As our children finally return to their familiar surroundings, Physical Education has never appeared so vital and high profiled as it is now.
It is crucial in terms of fitness, wellbeing: mental health, self-esteem, emotive well-being, spirituality and future expectations and social behaviours.
With this in mind, our PE lessons will seek to reintegrate children into physical activity in a way that suits our children in our community. This will put them in better stead for their summer curriculum.
Although children will be in school, there still remains a number of ways in which they can remain active at home especially as their stamina for physical activity and motivation is nurtured and encouraged.
Youth Sport Trust continues to update their Personal Best Challenges which children can do at home. This is part of the School Games' mission is to help more young people with the opportunity to compete and achieve their Personal Best, with a focus on including competition against oneself and others to improve personal performances. A process rather than the outcome.
Well Schools Promise
We are incredibly proud of you
This last year has been exceptionally difficult. You have shown incredible resilience and adaptability. You have been selfless and put the needs of others before your own. You have made so many sacrifices and yet faced the challenges with strength and determination. There is much you’ve been told you’ve lost, including many weeks of your education, but there is much you have gained. You will emerge from this stronger.
An important and powerful sentiment for all
We look towards a brighter future and the reinstatement of PE at the forefront of the emotional and social well being of our children,
One Piece At A Time
"Life is a giant puzzle. Every day we need to piece
together all of the things that help to make us smile."
Inspired by Children's Mental Health Week, 1st - 7th February, we would like to share a new challenge with you.
Take on the challenge as a whole school and share this journey together...you could even make a beautiful display out of the lovely smiles that your children make.
We will also be tweeting ideas each day throughout February @getset4pe
All you need to do is click on the resource below and share it as far as it can go.

We are delighted to showcase photographs from our Pentathlon Event.
Years 4 and 5 had a fantastic time working their way through a series of activities. Pupils were not only able to participate but some took on the role of 'officiator' and were responsible for time taking and record keeping of scores within their groups.
Many thanks to Teachers and our Sport Impact Representative Matt, alongside Conor, for a successful event and for helping us to do our bit for the borough and getting children active again!
Many children and young people across the UK will be missing out on their usual sport clubs. We’re here to help all young people feel part of a club that helps them develop skills and learn something new. The Youth Sport Trust’s After School Sport Club is about much more than physical fitness. It will help children develop physical literacy and confidence to try lots of new sports, helping all children find a sport for them.
The After School Sport Club will be led by Athlete Mentors from different backgrounds, abilities and sports. Every day at 5pm from 16 November until 18 December, children and young people can join in with the live broadcast for free on our YouTube channel. (Just click on the You Tube link in green to get active!)
Join in the conversation on social using #YSTAfterSchool and tagging @YouthSportTrust across all social media channels. You might need items from around your home for some sessions, but we’ll give some ideas ahead of each club to adapt if you don’t have these items.
The different daily themes are below:
Look out for pictures of our Rosary Pentathlon event with KS2.
As promised, here are some photos from our Cross Country Challenge. This first in a series of virtual competitions organised by Sport Impact to get the Borough of Hounslow active.
Thank you to all in KS2 that took part, it was great to see you out.
Dear Parents and Carers,
This is undoubtedly the most unusual start to an academic year, in education. It is outstanding to see how exceptionally well The Rosary staff and our children have risen to these seriously difficult challenges. A strange but successful start!
Data for children’s activity during lockdown highlights the importance of PE with only 19% of children meeting the recommended physical activity time guidelines during lockdown (7-16 year olds). 43% of children are LESS active than before and 1 in 4 are said to have not engaged in any activity at all.
With this in mind, we at The Rosary have continued to deliver quality PE lessons and activities in collaboration with Sport Impact and Let's Leap. Safety, engagement and the needs of our children remain at the forefront of our minds. Although, inter challenges are still being considered, intra competitions have begun.
Our first begins with our In-house Cross Country Challenge for KS2 in an attempt to get The Borough of Hounslow moving.
Watch out for photos to be released after half term!
In the meantime, Let's Leap have supported our need to get moving with a number of clubs across the school: Judo, dance, multi-sports and football.
Here are some moments captured of Year 3 in Judo.
Sport Impact continue to recommended free resources to help keep children active at home during the Covid-19 outbreak
DEAR PARENTS/CARERS AND CHILDREN,
WE HOPE YOU ARE CONTINUING TO STAY SAFE AND HEALTHY.
SPORT IMPACT CONTINUES TO WORK TIRELESSLY TO SUPPORT PHYSICAL FITNESS AND WELL BEING.
