Mendlesham Primary School
PE and Games
Years 5 and 6 can be easily accommodated with this excellent resource. Children have 2 PE or Games lessons per week.
We also have the use of a very large playing field at the back of the school for outdoor PE, Games, competitions, Clubs etc.
We extended our school playground in the Autumn of 2017 and have also been fortunate enough to have installed outdoor gym equipment and a trim trail for our children to enjoy at lunch, play and after school club.
New for the Autumn of 2018 were lunch times sports clubs, led by professional sports coaches. These were initially being aimed at our key stage 2 children. This continued into 2019, with some lunch time club provision for the younger children too.
After school sports clubs vary but will include some of the following: multi-sports, Football, Rugby, Netball, Cross Country, Dance and Gym. There is no cost to parents for these as we subsidise the price through our PE funding to make the clubs more accessible.
Our Year 3 and 4 children (and any Yr 5s who cannot yet swim 25 m) also go to Stowmarket Leisure Centre for Swimming Lessons for one term each year.
