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:

Sport at Birkwood 2020

Before lockdown, we had another outstanding year of sport here at Birkwood, with many successes for our children. Well done to everyone who was a member of our sporting teams.
Thank you to Mrs. Porter and Mr. Wattam for all they do.


Here are some highlights from our gymnastics sessions. We were really impressed with the children’s confidence, balance, strength and control!

South Yorkshire Finals – Football

Our U11 boys played three brilliant matches at the Sheffield United SteelPhalt Academy. They played against teams from Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield and finished 4th in South Yorkshire. Well done boys – we are all very proud!

Gymnastics in the Jaguars

During the Spring Term, the Jaguars will be focussing on gymnastics during their PE lessons. They will be developing their flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance. They have made an excellent start!

Boys’ Futsal

Well done to both teams that took part in the Year 5/6 Boys Futsal competition at Horizon CC. Congratulations to Birkwood B team who made it to the finals.


The Jaguars are focussing on basketball this half term. The children have been working on their dribbling skills, making sure they use a wide hand grip to push the ball. Mr. S was very impressed with children who were changing their dribbling hand when they changed direction!

The Foxes can move!

Mrs. Porter has been very impressed with The Foxes Ballroom Dancing this half term. They have perfected the Cha Cha Cha and have now moved onto the Waltz. I’m sure you will agree, they are giving the contestants of Strictly Come Dancing a run for their money.
