Infant Sport Update

It has been a busy time for the Infants in PE this year as well. The Infant Sport Council and 8 children from Year Two attended ‘My First Steps to Leadership’. They were given the skills and confidence to lead P.E warm ups and games in their class lessons.

We are also excited to provide a funded multi-sport after school club for Infant children. The club has been a fantastic success; children have enjoyed building on their ball skills and playing lots of fun games. We look forward to the Infant running club starting in the Summer Term.

On Wednesday 13th January, children from year 5 and 6 attended the ERPSSA sportshall athletics competition. Having practiced hard in PE, the children were all very enthusiastic and keen to do well. There was a mixture of track and field events such as obstacle relays, speed bounce and the Parlauff! Against some stiff competition, the children did amazingly - finishing in 7th place overall! Well done.

30 children from Year Four took part in a mini Olympics tournament at Cleves School. They competed in a range of relay events including; running, rugby and hockey. Ashley School did an amazing job and came in a very impressive 2nd place, only 5 points behind the winners!

"The Olympics was really fun and it took a lot of team work."

"It was a good day because everyone cheered each other on."

"It was amazing because everyone played there part to achieve second place."



In the Autumn term 20 children from Year 5 and 6 took part in ‘Physifun’ training. The children learnt many leadership strategies and skills to make games both fun and challenging. The children will use what they have learnt to deliver exciting and engaging lunch time clubs to the rest of the school during the summer term.

Running club

We would like to say a really big thank you to the parents who have been organising and running Junior running club this term. It has been a huge success and has got so many children running regularly at school! We are in no doubt that they contributed massively to our success at the District Sport Cross Country Event. Thank you!

Message from Mr Dunne

We are developing a great partnership together to support PE and sport throughout the school. Well done to all the children for all of their successes. We look forward to many more exciting opportunities to come in the summer term!
