PE and Dance
At Rampton Primary School we believe that Physical Education and Sport have a vital role to play in the physical, social, emotional and intellectual development of children as well as the role it can play in relation to a child’s spiritual, moral and cultural development. P.E. and sport are important in giving children the knowledge, understanding and the tools to make informed choices about healthy living and have a positive impact on their own health and well-being we are currently maximising the benefits of P.E. to improve academic performance, behaviour and social relationships, whilst holistically developing all children. It is a real opportunity for both teachers and children to consolidate and work on the values that underpin every aspect of school life.
We are very fortunate to have two external coaches teach PE across the school. We use Wright Way Sports and Worksop Town Football Club. This means we can provide the children with a broad range of skills to perform in many different sports. Our Curriculum aligns with the School Games events, therefore our children have the knowledge, skills, understanding and confidence to compete against other Primary Schools in Bassetlaw.
GOLD MEDALS FOR RAMPTON 🥇
Wow! Our fantastic five have done it again! After qualifying for the Bassetlaw Boccia finals in February, today our incredible team finished in 1st place… meaning we are through to the County finals! These pupils really do deserve it. Since qualifying in February, they have been practising their throwing techniques, developed new tactics and gained a better understanding of the game. I am so pleased their hard work and dedication has paid off. We are so very proud of them!! We will enjoy celebrating their success in tomorrow’s celebration assembly. A big thank you to Miss Voice, Mr Hunt and Retford Oaks Academy for having us. We are so excited to represent the entire Bassetlaw district! What an achievement.
Five of our pupils went to Retford Oaks for a Boccia competition on Thursday 23rd February. In fact, this was our first ever Boccia competition…. the children only learnt the rules that morning, whilst having a quick ten minute practice with Mrs Roberts. We are absolutely delighted to announce that we have qualified through to the Bassetlaw finals! Our fantastic five played against eight other schools and finished within the top four. As always, we are so proud. On Wednesday 15th March, our Boccia team will be competing in the Bassetlaw finals for a chance to participate at the County finals.
Netball finals 9.2.23
Then, with tummies full of happy meals, we visited Sparken Hill Academy for a friendly after school. We watched our little Year 4s play their first full game of netball, after having a taster this morning. A huge thank you to Sparken Hill for hosting and making us feel so welcome, as always.
To say we left school early this morning, played hours of netball and didn’t return to school until 5, you’d think the girls would be exhausted but they sang their hearts out on the bus journey home! Such a wonderful day with our fabulous children. Well done girls!
Year 5 and 6 netball festival 13.10.22
Thank you Retford Oaks Academy and Bassetlaw School Games for hosting and organising this morning’s netball festival. Well done to all our pupils who participated and represented Rampton Primary School.
Boys football 12.10.22
An excellent performance this afternoon has led to a well earned 7-1 victory for Rampton! Mrs Gardener, Miss Reed and Mr Wright are so proud of how far these pupils have come. Tremendous effort, teamwork and quality on show. Definitely the best performance so far! What a wonderful way to end the term.
Year 3 and 4 football festival 24.5.22
Our Year 3 and 4 boys enjoyed participating in a football festival today at Retford Oaks, led by Scholars at Worksop Town Academy. Alongside eight other Primary Schools, we rotated around a number of different activities developing specific skills and techniques, such as passing, dribbling, turning and finishing. Despite the mixed weather conditions, the boys really enjoyed the festival and earned themselves a certificate for taking part. Well done boys!
Girl's football 23.02.22
Our Rampton girls were absolutely amazing today, Wednesday 23rd February, beating Gateford Park Primary School 5-3. After losing the first two games against Ranby and Ramsden, this win felt so good. An outstanding performance by all and a first game hosted on our new pitch. What a special occasion, one of which I’m sure the girls will always remember. Hard work and determination pays off. We are extremely proud of our superstar footballers- they really deserve this.
Year 5/6 athletics competition at Tuxford Academy 25.11.21
A huge well done to our Year 5/6 children who competed in the sports hall athletics competition on Thursday 25th December at Tuxford Academy. All the children showed great teamwork and determination for all track and field events.
We came 3rd overall, only three points away from qualifying!
Well done to our Year 6 girls for playing in their first netball competition. They played against ten other schools and won three games. We are so proud of them. The girls really enjoyed the festival and they are eager to play netball again.
