Team CH worked extremely hard in their PE lesson this week and therefore deservedly picked up the PE class of the week award. The children worked on their balancing skills individually and then with a partner.
The children seemed to really enjoy the warm up Mr. Men game, I would call out a Mr. Men character, then the children would have to perform that movement/action to the character I shout out. For example- Mr. Slow, the children would walk round slowly. Or Mr. Rush the children would walk round quickly. Mr. Happy went down well the children would walk around with a huge smile on their face!
Fantastic from Team CH
A huge well done to the children in Team AC. Everyone always remembers to bring their PE kit. No one in this class ever really forgets to bring it, which is a great achievement. The children know they are expected to bring it on Monday and take it on home on Friday for washing. Massive thanks to parents/guardians for the support with supplying PE kit across all classes.
Well done to everyone involved in Team AC, outstanding!
Congratulations to Team JD who won the PE class of the week award last week. The class have been working extremely hard on their new topic, which is athletics. Team JD participated in a relay lesson, the focus was to pass the baton on using the correct technique!
Outstanding Team JD, you fully deserved the award.
Keep up the hard work.
Since returning to school in September following partial school closures due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been working hard to identify the areas of learning individual pupils may need to catch up on. As always, we are making core subjects the priority - particularly the basic skills of numeracy and literacy. However here at Wombwell Park Street, we are passionate about our broad, balanced and ambitious curriculum offer and feel now more than ever pupils need the opportunity to engage in a wide range of learning opportunities. Children will be accessing the full range of curriculum subjects this year. During the autumn and spring term subject leaders will be prioritising the key learning objectives and vocabulary to be covered in each subject. Class teachers will plan a range of integrated projects and lessons to ensure that all subjects are covered each term although there may be some reduction in frequency and objectives in the foundation subjects to allow pupils to catch up missed learning in the core subjects. By no later than summer term 2021 we are planning to be teaching the full range of subjects in their entirety as detailed in our comprehensive subject overviews. If you wish to discuss our current curriculum provision further do not hesitate to contact school and Mrs Longden Deputy Head can provide further information. Should you need any further information relating to provision in PE, Miss Garratt and Mrs Petitt will be happy to answer any questions.
Every class has been working extremely hard in their chosen sport/ activity over the past couple of weeks. We have been able to get outside on the courts and field. A quick reminder that as the weather starts to turn and it gets colder if parents/carers could supply children with a jacket and jogger bottoms, this will be very much appreciated! Any problems regarding this, please get in touch.
The children have been phenomenal and we are seeing clear development in each class! All pupils definitely seem to enjoy participating in PE, which shows that we are going in the right direction!
Well done to all, we will continue to set high standards right through school in PE.

Our awards for excelling in PE have started again over the past couple of weeks. Well done to Team CT, who won it this week after working extremely hard in the two lessons they participated in. Keep it up team CT! Also a special mention to team AF and LL who have also won the award.
PE is a statutory part of the curriculum and children are entitled to 2 hours of PE each week from KS1 upwards.
As you will be aware from Mrs Lawson’s letter last week, it is compulsory that children are required to have their PE kit in school. Our uniform policy states that:
‘The school has adopted the following uniform for PE lessons:
The system is was and will continue to be closely monitored. Therefore, if a pupil does not have the required kit or cannot remove earrings, then this will result in an initial verbal reminder to the child, followed by a letter to parents/carers if the reminder proves to be unsuccessful.
We really appreciate those who do bring their PE kits to school religiously and want to make sure that this does not go unnoticed; therefore children who bring their PE kits every week will be rewarded with Dojo Points and will be invited to a sporting session with Mr Smith at the end of the each term.
It is recommended that PE kits are brought to school on a Monday and left until Friday in case PE slots are changed or there are extra sporting activities taking place that week.
Thank you for your support and understanding. If you have any concerns or questions please feel free to contact school.

Hi Park Street,
Here is a timetable of activities produced by Team+ that you could do over the holidays. It's not an expectation at all, just some ideas for yourselves and your family.
Miss Garratt and Mr Smith
Unfortunately, this year, Beat the Street cannot take place in the same way that it did last year. Instead, Beat the Street have created a ‘Barnsley Summer Challenge’ to help keep you and your family active over the summer. If you would like to take part, the challenge begins next Monday (13th July). Take a look at the attachment that contains all the information you need. To those who are taking part, good luck!
