A balanced programme of P.E. is offered to all pupils which includes, games, athletics, dance and gymnastics. We encourage active participation in all sessions and see P.E. as contributing to the physical and mental development of all pupils. We aim to develop pupils’ skills, co-ordination, balance and appreciation of sport and dance. We want pupils to experience a range of games and athletics activities and develop their fitness, strength, stamina and flexibility. We want them to develop an understanding of safety in sport, fair play, co-operation and creativity.
We hope children will leave BrooklandsPrimary School with the view that sport is fun and that participation in sport can bring both social and physical benefits.

The governors have approved the following for P.E. kit, which is compulsory. Boys and girls should wear a white T-shirt (without slogans) and navy or black shorts. They will also need plimsolls or trainers.
At KS2 tracksuits or “joggers” can be brought in and used for outdoor P.E. All P.E. kits should be brought to school in a suitable, named P.E. bag.
It is VITAL that all clothing (including coats) are named. Sew on or iron-on labels are available from Wilkinson’s, Morley’s and “Busy Hands”. Alternatively use an indelible ink-pen to write your child’s initials on the label.
We are pleased to say that we have received a Gold Award in the Sainsbury’s School Games Mark this year. We have been awarded silver for the last few years and this is our first gold.
We all know that we need to lead healthy lifestyles. Do you know how long children should be active for each day? The Chief Medical Officer recommends that children should be active for at least 60 minutes per day. 82.5% of young people are not meeting the Chief Medical Officer’s guideline of 60 active minutes each day. The guidance states that this should be 30 minutes at school and 30 minutes at home.

Since we know the importance of physical activity, we are going to launch ‘Boredom Busters – Let’s get active at Brooklands’.
We are going to have a new theme each month and we would like you and your children to join in and have some fun. This month’s theme is ‘JUMPING JANUARY’. Please encourage your children to jump this month – this could be in the living room to songs, outdoors in puddles, anything that involves jumping. We would love to hear what you get up to so please share with your child’s class teacher via their Class Dojo page.
Then keep a lookout for the new theme for next month!
Happy jumping everyone! Have fun!
