Overall Objective – To develop the pedagogical approaches in PE lessons
At Stone St Mary’s C.E. Primary School, all our children partake in an inspiring and creative curriculum in all subjects, which allows them to develop knowledge, skills, and enthusiasm in their learning. This is applied to our PE curriculum. This then ensures that our children leave Stone St Mary’s physically educated along with the knowledge, skills and motivation required for them to lead a healthy, active lifestyle. This enthusiasm will help them with leading a healthy lifestyle as well as participating in physical activity and sport. Our children have many opportunities to find their sport and have the chance to represent our school in a wide range of tournaments, opportunities and after school clubs. Our vision and values within our school are linked to our overall teaching of PE, ensuring collaboration, perseverance in a caring environment where knowledge and skills can grow.
Below are our expectations for the end of each key stage:

Tuesday saw the return of football tournaments. We faced 4 schools from Dartford and the boys gave it their best. Harry scored 2 goals and Ollie scored 1 goal over the tournament. The boys showed great sportsmanship and were proud to represent the school. Overall, the boys came second in their group and just missed out on the final.
On Thursday 29th September, 10 of our year 5 and 6's represented Stone St Mary's at a tournament of schools in the Dartford area.
Despite being their first time playing together, the girls managed to come 4th within their group. They all played extremely well and represented the school in a great manner. They should all be very proud of themselves.
Thursday saw 10 lucky dodgeballers in year 3/4 compete against 6 other Trust schools.
Full of excitement and optimism, they were eager to start. After winning their first match, they were so pleased! Leila was the last one standing on the next match (which we lost). Our fourth match saw Timi being the last one standing. Timi was on a roll and caught the ball, which bought the whole team back into the game 😀 and then Henry caught the winning shot! In our final match, Dami caught the ball, which saw the whole team back in!
Despite losing several matches, the excitement was still there! Well done to our dodgeballers for showing great sportsmanship!
Example of the skills we learnt
Check out Creedan's skills!
On Wednesday, seven of our year 3/4's took part in a Racket Skills Event organised by Dartford School Games.
We had a great afternoon, testing our catching, throwing and batting skills. Each child showed amazing sportsmanship and persevered throughout the afternoon! Well done to all that took part!! 🏸🥎
On Thursday, we took part in the Dartford District Schools FA Year 3/4 Champions Trophy Tournament at Princes Park Dartford FC.We played 5 different schools in our group; winning 3, drawing one and lost 1 game, this meant we came 2nd in our group and were through to the final the next day! We were given a tough group for the final, but the boys and girls gave it their best and finished 3rd beating Craylands, Sedleys and a draw against Joydens Wood! Overall, the boys and girls played extremely well and demonstrated excellent sporting values across both days!
Year 5/6 Community Cup Tournament - November 16th
Although we had a slow start towards the first 2 games only having a 0-0 draw, everyone managed to persevere to get some very crucial goals. We went on to go undefeated throughout the group stage. However, we came second in our group it was only first place who went through.
All the children had an amazing time representing their school and showed our sporting values in the best way.
Just a bit of side line dancing 🕺👯♂️
For this tournament each school was given a country to represent, we were given Mexico.
During the tournament everyone showed great enthusiasm towards each game and didn’t give up until the last minute. Unfortunately, although we didn’t get the result we were hoping for, everyone should be so proud of them for demonstrating sportsmanship and all our school values.
As part of their gymnastics this term, year 6 were able to use the equipment that we see in the hall every day! It's safe to say that everyone thoroughly enjoyed using the bars, ropes, trapeziums and spring board!
Yesterday, saw the year 5/6 boys football team take on Fleetdown Primary in the FA Match (organised by Dartford FC). The first half we played really well, despite Fleetdown scoring one goal - we still felt hopeful. The second half we continued to play well, but then we unluckily conceded two more goals. All the boys showed all values of sport especially passion. We are looking forward to a friendly match in the future.
Monday afternoon, saw some of the year 5/6 girls take part in a FA match against New Ash Green. Stone (wearing blue in the pictures) showed great defense in the first half! At half term, the score was 2 - 1 to New Ash Green. However, the second half was not in our favour! As soon as one goal was scored by the opposition, the spirit of Stone was slowly dwindling. Unfortunately, Stone lost against New Ash Green.
Year 2 have been evaluating their group performances! It's safe to say they all thoroughly enjoyed showing off their dances and receiving feedback from their peers.
During term 3, year six have been learning the skills to play a match of badminton. From learning to serve the shuttlecock, to having a rally with a partner to then being able to have a match over the net.
Year 6 definitely had enjoyed learning the skills to play badminton this term!
Term 4, our year sixes are focusing on tennis. Their first week saw them test their hand-eye coordination and their control of the racket and ball.
Tuesday saw a squad of 10 year 5 and 6 pupils take part in the Trust Netball tournament at St George's Secondary school.
They went feeling proud and determined to do their best - which they most definitely do! They smashed all three of their games in their group before heading to the final against Sutton-at-Hone.
After the 5 minutes, it was a draw between the two schools. An extra 2 minutes was added, and Stone St Mary's were lucky to score another goal! Therefore, making them the winners of the tournament! 🏆
We are all super proud of our squad that took part in the tournament!

Monday 6th March, saw some of our netballers take part in a netball friendly against New Ash Green. Due to the weather, the match took place inside - but this didn't faze them.
Out of the 4 quarters, Stone won 3!

Wednesday saw some of our year 5/6 footballers represent Stone in the Premier League Shield Event.
During the group stage, they played 5 matches. With thanks to Samuel, Carter and Henry for scoring goals in 4 of these matches. They came 2nd in the group! ⚽
This led to them playing in the Semi-Final against Dartford Bridge. With the match over, it turned to penalties which unfortunately we lost.
They didn't let this faze them as they had one final match to take part in - the decider of 3rd place. Samuel scored the winning goal to help us win 3rd place in the event.
Well done to all that took part - we are all super proud of you! ⚽
