Physical Education at Our Lady Immaculate Primary School

 

PE is a valued part of the curriculum at Our Lady Immaculate School. Each pupil in school receives two hours of PE each week. One hour is allocated for indoor activities such as gym, dance and multi-skills. Children are taught to develop their fundamental skills and movements through activities in each area of indoor PE. The second hour is designated to games activities. During lessons, transferable skills are developed through a range of sports. Skills are developed through planned activities categorised into; Invasion Games (Football, Netball, Basketball, Hockey), Net and Wall Games (Tennis, Badminton), Striking and Fielding (Kwik Cricket, Rounders).

 

In year 4, as part of the national curriculum, children have a term's worth of swimming sessions, which take place at Grand Avenue School pool. The children are taught by our specialist swimming teacher, Mrs Blunt and all enjoy the swimming lessons enormously.

Inter-School Sports Participation 

 

Children throughout the school are given the opportunity to compete against themselves to improve personal bests and against each other to learn about honest competition and the nature of winning and losing. Additionally, there are many opportunities for children to compete against other schools in the borough in a variety of different sports. This includes inter-school sports competitions and festivals in a wide range of sports including: Football, Tag Rugby, Netball, Basketball, Cross-Country, Tennis, Cricket, Rounders, Table-Tennis, Dance, Athletics, Tri-Golf and Orienteering. In recent years, O.L.I have improved in participating with more inter-school sports events and therefore increasing the sporting opportunities for our pupils. In the academic year of 2016/17 the school reached a personal best of 10th place in the Borough school's sports participation league table; an improvement of twelve places from the previous year. We are on course for an even better position for 2017/18!

Sports Day at O.L.I 

 

Children will prepare for an annual sports day during the summer term in athletics sessions, which is the highlight of the year for many of our budding athletes. The children partcipate in a range of track and field events at Kingsmedow Athletics track. KS1 children participate in a range of fun-filled and non-competitive multi-skills events. For KS2 children, sports day is an inter-house competition, and good-natured rivalry takes place. The children participate in a wide range of track and field events including a 60m sprint and the standing long jump. The winning house, has their house colours on the sports day cup for the forthcoming year, and is accepted at the end of sports day, with great pride, by the winning house! In addition, other trophies are handed out to pupils based on School Games values such as: Honesty, Pride and Teamwork.

School Games Mark 

 

Based on the PE and sports provision that we offer at O.L.I, we have recently recieved the gold School Games Mark for the academic year 2017/18. This achievement further confirms the excellent standards of physical education at our school. 

 

We regularly add information to our school's page on the School Games website including sports-based blogs written from pupils and teachers alike. In fact O.L.I have in recent years won blogging awards for write-up based on sports events in which we have participated in. In addition, this page contains information on the inter-school sports events which O.L.I competes in.

PGL Windmill Hill Experience

In the Spring term year 6 pupils visit an activities camp for a week long PGL residential trip where they participate in outdoor and adventurous activities. The main objectives of the trip are to encourage independence, teamwork and communication and this, for many, this will be the first time that they have been away from home for such a period of time, but they always all come back with a smile on their faces, having had the best time ever!
