Sports

PE Games Extra-curricular

Physical Education and Sport at the Roche School seeks to develop the physical potential of every child through a varied and challenging  curriculum. Pupils take part in a wide range of physical activities which range from multi-skill based lessons in the lower school to sport-based lessons in the upper school. These activities aim to develop the whole child in the areas of social, cognitive and physical development.

Sport is taught by specialist teachers and coaches. In Key Stage 1,  pupils take part in multi-skill based lessons to develop the fundamentals of movement, which include travelling, stabilising and object control skills. Pupils participate in activities based around the concept of invasion, striking and fielding and net/wall games.

In Key Stage 2 pupils begin to develop their skills, knowledge and understanding within specific sports. Pupils are assessed based on ability, effort and attitude and  put into groups accordingly. These groupings allow pupils to be challenged within their sporting ability and take part with similar ability pupils.

Pupils are strongly encouraged  to take part in Extra-Curricular sport.  Please read our Daily Life/ Clubs page for further details.

STEM Week – Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths at The Roche School

The week commencing 3rd October will be STEM Week at The Roche School, based around the theme of Water. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths, so the week will involve many exciting experiments, challenges and construction activities. On  Monday 3rd October, STEM Week will be kicked off by a special whole school assembly centred on the theme of ‘Water’, led by a special guest…Science Man. Throughout the day every class will have a workshop looking at the importance of water, uses of water and water experiments. On Tuesday 4th October we will be holding a whole school ‘Times Tables Challenge’, where every child will compete (with differentiated tables) to gain as many points for their house as possible. Good luck! On Thursday 6th October, The STEM team at school will lead an interactive assembly and award prizes won during the weeks’ challenges.
