Our aim is to offer a range of engaging, creative and exciting PE lessons which give the children the opportunity to learn and try new things, gain physical skills and also develop their skills of sportsmanship for future life.
We encourage participation in a wide range of our extra-curricular activities and also through the local competitions we take part in.
Our Sports Teacher:
We have a full time Sports teacher who teaches P.E. to all of our classes, from our two year olds to Year 6.
Mr Holmes also takes the children on Sports Visits and to competitive events. There are free after school sports clubs everyday.
Sport at Burton Green:
Sport is a priority at Burton Green school which is why we invest in a full time Sports teacher. Our children love P.E. and cite this area of the curriculum as one of their favourites.
We teach a wide range of sports at Burton Green including: football, golf, tennis, multi-skills, hockey, athletics, dance and gymnastics. In the Spring and Summer term each child will take part in a daily run. Children in Year 3 and 4 also have the opportunity to swim every week. We ensure that children have access to equipment at every playtime in order to practice their sporting skills.
We enter a range of competitive events and also maximise links with other schools. We have both a boys and a girls football team. Our school also takes part in dodge-ball competitions with other schools, Cross Country and take a large group of children to the Brownlee triathlon at York’s Sport Village.
Sport is celebrated in Assembly every Friday and we have Year 6 Sports Leaders.
