Ladypool Is Aiming For Gold!
Ladypool Primary has now been awarded a 'Pathway to Podium' SILVER certificate in recognition for the ongoing work into improving PE across the school. The Pathway to Podium initiative has been designed to recognise and encourage schools' contribution to Physical Education, school sport and physical activity (PESSPA).
We are continually looking at ways to improve PE for both students and staff alike and work closely with Sport Birmingham, Youth Sports Trust and School Games Organisers to ensure we build exciting opportunities for all.
Ladypool is 'bowled over' with fun cricket sessions!
Ladypool pupils were fortunate to receive some cricket training from a Warwickshire Cricket Board coach. The ks2 pupils were shown how to warm up correctly before practising their batting, catching and fielding techniques. Our children were surprised at how much they improved in such a short period and would continue to develop these new skills in their PE lessons.
Ladypool finds 'Time To'...
As part of our ongoing commitment towards our children's health and well being, Ladypool has invested in 'Time To' booklets for each of our pupils. These booklets focus on exercise, mindfulness and yoga to enable our students to actively develop healthier lives. The children are able to use their planner to record their targets, memorable moments and activity times on a daily basis. They also contain advice and tips on managing their diets and ways to improve concentration and focus using calming techniques. We hope our pupils can continue this journey at home with their families.
