Physical Eduction (PE)
Each class has two PE lessons per week. In each year children experience these main activities – games, gymnastics, dance, athletics and swimming, the latter being in Y4. Children swim in Yr 4, but continue into Yr’s 5 & 6 if they cannot swim 25 yards. Y6 are also given the opportunity to enjoy a week’s residential visit to an outdoor pursuits centre for activities such as caving, mountain biking and canoeing. We have for many used the LCC Centre at Whitehough near Pendle, however following its closure in August 2016; we intend to use Tower Wood OEC on Windermere.
Chorley Sports Partnership are based here at Buckshaw. These specialist coaches deliver high quality sports clubs after school, and indeed provide ‘Child Care’ through highly structured Sports Clubs during our school holidays. Full details of the clubs on offer and their start and end dates and times can be found on the school’s website. We also run a weekly Taekwondo Club.
