At Christ Church Primary School, we aim to establish a sporting culture that enables and encourages all children to play and enjoy sport.
Christ Church is proud of the sport that we offer; both in PE and Games lessons and extra-curricular activities.
Every child takes part in at least 2 hours of physical activity each week. This is either in PE lessons in the hall or a Games lesson outside. Over their time at Christ Church children will have experienced various sports and gained many skills.
We are very lucky to have great links with local clubs. From the enjoyment of PE in school, many children go on to join local teams and clubs in a number of sports, such as: Hockey, Football, Gymnastics, Tag Rugby and Tennis.
What do children at Christ Church think of their PE lessons?
When asked what Rhys enjoys about PE, he said, "I enjoy the warm-ups and the games as it makes me get better and fitter.
"I loved athletics because it made me ready for sports day." Chloe
“I think I have made a lot of progress in PE this year; I have improved my skills." Lily
“I have participated in the swimming gala and a football match. It was good to be competitive and represent the school.” Toby
“I learnt new skills in cricket and enjoyed playing with my friends." Oliver
“Multi-skills was excellent. I enjoyed hula-hooping with the girls and enjoyed learning about basketball." Bethan
