PE Lessons

PE lessons are taught by class teachers and specialist coaches, covering ball games, athletics and dance.  During their time in KS2, children will also attend the Dolphin Centre for weekly swimming lessons, covering the basics of the 4 strokes and personal safety in the water.

Children are provided with various opportunities to join clubs and represent the school at sports festivals and competitive events.  We are affiliated to the Darlington Schools Sports Partnership (DSSP).

The school benefits from extensive sporting facilities, including a large playground and playing field with athletics track and a variety of keep-fit stations.  Pupils are also able to access the MUGA (Multi Use Games Area) for PE lessons and leisure time during breaks.

EYFS Festival of Agility

Some of the Reception children took part in a festival of agility
and balance at Eastbourne Sports Complex. The children were so excited! Once
split into two groups, they took part in six different activities in which they had to use
their balance skills, their listening skills, their speed and agility. Everyone had a great
time and was a great ambassador for Firthmoor Primary.

Judo ‘Taster’ Session

Tennis ‘Taster’ Session

Y5LJ had the opportunity to take part in a Tennis Taster Session. Children were taught how to hold the racket correctly and some basic racket and ball skills.

Street Dance 

This half term Y4MT have been learning about a dance style called ‘street dance’. We created a routine to the song ‘Club Can’t Handle it’.  During the routine we worked as a class in canon and unison and worked in pairs or small groups.  When the children worked in pairs they created their own sequences, making sure that the movements they put together fitted the 8 beat per mini sequence.


Ballet Lorent (Dance)

A number of classes from years 2 to 5 had the pleasure of working with a ballet company from Newcastle called Ballet Lorent. Two of the dancers from the company led workshops with the children over the 2 days. The children learned to express themselves through movement and dance; based on the book ‘The Lost Happy Endings’ by Carol Ann Duffy. Over the course of the 2 days, 15 children have been selected to perform with the ballet company on stage at The Hippodrome Theatre in February in a dance adaptation of the book. All the children had an amazing time and learned so much throughout the workshops. The children who have been lucky enough to be chosen to perform on stage are thrilled at this amazing opportunity and can’t wait to start rehearsing!

Here are some of the pupils who took part with their certificates which they were awarded to commemorate the occasion
