Physical Education at Ardleigh Green Junior School aims to embed physical activity in all our children to help them overcome the challenges of modern life and unlock their potential. We want to provide sport and physical activity as a tool for all our children to use as a transformative power to allow them to overcome challenges and set them up for a happy and healthy future. PE builds skills that can be used across all subjects and teaches more than just the rules or techniques of sports, it develops resilience, communication and respect which are all values that need to be adopted in later life. We want to engage all our children in this mentality and way of thinking. At Ardleigh Green your child will have two PE lessons each week, both taught by our In House Sports Coaches. One of the sessions, short PE, will focus on key skills. For PE children will need to come in wearing School PE kit and trainers with no jewellery. On their short PE day they will need to wear school uniform with trainers and again, no jewellery, please. Any long hair should be tied back. Your child’s PE day will be communicated to you via DOJO.
Homework in Year 4 will be set every Monday and checked the following Monday.
As you are probably aware, the government recently created a times table check at the end of year 4. To prepare the children for this, please encourage the children to regularly practise their tables. This can be done using the websites below.

We will also be testing weekly in school. This will be completed on a Friday and results will be sent home for the children to share with you.
