Statement of aims for PE
On Monday the Champions attended a sports festival at Sharnbrook Academy. The festival was based on Football and Dance. A Photograph of the sports festival can be seen below.
Two groups completed dance and football tasks, the dance group created a dance routine and had the chance to perform at the end of the festival. The football group worked on dribble passing and working as team.
We celebrated the dance groups routine in school today during our Celebration Assembly, and all students who attended were presented with a certificate
Just a gentle reminder to ensure that your children have a full PE in school every day.
Next week we look forward to the champions special fun fitness day!
In this week PE update we share the champions Scootablity morning!
The children all had their scooting skills put to the test. During the session the children were taught how to complete safety checks on their scooter before riding, and discussed scooter safety. Champions then worked on their balance to help improve their scooting skills. Well done champion's fantastic job!
Next week we look forward to the KS1 Multi Sports Festival at Sharnbrook!
Champions will be taking part in dance and football! pictures from the festival will be included in next week's update!
We kick off March with a PE festival for our Year 3 & 4 Class. The students travelled over to Westfield Primary School to compete in a Score-Ball competition.
Young leaders gave the students a taster session in Score-Ball which included skills such as passing, moving and working together as a team.
All students were fantastic and ended up jointly winning the runner up competition. Well done to all involved.
We are currently using some of our PE funding to upgrade the playground makings. This project aims to give class Teachers more outdoor learning opportunities along with offering more space and sports for PE.
Date reminder - on the 23rd of March we will host Goldington Green Academy in a football fixture for the Year 5 & 6 boys.
This week we take a look at the Incredibles Friday PE lesson, after completing our yoga scheme of work we took a vote from the class to decide what our Friday PE lesson would be covering until the half-term break. The Incredibles decided Dodgeball was the sport of choice!
In today's lesson our objective was to develop throwing at a moving target. We discussed why being able to aim at a moving target was important in a game of Dodgeball. The Incredibles worked in pairs with one Dodgeball and one hoop, pupil A holds the hoop in varying positions for pupil B to try and throw the ball through before swapping roles. This activity was progressed by pupil A slowly moving the hoop while pupil B attempts to throw the ball through (moving target ) .
Next week in our last Dodgeball lesson we look forward to a Dodgeball tournament to put all the children's skills to the test!
In this week's PE update take a look at our Pre-school and Reception session, our Thursday sessions focused on fundamentals.
Fundamental skills will include balancing, running, changing direction, jumping, hopping and travelling. Children will develop gross motor skills through a range of activities. They will learn how to stay safe using space, working independently and with a partner. It is these fundamental skills that build the foundations for future PE related learning throughout their time at Pinchmill Primary.
We continue with our second unit of invasion games. our lesson objective this week was to develop skills and tactics for stopping goals from being scored. The children’s success criteria for this was to always be ready and to be able to react quickly, when someone is about to shoot, not to be afraid of the ball and to always keep your eye on the ball.
The champions are making brilliant progress during these lessons as you can see from the pictures below.
It's been a busy week for sport and physical activity in school this week. Year 5&6 had their first swimming lesson which was fantastic. All of the children were brilliant in the water and really enjoyed themselves, it was also really nice for staff to be able to see the children take part in this kind of activity again after the last two disrupted and difficult two years.
We have new clubs on a Wednesday and a Thursday this half-term. Wednesday is fit4fun club which is a club exclusive for girls, you will have received information on this in a previous email. The programme is designed to educate the young people on how to live an active healthy lifestyle by providing information on food and drink choices, dealing with stress and introducing them to a variety of new activities. Thursdays we now run a table tennis and curling club. Pictures from our first week of these clubs can be seen below.
Happy new year and welcome back!
It's a new term which means new PE lessons for all classes, this week we would like to show you our year 3&4 Yoga lesson!
Our scheme of work in yoga throughout this half-term will focus on breathing techniques, balances, flexibility, strength and co-ordination while learning to work safely around others. We will also be working on emotional skills which include calmness, focus and confidence.
