PE @EAST ACTON PRIMARY SCHOOL WITH J AND C ACADEMY DURING THE LOCKDOWN
On Friday March 20th, schools came to a standstill , earlier in the week the prime minister announced that schools would close and that a nationwide lockdown would begin to stop the risk of coronavirus becoming a dominant force in our everyday living.
The importance of how we look after ourselves has become more greater, not only ensuring that we stick to the guidelines handed down to us but ensuring we are all happy and healthy learners and make the most our time off.
This has lead to changes in the way we teach, learn, communicate and stay engaged.
It's really important for their physical and mental health that the children are given plenty of opportunities to move and exercise - so long as the most recent social distancing guidelines / 'lockdown' instructions are strictly followed. Clearly not all of the curriculum can be taught at home or in the current climate - team games, for instance, won't be possible. However, there are parts of the curriculum which the children can continue to develop at home, even with limited resources.
The KS2 PE National Curriculuum says that "Pupils should be taught to:
In order to keep the children active and engaged, i will post a series of links that will allow you to keep engaged, fit and focused over the course of the lockdown.
These may come in form links that maybe useful for you to use provided by J and C or it maybe links you may choose to use if you have finished the challenges set.
below are some of the links you can access.
Cosmic Kids Yoga
If you are interested in taking part in yoga and mindfulness and become more in tune with your body, you can join Cosmic Kids on Youtube. This is ideal for anyone who enjoys learning routines and for anyone who wants to relax their bodies and minds.
Joe Wick's Workout
If you are feeling a high intensity workout, then you can access Joe Wick's tiresome online workouts Monday - Friday at 9am. These can be accessed on Youtube, where they will go live at 9am, but can be accessed at anytime of the day.
GoNoodle have offered free lockdown Zumba classes to help keep children active. You can click onto their website and play a range of exciting and high energy Zumba routines.
If you feel like challenging yourself and seeing how far you can push yourself, School Games have added some difficult challenges where you can set the pace and set your goals. How far can you go? Can you do it further?
Moovlee have lots of calming yoga activities for younger children, all performed by an animated monkey. Moovlee offers stretches, balances and mindfulness activities to keep you feeling calm over these unnerving times.
Primary Resources have a vast amount of physical activities and games you can choose from. The website is a bit outdated, but it does have some really fun and engaging activities to try together as a family. You can choose from warm ups, dance and gymnastics, invasion games and striking and field (garden) games.
At East Acton Primary school, we are focused on providing high quality physical education for all children. We deliver inclusive and engaging lessons and encourage students to participate in a wide range of physical activities. Our aim is that children will become positive and active learners who are inspired to pursue and exceed in sports and other physical activities. Our curriculum provides opportunities for students to develop their physical literacy and supports their health, fitness and wellbeing.
We provide the children with 2 hours of PE (1 hour from J and C Academy and 1 hour from the teachers) which meets the government guidelines of ensuring that children are fit and healthy learners and are provided with skills that can help them excel.
KEY STAGE 1
At Key Stage 1, we focus on developing fundamental movement skills. We provide students with opportunities to become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance, coordination, individually and with others. Children are engaged in:
-Running, jumping, throwing and catching
-Finding space and using it effectively, the importance of a warm up and cool down
-Developing ball handling skills
-Enhancing hand and eye coordination
-Working independently and collaboratively
-Communicating when playing sport
-Gymnastics (Balances, moving, shapes, linking, sequencing, posture, counterbalancing, forward rolls, backward rolls, log, rolls)
-Introduction to Striking and Fielding, Athletics (prep for sports day)
KEY STAGE 2
At Key Stage 2, the children will then learn sports more competitive games, such as Basketball, Rugby, Gymnastics, Dodgeball, Tennis, Cricket, Football and Athletics as well as prepare for sports day. They will be given the opportunity to use and apply a broader range of skills, communicate, collaborate and compete with each other. They will develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognize their own success.
Children will explore:
-Running, jumping, throwing and catching in isolation and combination
-Competitive games (rules, working footwork, passing, technique, attack and defense)
-Athletics and Gymnastics
-Peer evaluation and reflection.
These will help children to hone their current skills and begin to develop the prerequisite skills for secondary school. They will be able to play with confidence and be able to choose a sport that meets their ambitions.
School Sports Teams
The school has developed a good relationship with local schools to provide with the opportunity to compete against other schools. Year 4, 5 and 6 (Boys and Girls) all have teams in Netball, Football and have a chance to apply what they have learnt to real life competitive settings. They take part in friendlies or tournaments organized here at school or by another of the local schools.
The school has set up its first Sports Council with girl and boy representatives from years 3,4,5,6. They meet the first and last Friday of every term to discuss all school sporting matters, any concerns they have about sports or ideas on how to enhance the break and lunchtimes provision if required. It’s a great way of developing leadership skills, communicating ideas and building confidence.
