Mrs Kernoghan has been busy in the Spring term training up the KS1 Little Leaders. The children had sessions on leadership, teamwork, sports equipment and setting up multi-skill games. The children chosen will help out in KS1 with sporting events, active playtimes and the promotion of sport in St Wilfrid’s.
”sport is an important part of our school and we can now help to keep KS1 active and enjoying games”
”I am really happy to be a Little Leader so I can help children make friends and have fun together”
PE is an important part of the wider curriculum at St Wilfrid's. We understand high quality PE helps boost children's confidence, builds teamwork skills and class togetherness and will help children begin a life long journey of sporting passion.

Some of the children took part in an Angmering Cluster Schools World Cup day this week. The day was split into sections for year 1 and 2, years 3 and 4 and years 5 and 6. Years 1 and 2 began with some football skills practice and then played some mini games. Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 were part of a tournament. All the children gave their all and had fun especially the girls for whom this was their first taste of competitive football.
"It was so much fun and we knew what to do because we have been learning to play football in PE!"
"I think we worked really well as a team and supported each other"
Our two bronze ambassadors helped throughout the day, coaching and supporting the children.
The children really enjoyed the day and the sun shone for us
On Monday 18th June St Wilfrid's held their school games morning. The morning saw the children take part in numerous events for their school house teams. They worked in their key stages to score as many points as they could for their house. The morning was filled with events using skills the children have been leaning in their PE lessons across the school year including football, netball, hockey, rugby and athletics. The year 5 play pals helped to run the KS1 event and the children had a great morning. The children displayed the spirit of the school games including teamwork, honesty, determination, passion, respect and self-belief.
