Loving, learning, growing together with Jesus
At St Margaret Mary's Infants we are committed to provide quality P.E. teaching across the school. Children are given the chance to play a range of different sports in our lunchtime and after school clubs. We work closely with LSC (Little Sports Coaching) who deliver a wide range of extra curricular clubs. If you wish your child to attend one of these clubs please follow the link below to book them in.
LSC Breakfast Club & After School Clubs at St Margaret Mary’s Infant School
Multi Sports: A Multi-Sports programme which includes a wide variety of sports and activities.
Sports such as cricket, dodgeball, hockey, tennis, basketball, tag-rugby, frisbee, tri-golf and many more.
Children will be introduced to and coached in 1 or 2 sports each week, dependant on the duration of the club. All sessions include a FUN warm-up, fun games, skills and small sided matches. These sessions are perfect for a child new to sports but also caters for the experienced sports enthusiast.
Football: Our football sessions are based on the Mini Soccer philosophy, a scaled down version of association football, smaller pitches and fewer players.
Why small sided? A very simple answer – small sided games mean more football and more involvement in the game. It maximises involvement in real football situations. More goals, shots, saves, passes, dribbles, tricks and tackles.
It makes it easier for coaches to observe where players are in their development. All players attack and defend in a game rather than being stuck in one position. More freedom to explore the game and ultimately MORE FUN!
• Children come straight from class (if after school or lunchtime)
• Coaches will be responsible for the children from the end of school until parent/guardian collects
• 1, 1.5 or 2 hour sessions (dependant on school)
• Split into age/ability groups
• Maximum participation at every session
• Olympian of the week awards
• All sessions led by fully qualified coaches
• Age appropriate equipment
• Children work within our specifically designed curriculum

Key Stage One
Pupils are taught to:
•master basic movements (on both the dominant and non dominant side of the body) including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination, and begin to apply these in a range of activities
•participate in team games, developing simple tactics for attacking and defending
•perform dances using simple movement patterns.
At St Margaret Mary's Catholic Infant School, we want children to enjoy and be excited by P.E, so that they may continue to enjoy physical exercise into their adult like. Exploring many different skills and building their knowledge of dance, gymnastics and games.
Children are taught to develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. They are given the opportunity to engage in competitive (both against self and against others) and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations.
Lessons are taught by class teachers and specialist providers to ensure that the children receive a wide experience of dance, gymnastics and games. Through this balance, they are able to build their knowledge and skills.
Children will leave our school, ready for the PE curriculum in the juniors school. They will enjoy P.E. lessons and be able to demonstrate a range of knowledge and skills at 'Age Related Expectations.'

Well done to our Year 2 Hockey team who recently won a LSC inter schools competition. The children played extremely well throughout the tournament. The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and were well deserved winners. Thank you to all the staff from Little Sports for organising a great tournament.