QPR Football Club
The school has established a solid relationship with QPR football club who comes in on Mondays and delivers some physical education lessons and also creates tournaments with ourselves and other schools. This gives the children the opportunity to experience what it’s like working with qualified professionals and playing in a high class sports environment.
The school has breakfast and after school clubs every day. They are offered a multiple of sports which change from week to week.
At lunchtime the children are provided with a range of sports activities. This is supported by the lunchtime staff and playground friends. A football League is played every week, to enhance, communication, positive behavior and teamwork across the schools at lunchtime this involves years 4, 5, 6. Children are offered a range of clubs including: Multisports- Basketball, Rugby, Gymnastics, Dodgeball, Tennis, Cricket, Football, Athletics, Football and Non- contact Boxing.
Sports Day and Enrichment
The school year culminates with sports day, which gives the children the chance to use and apply and showcase the skills they have learnt. It’s also a chance to celebrate the progress they have made throughout the year.
The Enrichment club offers boxing as a choice to help the children understand the importance of dedication and discipline.
Last week, was fun right?? I provided a few examples on ways in which we could move faster , there were two types.
Can you remember what they were?? Did you also get a chance to try those techniques and show a family member??
This week well be looking at Jumping and the techniques around that which can help you jumping higher or longer!!!
KEY STAGE 1
Jumping is a great and really fun way of moving around!!!
Its also a great way of expressing how you feel, and an event which can be used in athletics.
-Can you show someone in your household how to jump??
When you jump try to bring your legs as high to your chest and use your arms to help give you some momentum!!!!
Watch this Jump video by Patty Shukla: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kcQJDpj5TSY
How many time can you jump along with the video???
Try these: Jumping from 1 leg to two legs , two legs to two legs, two legs to 1 leg
Make sure you have enough space to try these and see how far you can go, ask someone to help you if you get stuck.
KEY STAGE 2
An important move we come across regularly is jumping, it is also a sport quite popular on sports days , Athletics events and something we like to do whether we are going to a trampoline park.
Watch this video on how to long jump: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5v9p5jBN_Hg
-From watching this video can you describe what the four skills are required for the long jump??
-How many feet does the athlete take off on and how do they land??
Watch this Long jump final from: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=twGoVVPO08Q
-Can you name the athlete that wins the gold medal???
Also, can you find out how much gold medals in total he has won for long jump??
-Can you find the world record for the long jump?? what distance did they jump in total and can you find out how many feet that is in length!!
If you have space in your household or garden, follow these steps for improving jumping technique:
-Feet shoulder width apart( from athletic position).
-Swing arms to gain momentum, whilst bending your knees.
-When you feel confident, explode and allow the force to move your arms and feet together.
-Then land with two feet.
Watch this video of Bob Beamon win gold in the 1968 Mexico Olympics:
What is the difference in distance (cms) between the record in 1968 to the current world record??
So, how did you get on with the tasks i gave you??? Did you manage to keep up with joe wicks???? Anyone feel confident that they know all the track and field events???
Im gonna provide with more questions for you to think about and some little things you can try when your home!!!!
Key Stage 1
SPRINTING OR JOGGING???
Sprinting is one of the ways athletes can run in very fast events such as the 100m or 200m, it requires fast legs and very fast hands!!!!
Jogging is another way that we can move but a technique used for everyday running or in some middle to long distance events!!!!
At Home try this:
- Run really fast On the Spot for 30 secs (Fast arms , High knees)
- Run slowly on the spot 30sec (Slow arms and Low knees)
How does your heart feel after doing the two movements above??
- Sitting down on the floor legs in front of you, swing your arms up and down (Try this both fast and slowly)
-In an appropriate space where you can walk safely , walk slowly whilst having high knees and big arm swings
This year we've been lucky enough to play some great games in the playground, and one of the games i enjoyed most was "Scarecrow Tag" and one of the things i always liked to mention was the "Start Position"
Can anyone remember what position that is??? Can you show this position to a member of your family??
Watch this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ntNk4Rk8Va8
Who do you think wins the race???
Key Stage 2
How did you get on with last weeks questions???
Did you manage to guess how many track and field events there were in total???
Did you manage to see a Athletics Event which you can match to your skillset, if so, i hope you when you have a chance you can practice these!!
This week we are going to have a look at running:
There are two main types of running:
Sprinting and Jogging
Can you find out what is the difference between the two???
Watch this 200m Olympic final event with Usain bolt:
What was the winning time in the event and if you divide that by 2 over 200ms how many seconds per 100metres???
Watch this 800m Womens final:
What running type would you associate with the 800metres, Sprinting , Running or both???
Can you find the world record times in the 200metres, 800metres and 1500metres??
