At Wren Park we believe it is important that the children exercise regularly and are taught about how to live a healthy lifestyle. During lockdown we know that some children were very active whilst others, for a number of reasons, were less active. In school we want the children to be active and making use of the outdoor spaces as much as possible. Every class, from Reception through to year 6 have a weekly Soccer Stars session and an outdoor PE session led by their class teachers. Classes also make regular use of the field, playground and trim trail to fit in extra physical activities and learning opportunities. Where possible, PE is used to enhance learning in other curriculum areas, including maths, science and PSHE.
This year, due to the current restrictions we have made the decision not to take year 4 swimming. We are, however, planning to ensure that these children are still given the opportunities to swim by taking them in year 5. We are also unable to provide any extra-curricular activities at the moment, due to these restrictions, but school has links with Cycle Derby and other outside agencies and will be promoting any out of school activities we are made aware of. Our breakfast club, run by outside providers, also ensure that part of their morning sessions are active and, weather permitting, held outside.
