We also competed in several rugby, netball and football festivals and excelled in our new sports: dodgeball and floorball.
Over the year, there were opportunities to participate in basketball and lacrosse taster sessions.
We took advantage of offers from the independent sector to particpate in coaching sessions for netball,
athletics and dance.
Children in KS1 were invited to participate in several games festivals held in local schools and St Peter's hosted a Sports afternoon for 72 Early Years Children across the confederation of schools.
The Daily Mile
Our new all weather track proved invaluable over the winter as it meant children could continue their 15 minute run even when the field was waterlogged! This daily run has certainly contributed to the school's success in competitive running. The run is inclusive in that everyone is aiming to improve their personal fitness and performance. Both pupils and staff note that there is a positive impact on attitudes to learning.
