Towards the end of the 16/17 academic year, Mr Glover and Miss Shone have applied for the School Games Mark. This is an award which recognises the organisation and implementation of sport and exercise across the school for the entire year. In previous years St Wulstan's have been awarded the Bronze award.
This year we have been successful in our attempt at achieving the Gold Status. This is particularly pleasing as it is the first time the school has received this award and it has taken a lot of hard work throughout the year from all staff across the school!
Our PE curriculum
'As a school, we promise that all of our children will experience a wide variety of sports and physical activity, engage in competition and understand the importance of health and well being.'
Over the school year, our children access a range of different sports. Our long term plan gives the children the opportunity to develop their PE skills whilst experiencing many different types of activity. Take a look at what we do throughout the year at St Wulstan's in PE here...
Developments in 16/17
This year we have introduced the Golden Mile as part of our daily timetable in school. Each class has a set time per day to complete their Golden Mile. We encourage the children to run but this is not a necessity. Any movement is good movement in our eyes. The children have responded very well to the new scheme and are even now trying different ways to travel around the playground for the entire mile.
This year, our staff have been provided with gymnastics CPD training. Therefore we have been using the apparatus during our gymnastic lessons to create unique and exciting routines. Take a look at some of us in action...
Standon Bowers 16/17
As part of our curriculum, every year, our year 5 classes spend a full week at the outdoor education centre, Standon Bowers. Throughout the week, children are given the opportunity to experience many different, unique activities which help develop the children's confidence and team working skills. The children thoroughly enjoy this opportunity and very often, never want to leave!