Ask a family member to help you with this task!!
Sprinters normally like to swing their arms and and keep their knees high, having watched some of the videos provided do you know why this is??
View the link provided below to help you with your answer:
Whilst your at home think of a way you can practice the movements of a sprinter??

East Acton Primary School Inspirational Women's Day 6.3.2020
On Friday 6th of March, the girls from year 5, took part in a multi sport tournament that brought together 8 different schools to celebrate International Women's day.
They took part in activities such as :
Dodgeball, Football , Archery a skills session and a paint party
The girls were grouped with 4 others teams as part of the football tournament and won 3 games and drew 1:
won vs st peters 2-0
won vs holy family 3-2
won vs ark academy 1-0
drew vs Stonebridge 1-1
This was an excellent result for our school given the size and the practice we had but there is a sense that the children are beginning to thrive due to there consistent exposure to football and desire to be better.
After this success , the children then took part in a skills session held by the coaches of Qpr Football Team and learnt what is was to be part of a women's football team.
Once the Children finished their session, the next task was Dodgeball, in which the girls were mixed up into different teams with other schools and took part on a non competitive basis.
it was great to see the children's behaviour amongst other schools and it was remarked how friendly and welcoming the girls were amongst other schools.
Once lunch was finished they children then moved onto a paint party , this allowed the children to liase with other schools and paint picture of their own creations.
This was a fitting end to the days activities. The girls worked really hard and deserved an extended break after all their exertions.
Well done Girls, You made the school Proud!!!
East Acton Primary School 2 Vs King Fahad 1 29/11/2019
Good times, for the footballers of East Acton, the children in this school are really starting to come in their own and none more so than the performance of the boys on Friday.
On a cold afternoon, the boys took their turn to try and better or equal the girls result the week before.
With the boys unbeaten so far in all their matches they came up against a competitive King Fahad team, who were well drilled and struggled for most parts of the first half to get any fluency going.
No real noted chances but towards the end of the first half Faisal, Yr6, took a moment to steady himself and provide an assist for Reda. Yr 6 who aptly finished to give us the control going into the second half.
After a wake-up call from myself (Mr. Mark) the boys began to play and began to dominate the proceedings scoring yet another goal, with a great finish from Mateusz, yr6, to put us 2 nil up,with time to play, some great defending kept King Fahad at bay, but with 5 minutes to go King Fahad went on to score a deflected goal.
But by then too little too late, The East Acton Boys Proved their will grit and determination to hold on and take the victory.
A special mention goes to the year 5 boys who joined us, they have been introduced to the team in drips and drabs to help them for when they step up next year, well done boys!!! good debuts.
Well done East Acton Boys 3 games 3 wins!!!!!
Man of the Match: Matty (yr6) and Abdullah (yr 5)
East Acton Primary Girls 2 King Fahad Girls 1
On Friday 22nd of November, East Acton Girls returned for a football friendly against King Fahad.
Having lost the last match at netball, the girls were determined to make amends by putting in a more confident performance. Having been excellently welcomed by our host last time, the girls came and started strongly having the majority of chances in the match.
Aislyn and Maria (yr 6), once again defended ever resolutely and Amina, yr 5 putting in a very determined performance at the start of the game.
Then towards the end of the first half, East Acton took the lead through a strike from the ever improving Nawal, yr 6.
The match remained that way, until the last 5 mins of the last half, in which Yvie, yr 6 scored a good effort just outside the box, East Acton stayed comfortable until the last minute where King Fahad had equalised but by then it was too little , too late.
East Acton Girls run out 2 -1 winners, making their record so far…
Played 3, won 2, and drawn 1.
Well done girls!!!!
Girl of the Match: Amina, yr 5 /maria yr 6
East Acton Netball Report:
East Acton 2 King Fahad 3
On Friday the 15th of November the girls of East Acton primary school embarked on a friendly match with King Fahad Primary School in their grounds.
The king Fahad team was well drilled and started fast, catching our girls out racing into a 3 nil lead after just 7 minutes.
Then the East Acton girls woke up and after a few changes the girls started to play more openly and with more confidence.
Maria and Aisyln, (yr 6), in particular were defending excellently and resolutely, while Mayas grit and determination with the ball helped to make inroads in the opposing team and helped set up Abigail for the 1st score for east Acton.
3 nil at the end of the 1st quarter ended up as 3-2 by the start of the 3rd quarter with Abigail once again showing her skill to score again.
Whilst having many chances to equalize the hosts defended well and saw them edge out East Acton as 3 2 winners in a testing and learning match for us.
Abigail, from year 6 said afterwards:
“The girls and I tried extremely hard to win but unfortunately the score was 2-3!! Hopefully we will have a more advanced playing scheme for our upcoming netball match”!!
