Physical Education should allow children to develop an enjoyment of physical activity, our aim should be for every child to identify an area they enjoy and are passionate about (whether that is traditional sports, gymnastics, dance or an alternative way of staying active). All children should understand the benefits of staying fit and healthy, in terms of both physical and mental health by the time they leave Studley Green. Our children often lack the resilience required in learning and sport should be seen as an opportunity to develop this and other character skills. Children should have the confidence and ability to engage in competitive sports and through this competition develop character skills, such as: respect, teamwork, resilience and an understanding of fairness.
We aim for pupils to: be involved in competitive sports; be engaged in sporting activities for a sustained period of time; enjoy a broad range of physical activities and lead healthy lives.
On Tuesday 24th September, we went to the Civic Centre. We learnt how to be Sports Ambassadors for Studley Green Primary School. This involved taking part in activities and planning what to do as a Sports Leader. One thing we learnt is that anyone can take part in sports, even if you are disabled or have difficulties. However, for anyone to take part in sports they must have: teamwork, self belief, respect, passion, honesty and determination. These are the sports values that our tournaments and festivals in Wiltshire are based on. Next week, we will be looking for more Sports Leaders to help on the playground. We will help to train them and share what we have learnt, so that they can lead games and lunch time and break time.

We had a fantastic Sports Day this year! A huge well done to all of the children, who each took part in: the javelin throw, a sprint, long distance running (KS2), a fancy dress run (KS1/EYFS), an egg and spoon race, the accuracy throw, an obstacle course, the long jump and a skipping race!
