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:

Parent email: firstname.lastname@example.org
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.

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.
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:
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:
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 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.

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.
