Dear Parents/Carers,

We hope that you had a fun and active Easter break and a successful first week back to home learning.

On the school website is a large collection of websites and apps that we have put together to give you lots of resources to keep active.

As well as these links, we have signed up to real PE at home – online learning resources that we will have access to for the duration of school closures.

Real PE at home includes an online programme which supports families to be active, play and learn together. It includes a programme specifically for children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 with 12 themes, 6 areas, over 250 activities and challenges and 1000s of hours of fun and activity.

For children in Key Stage 2 there are carefully selected personal best challenges, skills and games designed for the home and garden. Daily and weekly guidance is provided for both programmes in addition to an option to choose your own themes and activities.

There are so many benefits to being active, not only to our physical wellbeing but also to our emotional and mental health, especially in such testing times for all of us. We hope that the ideas help support you and your family to stay fit and healthy in the coming months. Here are the details to access real PE at home:

 

The website address is: home.jasmineactive.com

Parent email: parent@nortonroad-1.com

Password:  nortonroad

 

On the website, there are timetables that you can follow if you wish to do so or you and pick and chose different activities to suit you and your family.

As well as developing physical fitness and physical literacy, lots of other skills can be developed though the activities provided. As well as opportunities to develop Maths and English skills, there are musical and creative activities too.

 

Yours sincerely

 

Mrs. L. Billington

Dear Norton Road Families,

 

In these challenging times and with the restrictions of staying within our own homes, it is very important now more than ever that we make time for and encourage our children to keep fit.

I have included an extensive but not exhaustive list of online tools and resources that you can access at home to allow you and your children to enjoy some exercise and activities and have fun at the same time.

It is recommended that children should take part in at least 60 minutes of physical activity each day and these activities will help you to try and work towards this in an enjoyable way.

We hope that you are all keeping safe and that you enjoy taking part in these activities

 

Take care and stay safe

Sports and PE Update - December 2019

 

It has been a great start to the year for PE and school sports in Norton Road. Thank you to all children, parent and staff for making the activities and events in and out of school a great success.

PE Kit

We would like to thank all parents and carers for ensuring that children have the correct PE kit and are wearing it to school on the appropriate days.  A special well done to our year 1 children, as this is their first time wearing their PE kit to school and they have done extremely well with their new routine.

I would like to take this opportunity to remind you of the school’s PE kit. Your child needs to be wearing:

  • Plain black jogging bottoms (with no logos or coloured detailing)
  • Plain white crew neck T-shirt (round neck)
  • School sweatshirt or fleece
    Or
  • Plain black or black school logoed hoodie.
  • Black or white sports trainers – plimsolls or fashion trainers do not offer the correct foot support needed for physical activity.
  • All jewellery must be removed. If your child’s earrings cannot be removed, for whatever reason, you will need to provide them with micro-pore tape to cover them with.

 

We appreciate your support in ensuring that your child looks as smart on PE days as they do every other school day.

 

After School Sports Clubs

After a successful term of after school sports clubs, we look forward to our new sessions starting in January.  We have the following clubs running in spring term:

  • KS1 multi skills – Monday pm
  • KS2 cricket club- Wednesday pm
  • KS 2 football club- Friday pm

Letters for these clubs have already been sent home and confirmation of places will be sent out once we return in January.

 

Year 5 Sports Hall Athletics

A group of 20 children, from year 5, attended thee Sports Hall Athletics competition back in October.   All children participated in a range of track and field events against children from other Luton Schools.  They worked extremely hard and showed great determination.  Well done to those children for demonstrating excellent school and school sports values.

 

Intra-School Competitions

Intra- school competitions are those competitions that take place between children in our own school.

All children in Key Stage 2 have had the opportunity to take part in a competition this term. Years, 4, 5 and 6 played some exciting and fast paced games of quick cricket.  Year 3 competed against each other in a range of multi skill activities.  Not only did they compete for points for their team, but they also had the opportunity for personal challenge by repeating each station to improve on their own personal score. There will be more opportunities for competition in both KS1 and KS2 as we progress throughout the year.

