Sport and PE
Physical activity not only improves health, reduces stress and improves concentration, but also promotes correct physical growth and development. Exercise has a positive influence on academic achievement, emotional stability and interaction with others.
Through sport and other physical activities at Tattershall Primary, our children will learn about their responsibilities both as individuals and members of groups and teams. They learn to cooperate and to compete fairly, understanding their own and other’s roles.
Our aim is that; through physical education we teach and develop physical competence, an appreciation of skilled and creative performances, and understanding of basic principles of ‘fair play’ and improve inter personal skills.
Ten children from Year 3 and 4 took part in a Rugby Festival on Friday 22nd November. The children got chance to play a variety of tag rugby themed games allowing them to enhance their skills.
