Physical Education Primary
Primary PE has seen much enthusiasm and increased participation this year. The focus has been providing fun and engaging activities in a way that helps develop core motor skills and can be accessed by all pupils. In a change from the mixed martial arts offered last year we introduced boxing fitness last term as a trial for the lower school pupils. This was a great success and we look forward to offering some more interesting alternative forms of physical education in the summer term.
Thanks to our Sports Premium funding we installed an outdoor gym last year which has been used by many pupils throughout brake times and within PE lessons.
This year we are considering many exciting options to enhance the fitness experience with increased access so all pupils can and want to participate in PE at Newfield.
Swimming lessons have continued to be successful and popular.
Physical Education Secondary
Secondary pupils have continued to enjoy the football at any chance they get, whether at brake times or during PE lessons. Basketball, dodgeball and Athletics have been popular amongst our older pupils. The enthusiasm and knowledge of our staff at Newfield provides a perfect environment for our pupils to enjoy and excel in sport.
We look forward to the annual football tournament this summer and hope to be able to host another successful sport day.

PE at Home
During this pandemic it is important to keep our pupils safe, happy and learning. This is not the easiest task for everyone and at Newfield we hope to help as much as we can.
Being active and exercising will not only help with leaning or practicing new skills and sports but can also play a huge roll in mental health. It is advisable to exercise at least 3 times per week in a structured form as well as going for the one walk a day (safely).
To help with this please see a list of online learning resources for PE at home:
I know that things have been really difficult for schools and teachers recently as you try to navigate your role of keeping children across the UK learning, by supporting their parents with home schooling. I also know, as my role as BBC Children in Need’s Schools Ambassador, that children are finding things really difficult. A lot of children are missing out on the shared experience that schools bring and also really missing the social side of seeing their friends.
So I wanted to get in touch to say a massive thank-you for all the amazing work you’re doing to keep children across the UK entertained, happy and learning. You’re doing an incredible job.
Whether you’re still in school or staying at home, I hope you’ve been taking advantage of the fantastic resources from Twinkl’s Home Learning Hub and BBC Bitesize. They’re perfect for keeping children learning with loads of resources and activities.
I hope you and all the students you support have been joining me for my morning PE lessons to get active, feel energised and start the day off positively.
We know that some children may be struggling with their mental health/wellbeing being impacted by feelings of unease and anxiety. We also know that it’s an incredibly stressful time for parents, who are trying to support their children through this. So I wanted to share Dr Radha’s really useful, top tips to help parents and children cope better in these strange and uncertain times.
I’m really looking forward to the autumn, when I really hope to be able to see you as part of BBC Children in Need’s Appeal Week!
Thanks again for everything you’re doing – you’re all amazing!
Lots of love,
