Y5/6 Sportshall Athletics Competition - Monday 22nd November


On Monday Mr Ward and Mr Clarke took our Y5s and Y6s to take part in a Sportshall Athletics Competition at Ponds Forge. This involved a variety of running, jumping and throwing activities both individually and in teams as we competed against five other schools in Sheffield. This was the first time the event had been held since 2019 due to the pandemic and even though we did not qualify for the next round so it was lovely to see all the children excited to compete again and challenge themselves . There will be more sports events coming up in the New year. Please see a selection of photos below: 

TSAT Y5 Boys Football Competition - Thursday 11th November


On Armistice Day our Y5 boys team travelled to take part in the TSAT football competition

Playing six matches across the day the boys got stuck in with mixed results. Three wins were combined with a couple of disappointing defeats and a draw, including one to eventual winners, hosts Hallam

The weather was very kind to us and the minute's silence was impeccably observed at 11am. 

Please find team photos below.

Next week we have two sports events - on Monday is the Y5/6 Sportshall Athletics Competition at Ponds Forge, followed by the TSAT Y5/6 Girls Football Competition on Thursday.   

School Football Update


On Thursday 14th October we had our first inter-school competition of the year as Mr Ward and Mr Clarke took our Y6 boys football team to face off against the other primary schools in our Trust - Hallam, Hillsborough, Meynell and Wisewood. This event was hosted by Hallam and is the first of three this term. With this being the first sports event in 18 months due to Coronavirus and the lockdown we were not sure how it would go but we all knew it was fantastic to be competing again. Our team went unbeaten throughout the day and only conceded one goal (which turned out to be an own goal!). The effort and spirit was amazing and after victories over Wisewood, Hallam and Meynell along with an unfortunate draw with Hillsborough we finished in first place which meant we played Hillsborough again in the final

Unfortunately the final was a rerun of England's efforts earlier this summer in the Euros as despite dominating the game we lost agonisingly on penalties


On Tuesday 19th October Mr Clarke and Mr Wragg took a combined Y5/6 boys team to Beck in the Sheffield Federation Schools Cup. Going into the last game against a strong Hartley Brook team we just needed a draw to finish in top spot and qualify for the next round, however we conceded a last minute goal from a corner to be overtaken by our opponents.


Meanwhile, on Thursday 21st October, Mr Wright and Miss Bentley took charge of our Y5/6 girls team who also played their Sheffield Federation Cup matches at Beck and acquitted themselves admirably despite not qualifying for the next round of games.


After half term it will be the turn of our Y5 Boys and then Y5/6 girls in the TSAT. We also have a sportshall athletics competition to look forward to in November. Inter-school sport is back!

Physical Education at Southey Green Primary School


PE Specialist: Mr J Ward

PE Subject Lead: Miss O Balding


Physical Education (PE) is a very popular subject at Southey Green. All children participate in two sessions a week; one with the PE Specialist and one with the class teacher. Throughout the year, there are inter-school competitions that many children will be invited to and they will have the opportunity to develop their sportsmanship skills.


Children are expected to wear a PE kit in every session. We ask that PE kits are in school everyday.

Southey Green has recently been awarded the School Games Award for 2019/20 for our on going commitment and achievement in the School Games Programme.

Our PE topics are listed below with staff following the Twinkl Move It schemes of work. Occasionally, we shuffle units around depending on weather and availability of resources and teaching space.

PE Key Knowledge, Skills and Concepts


At Southey Green, we recognise the importance of children understanding key concepts, skills and knowledge and how these support children’s learning. 

Here are Southey Green’s Key PE Concepts which are woven into our PE curriculum.
