We recognise that there are many benefits to ensuring that all children participate in sports or other physical activities:
Our intention is to use additional funding in three ways:
Sport Premium Funding is universal and therefore our aim will be for maximum benefit for all our pupils, including and especially those that may not ordinarily see themselves as ‘sporty’.
Our typical current provision includes:
We currently have 67% of our pupils in year 6 who can swim a distance of 25 meters. Of this 67% 100% of them can swim more than one stroke. No children in year 6 are able to perform a safe rescue in different water based situations.
#WPSYY2 were kept extremely busy during their day at Ripon Museum and showed great perseverance, whilst working in the laundry room and washing all of the Victorian clothes. #WPSYHistory #Woodthorpecharacter
Year 2 had a wonderful day last week at Ripon Museum. We started our day, in the Victorian school room and showed great determination during our handwriting lesson. #WPSYY2 #WPSYHistory #Woodthorpecharacter
To finish off our science topic ‘seasonal changes’, Year 1 proudly presented their own weather forecast! We used our prior knowledge of measuring the temperature and stating the different types of weather. ☀️ 💨 🌧️ #WPSYY1 #WPSYScience #Woodthorpecharacter
Would we have liked to go to school in the past? #WPSYY2 enjoyed finding out about Victorian classrooms; chanting times tables, practising our reading and writing on slate instead of paper. We were very respectful to the school mistress! #WPSYHistory #woodthorpecharacter
