Welcome to our sports page! Here you will find details of the vast range of physical activities in which we are involved. Scroll down to view our latest sports news and share in the many activities we have taken part in during this year. Our sport and PE is also celebrated on individual class pages: please take some time to share these with your children by following the 'Classes' link above.
We are pleased to announce that we will be competing in the School Games Programme again this year with many competitions organised for us by our local SGO (Sara Galliers). These Level 2 competitions (inter school) are in addition to the many sporting opportunities and occasions which take place on a daily basis both in and out of lessons (intra school). All of our pupils take part in two hours of curriculum PE and Sport and many choose to attend lunchtime and after school clubs. Currently, the Play Leaders and House Captains are busy setting up a database to record the participation rate in sports of all our pupils so that we adapt our provision to help those who may want a bit of an extra push! Each class has already set themselves their first personal challenge and all children are trying to beat their personal best in their chosen area.
Our recent achievements have included winning the East Hampshire competitions for Indoor Athletics and for Gymnastics which allowed us to compete in the Hampshire Games. What an amazing experience that was!
We were also lucky enough to welcome Alanya (Hampshire heptathlete) to Langrish who led an assembly on how she became a successful athlete. She shared the highs and lows and reflected on the lessons she has already learned through her sport.
In every lesson, our pupils are encouraged to observe the following values. These help the children to understand that although winning is a positive experience, it is how a team communicates and works together which will ultimately make them successful. Pupils are also encouraged to believe in themselves and always give 100 % at all times.
We actively encourage all of our pupils to pursue their sporting passions outside of school and we celebrate any achievements in our school newsletter 'The Nutshell'. Click on the 'Newsletters' link above to find out what our pupils have been getting up to outside of school. Our talented youngsters regularly participate in diving, dancing, swimming and gymnastics to name but a few!

Autumn Term 2019
We have been awarded the Gold Level for the Sainsbury's School Games Mark for the third year running! It has taken pride of place in the front entrance hall. This reflects our outstanding provision for Sport and PE throughout the school, both in curriculum time and outside of school. Thank you to all members of our community who help with coaching, supporting and participating in the wide variety of sports on offer. We look forward to another successful year of sport for the 2019 - 20 season during which we are working towards the Platinum Level of recognition.
Twelve new playmakers from Year 5 have had a super introduction into leadership through taking part in the PlayMaker Award training at Bohunt School. Having completed a day's training, these children can now organise small games and activities for other children.
Our playmakers are now part of our School Parliament which meets regularly every week.
Thank you to 'Primary Stars' for the sports equipment delivered during September. The school now has fifteen new footballs, two new goals, bibs, cones, beanbags, spots and activity cards. Mr. Hancox was also very excited to receive his new tracksuit from them and the children love the captains armband!
YR were very excited to receive a delivery of ten balance bikes and helmets. The children are being supported to develop their cycling skills with Miss Parker as their balanceability leader. The children take part in daily sessions to improve their physical development and gross motor skills and have enjoyed learning to glide and then stop safely. When they have completed their basic training they will receive a certificate of celebration.
