is how we break down our curriculum into each key stage. 

What's been going on in P.E. and sport across school this year?

Fitness tracker Term 1

Our first week has been a great start to physical activity. Every term consists a fitness tracker that Mr Warran does to keep track on how the pupils fitness levels are doing throughout the year. We focus on the fundamentals of speed, strength, balance and hand eye coordination. This gives us a great insight into how the children may progress or need that extra help during PE sessions.

Tag rugby Term 1

Term 1 sport has officially started!

This term is all about hand-eye coordination, with a mix of spatial awareness and teamwork. We had year 4 getting familiar passing the egg in certain directions as in the game itself. Children find that they play any sport where the ball is passed in any direction, but telling them you have to pass backwards to move forwards was a head scratcher. Although, as the lesson went on we was able to develop from the basics and more game direct.

 

Year 4 Badminton Festival

We had a lovely experience with some of our year 4 children playing various games of badminton. The idea behind this event was to introduce a new activity to children and see who would like to take it up. The children had a fantastic time and all would be up for having another event. Big thank you to England Badminton and MCA for hosting the event. 

Year 6 Tag Rugby Tournament

First event of October for our year 6 tag rugby team. The boy's and girl's absolutely did us proud. It was a very tough tournament and we only had 4 weeks to prepare, but we managed to win 2 games and score in every game at least once. More importantly, everyone gave 100% and shown great sportsmanship and shown honesty and fair play.

Year 3 MUFC tournament

This month some of our keen footballer players were enjoying their chance to play at The Cliff training ground. These boy's also went in year 2 and now a second time round they loved it even more. Children played against 5 other school's in 3v3 matches where they got to show off some of their skills they've learnt over the last year. Every child came away with a sweaty face and tired legs, but enjoyed every minute.

We are proud to be given the gold award for our efforts in PE and sport during the 2021-22 academic year. We try to go above an beyond for our pupils, so they can have the best experience in PE and sport. We hope to do even more this new academic year. Keep a look out for the updated news letter for tournaments and results.

2021-22 PE and extra curricular activities

Have a look below at some of the activities we got up to last year!

BIKE RIGHT

 Here we have our year 6's learning the cycling safety when riding on the roads.

Debdale Outdoor Center

As it is the year of OAA, we thought to treat some of our wonderful year 5/6 students. We took them on a trip to Debdale Outdoor Centre, we got involved in teamwork puzzle games and wet activities in the lake. Take a look at the pictures and videos, I'm sure you'll giggle.
