Why not have a go at Northamptonshire Sport's Virtual School Games challenges, based on Sportshall Athletics.
A link will be emailed out each week. Here is this week's link (w/c 25th Jan):
There are three challenges to complete this week: Shuttle runs, Standing Long Jump and Speed Bounce.
Remember to submit all scores achieved on the Northamptonshire Sport website to earn participation points for the school and get the chance to win the £10 Amazon voucher each week.
There are some good Home Activity packs on the webpage that you might want to have a go at too.
Stay healthy and active!
East Haddon CE Primary School, like all primary schools, receives Sports Premium Funding from the government. The funding is used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision. The amount of money allocated to each school is based on a lump sum of £16,000 plus £10 per child on roll. Visit our PE and Sports Premium page here to see how we use our funding.
We are proud of our PE curriculum provision and of the extra-curricular opportunities that we provide for all our pupils, for example the football and gymnastics coaching provided by family run business GLK Academies. Click here to visit our Extra-Curricular clubs page.
Our school works with the South Northamptonshire and Daventry School Sports Partnership to help children develop their skills through 'in-school support, continual professional development and by providing opportunities for children to compete in high-quality School Games competitions'.

Sport and Leisure in our local community
We are always happy to promote community based sporting and leisure events on our school noticeboard, although it should be noted that the school does not accept responsibility for these externally run events.
