We are lucky at Elmtree to have been given a grant by the government called Sports Premium. This grant is given to help improve the quality of PE and sport in schools. It must be used to fund PE activities.
Reception attend a Winter Olympics at Chiltern Hills Academy, Year 1 are introduced to the skill of orienteering and Year 2 enjoy learning the rules of dodgeball. In addition the whole school has been involved in sports challenges which have included skipping activities and walking all he way to Rio.
Please see the link to find out more.
Our PE curriculum encourages all children to take part in a variety of physical activities including dancing, running, jumping, throwing and catching.
The children develop co-ordination, agility and balance.
Healthy living is promoted along with team games and competitive sports.
In our school we have "Elmtree Houses". Each child is allocated a coloured team - Red, Green, Yellow or Blue. Each team has the opportunity to collect matching coloured tokens. The tokens may be awarded for teamwork, kindness, respect and participation across the curriculum. Each half term the team with the most tokens will receive a reward. This will encourage competition between "Houses" and foster pride, teamwork and co-operation.
Please take a look at some of the sports activities and clubs on offer.