In our first lesson we discussed the use of the word 'namaste' and what it means. maybe you could quiz your children on this over the weekend?
We used a breathing technique called balloon breathing to get the children to start thinking about what happens to their body when breathing and how we can use breathing as a tool to calm the body and mind.
We then taught the children six different yoga poses from the 'I AM FLOW' sheet, these can be seen in the pictures below. After teaching the poses we then started to try and link these together into a yoga sequence. The children enjoyed the yoga experience and are looking forward to lesson 2 next Friday.
We have also updated our playground sports timetable, these activities are available at break and lunchtimes. We have attached a picture of this for you to look at and be able to see what sports your children can play to keep them active.
Have a great weekend!
This week we focus on our year 5&6 indoor Athletics competition. This is a yearly competition which a large number of schools enter. The boys and girls are split into two groups and take part in their field and track events separately. The track and field events were as follows:
Track Events Field events
1 x 1 relay Chest Push
2 x 2 relay standing long jump
obstacle relay standing triple jump
4 x 1 relay vertical jump
6 lap race Soft javelin
We had a fantastic start on the track coming 1st and 2nd in our first two events. The girls then went over to begin their field events while the boys began their track events. Overall we scored the highest number of points on the track, finishing in the top two positions in most of the races. This was a fantastic effort from the children. It was lovely to see how much the students were enjoying themselves. Once all the boys and girls finished their field and track events it was time for all the schools to gather for the results. After all of their fantastic efforts we managed to come 3rd overall! This is a fantastic achievement, we are incredibly proud of them all. Thank you to all the students for a fantastic morning.
This week in PE we focus on year 3&4 Gymnastics! The focus this week was Jumping and leaping. Our lesson objective was to perform a range of jumps accurately, after our warm up we discussed the success criteria for the lesson which was to be able to explain the correct form for each jump, jump with control, shape our body’s correctly for a range of jumps and to be able to take off and land safely. The jumps we covered this week were straight jumps, tuck jumps and finally a straddle jump.
Next week we look forward to our indoor athletics completion at the Bunyan Centre which is on Thursday 2nd December.
(Year 5&6 AM)
This week in our PE weekly update we focus on our re-arranged football fixture with Goldington Green Academy. Goldington Green have recently won the primary school sports award so we knew for our first fixture this would be a tough test. We played three mini matches 15 minutes each, the first game kicked off and our boys didn't need time to settle in and certainly didn't show any nerves. Tackles flying in, particularly from our pairing defenders Ben and Theo, Goldington took the lead to go 1-0 up but this didn't seem to phase the Pinchmill boys who shortly after made it 1-1, with a lovely strike from Bruklinas. Pinchmill then added to their first goal to take the lead 2-1, again Bruklinas the scorer. As the first match came to a close Goldington started to send more players forward and after repeated attacking finally got the break through to make it 2-2, final whistle for the first match and finishes 2-2! A fantastic result in our first game playing a team who have played regular football outside of school sport.
We lost our final two games 4-1 and 4-2, with great play seen in both. Some great moments from our players who were taking part in their first ever football match. some of these included Elijah playing in goal, shared with Jack, both making some fantastic saves which were certainly enjoyed by the crowd watching. Oliver, Jesse and Talon all playing fantastically well to compete with strong players.
Goal scorers : Bruklinas - 4
Alfie - 1
I would like to thank all the players from both sides for what was a brilliant evening of football and one we will be sure to arrange again soon. Thanks to Stuart from Goldington for making the trip over. Lastly thank you for all the support we received from parents coming to watch, I know from speaking to the boys this made the match extra special for them.
have a fun weekend!
This week KS1 had their first Sports Festival. The festival focused on multi-skills which included speed bounce, golf , jumping , balance , dribbling a football , throwing and long jump.
All the children had a fantastic experience and as always did the school proud! They even got a double decker bus to themselves!!
Well done KS1 fantastic work!
Next week we look forward to our rearranged fixture with Goldington green.
Welcome back! I hope you have all enjoyed a restful week away from school and of course enjoyed some Halloween treats.
