On Monday 7th February, the children at Grove Primary School were lucky enough to work with a dance teacher in class workshops. The children learnt a traditional dance and used a variety of props including parasols, fans and dragon heads.
Over the summer holidays Grove Primary School installed some orienteering courses. Pupil Voice is a central feature of how we gain evidence about the effectiveness of our actions in PE.
Our Acting Head Boy said,
“I really like orienteering because it is a good way to have fun and activities in PE. I like having a goal to accomplish. It is the ultimate lesson.”
Our Head Girl told us,
“Orienteering is really good because it builds up your maps skills and it gives you a goal to complete in Maths and English. It has a bit of Geography too.”
This morning some of our leaders found out what children in Beech, Pine and Birch Class think of our new orienteering courses. This is what the pupils had to say,
“It is really enjoyable and I find it very interesting. It develops my map skills and is like Geography. I like the Maths and word solving.
“I like discovering the numbers and words. I like having a goal to complete.”
“Orienteering is like Maths and English in one lesson and it’s really fun. I think it is worth the time setting it up and worth us playing it.”
“I think it’s really fun because it is exciting to do in P.E with a goal to accomplish.”
“I think it is fun because it’s like loads of lessons in one, such as Geography and Maths.”
“I think orienteering is exciting and a really fun lesson. Also it’s worthwhile and a great choice for our school.”
Thank you Billie and Marty for collecting our pupil voice today.
PE and Sport PREMIUM 2017-2018
The PE and Sport Premium is funding provided to schools in addition to main school funding. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on the provision of PE and sport in schools.
The premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, in the 2016 to 2017 academic year, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.
For Grove Primary School and Nursery has equated to £16, 000 plus an additional £10 per pupil from year 1 to year 6.
It is for schools to decide how the PE and Sport Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made to enhance the provision for PE in school. Schools are to be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding.
