At Mitcheldean Endowed Primary School, we recognise the importance of PE and the key role it plays in promoting healthy lifestyles and team work. Our PE curriculum aims to provide all children with high quality sports provision whatever their ability, in an encouraging and positive environment. It is our vision for every pupil to achieve, believe and contribute, all of which can be done through our varied and exciting PE curriculum and the wide range of sporting events entered as a school. We strive to inspire our pupils through fun and engaging lessons with class teachers and coaches, as well as sporting professionals visiting school to motivate our children to future sporting success and opening up new opportunities. Through competitive sport we not only want our children to appreciate the benefits of a physically active lifestyle, but also the transferable life skills such as fairness, respect and humility leading them to be well rounded individuals who can work as part of a team.
Pro Stars Football Tournament
Mitcheldean has joined up to the Pro Stars Football League this year and attended the first tournament on Friday 15th October. We took a year 3/4 team and a year 5/6 team. It was a fab morning and all children had great fun! There was some super sportsmanship demonstrated too. Thank you to Cam and Josh our pro Stars coaches for their support with training.
We are very proud of the children who represented our school at the Forest of Dean Cross Country Team Race. they had a great time and demonstrated brilliant team spirit. It was lovely to be back at a sporting event after so long! A huge thank you to Mrs Francis for her efforts in training the children.
Sports days 2021
With restrictions for COVID still in place we have reinvented our sports day at Mitcheldean. Each year group are having their very own sports day during the course of the summer term.
We are so pleased to say we have managed to get swimming back up and running at our school ready for the summer term! It's been tough with COVID and swimming had to take a back seat. However we now have years 4,5 and 6 back at the swimming pool and having great fun during their sessions.
Year 5 have participated in Bike Ability this term and are now safe cyclists on the road. Well done Year 5!
Dance with Mrs Pearce
Our school has been lucky enough to welcome Mrs Pearce into school to do dance with all year groups during the summer term. The classes who have had their sessions so far have thoroughly enjoyed them! Watch this space for the virtual dance show at the end of term!
Rugby skills practise
Year 5 have enjoyed the weather since returning to school and have been practising their rugby passing skills.
