PE at Longmoor Primary School

Picture 1

At Longmoor Primary School P. E. makes a vital contribution to each child’s physical development, health and well-being. Whilst also helping to develop social skills, team work and self-confidence.
PE activities are designed to be challenging and enjoyable and through the PE scheme of work, children are also made aware of the benefits of a healthy and active lifestyle.


Sports Relief 2018


For Sports relief we completed a charity day where the children walk/jog/ran for 20 minutes and danced for 2o minutes. It was a very active day for the children in which they were left very tidied and ultimately satisfied with some excellent physical activity. Well done all. Thank you everybody for your sponsorship pennies, we are still counting up all of the money.

The whole school this week took part in a Curling competition, each class took turns as part of their indoor P.E. slot to chase gold. The classes were split into four teams and were given their own nation from the Games. The total score for each country was collated to make a medal table.


The results are in;


1 Kenya   60 LM
2 Kyrgyzstan   50 SL/RS
2 Moldova   50 JS

Unbelievable performance from FS2's Moles who took Gold.



Keep an eye out for our next whole school competition which is basketball/handball.  


At Longmoor we take part in as many sporting competitions as we can. It is always a pleasure to see our children get stuck into competitive sport! The children always show excellent levels of enthusiasm and teamwork skills.  We also take part in sporting festivals which provide great opportunity for children to try something new and learn new skills.

Daily Steps Pedometer Challenge!

In order to encourage our learners to be more active during break and lunchtimes, we have been running a whole class daily steps challenge using pedometers to count our steps.  The classes in KS2 have been taking it in turns to use the pedometers for a week at a time - they really have been getting lots more steps everyday!!


Keep going with those steps everyone!! 


Miss Mills and her 'Girl Can' committee have done lots of work over the past school year in order to raise the profile of sport and physical activity for girls.


Over the year, the committee have met regularly to discuss how girls are involved in sport at Longmoor and how we can continue to promote and encourage girls sport physical activity.


Miss Mills organised some 'Girl Can' training through the partnership team. This was a great opportunity for the girls to get some ideas flowing and to really understand the purpose of the committee. They looked at lots of female role models, female sporting legends and considered the barriers to girls and sports. They played lots of fun team building games and considered ways we could include these during lunchtimes.


The Girl Can team met with Miss Mills where we came up with our school motto - 'Like a girl, this girl can!'

They then presented an assembly to the school where we discussed the term 'running like a girl' and shared our motto with the whole school.  They also invited the children in KS2 to take part in a Girl Can poster competition.
