Pupils in all year groups experience PE lessons each week. The sporting facilities available at Ashley Junior School, coupled with the enthusiasm of the staff, mean that we are able to offer a wide range of sporting activities to our children. Children have at least 2 hours of active learning a week.
We are extremely fortunate to have a well-equipped gymnasium as well as a large hall. The school field is huge and can accommodate many facilities. We participate in a wide range of sporting competitions as part of our involvement in the New Forest Sports Partnership.
Children can work towards our sports awards – ‘Fit for Learning’ – which leads to becoming a Sports Ambassador for the school. We want as many children as possible participating in the many opportunities offered and leading active lives.
Real PE at home is now available to individual families in addition to all schools
Individual families can now receive a password to access our real PE at home online resources, even if their school hasn’t signed up. Below are suggested text and details that you can share with direct with your family groups and communities. This maybe of interest to those of you who have wider remits across health and local authorities!
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.