Well done girls…..great team effort and spirit!!!!
The Big Morning Move 2019
@East Acton Primary School 15.11.2019
On Friday the 15th of November, children from East Acton Primary School took part in a fundraising challenge called “the big morning move” in which children from each class donated a pound to allow the children to come in and wear something sporty .
The whole morning was in aid of children in need, in which The Body Coach, Joe wicks was hosting a morning workout live on the bbc, so millions of viewers and others schools could help to take part too.
All kids from reception to year 6 took part in this challenge which lasted for 10 mins in each class.
This was a really intense but challenging 10 minute workout which all staff and kids really enjoyed taking part in.
We thank all kids and staff for taking part or donating, the money raised will go to those less fortunate than ourselves.
Keep an eye out for SPORT RELIEF from March 9th to the 13th where we will be hosting a range of different events, challenges and even more fundraising.
A big thank you to everyone that took part!!!!!
FOOTBALL MATCH: FRIENDLY
EAST ACTON BOYS 5 JOHN PERRYN BOYS 4
EAST ACTON GIRLS 0 JOHN PERRYN GIRLS 0
On Friday the 11th of October, the East Acton boys and girls travelled down to John Perryn School for the return fixture in a football friendly.
Both teams picked up from where they left off and both produced very good results to find themselves unbeaten after 2 games each.
The boys' match was a tight affair again, with John Perryn looking to avenge their defeat on our home patch. The boys started with the same energy and teamwork that has complimented their performances, and went into an early lead due to the outstanding player, Leon, from year 6 leading the line amazingly, playing upfront.
This settled the boys and while John Perryn equalised, the boys retook the lead due to a great individual goal by Matti.
The boys fought on and before the break John Perryn equalized to make it 2-2 at the break.
Meanwhile, the girls, still ever confident from their last game in which they won emphatically, faced a fierce challenge with the JP GIRLS showing the great improvements from their last match. No clear cut chances, but they went in at the break 0-0.
Half time, two team talks and two great performances again, from both teams.
The girls carried on in the second half with a better shape and had more chances in this half, which they could not defend and thanks to some good defending on both sides, the score stayed 0-0 in the girls' game.
The boys, eager to impress, were playing some brilliant football and Leon, leading the line excellently, managed to score another outstanding goal.
One thing that stood out for East Acton was the way they played for each other - their spirit and fight was on show and even when John Perryn fought back to equalise, Reda then scored a well worked team goal to regain the lead 4-3.
With time running out, John Perryn pushed for the equaliser and got it with a brilliant long range effort from one of their players.
But with a minute left, that man (Man of the Match) Leon popped up again with an amazing volleyed goal to make it 5-4 and clinched a win with 30 secs left.
The East Acton boys and girls showed tremendous effort, teamwork and resilience, to win again. Something which in no doubt leaves me convinced, good times are ahead for these kids if they continue to work hard and apply themselves accordingly.
WELL DONE BOYS AND GIRLS - ONTO THE NEXT!!!!
EAST ACTON PRIMARY SCHOOL PLAY FIRST FRIENDLIES OF THE SEASON AND WIN!!!
Friday 4th October 2019
EAST ACTON BOYS 5 JOHN PERRYN BOYS 3
EAST ACTON GIRLS 8 JOHN PERRYN GIRLS 4
The first sports fixtures of the season against others schools commenced on the Friday as the East Acton boys and girls played John Perryn in a friendly football match.
The team had a minimum of one practice session, but showed qualities that no doubt will stand them in good stead for the future.
The boys started nervously and took a quick lead without quite being able to establish their game to full effect, this led to them being ending the half 2 -1 down.
Meanwhile, the girls, were a little more together and raced into a 2 nil lead, with events up to then leading to a 4-3 lead for the girls at half time.
The boys after a half time talk then started to impress their game on the visiting team and raced into a 4-2 lead after half time, passing more fluently and showing trust in their teammates.
The girls then picked up where they left off and further extend their lead and ended up managing to win 8-4 by the end of play.
The boys further improved but in the end managed to hold off their visitor’s fight back to win 5-3.
Both teams will be away at John Perryn as John Perryn will no doubt look to avenge their defeats, with a much improved performance.
Well done to all teams involved as their sportsmanship and attitude was a credit to all those who watched and played.
Mr Mark was impressed more by the spirit our team showed and the enthusiasm they gave each other.
Here’s to the first of many!!!!!

PE AT EAST ACTON PRIMARY SCHOOL 2019/2020
First of all...welcome back!
The summer holidays are always exciting and I hope every man, woman and child has come back looking forward to what will be another exciting year for everyone involved at this school.
PE, this year, will be aiming to provide the children here, no matter their ability, a chance to experience new sports and a chance to develop new friends and learning experiences.
