Welcome to the P.E Page

At St Helen’s we believe that P.E. is a vital part of the school curriculum and we aim to give all our children the chance to play and compete in as wide a range of sports as we possibly can. As well as a broad selection of sports being taught through P.E. lessons the team at St Helen’s also offers a diverse and exciting range of extra curricular clubs for children from all year groups.

P.E. is not only about playing sport though, it helps teach the children the importance of healthy lifestyles and improves their learning skills and concentration for lessons.

Sports also play a vital role in maintaining good mental health. Some of our staff our trained in teaching Yoga to children and parents and we encourage physical activity at lunchtime to recharge the batteries.

As part of the 'Be The Best You Can Be' initiative children learn about the mental qualities of good sports people - resilience, determination, hard work, team work, good sportsmanship, courage and respect.

Below is an outline of some of the sports that the children are involved in during the year at St Helen’s.

Athletics, Basketball, Cricket, Cross Country, Football, Gymnastics, Handball, Hockey, Netball, Rounders, Squash, Swimming, Tag Rugby ,Tennis, Dodge ball, Dance, and Yoga

Sporting Heroes

Some of our children develop into amazing "Sporting Heroes" in their time at St Helen's!  Often they have aspirations for following a sporting career.  They are equally as determined with their academic studies too.  Here are some.

Bonnie (Year 5) said:
"I tried squash when Mrs Ison came in to give us a taster session.  I loved it and went to the club.  I enjoyed competing for the school in Year 4 and am looking forward to representing Suffolk in the U11's team in the National Final."
