PE and Sport

21 - 22

Spring Term 2022


Welcome back to the new term. The Autumn Term saw a quiet start in terms of PE across the county. Many matches were postponed or rescheduled due to weather and Covid 19 issues. Further restrictions have currently been added so we are waiting eagerly for inter-school sporting events to take place. We are lucky enough to have Tom from Paces to deliver high quality sporting instruction to all of our children throughout the week. 

Paces - Monday Key Stage 1

             Thursday Key Stage 2

These sessions take place alongside a teacher led PE or swimming lesson each week. Class 4 will be swimming on a Wednesday morning this term (Please remember swimming hats and goggles as necessary).

After school clubs remain very popular with long waiting lists for both Drama with The Charming Theatre Company and Dance with Dynamic Dance. If you find that your child isn't a fan of either of these clubs please let us know as soon as possible so that their place can be offered to another child. 




Welcome back to all of our After School Club providers all ready for a Summer Term of activity and enjoyment.

Paces - Tom is with us on Mondays (KS1) and Thursdays (KS2) for PE sessions and After School Club for each Key Stage. Welcome back Tom!

The Charming Theatre Company - Ed is with us on Mondays after school for KS2 drama. Huge congratulations to Ed and his family on the birth of Percy (delivered by Ed himself who was auditioning for 'Call the Midwife!'

Dynamic Dance - Ryan is with us on Tuesdays after school for KS2 Dance. Welcome back Ryan!

As Lockdown eases sporting provision and restrictions on activity are starting to ease. We'll keep you updated as we get further announcements. We're delighted to tell you that Class 6 will be undergoing an intensive swimming course straight after half term.

We are delighted to announce that with the easing of the Lockdown restrictions Paces, Dynamic Dance and The Charming Theatre Company will be re-joining us after Easter.

A big 'Thank you' to Tom from Paces who was able to join us for school time PE sessions during Spring 2. Tom's sessions with Key Stage 2 will return to Thursday afternoons after the Easter break.

We are thoroughly looking forward to resuming some of our favourite sporting activities and getting outside into the sunshine. Since we returned to school the children have enjoyed hockey and netball in KS2 and multi-skills in KS1. Please remember that your child/children will need a hat and sunscreen for their outdoor PE sessions, as well as their re-fillable water bottle. Thank you.



Dear Parents

It is with regret that I have to announce the Paces will not be providing in-school support during this Lockdown Period. Paces have decided that in order to keep their staff and our children as safe as possible they need to temporarily suspend their provision. We look forward to welcoming Tom back at the end of Lockdown. We'll miss you Tom!



We're delighted to welcome coach Tom Bullock, from Paces, back into school this year to continue his sessions with the children. Our youngest children have settled into their sessions beautifully and our older children continue to work on their various sporting skills with great success.



Welcome back to Ed Owen, owner of the Charming Theatre Company who continues his drama sessions with our Key Stage Two children this term. It is lovely to see so many returners to this group and we're delighted to watch the drama as it takes place.



Another huge welcome back to Ryan, owner of Dynamic Dance, for our hugely popular Street Dance Club. This is another club where children want to come back time and time again to develop and extend their dance skills (ably 'assisted' by a number of teaching staff on occasion!).



We have been very lucky to receive a selection of sports equipment from the Premier League Primary Stars after taking part in a Nationwide sporting survey. We were one of the few lucky schools to respond super quickly and were rewarded with this fantastic prize! We were delighted to receive bibs, hoops, balls, beanbags and cones that we can't wait to put to good use in the coming months.

Sports day and cross country









Our annual school sports day was a roaring success.  All the children participated in a number of different races and activities. We also saw a mum's and dad's sprint. Congratulations to the blue team who were the overall winners. All the children were fantastic and great team players.

In the afternoon the whole school took part in our cross country at Ewyas Harold playing fields.  It was a mild day and lots of parents came to show their support. All the children participated with class R and 2 running one lap and class 4 and 6 running a longer two laps! We were very proud of the children not only for their determination, positive attitudes and good behaviour, but also proud of their sportsmanship and support of the other children. 

Thank you to the PTFA who sold refreshments and ice creams throughout, and to all those involved in the day, organising and supporting. Well done all!