At this stage of a child's development, the emphasis is to ensure that the children find the activities challenging, fun, educational and to ensure that they also give them a platform for creativity.
Here at East Acton Primary School, each child is pushed to try new things in their respective sports and encourage others to be better.
At Key Stage 1, as well as developing fundamental and teamwork skills, the children will have a chance to develop skills in certain sports , whether trying the sport for the first time or just being curious.
At Key Stage 2 , the children will be looking at specific sports more closely , whilst developing an understanding of what skills and techniques are required, in order to progress in a sport that the child maybe interested in. For example: handball, tennis, futsal, hockey , rugby, non contact boxing, boccia!!!
These are just some of the sports that will be looked at this year and give children a chance to try something new.
The ethos is clear... "when these children grow, we will grow with them, we grow together!"
After-school clubs will be varied and the children will once again have a chance to experience working with different people and build further on what they learn inside or outside school.
East Acton Primary School has a rich history of participation in out of school competitions and we will aim to keep that going this year.
Also, intra-house (in-school) competitions will be held, to give those children a chance to expect what a tournament may look like if they are selected !!!!
This can only be encouraging and we look forward to seeing every child taking part in some sport or trying a new sport in or out of school.
In this section we want to promote the PE provision and sporting achievements at East Acton Primary.

QPR Kids Community Football Tournament Report
On Friday 26TH April, East Acton Primary football team travelled to the Westway Sport & Fitness Football Pitches to contest in the QPR Kids Community Football Tournament
Football team: Mateusz, Lee, Mahdi, Leon, Reda, Maia, Yvie, J’Quan
East Acton where drawn into group C with Wilberforce and William Byrd. First game was against Wilberforce where we won 3-0 comfortably with goals from Mateusz (2) and Reda. The whole team were outstanding in the first game. The second game we played William Byrd and won 3-0 again with goals from Mateusz (2) and Lee, again another outstanding performance. These two wins meant that we topped Group C and went through to the quarter finals where we played John Keble C of E but unfortunately lost to the better team in that match. Proud to say we made it to the quarter finals of a 24 team school football tournament and the kids enjoyed the overall experience.
The final message from Mr Hunte to the players was “You win some games and you lose some. It is all a learning experience and we all as a whole need to learn to deal with losing better and come back stronger”
QPR Kids Cup Report
On Friday 14th December, East Acton Primary football team travelled to the PlayFootball pitches at Shepherds Bush to contest in the QPR Kids Cup
Football team: Mateusz, Alanoud, Rachel, Andre, Eris, Adam A, Adam O, Brayan
East Acton where drawn into group D with King Fahad and St Mary’s CE. Group D was tight but the team was impressive in their first game against King Fahad winning convincingly 4-1 with 2 goals from Mateusz and 2 goals from Adam A. Their second game against St Mary’s CE was a tougher test with lots of goals at both ends this time scoring a 4-4 draw, again Mateusz got 2 goals, Adam A got 1 goal and Eris scoring from an impressively free kick from his own goalie area. This meant that we qualified and progressed through to the knockout stages. We played Byron Court from Group C and it was a very tight game with nothing in it for the duration of the match and finished 1-1 however as it was the knockout stages it meant that only penalty shoot outs could decide who goes through. Unfortunately Byron Court was the victors this time and that was the end of the competition for East Acton.
Nonetheless, Mr Hunte couldn’t give the players enough credit for their fantastic efforts, “I am very happy with each players attitude in wanting to do well for their school, I cannot fault each player’s efforts”

Boys football team: Adam A, Bradley, Alzinho, Harry, Omar, Reda, Aryan and Mateusz
Result = East Acton 4 – 0 King Fahad Academy.
Goal scorers: Mateusz (2), Bradley and Reda
This was a chance for our second boys football team to compete in their first competitive match of the school year. It was a very fast paced first half with both teams creating lots of chances. The boys led 2 – 0 at half-time but the score line could have easily read differently if it wasn’t for a number of great saves from Aryan in goal. The second half saw a dominant and determined East Acton display, with the team stringing together many more passes than the opposition and adding 2 more goals to their tally. On top of the students’ fantastic football skills was their outstanding work rate and team chemistry, which ultimately lead them to victory.
A very big thank you to King Fahad Academy for hosting us and for providing our players with refreshments.
Please see the pictures and player reflections below.
Bradley – ‘Before the game I felt excited because this was my first match in year 6 and I wanted to verse a new team with new people.’
‘After playing the match I learnt that It’s important to pass more.’
– ‘The part I liked best about the match was when Bradley scored a nutmeg goal because of my pass in the last minute.’
Mateusz – ‘After the match I was happy we won but could improve, could win by way more if taken our chances.’
On Tuesday 9th of October, the East Acton Primary year 3/4 girls and boys football team's contested against John Perryn Primary.

