Our School Aims
Our aim is to make sure we are delivering a high-quality physical education curriculum that inspires all pupils to succeed and excel, in not only competitive sport but also other physical activities throughout the school day. We are not only active in our Games, P.E and swimming lessons, but also making other curriculum lessons active. The children also complete the Daily Mile to make sure we are helping them get used to an active lifestyle, but also getting their brains ready for the next lesson.
How we support children to be competitive.
We offer opportunities to compete at a variety of levels from Intra school competitions, which are held throughout the year. This leads onto some children also taking part in Inter school competitions. These children are selected from our Intra level competitions, as much as possible. We also have pupils who have also achieved selection through to County Final competitions, which is an excellent achievement. Currently we have 4 teams who have made it through to this level of competition in Rowing, Sportshall, Cross country and Dodgeball, which is a fantastic achievement. Not only that one member of our cross country team have just achieved a place to compete at the National Final. We are so proud of them. However, most of all, we are immensely proud of the attitude, teamwork, dictation and the way they support our own athletes but also pupils from other teams as well.
Healthy, Active lives.
We value the importance of providing opportunities for healthy, active pupils. We help them develop to be physically confident and make sure we are supporting our pupils health and fitness.
Personal Challenge Booklet
We are lucky enough to work with the team at Coventry and Warwickshire School Sport Partnership. They have produced this personal challenge booklet which you can use at home, if you wish. I believe they are going to be sending us more over the weeks, so please keep checking back. Please see below.
In case you haven't heard...…(but you probably have), the Body Coach is doing a daily 'PE lesson' at 9am of his You tube channel. It looks good. If you've had a go already we hope you are enjoying it.
Dance Dance Dance!
Another fabulous way to keep active is dancing. Liz England (Fit to Dance) has kindly created a dance for you to learn. A great way to get moving. Thank you Liz for creating this.
Whilst we are keeping active, we can also develop our skills and fitness. Here are two pack for you, the first to help throwing and catching skills and secondly for developing fitness with a hoop. Please see below for some ideas.
At Telford Junior School, we take our sporting attitude very seriously and this is encouraged in all our pupils. Whether this is during games lessons, intra school tournaments or even when we are competing against other schools, we feel these principles are very important.
