At Great Marsden St John's we love to learn new sport skills and keep active. PE is taught by our PPA partners, Junior Jam. We learn a range of skills covering: games, dance, gymnastics, athletics and outdoor adventurous activity. In Year 4, our children take part in 1.5 terms of swimming lessons, where they develop swimming strokes and life saving skills. 

In addition, our children have the opportunity to take part in lunchtime and after school clubs such as football club which is run by Mr Brown. Our children have access to lots of outdoor equipment to use at play and lunchtimes. We love using our outdoor trim trail and gym equipment, which Friends of St John's raised money to help us purchase. The children in EYFS, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 also have access to their own outdoor areas. 

Fridays are our favourite day of the week! Every Friday, we complete a whole school jog, running three times around the whole school. As well as running a mile around the yard each Monday with our class!
