At Twickenham Primary Academy, some form of physical activity takes place every day in our curriculum. Our outdoor PE sessions will be either on site or at The Green. They focus on mastering basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination. Pupils are encouraged to participate in team games and to develop simple tactics for being an effective team member. Indoor PE is held in our large hall and includes gymnastics, dance, apparatus work and yoga. From Year 3 children also go to swimming lessons at a local pool.
We believe it is important that every child has the opportunity to play sport competitively. Our school sports teams play against other local schools in tournaments and matches throughout the year.
In addition to curriculum sport, we have an extensive list of sports clubs, which are run in the mornings and after school. Through these clubs children can further develop their skills or try out entirely new sports like basketball.
Every summer we hold a whole school sports day, where all children are encouraged to take part and have fun. Sports day is a fantastic opportunity for parents to come along and see their children in action. Weather permitting, children and parents can round off the day with a relaxing picnic in the sun organised by our parents’ association.