As its a new half-term all of the students subjects in PE have now been rotated please see our PE curriculum maps on the website to keep up to date with what your child is learning in PE each half-term. This week we show you the year 3&4 football lesson. The lesson objective this week was to develop dribbling while keeping control of the football. We discussed and recapped all football key skills that we cover to refresh the minds of what football is and how we play. As you can see from the pictures we created triangles with cones and challenged the students to dribble around them without touching the cones, this was then progressed into stopping the ball when dribbling and discussed how to do this correctly. We finished the lesson with a dribbling competition with two teams attempting to once again dribbling around our triangle shapes but then collect a bean bag from the end of the hall and get back to their team without dropping. ( bean bags on head ) A fun way to finish a great lesson well done to all students a brilliant first football lesson to start the half-term.

What a great finish to what has been a half-term to be proud of for all the children in PE at Pinchmill.
This week saw our year 3&4's take the trip over to Sharnbrook for their Tag-rugby and orienteering competition. Our Tag-rugby squad was made up of mainly year 3 students, who went on to win their first match 4-2! over the rest of the morning they didn't manage to pick up anymore victorys however the skills and try's scored were fantastic! We had the youngest squad by quite a way so to be able to compete in every match was a credit to the children!
One of our young rugby stars was picked out for his determination and received a special award! Well done Adam, possibly a future England rugby star? Our orienteering team managed to win their competition! Being the only school to finish all activities and tasks. We had a second student receive an award for team work which was presented at the end of the competition. Well done to both teams!
Half-term also sees the end to our Thursday Benchball club, thank you to all students that took part we had over 20 students sign up.
Mr Phelan's Thursday after school club will continue after half-term, this will be a Tag-rugby club for years 2-6.

Thank you to all students for their efforts this half-term its been a very busy one but one to be very proud of. Enjoy a restful half-term.
As we head closer to the half-term break PE continues to be very busy for us at Pinchmill. This week saw us travel to Lincroft for a football competition. Our boys played fantastically, we were extremely proud of them all. After losing their first game they went on to win the next two including a 7-0 victory!! We also played against Goldington Green Academy who we host next week in a mid-week fixture, the game ended 0-0! The boys grew in confidence throughout the morning, and we saw a range of goal scorers. We won our final match against Brickhill Primary 1-0, who up to this point hadn't lost a single game! A fantastic morning for the school and for all those who took part. We finished in 4th place overall. We are looking forward to next week, which brings us our first home football fixture along with a year 3&4 Multi-skills festival.
Tuesday 5th October 2021 saw us visit Scott primary school for our year 5&6 Tag-Rugby competition. The weather held off for us which was a bonus!
The boys and girls were split into two separate competitions. Both teams played fantastically well considering this was our first sports festival in over a year! Great passing and tagging on display.
Both teams ending up winning half of their games and scoring plenty of try's in doing so! One of the girls matches ended up being 8-1 to Pinchmill!!!
It really was fantastic seeing our children thrive playing again at sports festivals and each and every student did themselves proud. Well done to all that took part and we look forward to next week where the year 5 boys ( along with some year 6's ) take part in a football competition.
This week we hosted our OAA event which was lead by our year 6 sports leaders. They delivered a range of orienteering activities to year 5,4 and 3. The activities focused on team work and problem solving. This was our sports leaders second event out of six which they need to complete by the end of the school year, which also means they have all received a bronze certificate. Well done to all our sports leaders and thank you to years 3,4 and 5 for taking part!
next stop.... tag-rugby on Tuesday @ Bedford modern!
This week in PE the focus within basketball for year 3 -6 was learning to use their body as a shield to protect the ball from an opponent. The students practised this in a range of situations including 1 V 1 and also in bigger groups. We also discussed other ways of keeping possession of the ball in a match situation. Well done to all classes involved another fab week of PE!
Yesterday our year 6's started their leadership training! This included two hours of theory work with a 45-minute practical session which included taking the year 2's for a PE session. Thank you to school sports partnership for coming in to deliver a great training session!
