PE and Sport

Barnsley Music Education Hub website now has new features which we really hope will support schools. As well as a new Online Learning section that was developed last term, we have also been working hard to reduce the amount of printed paper resources that we use, therefore we have included the following documents online:

·         Pupil Practice Diary

·         Pupil Handbook (Lots of information about how lessons work)

·         New Starter Form (Pink Form)

Here is The link to these documents:

Ready… Steady… Go!

Wow, what a day we have had! The children were incredible throughout their first Sports Day at Dorothy Hyman Stadium and were so enthusiastic. Everyone took part in the games and tried their very best. We are so proud of the children, and it was so lovely to see how proud they were of themselves, no matter where they placed.

Key Stage 2 Cycling

Our cycling event took place on Wednesday 9th June. We had 51 children participating from KS2 and everyone gave their best ~ we will be announcing the winners shortly.

Outdoor Team Building

As part of this year’s ‘Mental Health Awareness Week’, the Year 5/6 Tigers took part in an outdoor team building session. The goal was to work in teams and build a successful shelter that would protect them from the rain. Everyone worked well and communicated with one another to build some fantastic shelters. It was a great morning and was enjoyed by all. Thanks TCV!

The life cycle of a chick

The children have loved learning about the life cycle of a chick ever since our chick eggs arrived on Monday. They were so enthusiastic that they wanted to be just like them! In PE we created our own dance, representing the life cycle. How special!

Den Building

Thank you to The Conservation Volunteers for working with our Year 6 children today. The children thoroughly enjoyed taking part in this outdoor activity, working in teams to build dens and decorate them with the items they found on their scavenger hunts.

Under The Sea

The Butterflies have really enjoyed going ‘Under the Sea’ during their PE lessons. They have been working hard to sequence together dance moves, based on different sea creatures.

Run, Leopards, Run!

The Leopards took part in a lesson focussing on running techniques. The children began by joining in with a series of mobility exercises and followed this with a focus on stride length. Mr S was very impressed by the end of the lesson!

Evasive Leopards

The Leopard are learning all about tag rugby. The children started this term by trying to evade each other. They had a lot of fun playing ‘sharks and seaweed’!

Egg-chasing Leopards

In week 2 of tag rugby, the children focused on their ball handling skills. The children made great progress with their catching and passing (remembering to pass backwards!) throughout the lesson.

Attacking Leopards

During week 3 of tag rugby, the children focused on attacking in tag rugby. The children worked on their catching and passing before taking part in 2 vs 1 drills. There were some fantastic displays of attacking rugby!


We’re working collaboratively, boosting our ‘feel good factor’, and keeping our minds and bodies healthy!

Team Building Day

The Foxes spent time reintegrating with each other throughout some very special team building activities. We showed caring, collaboration, creativity and communication in our problem solving as well as having lots of fun!

Our Mining Community

This term, the Foxes have been creating different dance sequences based on Our Mining Community. We used Laban’s method of choreography to focus on dance actions, space, levels, dynamics and relationships.

Waka Waka

The Year 5/6 Tigers have been working hard in their dance lessons with Mr. Wattam. They have done a great job at choreographing a Benin style dance using African inspirations to the song ‘Waka Waka’.
