Our rich curriculum offers children the opportunity to explore and take part in a variety dance, gymnastics and games activities.
We are really proud of our Physical Education and School Sports provision here at Queensbridge, and have been actively working to raise the profile and give all children a chance to succeed. We are proactive in using government grants to improve the resources, equipment available and the breadth of sports we provide to our pupils!
We believe that there are many ways of winning in PE and school sport – it’s not just about who comes first. Teachers at Queensbridge encourage and value pupils, who show commitment, take part in different activities, think for themselves, are keen to improve, build up strength, stamina and confidence and most of all enjoy themselves!
Our rich curriculum offers children the opportunity to explore and take part in a wide range of sporting activities, here is a brief outline of the exciting opportunities we offer:
Reception and Year 3 have weekly Yoga sessions, teachers have mentioned that they notice an improvement in the children’s motor skills and that many of the children, especially those with SEN, find it very relaxing.
Malcolm Hill is back for a 4th year of ballroom dancing, teaching Y1-5 and is, as always, on the lookout for children to enter into local competitions!
Year 2 have weekly tennis lessons with Paul in which they develop their hand-eye coordination and practise tennis skills.
New for 2018 is a football session with Marc from the FA who will work his way through all classes in the school teaching them football skills through fun games.
Cycling proficiency Y5- riding on the road (Julian Erwin is now a trained cycle support)
We continue to provide exciting cross-curricular opportunities for example dance lessons for Chinese New Year and Diwali.
Also new for 2018 is that Queensbridge has become part of the Active Movement programme. Teachers have been inventively incorporating movement and activity into lessons and encouraging children to be healthy for life.
Queensbridge also offer some super sporty extra-curricular clubs in girls and boys football and are looking forward to starting a running club in summer term!
We enjoyed a brilliant sports day last year and look forward to repeating the successes, celebrations and excitement this summer in Haggerston Park!