Year 3-4 Cricket

" When we got to Lucton School cricket field we did a bit of training - batting, fielding, bowling and wicket keeping. Then we played our first game - we won by one run against Eardisley. Then we played against Weobley and we beat them too. After that was the semi-final but we, unfortunately, lost that game. This meant that we came joint third in the competition. We had a great day and were really proud of ourselves". By F, M, M and L

A huge thank you to the parents, friends, relatives, coaches and staff who supported the team. Well done boys!

County South 9 A-side.


A huge congratulations to the Year 5/6 boys who showed teamwork, dedication and sheer talent to win the County South 9 A-side tournament held at the Ross Juniors ground today. The team played against Riverside, Madley, Much Birch and St. Mary's (Fownhope) with the scores being 2-1, 0-0, 4-0 and 2-0.

Our goal scorers were HR, JW, AP and C SJ, ably set up by a strong and supportive team. Mrs Chesworth reports that the play was 'utterly glorious' with the boys setting up clean lines and masterful technique.

The County final will now be played against Ledbury at Edgar Street on Tuesday 7th May with a 4:30pm kick-off. Ewyas have been drawn as the Home Team.

Year 5/6 Football Tournament

 A huge well done to the boys for taking part in the Football Tournament in Leominster. They played with a superb attitude and made us all supremely proud! Playing Clifford in the first game, the score was 3-0 to us with Sam J, Harry M and Cam S-J being the goal scorers. Game two against Hampton Dene saw a 2-1 win to us with Harry R scoring both goals. The third game was played against Leominster with a narrow 1-0 defeat. This led to 3 teams being tied with the same number of points. After a goal difference and head to head adjudication we were, unfortunately, knocked out.

    We are immensely proud of the teamwork that the boys displayed. They organised their own team talks and managed team substitutions for themselves. Well done boys, a great job!

Hi 5 Netball Tournament

Well done to all of the children who took part in this tournament. Netball is a growing sport at Ewyas Harold and the children's enthusiasm outshone some of the more 'seasoned' players. A super effort was made by all.

Year 1 and 2 Small Schools Football Tournament

Well done to the children who took part in this tournament after bad weather caused it to be cancelled last year. The Years 1 and 2 had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon developing their skills and starting to work as a team. Unfortunately we had no wins this afternoon, better luck next time!




A big Welcome Back after the Summer Holidays, we hope you're feeling fit, active and ready to move!

Swimming continues to be on a Tuesday afternoon. Class 6 will be enjoying their sessions this Autumn Term. We welcome back Dan from 'With The Ball' coaching who will be working with Class 6 and Reception on a Monday and Class 4 and Class 2 on a Tuesday.  Our own Mrs Smith will continue inspiring all with her endless energy whilst completing dance sessions with Class 2 on Thursdays. We also welcome Ryan from 'Dynamic Dance' who joins the Ewyas Harold sports team with his dance sessions on a Monday after school,  


Summer Term 2018


Sports Day took an eventful turn this year with the onset of torrential rain on the morning of the event! The earlier heatwave had led us to decide to have Sports Day in the morning, instead of the afternoon, as originally planned. As luck would have it the rain cleared up leaving us with a beautiful morning. The children then had a nail-biting morning of fun and excitement as they took part in races and cheered on their friends and family. A huge 'Congratulations' to all of the children and their grown ups who took part, with a special mention to Yellow House who were the overall winners. We'd also like to extend the 'Thank You' to the PTFA who, once again, were invaluable in their support.

Another action packed Summer of sporting events took place over the Summer Term. Many of the children had the opportunity to take part in inter-school tournaments - with football and netball being the main focus. Lots of fun (and success!) was had by all who took part.



Friday 25th May 2018

The Year 5/6 Girls Football Team had a fabulous afternoon at The Ross Football Tournament this afternoon.

All of the girls have to be praised for their grit and determination during soggy, wet and cold conditions. 

Our fledgling team really blossomed, they showed great marking skills and super game awareness.

Unfortunately, this afternoon they were outclassed by some of the other teams, but look forward to honing their skills in the coming weeks.

Well done girls, you have lots to be proud of!