Result = East Acton 0 – 0 John Perryn Primary.
This was a fantastic result for both our football teams, as it was the first time they had competed as a team. The boys did an incredible job turning around a 3 – 0 deficit at half time, to win the match 8 – 5. Although there weren’t any goals in the girls match, the team’s determination couldn’t be questioned. It was wonderful to see so many happy faces on the pitch and an atmosphere in the playground you’d normally see at Wembley Stadium! A very big thank you to those who supported both teams and to John Perryn Primary for travelling to our school.
Please see the pictures and player reflections below.
– ‘In the lead up to the match I felt nervous and excited’.
‘I liked that we ended up with a draw’.

Result = East Acton 1 – 1 King Fahad Academy. Goal scorer: Brayan
This was a good result for our boys football team, as it was our first competitive match of the school year. It was an extremely exciting game with the ball going end to end. The boys had lots of opportunities to score and were unlucky with the ball hitting the cross bar/post on many occasions. The team showed a great work rate and played exceptionally well as a team.
A very big thank you to King Fahad Academy for hosting us and for providing our players with refreshments and healthy snacks after the game.
Please see the pictures and player reflections below.
– ‘In the lead up to the match I felt excited because I got selected to play in the team and I’d never been to K.F.A before’.
‘My favourite part about the match was in the second half, when we scored the equalising goal!’
Eris – ‘Although they scored first, I liked that we worked as a team to get the goal back’.
‘After playing the game, I felt happy because it was such a fun and tough game!’
Year 5 Wallball Tournament – 06/07/18
On Friday 6th of March, 10 very eager East Acton Primary students travelled to Westway Sports and Fitness Centre to partake in two Handball events. Firstly, the group took part in an Eton Fives taster session. The students had never heard of this sport and were excited to give it a try. Our boys and girls took to the sport as naturals.
When Adam O was asked how he felt before playing Eton Fives he replied with, ‘Very excited because I have never played it before.’
After lunch, the students participated in a Wallball tournament. This gave our students’ a chance to compete against other school children, which was a first for some. They all displayed fantastic Wallball skills and showed a determination which saw East Acton Primary School finish as overall CHAMPIONS!!! This was an even greater achievement considering the group had only practiced the sport a handful of times.
It was amazing to see an exceptional level of sportsmanship shown by all East Acton students throughout the entire day. Please check out the pictures/player reflections below. Well done East Acton! The school is very proud of your performances!
How did you feel before leaving for the sports centre?
Phea – I felt nervous but I felt confident .
Did you like the sport Eton Fives? If yes, why?
Brayan – Yes I did because I tried a new sport.
How did you find playing in a sports tournament against another school? What did you like best about it?

What did you enjoy most about the day?
Brayan – I liked that we won the trophy.

Goal scorers: Mohammed 2, Suleiman 1 & Mahdi 1
Result = East Acton 2 – 6 King Fahad Academy
Our netball team played tremendously well considering they had very limited practice in the build up to the match. After a cautious start, the girls began to come out of their shells and showed a huge amount of determination. The girls then clawed their way back into the game and displayed brilliant netball skills all over the court.
Goal scorers: Iman 2
A very big thank you to King Fahad Academy for hosting us and for providing our players with refreshments, healthy snacks and certificates after the games.
Please see Mahdi’s and Moyo’s player reflections below.
Mahdi – ‘I was excited to play against one of our rivals as they had a good reputation!’
‘After playing the game, I’ve now learnt that it’s not one player who carries the team, it’s the entire team.’
‘I would also like to say thank you to King Fahad for letting us use their great facilities.’
Moyo – ‘Leading up to the game I was feeling very excited about playing King Fahad because I haven’t played a netball match with them before.’
‘After playing the game, I have learnt to try and be able to pass more to people close to me instead of all the way across the court.’
‘I think going there made me love netball more, it was so much fun and it was a thrilling experience.’

Playground Friends Reflections
Angel, Year 6 Sequoia:
In my playground, I play games with the children. If anyone is sad or lonely, I play with them and ask other children if they would like to play with them too.
Ever since I started doing Playground Friends, I have enjoyed all the time, as I have made new friends.
It would be great if we had more games to play, so if you find any other fun games, please tell the Playground Friends.
The children have been really nice and friendly to me.
Thank you for choosing me to be a Playground Friend.
Playground Friends Display
Check out our new display, promoting the phenomenal attributes of our amazing Playground Friends!
Playground Friends 2017/18
Below are photos of our Year 6 Playground Friends for 2017/18. These helpful students have taken it upon themselves to assist other children at play times. Their role is to ensure all children are engaged in active and fun play. They organise games and activities to keep their peers entertained and happy.
