Physical Education

Hope School Summer Challenge


As you will all be aware recent events have led to us not having a Sports Day this year. This is always one of the most exciting and enjoyable days of the year and seeing everyone participate, support each other and achieve is a wonderful experience to share. Now, even though we cannot have a traditional Sports Day we can still take part in some physical activity to challenge and test ourselves. I am inviting you to take part in the Hope School Summer Challenge! There are 5 challenges to complete, and for each one you complete you will receive a certificate with special awards for anyone who can complete all 5 challenges. 


Below are explanations for each challenge. Once you have completed these email a member of staff and share your achievement with them, or make a note and share it with us when we are back together in the new school year.


Don't worry about not measuring your runs, throws and jumps with a tape measure; get creative! You can measure by counting how long a run took you, measure a throw using steps, and measure when you take off and land using sticks! The most important thing is having a go and enjoying being active!

Run Challenge
Travel as fast as you can between two points, just measure how far you run and how long it takes! This can be done in a garden, at the park or in your local area. 
Jump challenge
Use a stick to mark your take off and jump from two feet as far forward as you can. Measure how far you jump by any means necessary and share your distance with us! 
Throw challenge 
Choose an object to throw, and aiming into a space throw it as far as you can. Measure the distance from where you threw from, and where your object landed. 
Skill challenge
Have you learnt a new sporty skill since we were last in school? Have you improved on something that you could already do? If not now is the time to do this, challenge yourself and tell us what you have been practicing and mastering! 
Kindness challenge 
One of the best elements of Sports Day is how we all support and help each other. Can you show some one some kindness? Perhaps you could teach a younger sibling a skill? Or include them in your game? Or pick up some litter you see at the park? It doesn’t matter what you do, as long as you are helping someone else. 

Physical Education is a vital part of the curriculum at Hope, not just from a learning perspective, but it can improve pupil resilience, support mental health and physical well being and increase readiness for learning.


Pupils are encourage to take part in PE lessons at a level that is suitable for their individual needs, and also to take part in a variety of roles.


Whilst pupils take part in a traditional PE curriculum, we also offer a range of alternate activities which has seen pupils this year participate in, Aerial Ninjas and Forest school.


All pupils will take part in swimming lessons. Lessons take place on a Friday and are held at Garston baths. When your child/ charges' class is attending they will need to bring a swimming kit to school, consisting of; swimming costume, a towel and goggles if preferred.


All pupils will take part in Forest School over the course of the school year. These sessions are hosted by Branching Out, and the lead practitioner Froo will accommodate pupils on a site in Woolton Woods. Pupils will need to bring a change of clothes when they attend, including spare socks and trainers/ walking boots.

Celebrating our success


At Hope School we try to achieve a community of mutual respect, one way in which we achieve this is by celebrating our own success as well as others.

We try to make physical exercise as engaging as possible by offering a wide selection of activities.
