At Eye Primary, we aim to develop agility, co-ordination and confidence through physical activity. All pupils at Eye have two sessions of PE a week, covering dance, gymnastics, swimming, games and athletics. We encourage a competitive spirit while recognising the value of co-operation, fair play and team work. Luckily, at Eye we have a swimming pool on site for children from Reception to Year 6. This allows the children to have the opportunity to learn the skills and confidence needed when in the water.
Eye Primary has a whole range of sports clubs offered to the children. We provide Martial Arts, Ballet, girls and boys Football, Netball, Cross Country running, Gymnastics, Country Dance, Swimming, Rugby and Multi-Sports. There is a wide variety of clubs for the children to participate in and the children enjoy the competitive ambience. We also host and participate in Football, Hockey and Netball games throughout the year and in KS1, some children participate in a Ballet festival also known as “The Peterborough Dance Festival.” All children are taught to dance and become good team players through enrichment activities and clubs.
Eye has a ‘Traditional Sports Day' held in the summer term. All children compete in a selection of strength, stamina and agility activities. Family and friends of the school are always invited to watch this event and the children thoroughly enjoy participating in different races as well as, developing their sportsmanship and team spirit as they watch their peers.
Physical Education is a vital part of the children’s education and we pride ourselves in the way we help to develop their knowledge of a healthy lifestyle and positive attitudes.
