Check out just some of the wonderful activities our children get up to in PE. Please visit our Twitter and Flickr feeds for more fantastic activities.

Leap Dance Competition – WINNERS!

Increased participation in competitive sport.

A huge congratulations to our talented Year 5 and Year 6 pupils who participated in a schools Dance Competition run by @Leapclasses. Our children did wonderfully well, winning individual awards and the overall competition. As part of our continuous drive to improve physical education in our school, we try to provide as many opportunities for our pupils to participate in competitive sport. This is the first time we have competed in a dance competition but it certainly won’t be the last! A big thank you to Miss Waters for training the children. Well done!



Year 6 Outdoor Education/Residential

Providing broader experiences of a range of sports and activities.

Earlier this term, our Year 6 pupils visited an adventure centre in the Lake District for a two night residential. The children participated in tomahawk throwing, archery, gauntlet and a whole host of other exciting activities. The trip proved to be a huge hit and epitomised what we are all about at Florence Melly… creating memorable experiences for our pupils!

Rugby League Takes Over Florence Melly!

The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity.

Ahead of ‘The Magic Weekend’ at Anfield, super league club Wigan Warriors visited our school and delivered brilliant coaching sessions to pupils across the school, where for some it was their first taste of rugby. We were also donated several tickets for the rugby Magic Weekend via Red Neighbours, so some lucky pupils got to enjoy a taste of live rugby league!


Specialist Gymnastics Teaching – CPD for our Staff

Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of staff in teaching PE and sport.

A huge thank you to Mrs Dentith our PE Subject Lead for organising a special gymnastics competition alongside Leap (a company who come into school and provide specialist gymnastic teaching). A team participated in a range of gymnastics events and eventually won the gold medal in the floor element. We are super proud of their achievement! Well done to all involved! All of our pupils have participated in expert gymnastics lessons this academic year and our staff have observed, analysed and discussed effective teaching methods with the specialist teacher so that high quality gymnastics teaching is sustainable in our school in the future.

Judo Education Assembly, Workshops and After-School Extra-Curricular Club

Raising the profile of PE and Sport across the school.

At Florence Melly we’re committed to providing the best possible opportunities to our pupils in all areas of the curriculum and PE is no different. Mrs Dentith, our PE Coordinator has set out a new plan to improve PE and Sport across our school. As part of this plan, our pupils had the opportunity to participate in an extra-curricular Judo club – something we have never offered in our school before. To introduce the pupils to Judo, we received a masterclass assembly and it went down a treat!
