PE at St Cecilia's Junior School
Here at St Cecilia's, we enjoy a variety of different PE sessions and Extra-Curricular activities. We endeavour to ensure that children get 2 sessions of PE per week; this may be in the form of Sports, Athletics, Dance, Swimming and/or Gymnastics. These sessions are delivered by class teachers, our Sports Coach, or external providers.
Extra-curricular sessions often result in competition participation. So far this year, children have competed in Water Polo, Athletics, Football, Hockey, Basketball and Dodgeball competitions. We have many more coming up, including dance.
Children must have their PE kit in school every day, as PE can take place on any day of the week (weather dependent). Children can wear the school PE kit or tracksuit. Sensible trainers or pumps must be worn in PE lessons.
In addition to these sessions, all children take part in "Fun, Fit, Friday" where they run the School Mile. All children wear their PE kits on Friday and complete the run in Year Groups, to encourage a healthy lifestyle.
Children have been taking part in Relax-ED sessions, run by their class teachers. The sessions promote mindfulness and well-being and provide relaxation techniques to relieve stress. This helps the children to feel calm, which is vital for classroom learning. The positive nature of the sessions promotes a "Can Do" attitude and contributes to a healthy mind and an awareness of positive mental health.
