Summer 2024


Welcome back to a filled term of PE! We have many events to attend with our Sports Partnership School games events from competitions to inclusive events and also have our Sports Week at the end of Summer 1 to look forward to. Each class engages in athletics among sports such as golf, rounders, cricket or ball skills. 

We got gold! All of our passion and commitment towards PE and sport have been awarded with another year of gold school sports award. What an achievement for Homerswood.

This weeks votes for schools is focusing on the importance of physical activity for our physical and mental health. In class, the children continued this conversation with considering sugar levels and energy drinks impacting this. This links to our physical literacy: the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge, and understanding to value and take responsibility for engagement in physical activities for life.

Year 5 represented Japan at the Paris Olympics Event at Gosling today. We took part in various events on the field and a special well done to our sprinters and relay runners who represented us in the races!