 

Sport England Survey

Thank you to all of the randomly selected children in years 1, 3 and 5, as well as the parents of those selected year 1 children for taking part in the Sport England survey about sport and physical Activity.  We appreciate your time and effort.

 

Healthy Me Week

The week beginning 27th January 2020 will be Norton Road’s healthy living week.  The theme for the week is Healthy Me.  Throughout the week there will be a range of activities taking place which will teach the children the importance of living healthy lives including healthy eating, exercise, hygiene and emotional well – being.  More information will follow in the new term.

 

We hope that all children and their families have an enjoyable Christmas break and we look forward to an active and healthy new year.

 

 

Sports and PE update- October 2019

 

Welcome back!  It’s been a great start to the year for PE and Sport at Norton Road Primary School. Children have returned to school, looking great in their school PE kit, on their PE days.  I would like to remind you at this point, that school PE kit should consist of plain black unbranded jogging bottoms, leggings or shorts, plain white crew neck t-shirt and either a school jumper, fleece or black logoed hoodie (all available to order from the school office) or a plain black zip up hoodie.  Children should be wearing trainers to school in with their PE kit.  Please do not send your child to school in plimsolls as they are not suitable for the playground and do not offer the support needed for physical activity.

 

All year groups have had an excellent start to the year in their PE lessons, despite the unpredictable weather.  A big well done to all the children for their great behaviour and enthusiasm in lessons. 

 

Year 5 and Year 6 have been lucky enough to have taken part in cricket competitions within their own year groups.  They had a great time learning a new style of cricket competition and enjoyed the challenge of competing as a team to score points.  All teams played fantastically with great teamwork and support shown towards each other.

 

Our school has been selected, once again, to take part in the Sport England Active Lifestyles survey.  This is a great opportunity for us to see what our children think of PE and Sport in school as well as giving us a view of what activities and sports they enjoy participating in outside of school.  Year groups have been selected at random to take part and more details will be sent out to the relevant classes following the half term break

 

We are looking forward to an active and fun end to 2019 as we return after the half term break.

Summer Term School Sports

KS2 mixed football

Congratulations to our mixed year 4 and 5 team who won every game they played and the whole competition.

Not only did they play some fantastic football but were commended on their impeccable manners and great sportsmanship.

Year 5 Rounders

A group of year 5 children spent the afternoon at William Austin Junior School.  They all played extremely well, showing great teamwork and perseverance and came 3rd in their group, narrowly missing the final stages.

Year 6 cricket

Well done to the boys from Year 6 who spent the best part of a day at Luton Town and Indians Cricket club, playing against other local schools. The boys worked very hard and had a great day, finishing 6th in their group.  All involved were living our school values and were a credit to the school.

Year 5 Quad Kids athletics

Four boys and four girls from year 5 took part in an athletic competition. They demonstrated their skills in four events, 100m sprint, standing long jump, vortex howler throw and a tough 600m distance run.  The children did themselves and the school proud with their excellent behaviour and determination. Well done to our team, who came 15th overall.

Year 3 tri golf

A great effort from our group of year 3’s at the Tri-Golf festival. They had a lovely afternoon learning and practising golf skills in a variety of activities, coming 14th overall. They worked hard, developed skills and most importantly, they had fun.

Year 4 Rounders Festival

A group of boys and girls from Year 4, enjoyed an afternoon out at Bramingham Primary School, playing rounders matches against teams from other local schools. The matches were not scored but the children had lots of fun and showed some excellent skills.

Sports Week

During the week of the 24th of June, School Sports Week, children in KS1 and KS2 made their way over to the field at Gardenia Avenue to take part in their Sports Mornings.  All the children took part in eight different activities where they had to use a range of skills including speed, agility and balance.  Throughout the event, each group were working together as a team to earn points for their Sports House.

The points from every year group have been totalled and we are delighted to announce that the winning house, this year, is BLUE HOUSE.

 

Reception children took part in their own sports day On Friday 5th July. The children had great fun, using the skills that they have been developing throughout the year.

Spring term School Sports

Year 5 girl’s football

The girls from Year 5, had a great afternoon at play football. They had the opportunity to play against teams from other local schools. The girls did extremely well and made it through to the quarter finals. They demonstrated great football skills and excellent teamwork.
