Physical education

“When it comes to health and well-being, regular exercise is about as close to a magic potion as you can get”

Thich Nhat Hanh

At Snaresbrook Primary School, we aim to provide a high-quality PE curriculum that provides enjoyment for pupils from Reception to Year 6 and allows them to become physically confident. By providing opportunities for pupils to experience a range of physically-demanding activities we intend that our curriculum supports the development of their health, fitness and wellbeing and inspires children to succeed and excel in sport.

How is PE implemented?

Snaresbrook’s PE curriculum provides enjoyable and challenging learning through a range of activities including: invasion games, net and wall games, strike and field games, as well as gymnastics, dance, swimming and outdoor and adventure activities.

Our provision consists of:

* One hour of PE for Early Years Foundation Stage/Key Stage 1 (Nursery to Year 2)

* Two hours of PE for Key Stage 2 (Years 3 to 6)

Lessons are carefully planned and delivered by class teachers.

We also offer a range of clubs for different ages and aim to take part in competitive sporting events and interschool competitions across Redbridge borough and London.

Cross Country 2022

As you know, our cross country runners were outstanding in their individual events at Fairlop Waters in October. We now have even more good news in the team event. The individual scores have been collated by Redbridge and schools have been given an overall borough result. I am delighted to announce that our Year 5 and 6 boys and Year 5 and 6 girls finished in the silver medal position and our Year 3 and 4 mixed team finished first winning the gold medal. An amazing result - what a great team. 

I'd also like to wish our runners, who were selected from the cross country event.

Snaresbrook Primary Rugby Team

On Wednesday 16th of November, Ms. Sells and Mr. Sullivan took a mixed team of year 5/6 children to a rugby tournament at Wanstead Rugby Club. Our team competed against 14 other schools in the borough and showed incredible skill and team work. We finished top of our group of 7 and made it through to the semifinals. Unfortunately, a defeat of 4-2 to Bancrofts saw us out of the gold and silver medal position. We played Nightingale A Team in the bronze medal game and drew 4-4. It could have gone either way but we lost the game on the golden goal, finishing in fourth place overall. Although we were all disappointed not to come away with a medal, to place fourth was an amazing achievement for our first competitive tournament. Well done Team Snaresbrook - you were an absolute credit to this school.

Girls Football Festival - International Women's Day

Some of our year 3 and year 4 girls had a fantastic day celebrating International Women's Day on the 8th March with a girls' football festival at Frenford FC. They took part in skills training and some friendly matches to celebrate the growth and success of girls' football in East London. 

Our children were lucky enough to be joined by some celebrity faces from the football world and took part in filming for The One Show and interviewing by the FA. They rubbed shoulders with Kelly Smith and Baroness Campbell, Sarena Weigman signed their shirts and Ian Wright played football with them! All of the girls demonstrated some impressive football skills and great teamwork and they were all a credit to Snaresbrook Primary School. An amazing opportunity for our girls - one that they will never forget.

Road Safety Workshop - Play in a Day

This all-action performance workshop was perfect for our students, exploring issues around road safety. In addition to pedestrian behaviour and roadside discipline we plunged into the wonderful world of independent travel, using public transport and in-vehicle behaviour. What particular hazards are there where you live? Where is it safest to cross the road and why? What types of crossings are there and how do they work? What if there aren't any official crossings nearby..? These were the themes that 5BF worked through to put together their 'Play in a Day' all about road safety. ​

The children in the Key Stage 1 Sports Council decided to undertake a charitable task. They discussed who was most in need of help, and decided that with the upcoming cold weather, we should collect warm clothing to donate to the less fortunate.
