Physical Education

Culmstock Primary School prides themselves on providing a wealth of sporting opportunities to children of all ages, with the aim of giving our children the skills and knowledge to keep themselves fit and healthy throughout life. We want to help children find physical activities, whether they be through team sports, individual sports, dance, gymnastics or fitness, that they enjoy and want to carry on partaking in.

We have brilliant links with Uffculme secondary school who regularly hold sporting events for their feeder schools where we endeavour to enter teams into all on offer. These include football, netball, tennis, tag rugby, hockey, athletics, multi-skills, orienteering, cross-country, golf, rounders and cricket.

In the autumn term, class 3 is visited by Mr Menhenniott from Blundell’s school who puts the children through their paces in a short series of fun, invasion game-style skills. In the summer term, our local Chance to Shine Cricket instructors come into school to lead afternoon sessions with two of our schools, as well as taster sessions for our younger children.

For our year 6’s we also offer them the opportunity to take part in the Exmoor Challenge which sees them take on practice walks across a number of months with the final aim of completing a 16 mile walk in teams of 4.

One of our most favourite events of the year that we offer is our sports day. Here, our houses compete against each other showing great sportsmanship, team work, friendship and support to one another in order to win our house cup. We have individual and small team races from our pre-school up to year 6 as well as some fun whole house races at the end of the afternoon. Nothing makes us prouder than seeing our children take part, smiling and having fun!

We run an in house after-school football (Y3-6) and netball (Y5-6) club where we take part in both the yearly football league against other schools and the High 5s netball tournament. Our children take their practice very seriously and we have regularly made it through to both of these finals.

We also offer externally run after school clubs in gymnastics (Premier Sports), football (Saints South West) and Tennis/Dodgeball (Sporty Stars).
