Sport AT South Moreton
At South Moreton, we encourage children to try new activities, to perform tactically and creatively and participate to the best of their abilities. We support children to enjoy the effects of being physically active. We teach children the value of exercise for health, well being and enjoyment, alongside encouraging enthusiasm, determination and good sportsmanship.
Twice-weekly Physical Education (PE) lessons take place within the class timetable, covering the full PE curriculum. Children are taught to develop their skills within a range of sports, including creative development through gymnastics and dance.
In addition to this, every class takes part in a full day of Elite Coaching each half term. These sessions are carefully structured, developing skills, tactics and game knowledge in the mornings, and transferring these skills into match play in the afternoons.
Facilities are excellent to provide these high quality lessons, with a well equipped Sports Hall, well-marked playground and extensive playing field. Pupils also make use of our extensive grounds throughout the school day, with active learning taking place across the curriculum.
We often run additional activity days and workshops which are supported by external teachers and coaches. Our most recent workshop, Capoeira, taught new skills alongside cultural understanding of the martial art.
South Moreton participates in Sports tournaments across the local area. Children in Key Stage 2 swim in the Spring and Summer Terms at a local pool.
Many of our pupils are inspired to further develop their talents in Extra-Curricular clubs provided by the school, or clubs in the local community, competing at county level.
