Keeping our pupils active and healthy through Physical Education and Competitive Sports
Between 23rd and 27th November we would love it if you could go outdoors and complete an active mile; it could be walking, running, hopping, skipping, cycling, scootering or anything you can think of to move a mile.
This isn't just an activity for pupils, we encourage parents, siblings, carers, grandparents or anyone else you want to invite to take part alongside you and your families (if does not have to be completed at the same time).
How does it work? Well, all we ask is that you log your mile via the online system. By registering your activity you will go into a draw to win our school £400 to spend on developing sport and physical activity within school.
The more people who submit their entries the more chances our school has to win. Entries before 23rd or after 27th November will not be counted.

The events that will be running are
Athletics Pentathlon - KS2 only
Orienteering - KS1 & KS2
Gymnastics - KS1 & KS2
Football - KS1 & KS2
We have been supplied with all the required instructions to hold these events in school as they will work differently to the usual inter-schools competitions.
Mrs Topham is very excited to get started and is looking forward to seeing some fabulous results!!
COME ON TEAM SIMONSTONE!!
Monday 10th February 10 Y3/4 pupils went to St Augustines to compete in the Ribble Valley Gymnastics competition. All children had to perform a set floor routine and a vault (which the children were very excited about!). All 10 gymnasts performed beautifully and came away with amazing score for their performances. Mrs Topham is very proud of the conduct of the children both on and off the mats and would like to say a huge "WELL DONE" to each and every pupil involved. Also a massive Thankyou to all our supporters who stayed and cheered us on all afternoon.
Physical Activity Festival
On Monday 20th January 8 Y5/6 pupils went to Roefield to participate in the Physical Activity Festival. They took part in a Spin Class, used the Gym, learnt a Street Dance routine and enjoyed a Circuit training session. All children and staff had a great afternoon! Thankyou Ribble Valley SSP.
Sports hall Athletics
What a night! 12 Y5/6 athletes competed in the annual Sports hall Athletics event last Thursday. Every child took part in 4 events including bot track and field events. We had some amazing performances and came in 4th, narrowly missing out on a podium place. Well done to all the athletes you represented your school wonderfully and did it all with a smile on your faces.
Y 3/4 Football
We are setting each KS2 child personal challenges this year; this may be during play/lunchtimes or within their PE lessons. This is part of our Gold mark requirement for 2020/2021 and every pupil will be challenged to do activities they have never done before and/or develop skills they have to become more confident and advanced in these skills.
