Welcome to our sports page!

Here at Messingham, we are proud of the role sport plays in our day to day life. Miss Houldridge is our sports leader and is always looking at new ways to improve our sporting opportunities at school. If you can think of any ways in which we can improve sport at our school, the please let me know!


We believe the sporting values and skills can be upheld through most lessons within school.

We strive to improve and never give up.

We work great as a team as well as on our own.

We believe in each other and also in ourselves.

We solve our own problems and help others to solve theirs too. 

We recognise our own strengths and realise we all have different stengths so as a team we are strongest.

We recognise the strength of diversity and celebrate this.


This page celebrates all that we do at Messingham!

Home learning support

As we are sadly not at school, you may be missing our fun sporting activties. To help you and your family have fun, below I have added lots of different sporting activities you can all do. Let me know what you think of them by emailing in to your class teachers and they will pass it on. You could say which you love, which you found difficult or if you have been creative and made your own. Maybe I could share your fabulous ideas on here too! 

Keep active but remember most importantly to keep safe!


This is the first week since lockdown began that I won't be posting anything new. This week is my week off so I will be enjoying time at home with my family. I hope you all enjoy the half term too and I will be  ready with new activities next week (maybe even with some videos of myself). See you soon!
