Each term, we hold intra-school competitions in both KS1 and KS2. Pupils from each year group compete against each other in their House Teams. They take part in a different competitive sport each term, such as Dodge Ball, hockey, football, Bench Ball.
In the summer term, we hold our competitive Sports Day, to which parents, family and friends are invited to watch and cheer!
Pupils across the school are given opportunities to take part in interschool sporting events over the year. We try to ensure that each year group has at least one opportunity to participate each year, with older pupils having a number of events each term.
Sporting events include cross country, kurling, indoor athletics, track and field athletics, football, high 5, Tag Rugby, orienteering, cricket and triathlon.
Staff give generously of their time to ensure that our pupils can take part in as many events over the year as possible, and we display our trophies, with pride, in school! We are always grateful to parents who help with transport and stay to cheer on Team Messingham!
Please see below for information on what we have been doing in PE.
The PE newsletters include information on events we have entered and how we performed.
On Thursday 30th of March, North Lincolnshire School Sport visited Messingham Primary School to educate pupils about how to lead a healthy lifestyle through their A Healthy Me project.
Pupils were taught how to read a food label to understand whether it is ‘healthy’ or ‘unhealthy’, based on the fat and sugar content. Each class has been set a challenge, where they compete against each other, to collect as many ‘healthy’ food labels as possible. There will be a prize awarded for the winning class when North Lincolnshire School Sport return.
We encourage you to support your child to bring the (washed out!) food labels to school, to help them to win their class challenge.
