PE

At Springfield we aim to get the children as active as possible! Each class has the opportunity of 2 hours of good quality PE per week, including both indoor and outdoor activities, as well as swimming for Years 3 & 4.

PE is usually taught through discrete lessons, however where it fits some classes are able to include it as part of their Creative Curriculum. For example, year 4 completed a unit of Quidditch as part of their ‘Harry Potter’ topic.

Mostly, class teachers deliver PE in school, however all children have the opportunity at Springfield to be taught by external coaches, such as Sporting Bodies and Derby County in the Community, at some point during their time here.

Every child has the opportunity to take part in a range of extra-curricular clubs, including: Tri-golf, table tennis, football, dance and scooter clubs.

Our football team take part in local tournaments such as Swad Lions and the Prominent cup, we also take part the South Derbyshire Football league. We are hoping that by next year we will have a table tennis team to take part in some national tournaments…so watch this space!

Additionally at playtimes and lunchtimes children are able to access equipment like space hoppers, catch-a-cup games, skipping and parachutes to take part in structured play activities to ensure they keep active as much as they can.

We are very lucky to have such vast school grounds that enable us to give the children great facilities such as, the tyres and swings, trim trail, marked out football pitch and running track. Mr Tilley the caretaker is also looking into making us a mini golf course too!
