Fitness log and circuits
Team PE have attached a fitness log for you to keep a record of how you are keeping fit and active this term. Keeping a record will help you stay motivated.
Are you looking for some ideas for circuits, fitness challenges or challenges to do within your family or support bubble?
Have you created your own circuits or exercise? Or perhaps you have got an app or smart device to record your activities?
We would love to hear how you have been keeping active. So please share with us via our email address at firstname.lastname@example.org
At school we use this website for short burst activities within the classroom and so, they are perfect for keeping you active at home too. That's the whole family - so get everyone involved.

Term 6 Week 7
(13.07.20 - 17.07.20)
This week, we will celebrate the brilliant sporting activities that have taken place this year!
Firstly, we hope you enjoy watching the 'Celebration of Sport at VPPS' video below, which Mrs Casling and Mr Kellow created.
Click here for the 'Celebration of Sport at VPPS' video
Ashton Park Sports Partnership Awards
Every year Ashton Park Sports Partnership holds an awards evening where they celebrate sporting achievements from the previous year. This year, they have done it differently and these are the children and teams from Victoria Park who have been nominated and will receive a certificate.
OUTSTANDING YOUNG LEADER OF THE YEAR
We would like to nominate 2 children;
Callum has played a huge role in supporting children as a Games Maker. He is mature, kind and generous and always turns up, blue vested and eager to help. He has successfully refereed the lunchtime football sessions – and we all know what a thankless task refereeing can be!
Jess is kind hearted, resilient and so thoughtful and has been a main helper at lunchtime as a Games Maker with a particular skill of engaging young children. Jess has also been a key player as a sports leader, taking her role seriously, always being ready to help and offering sensible suggestions of how we can encourage others to participate in whole school sports.
ADULT VOLUNTEER AWARD
Bailey is an ex pupil who comes to help us with our larger sporting events. He is an asset to the PE Team and is always a willing helper, contributes to organising events and uses his own initiative when needed. In the house cross country, Bailey not only runs most races as the hare, he also encourages the children at the end of the race. I’d love to know how many miles he ran this year!!
TEAM OF THE YEAR - Achievement
We have nominated the Kwiksticks Team A. This team was made up of 2 experienced players, Fatima and Ashton but also three players who are new to the sport, Sonny, Seb and Priyanka. They showed great determination, team work and co-operation to battle their way, undefeated, through to the finals where they played until the whistle but lost to a better team. They earned a place in the Level 3 games. The real success of this team is that they didn’t know how good they were and just enjoyed the day!
TEAM OF THE YEAR - Values
We have nominated Kwiksticks Team B – this team was made up of 5 children who haven’t represented the school in any other sporting events – Toag, Cohen, Ella, Lily and Minaal. They quickly bonded and showed co-operation, respect and determination throughout, despite losing most of their games. But, most of all, they showed kindness to each other so that no one was disheartened. They all said they had fun and wanted to do to again. Isn’t this what it’s all about?
COACH OF THE YEAR
Mrs Casling – Mr Kellow nominated Mrs Casling for continuing the school sport and PE single handed when he was off with a broken foot.
OUTSTANDING CONTRIBUTION TO SCHOOL SPORT AWARD
Archie – what can we say about Archie and his incredibly supportive family? This year Archie has successfully represented the school in basketball, football and sportshall athletics and would have taken part in every event if we had allowed. He is passionate about sport but also encouraging of others, determined in his desire to do his best and is generally a great person to have on the team. Archie also took part in many of the PE challenges whilst learning from home and took the time to send his achievements to school for the PE Team to see. Archie and his family will be greatly missed by the school but we know that we will continue to hear about Archie’s sporting achievements in the future.
CHAMPAGNE MOMENT OF THE YEAR!
One of our favourite events is the primary schools cross country as we try to take a large group of children and always have lots of enthusiastic parental support, plus you never know what’s going to happen. Our champagne moment was Ludo winning his age group. He is athletic but it takes determination, resilience and a real growth mindset to win an endurance race…and sprint to finish. We don’t think he, or his parents, realised quite how fast or determined he was!
SPECIAL ACHIEVEMENT AWARD (KS1/2/3)
We have chosen children who showed determination and effort completing either the PE challenges or showing how they have kept themselves active during lockdown and a tricky time.
