In our PE lessons we aim to give every child access to progression-based learning, focusing on physical skills.
Alongside this, the children will develop their emotional and thinking skills, which is what our children need to achieve in PE and ultimately life!
We are developing and working on introducing key skills in our lessons that our children can apply to sports and other areas within the curriculum. These skills include:
Creative skills Cognitive skills Physical skills
Social skills Personal skills Health and fitness
Being active for at least 60 minutes a day is linked to better general health, stronger bones and muscles, and higher levels of self-esteem. We aim for children to be active for at least 30 minutes in school per day!

Weekly Mile and Weekly Sports Challenges
Each week our children take part in the weekly mile. There is also an opportunity to compete in a weekly sports competition. For children taking part, there is a chance to win use of the school's season ticket to see Darlington FC play at home!
Lunchtime and Break Times
Our children access different zones over the course of lunchtime to support them being active. The children enjoy accessing different areas and having fun with their friends!
We have recently developed our play ground markings to support the children further in being active during their break times!
Who has had a chance to watch Darlington FC play so far?
Each week our children are given a chance to take part in sporting activities over lunchtime. A child who has tried really hard to take part and be active is selected to access to the school's season ticket!
Our Active Leaders help to lead some of the playground activities during lunchtime in our active zones. Watch this space to find out how their skills develop...
Back at school...
Over the last 6 weeks our Active Leaders have started their leadership journey. They have been learning new skills based around the Playmaker Award.
The PlayMaker Award uses the letters P (participants) A (area) C (communication) and E (equipment). These are the basic leadership skills that will help children lead a session in the near future.
We have a Change4Life club in our school. The children promote leading active and healthy lifestyles. Look at what some of our children have been up to!
Our after school clubs have begun! What this space for updates about the clubs!
Is there a club you think you would quite like to get involved in? Take a look at the link to find out what we have on offer this term!
It has been great competing again local schools again. We have been going to events with a competitive nature and those with a less competitive nature to allow our children to experience events.
We did it! We aimed for our first gold award this year and we were able to do it!
Well done HHPS!