They gained this responsibility by completing an application and then an interview with the headteacher Mr Pearce and PE Coordinator Mr Webb. This was a fantastically beneficial experience for the students and proved that they were up to the task of being a playground friend. Check back for blogs and vlogs from our Playground Friends as the year progresses.

Go East Acton!
On this page, we will start posting reports, written by the children, sharing their sporting experiences. We will begin by looking at some reports of Year 3 and 4s football matches in the first round of the ESL.
Iman (Year 4, Maple Class) 16.12.15
On the 16.12.15 we played a match against two classes.
The classes were Chestnut Class and Cherry Class.
The first match was Red from Year 4 and Red from Year 3. The score was 5-0. Year 4 won!
The other side was Yellow team from Year 4 and the Yellow team from Year 3. The score was 2-0. Year 4 won!
The second match was Green team from Year 4 and Green team from Year 3. The score was 3-2 Year 3 won. :(
The other side was Blue team. The score was 5-0 to Year 4.
Then Cherry and Chestnut played one another.
Aisha (Year 4, Maple Class) 16.12.15
On Thursday we had a football match with Year 3 (Cherry and Chestnut). Mr Webb had organised the football matches. He had four Year 6s to help him during the matches. So we (Maple) came first to do some training.
After a while, Cherry and Chestnut came. Yellow Team (which I am in) and Red Team were in the first match. Because we have two pitches in the bottom playground, Red Team were allowed to play as well. Red Team were versing Chestnut Red Team and the other teams had to watch and cheer.
When the match was finished, we swapped so Blue Team were on the pitch and Green Team were on the pitch as well. We swapped again but this time Cherry played Chestnut.
Then we shook hands and wished everybody good luck.
Sara I (Year 4, Maple Class) 16.12.15
We anxiously entered the playground. Today we were versing Year 3!
Mr Webb called our teams to get our bibs and a ball to warm up with. After ten minutes, Year 3 came.
Blue Team (Year 3 and 4) and Green Team (Year 3 and 4) had to watch Red and Yellow play.
When we went to play I was really anxious. I wasn't sure if my teammates were also anxious. The whistle blew, then we played. When it was half-time, I was really tired. We were winning 3-0.
When half-time was over, I was in goal. I was really scared to let any goals through. My team scored two more goals. Then Blue Year 3 were close. They kicked...
They scored! I let a goal through. Still, we were winning. After a few minutes, the match ended. We won 5-1.
GO YEAR FOUR BLUE TEAM!
Mohammed (Year 4, Maple) 16.12.15
When we went outside I was ready for this. Then we were up. Their team looked good. The whistle blew and we got started.
Then I scored a goal. And a minute later Meshari scored a goal but Adam (Year 3) scored three goals and the score was 3-2. We lost!
A while later, we were against another Green Team and I knew what we had to do. I scored and it was over. The score was 1-0.
Angel (Year 4, Maple Class) 16.12.15
A few days before the last day of term, Year 4 and the Year 3s, were played one another at football.
We battled them very well. I was in the red team. The people who were in my team were Iman, Rafay, Thomas, Tasniem and Islam.
In the first match, my team actually won! Year 3 were good for their age.
Red, Yellow, Green, Blue, just like on Sports Day.
During the autumn term we have competed in football matches.
Next in spring term, is netball! And it will be athletics/multi-skills during the summer term.
Have a look at the pictures of the football matches below. I must commend the children on their sportsmanship during these matches. It was a pleasure to see and made the atmosphere really enjoyable and lovely.

Southfield Park Primary Friendly (30/6/15)
East Acton played superbly against Southfield Park Primary, on what was a very hot day. The final score was 3-2 to Southfield Park Primary, although as a team we felt that two of our goal efforts were wrongfully disallowed. This however, can happen in matches, and it about how you move forward from decisions that don't go your way. I was very impressed with our efforts and I am optimistic we can provide Southfield Park Primary an even more competitive game when they visit us. We'd like to thank Southfield for organising the game and congratulate them on their well earned victory.
John Perryn Primary Inter-school Football Tournament (19/6/15)
On Friday 19th June, John Perryn Primary School hosted an inter-school football competition. East Acton fielded a Year 5 team whowere up against many Year 6s. We achieved one win, two draws and three losses, which I think is a fantastic achievement against very skilled opposition. We'd like to thank John Perry Primary for hosting the tournament and we hope to return next year and be even more competitive. Congratulations to the winners at St. Vicent Primary.
QPR Year 6 Leavers' Tournament at Goal Wembley (10/6/15)
Below are pictures of Year 6's efforts in a Year 6 leavers' tournament, hosted by QPR. The competition was incredibly fierce and to be honest, we were beaten well. However, East Acton were commended for their great sportsmanship, on a day when many children from other schools did not. As a school, we compete fairly and with great respect for the opposition. We should be proud of that. Well done Year 6, we hope to hear of your future sporting successes in secondary school.