Oli and Freddie created and completed their own ‘lockdown’ PE lesson at home filled with burpees, squats, push- up and stretching. They were inspired by Joe Wickes but put their own spin on it and included their mum. They also included the ever popular bunny hop, which we will include in the curriculum next year, and a chicken dance. A fully rounded PE lesson.
Sabrina and Sofiane showed true school values in their determination and growth mindset when trying to complete the kick and catch challenge set by Mr Kellow.
Ellen and Eve tried nearly every PE challenge both completing Mr Kellow’s step challenge and Mrs Casling’s plank challenge and showing the school value of honesty when submitting their results.
SPORT FOR ALL AWARD – nomination from Victoria Park Primary School
Mr Bailey would like to nominate Paula Casling and George Kellow for their tireless efforts in ensuring every pupil was active and participating in PE both before and after lockdown. They organised and provided CPD and partnership working to ensure our SEND pupils were fully involved in PE lessons in school. After lockdown, their PE challenge videos were aimed at all pupils, with a belief that, while we appreciate everything Joe Wicks stands for, our children needed to see their own PE teachers to inspire them to take part in PE from home.
Celebration of Sport at VPPS
Every term we try to give Sporting Star Awards to children who have shown the school values in their sporting activities. This could be; determination to succeed by practising, resilience and a growth mindset by never giving up, honesty when competing, gratitude and kindness to others in their team, sports coaches, parents and cooperation with other members of a team or class.
In Term 1 & 2 the following children achieved sports awards;
X country - David (resilience)
Tag rugby - Malick (growth mindset)
Swimming- Winnie (determination)
Eve & Samuel - Sportshall (gratitude)
Beya - Basketball & Sportshall (cooperation & determination)
Callum - Basketball (kindness)
We would now like to give out awards to the following children;
Barley - dodgeball for showing resilience and honesty. We would also like to commend Barley for his continual kindness and help as a Games Maker. The playteam and PE team are really proud of you.
Thomas - showed great cooperation and kindness within his year group football team event. He never gave up and inspired others to try their best. Thomas has continued to develop his football skills during lockdown #vphomepe
Shya - She has not only shown her amazing football skills by playing in both her year group football team and the girls football team but she has shown cooperation by having to quickly adapt and develop within her roles.
Oscar - showing kindness and gratitude to his team and coach during his year group football tournament. Plus continuing his sporting achievements in lockdown #vphomepe with a rainbow flick and Challenge 26 hockey skills.
Jackson - A huge thank you from the play team and PE team for helping the younger children to stay active during their lunch break in his role as a Games Maker.
New this year - Our Sporting Stars Always Awards go to...
Fatima, with the most amazing hand -eye coordination and Archie who shines in many sports. They both always give 100% in both PE lessons and Sporting events. Thank you and well done.
We would love to give these awards to every child who has tried their best, overcome adversity or has just made us smile in PE lessons or when representing the school. We can think of many, many examples - you know who you are - well done and thank you.
A special thank you to our sports council and our Games Makers. We couldn’t do it without your help at lunchtime and sporting events.
Finally, thank you to our lovely Year 6s, the PE Team are grateful to have been part of your sporting journey at VPPS and wish you all the best for the future.
(Certificates will be held at school for September if we haven’t been able to give them to you)

New term = new challenge. Read on for details from Wesport our local school games organisers.
In collaboration with your local School Games Organisers, Ashton Park Sports Partnerships, and Rachel Bown, YST Inclusion Lead we are excited to announce our Virtual Summer School Games launching 1st June!
For 5 weeks leading up to our original planned Summer Multi-event on the 7th July we will be launching simple weekly challenges, inclusive for all to take part in.
The 60 second challenges will be linked to 5 sports: Athletics, Netball, Gymnastics, Tennis and Cricket with local sporting athletes and young leaders demonstrating videos and explaining the rules. Each challenge will be accompanied with a challenge card for download.
·We have designed the Virtual Games so children can take part at home or at school, with little or no equipment needed (i.e socks instead of a tennis ball).
·We are focussing on personal best and the school game values which will be celebrated on 7th July by sharing entries and videos/ pictures.
·Videos/ pictures are not a necessity for entry- we are pushing the honesty value for those who choose to just submit a score.
·We will also be awarding a prize to the most active school! For every child that takes part (whether at home/ at school) your school will be awarded a point.
·This will also be announced as part of our online celebration day on the 7th July.
·Personal Best certificates will be downloadable from our website each week.
Entry is simple. All details can be found on our webpage here.
