Sports and P.E at Queens Park Academy
PE and sport play a very important part in our curriculum and extra-curricular activities.
Through participation in PE and along with our school aims and values, pupils learn more about themselves as individuals and also the skills they need to play and perform in sporting competitions and events; as well as the skills to work co-operatively as part of a team.
We aim to provide higher quality PE lessons for all our pupils and give our pupils the opportunity to develop their skills in a range of sports. Each child receives 1 hour of P.E lesson a week. They also receive a further lesson of P.E every half term, which is taught by our sports assistant.
We also have signed up to Go Noodle which staff use for 5-10 mins up to 3 times a week to keep the children motivated and focused before lessons.
4 times a week in the mornings before the children come into class they do a morning run/walk to get them fit, focused and ready for the day.
We are very proud that Queens Park have their own football of children from years 4 & 5. They attend and compete in regular games amongst other schools in the borough.
Children also attend competitions run by the schools partnership.
In addition to this once a week we have:
-Year 5 have Swimming lessons at Bedford sixth form College.
-This half term we have specialist coaches coming in to teach:
-Year 2 football
-KS1 Scooter training
-We have students from Bedford College teaching football and multi skills to Reception children. They also run an after school club for KS1/2 children teaching them multi skills.
This year staff have and are running sports clubs during and after school, such as;
We did some fundraising for sports relief and British Heart Foundation in March and the children had a wonderful day doing a triathlon and learning about athletes and sporty facts. Staff also had to join in the triathlon and cycle. We raised a huge £667.64. This is brilliant and many thanks to our wonderful children, parents, family and staff couldn’t be possible with all their help.
