In November 2016 four of our of our year 5/6 children were chosen to attend ‘Dare to Aspire’, an hour long motivational presentation delivered by George Fouche, which challenges students to look at the qualities needed to become successful, how to overcome hardships and to follow their dreams. The presentation by George Fouche, a former premiership and international rugby player, was extremely inspirational. The children that attended said, “We are going to push ourselves as far as we can and no matter what happens in life we will keep trying.” The two boys also enjoyed it because they are both keen rugby players. After returning to school we looked at the qualities that are needed to achieve our full potential and also carried out a team building exercise in which the children had to work together to build a tower using only spaghetti and marshmallows. Each child took on a role, looking at emotions within the group, the best things, the negative things and things that could be improved. After the activity the children said that they started off well working as a team, but when things started to go wrong they stopped working as a team and got frustrated with each other. Despite some problems, the children persevered, eventually completing their tower successfully.

In April 2013, the Government announced funding of £150 million for P.E. and Sport in primary schools. Each school will receive approximately £9,250 in each of the next two academic years (2013/2014 and 2014/2015).

At our school we are using this funding to improve the provision of P.E. and Sport. Please download the attachment to find out how the money is being used and how it is having a positive impact on P.E. and Sport in our school.

Key Stage Two playtime activities 14/03/16

On Wednesday 9th march a group of our Year 5 students went to Woodchurch High School to take part in the Everton FC football tournament. The team really done Lingham proud during the event, even when things weren’t going to plan the group stuck together as a team and didn’t let their heads go down and played until the final whistle. This tournament was an important stepping stone for moving forward because it give them a chance to understand how a match is run, being the first time most of the players have played in a competitive match before.

We’d like to say a huge thank you for everybody that took part and also a huge thanks to the parents for supporting the children gracefully.