QPR Football Fun Day (2/6/15)
On Tuesday 2nd June, QPR organised a second 'Football Fun Day' at The Park Club. The children were put through their paces by the QPR coaches. All children displayed fantastic football skills and had a great time. Thanks to QPR once again and we look forward to another fun filled day next academic year. Have a look at Maple Class' skills in the photos below.
This project encouraged students in Year 5 to be adventurous and imaginative in planning and launching a new Fitness Session that would inspire activeness, as well as encourage students to have ‘Active Minds’. The students put their creativity and organisation to the test as they designed their own Fitness Session. Once their sessions were pitch perfect invitations were sent out to Year 4 and Year 6 to take part in a trial run. The feedback was very positive, many students enjoyed the activities that had been put together and thought they really got their hearts pumping!
Year 3 QPR Football Festival (10/3/15)
On Tuesday March 10th, ten Year 3 children were selected to play in a football festival organised by QPR Football Club. 21 schools from west London competed in the competition which was played at the Westway Sports Centre. There were no league tables, or scores recorded; just lots of football. East Acton played 6 matches in total on the day. There were victories, draws and losses, with some fantastic skill and teamwork displayed from all of our children. The children had a lot of fun and learnt a great deal from the experience. We look forward to more competitions in the future. Have a look at the pictures from the day below. GO EAST ACTON!
QPR Football Training at The Park Club
On February 5th, QPR held a training day at The Park Club. Year 2 to 6 enjoyed an hour of training each. The kids performed fantastically and really enjoyed their sessions. We would like to thank QPR and their staff for putting on a fantastic day. Here are some pictures below.

As part of the Olympic Legacy, the Government are providing Primary Schools throughout Britain with extra funding for PE and Sport. This is fantastic news and will ensure that as a school we can provide better equipment and extra opportunities in sport. We have already used some of the additional funding to buy wall bars for our school hall. These will provide a fun and challenging resource for Gymnastics lessons and have already proved to be very popular with pupils.
A full breakdown of how we are spending the Sports Premium can be found on this website under the 'KEY INFORMATION' tab above.
YOUTH SPORT TRUST BRONZE QUALITY MARK
East Acton Primary have been awarded a Bronze Quality Mark by the Youth Sport Trust for our PE and Sport provision. We have demonstrated our commitment to improving PE over the coming years. It is our aim to instill a philosophy and vision for sport that will engage all children in their physical learning. We aim for all our PE lessons to be inclusive and provide activities that develop all pupils' agility, balance and coordination (ABCs). This will make certain that all children are 'physically literate' and healthy throughout their lives. Over the next five years we will aim to move from Bronze to Silver, and eventually, Gold Youth Sport Trust Quality Marks.
Year 2 Multi-Skills Competition with Berrymede Infants
On Tuesday 7th of July 2014, Holly Class (Year 2) competed against Year 2 students from Berrymede Infants in a multi-skills competition at East Acton Primary. The children competed in activities that tested their running, ball skills, jumping ability, balance and core strength. It was a really fun competition and both sets of children demonstrated fantastic fundamental skills. Year 2 have been using the FUNS program all year to help improve their fundamental physical skills. It was evident from Holly Class' excellent performance in the competition, that the children do now have much improved physical literacy and this will help them to engage and compete more in PE and sport in Key Stage 2.
The children gained points for their class by completing activities successfully. Sadly, Year 2 had one child missing that day so we lost the competition on points gained, but overall our children did better individually. Berrymede performed very well and I was very impressed with their behaviour and physical skills. We hope to compete against them in new academic year with a full class.
I would like to thank the staff at Berrymede Infants and Iris Yee from The School Sports Partnership at Featherstone High, for their help organising the competition.
JOHN PERRYN MATCHES
Back in March the Year 5 and 6 boys played two friendly 7-a-side matches against John Perryn Primary School. The first match was played at East Acton and ended in a 4-3 loss. The East Acton boys had a stellar first half, establishing a fantastic 3-0 lead. Unfortunately, John Perryn showed great courage and resilience, scoring four in the second half to gain the victory.
The following week East Acton went over to John Perryn for the away fixture. Yet again, the East Acton team demonstrated fantastic spirit and skill and carried a 1-0 lead late into the second half. Sadly, they couldn't quite hold on and conceded a late goal. The final result was a very respectable 1-1 draw.
Future football fixtures will be reported here and we are currently in the process of acquiring a new kit. Watch this space... :)
Back on March 21st, East Acton ran a mile for the Sport Relief Charity. We managed to raise an impressive £358.13. We thank the Park Club for letting us use their grounds. Here are some pictures of what was a brilliant day.
