Physical Education (P.E.)
Physical Education develops children’s physical skills, confidence, capabilities and potential. It gives opportunities for children to be creative and competitive while learning to work with and respect others.
At Cranleigh C of E Primary School children learn how to plan, perform and evaluate actions, often in pairs and small groups, helping them to develop the quality and effectiveness of their work. We promote a positive attitude towards active lifestyles and aim to introduce children to lifelong physical activity.
Children in all year groups will be working with specific sports coaches to enhance their skills further. All children also have access to sporting extra curricular clubs.

Cranleigh C of E Primary School runs a programme of house sports throughout the academic year for key stage 2. Children enter tournaments for football, rounders and netball in their houses to battle for the inter-house cups and trophies. The biggest event is Sports Day in the summer term where both key stage one and two children partake in a variety of races. Points gained at these sporting events contribute to the overall house point totals for the year.

On Thursday 16th January, I took a group of Year 4 children to Glebelands School for a Dodgeball competition. We had two teams, a Cranleigh Primary team and a Cranmead team (made a second team with Park mead). We played against lots of different schools and won all of our games. Both teams made it to the final and Cranleigh Primary finished 1st and Cranmead 2nd! Overall, we had a fantastic time at the Dodgeball event and learned a lot

On Friday 1st February, I took some Year 3 and 4's to play in a Dodgeball Tournament against other local schools. We had a Cranleigh team and made up another team with some children from Park Mead. Both teams played extremely well and our school won the values certificates (voted by other schools) which included: determination, honesty, passion, respect, self-belief and teamwork. Our 'Cran-mead' team came 2nd in their pool, so played against Park Mead for 3rd place overall. Unfortunately, they lost this game, but still managed to come 4th out of 8 teams. Our 'Cranleigh' team came 1st in their pool, so played Wonersh and Shamley Green in the final! We managed to dodge lots of shots, but in the end we lost by 1 point and came 2nd overall. We had super afternoon playing dodgeball and they all played really well!
On Tuesday, 29th Jan 2019, Year 3 played a football match against Park Mead School. We worked out our positions and chose Ben to be our Captain. Alfie volunteered to be our Goalkeeper. We played so well that Alfie and our defender Jodie only touched the ball TWICE! Nicholas, Oscar, Bailey and Tola almost scored, but they had a very good goalkeeper who stopped every shot. Kevin, Bailey and Courtney were fantastic midfielders and ensured the ball stayed in our half. Throughout the match, we worked hard as a team, finding space and passing to each other to score a goal. The match finished 0-0, but we hope to win our next match.
