PE

 

At Brompton-Westbrook Primary School, we are immensely proud of our inclusive PE offer. 

Our 'Sports Teacher of the Year' Award reflects our school ethos of 'Achieve Together', since it is the result of teamwork right across the school - staff, pupils, parents/carers, governors, sports partners - all working together to provide the best possible opportunities for all of our children.

This was a fitness based project across The Westbrook Trust, to raise money for Medway Hospital to support their Covid-19 response.

On the 9th May 2020, in their own home or garden, or as part of their permitted daily exercise, our own school community ran, jogged or walked 431 miles towards the Trust total, together raising over £4000.

Click here for details of the challenge.  At least 40 members of staff took part, how many can you spot in the video? 

Mrs Allen, Mrs Bailey, Mrs Bass, Mrs Byrne, Mrs Cobley, Mrs Davies, Mrs Flain, Mr Fright, Mrs Grogan, Mrs Hambelton, Mrs Hayward, Miss Hetterley, Mrs Hofer, Mrs Ivory, Mrs Johnson, Miss Joughin, Mrs Kelly, Mrs Kirby, Mr & Mrs Lewis, Mrs Liddle, Miss Lynch, Mr Macdonald, Mrs Marie, Mrs Mason, Miss Millard, Mrs Millward, Miss Orr, Mr Presneill, Mrs Price, Mrs Pugsley, Miss Ralph, Miss Staples, Ms Stewart, Miss Thomas, Mrs Tindall, Mr Waghorne, Mrs Waterman, Miss White and Mrs White all took part.

Thank you to all our wonderful families and friends who took part in this challenge.  You are amazing!  

KS1 and KS2 Sport Pages

Keeping physically active is the vital foundation for healthy living and staying mentally strong in these challenging times.  Daily exercise is one of the few things we are permitted to do, and it's a great way for households to bond.  We are continuously reviewing what children can do as lockdown restrictions change, hopefully enabling participation in more physical activity as and when it is safe and feasible to do so.

Follow the relevant key stage tabs KS1 and KS2 Sport to find resources to keep your children active during lockdown, remembering to respect the social distancing rules.

Click here to see an exciting interview with David Walliams, which came about as a result of the 'Sports Teacher of the Year' award.  Go to 27:23 minutes. 

You could use Myon to read about your favourite sports, perhaps developing your knowledge of the rules, key people or history of the games.

Water Safety

As we wait to hear what the situation will be regarding holidays this summer, you may have started thinking about trips to the beach, where your children will be able to enjoy the open water for a swim or paddle, especially as our swimming pools all remain closed for the time being.  The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) would usually visit schools at this time, and also patrol the areas you are likely to visit, however the opportunities for both are fewer this year because of Covid-19.  So instead they have sent us some excellent resources which we are sharing with you here.

The most important thing you can teach your child is how to FLOAT – this will help save their life if they should fall into open water, or get into trouble while playing in the water.  A video showing children how to float is here.  You will find age-appropriate resources to reinforce the message on the KS1 and KS2 Sport pages.  We hope these resources will help keep our children safe while they are enjoying their well-deserved summer holidays.
