At Forest Hall, pupils participate in a range of sports, for enjoyment and to develop their health and fitness. Opportunities are provided to improve skills and become physically confident through dance, gymnastics, athletics, games, swimming, outdoor and adventurous activities.
At the same time we offer pupils the opportunity to participate in inter school, local and county wide competitions and encourage a sense of fairness and team spirit in all pupils.
The School Games Mark has been put on pause this year, due to the impact that COVID-19 has had on schools and the School Games programme. A national decision was made for schools to retain the Mark award they achieved in 2018-2019. That means that we will remain a GOLD school this year!
There will be no level award issued this year, but we have been recognised for our achievements across the Autumn and Spring terms this year, as well as the virtual delivery and engagement during the period of COVID-19, in order to encourage children to remain active. We have been awarded the following badges by the North Tyneside PE Team:
We would like to say a huge thank you to the North Tyneside PE team for recognising our efforts this year, and we look forward to taking part in more PE and Sport events in the next academic year. Please click on the links below to view our certificates.
Here are the final (for now!) activity cards for the Gymnastics @ Home. These cards show the Key Step 1 (Key Stage 1) and Key Step 2 Routines, as well as some young people trying them out. Can you have a go yourself? Don't forget to tweet your efforts @foresthallps.
If, like me, you have been looking for lots of ways to stay active at home, and have had many virtual fallings out with Joe Wicks (!!), why not have a go at these fun activity cards? Each card includes a game that can easily be played at home, and they all come with ways to challenge yourself if it is too easy. Click on the images below to enlarge them. If you have a go at any of the challenges, please tweet us photographs of you @foresthallps with the hashtag #staysafestayhome. Enjoy!
It's really important that we try to keep ourselves fit and active during lockdown, for both our physical and mental wellbeing. There are lots of different ways to keep yourselves active during your daily exercise, or even just in the house or garden! Check out the PE Home Learning document for lots of fun ideas to keep yourselves fit.
We are delighted to announce that we have been retained our GOLD medal in the School Games Mark for the 2018/2019 academic year. Click on the link below to have a look at our certificate.
Change4Life is a government initiated campaign, which aims to get children more active. Click on the link below for further information about the scheme.
In September 2017, we launched The Daily Mile. Public Health England recommend that children aged between 5-18 have 60 minutes of exercise every day - at school, we are responsible for 30 of those minutes. The Daily Mile is an initiative set up to encourage children to become more active during the school day. The aim is to try to get children running or walking at least a mile a day. Research has shown that if a child is more active, they are able to concentrate more in lessons, meaning they have stronger attainment levels and make more progress.

Throughout the Foundation Stage, Key Stage One and Key Stage Two, the school aims to encourage its pupils to participate in a range of sports, particularly for the purposes of enjoyment and recreation. Opportunities are provided to grow and develop through dance, gymnastics, athletics, games, swimming and outdoor and adventurous activities. At the same time, we aim to support those who wish to participate in inter-class, inter-school, local and county wide competitions to further these ambitions.
In PE, our pupils acquire knowledge, skills and understanding, develop their analytical and evaluation skills and learn to work both independently and collaboratively as a part of a team.
We have used the PE & Sports Premium to enhance the delivery of PE at Forest Hall in Primary School.
We also work closely with the Newcastle United Foundation , who deliver the Premier League Primary Stars Program, and provide us with an after school club. The lessons are delivered by fully qualified coaches, and focus on all aspects of the PE curriculum, and along with lessons taught by our teachers, help us to build and improve the children's sporting ability.
We are also a proud member of the English Schools' Football Association.
