They have been assessed Using Yoga Bugs Performance Review Impact and Change Programme in the following areas – social, emotional, physical, behavioural and PSHE. All students have made between 1 and 4 progress points. See separate assessments.

We have recently started a PMLD Yoga Bugs session. Staff have reported children have settled well into the familiar routine and making yoga positions with greater ease and some even independently!

Pupils in year 5/6 have worked towards their Gymnastics Level 1 and Level  2 awards. Students will perform their routines for parents in the summer term.


Y5/6 pupils have recently started working with Evolve Karate Company. Each child has a star chart where each week they are aiming to be awarded a star for skills such as teamwork, respect, self – control, confidence, focus, effort and sportsmanship. Pupils were awarded their first belts in whole school assembly in the summer term.


Team sports with Silver class has proven very successful. It has really challenged their ability to work together and it has made significant improvements in their team work skills. Several students who found it difficult to stay in the lessons are now taking part for longer periods of the session.


Staff have been upskilled through attending Yoga Bugs sessions and now use ideas from sessions in their own lessons.







Staff attend these sessions and use their knowledge in their own PE and literacy lessons.
