P.E. and sport

Term 1

We have an exciting year ahead of us with lots of fun P.E activities planned and I would like to welcome Mr Lawless on board as our P.E apprentice teaching assistant this year.  We are really looking forward to the extra-curricular clubs and sports resuming with lots of opportunities for all pupils to take part and stay active.  The school sport calendar begins on 17th September with a year 5/6 football festival at Cliftonville Primary School.  Please see below to check out all the action photos for this year.


Mr Hood


Year 4 have had a great start to the year in P.E, playing lots of our favourite football based games and improving dribbling and passing skills!

Year 6 have began the year playing dodgeball and developing their teamwork skills!

Well done to the year 6 football team who participated in the first school's football festival of the year on Friday 17th September, held at Cliftonville Primary School.  There were some excellent teamwork skills and a good team spirit demonstrated throughout the event as well as some super football!

Saturday 25th September 2021

The year 5&6 girls football team participated in the DW cup held at Upton Junior school and performed amazingly well!  We played games against Haddon Dene and Upton, winning both 2-0 and 1-0 respectively, with goals scored by Grace and Lily-Rose.  In the other fixtures, the games ended 0-0 with some excellent defending shown by Sadaf and Chloe in goal.  In the end, the girls were undefeated and only missed out on qualifying for the final by 1 point!  All in all, an incredible effort and everyone who took part should be very proud of themselves.  Well done!

Term 2

We have lots of fun sports and activities lined up for the children during term 2.  KS1 (year 1 and 2) will be developing their throwing and catching skills whilst learning how to play dodgeball in P.E.  KS2 pupils  (year 3,4 & 5) will be playing basketball in P.E lessons and will be learning attack and defence strategies.  We will continue to run our after clubs as follows:

Thursday - Year 5&6 football club


We also have lots of competitive school sport events happening so keep an eye on this page for photos!

Thursday 4th November



The starting lineup – Aaron in goal, Leo and Fin in defence, Brendan as defensive midfielder, Roman as a boxto-box midfielder, Jacob in attacking midfielder and Bradley upfront, with William on the bench. The first half was very end to end with the majority of the chances falling in our favour. The second half was similar to the first. With good football from both teams, ending without goals to separate them, leading to extra time. The match continued with the same intensity with chances for Roman, Bradley and Jacob. Unfortunately, they were kept out by the Holy Trinity Ramsgate goalkeeper. In the final few minutes the ball dropped on the edge of the box to Jacob and he smashed it into the top right corner to take us through to the next round. Well done to everyone who took part.


Year 6 PGL trip (8th-12th November)

Our year 6 children had a fantastic week at PGL, challenging themselves by taking on a range of different activities.  The activities included; trapeze, giant swing, climbing wall, abseiling, archery, rifle shooting and more!  All pupils showed tremendous resilience, determination and behaviour and were a credit to the school throughout.

Term 3


Year 6 Football team match report 17th January:


Quarter Finals v Bromstone 1-1 (Bromstone win 4-2 on penalties)


The year 6 football team were in action on Monday afternoon and put in a heroic effort in the quarter finals of the Les Riggs Cup, only to be defeated on penalties by Bromstone.  The game started off at a frantic pace and we deservedly took the lead mid-way through the first half after good work from Jacob set up William, who converted from close range.  In the second half, Bromstone threw everything they had at Holy Trinity and equalised late on despite some amazing goalkeeping skills from Aarron.  The game ended 1-1 and went to extra time and then penalties.  Everyone should be extremely proud of how they have performed and the teamwork, togetherness and resilience shown was absolutely fantastic.  Well done, you did the school proud.
