PE and school sports are a focal point that can be used to define our school’s culture and they are paramount in developing and reinforcing our school’s ethos-instilling our pupils with MAGIC Habits! Our pupils are engaged in a rich, broad and balanced curriculum and a wide range of extracurricular PE and sports programme which provides them with ample opportunities to challenge themselves within the school and against their peers in other primary schools.
Keir Hardie has continued to achieve The Gold Sports Mark – gold being the highest accolade for primary schools – since the 2017/2018 academic year.
This is an acknowledgment and celebration of our PE and sports provision. Below are highlights of what our pupils have recently achieved.
KS1 Mini Olympics
Our Year 2 pupils competed in the Autumn Mini Olympics competition held at Lister Secondary School on Monday 18th October 2021.
Sports Fortnight 2021
Over the last 2 weeks, we have been celebrating Sports and Healthy Lifestyles at Keir Hardie Primary!
We have had Sports Days for different phase groups, dance and sports workshops for both pupils and staff, and our school lunch company brought in a Smoothie Bike for pupils to get active and make their own delicious smoothies, whilst learning about the benefits of incorporating more fruit and vegetables into our daily diets.
Staff streamed a daily Energise and Rise session in the morning to all classes, so staff and pupils could all start the day with more energy.
It’s been a wonderfully active two weeks, and we hope our children carry forward their experiences and maybe experienced something they hadn’t tried before!
Year 2 Athletics Competition
Well done to our MAGIC Year 2 pupils who came first after competing against other local primary schools in the Year 2 Athletics Competition!
