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.
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!
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.
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.
