Sports at Wickersley Northfield
At Wickersley Northfield we provide a wide range of different sporting opportunities for our children, from competing against their personal best results to competing at local and regional finals.
We have before and after school clubs run by Live and Learn and Rugby Tots, providing children with access to a range of different sports and activities.
We have our activity track where KS1 children complete the daily mile in an afternoon and KS2 children can use it during their playtimes.
This year we have been awarded the Silver School Games Award.
What are your children learning in PE this term?
Children in Year 1 to Year 6 have two PE sessions each week. One is taught by their class teacher and one is taught during PPA. This means they will be learning two different sports or sets of skills each half term.
Click on the links below to see that they will be learning this half term.
Each year we are given Sports Premium Funding from the Government to spend on our sports and activities within school. This years funding totaled £19600 and has been spent on PE CPD, coaching sessions for sports teams, Live and Learn Clubs, attendance at sports festivals and our new KS1 playground development.

Intra-School Competitive Sport
Level 0 Competitions
This year all children in KS2 are going to be competing in a level 0 competition (aiming to beat their own personal bests). Children will be completing a timed run around our running track each half term and recording their own personal times on their own record cards, aiming to improve their time each run.
Level 1 Competitions
Each half term every child in KS2 will have the opportunity to take part in a competitive sporting event. Working within their class or year group there will be a competition (round robin type of event) based on the sport or skill they have been learning in the previous few weeks.
