Year 1 & 2:

Physical Education

At Holy Trinity CE Primary School we believe in the importance of developing ‘Sport and Healthy lifestyles’ amongst our children and local community. We promote a long term healthy lifestyle that is enjoyable and fulfilling. Throughout the year, we will develop this through a range of sport activities including: athletics, dance, gymnastics, games, aquatics and OAA. We also like to mix some Maths in with our P.E. with ‘Wake and Shake’ every morning!


The national curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities

  • are physically active for sustained periods of time

  • engage in competitive sports and activities

  • lead healthy, active lives

In all of our P.E. lessons, we ensure we are following the School Games values. Our Sports Crew are always on the lookout for pupils who are going above and beyond during the school day. Has your child received a School Games Value sticker today?

  • Determination
  • Honesty
  • Respect
  • Passion
  • Teamwork
  • Self-Belief




Rossendale Virtual Orienteering Competition


Following the success of the virtual mile, together with Pendle Forest Orienteers and Rossendale Leisure Trust, there is currently a ‘Rossendale Virtual Orienteering Competition’ running from 22nd June- 6th July and would love it if you could share and promote on your class pages. 

There are courses set out in two parks across Rossendale: one at Whittaker Park (Haslingden Road, BB4 6RE) and the other at Marl Pits (Newchurch Road, Rawtenstall, BB4 7SN), participants can take part in either or both of the parks.

Everyone that enters will receive a certificate. The schools with the most entries (nursery, primary and secondary) will be crowned the overall winners.

To take part, download the ‘Maprunf’ App on your smart phone. You will see that there is a ‘short course’ and a ‘long course’ for both of the parks. The short course is for EYFS up to Year 7.

Your phone will make a sound each time you pass through a control and through the finish line. It will then automatically give you a time. To enter your time, please click on the link: Rossendale Virtual Orienteering Results Form

How to stay active at Holy Trinity

As a school we ensure our children are staying fit and healthy by ensuring all children are involved in physical activity for at least 30 minutes per day. Below is a heatmap of a typical day at Holy Trinity Primary School showing the different levels of activity throughout the day.



Inactive: All, or almost all, of the time is spent sitting down

Little activity: Sitting down might be broken up with short bursts of activity. Pupils will spend some working time standing up and moving around the teaching space

Some activity: There will be some deliberate, planned movement and physical activity built into the session

High activity There will be significant periods of physical activity that are planned and built into the session for all pupils
