In Summer 2016 Longman’s Hill School were successful in achieving the Silver School games, a nationally recognised award.

Another year off to a fantastic start.

This year we are introducing Sport’s leaders.  This children have a passion for sport and want to pass it on to our younger learners.  Each lunch time they will go out into the playground and encourage children to join in with the different activities we have on offer.


Last year we took part in the Hockey tournament and got to the level 3 final.  Sadie, now Year 4, played in this event. She was excited by it and took up the sport weekly at the local club.  Read her account of what inspired her to take up the sport. selby-hockey-club-sadie-case-study

PE 2015/16

We have started this year with a bang! There is so much going on with PE at school.

Thank you to everyone who filled in the forms to let me know what your child does out of school.  This information is really valuable as it shows those hidden talents your children have.

In school this year the children have the opportunity to take part in; Yoga, running, dance, netball, football, multi sports and athletics, extra curricular clubs.

This year we still have Fit4fun coming in to teach children across school.  This is a great opportunity for the children to learn from a specialised PE coach.

We are only 8 weeks into the term and so far the whole school have participated in an Intra school competition and all of KS2 have taken part in an Inter school competition.  Details of these events are below.

On Friday 23rd we had our School Dodgeball event.  This was  to raise money for British Heart Foundation and also promote fitness within school. The children loved joining in. The winning teams received a special certificate, but as a Year 5 child said, “The real winners of the day are the children who the British Heart Foundation will save. 008





Cross Country Final

3 of our children Swimmingqualified for the cross country final at Dalby forest.  It was a tough event with children from all over North York who had won their heats competiting.  Well done to Chris and Alfie.  A special well done to Freya who came 8th! We are so proud of you.



The quick sticks tournament this year has been changed.  Usually it was a Year 5 and 6 event however this year it was Year 3 and 4’s turn to compete.  They played with fantastic team spirit and came 2nd. Qualifying them for the Level 2 final in May.  Well done.



I am so proud of our gymnastics team.  Children in Years 2,3 and 4 took part in the competition with over 9 schools.  They had to learn 2 routines and perform a vault.  The Key Stage 1 group came and amazing 3rd and the Key Stage 2 group came a fantastic 2nd.  They showed amazing manners and exemplary behaviour.  There ability to take on board feedback meant that they really showed off their abilities.  Well done! A special thank you to Mr Miller for all his help coaching the team, we couldn’t have done it without your help.


On Wednesday 13th January, 8 Year 5 and 6 pupils took part in a swimming gala.  Not only did they come a fantastic 3rd out of the 8 schools who took part, but they were amazing sports people too.  Not only cheering on each other, but cheering on the other schools too.  A special well done to Phoebe in Year 5 and Millie in year 6, who won their races, their additional hard work and practice each week clearly paid off.


Sports Hall Athletics

On Wednesday Sports Hall Athletics4th November, Year 6 participated in the areas Sports Hall Athletics competition.  The children were able to use a lot of the skills they have been learning in their PE sessions, competing alongside other schools from the areas.

football team ESFA cup

We have that many amazing footballers in Year 5 and 6 we have had to set up 2 teams. The A team have had a tremendous start.  They played their first games in the ESFA cup.  Winning 2 out of the 3 games.  However, for me this wasn’t the significant part; the team spirit they showed and sportsmanship was amazing.  I am so proud of them.

On Wednesday 4th November, the ‘B’ team made their debut.  It was a challenging match, and although the team lost, there was a lot learnt and I was proud of the way the children thought about moving forward with their skills.

The “A” team went on to play against Kellington both home and away.  They have won both of their games.  I was delighted to see the sportsmanship of all the players, whether they are skilled footballers who play for a local team or they are new to the game.  Well done.

Our “B” team played at home against Camblesforth and also won their game.  I am looking forward to the return match away on Wednesday 2nd December.



PE 2014/15


We had lots of fun at Sports day today! Here are just a few of the pictures.  Well done to Cherry Tree family for winning the events.


We believe that providing a wealth of opportunities for children to participate in a range of physical activity, both competitive and otherwise, is essential. For this reason, we offer a range of sporting after school clubs. We also pay for specialist coaches to teach weekly PE lessons to ALL of the children in school. Class teachers actively participate in this so that their own skills develop alongside the children and the whole quality of provision for PE is improved.

The feedback from our children about their PE lessons is very positive.
