Team Games After School Club

Every week on tuesday after school I am running a team games club for year 5 & 6. This week the pupils made their own team name and competed against each other for points in bench ball. Every week I am going to post the results good luck to all the teams!

Sportlectics = 16 points
Chimpy champs = 21 points
Brock the dogs = 15 points
Original spirits = 11 points


Year 3/4 and 5/6 took part in a danceathon today! It was excellent. Year 3/4 have been taking part in a contemporary dance unit based on 5 dance actions. Year 5/6 have been learning the Lindyhop and put their own twist on it! Please look at your own blogs, where you should find your class dance, but here is a preview of one.

Please leave a comment to let me know if you enjoyed the Dance Unit! And of course explain why!

Miss Jones

Hi, my name is Diana Jones and my role at Benton Park is to deliver high quality Physical Education to your child.  I teach at Heaton Manor but also spend time working in all the Primary Schools.

I love working here at Benton Park! In key stage 1 I am concentrating on developing your child’s fundamental movements through multi-skills, ball skills and gymnastics.  In key stage 2 I am delivering a diverse PE curriculum covering a wide range of sports.  I am also here to provide any talented pupil a sporting pathway into local sports clubs and teams.

Alongside this I will be promoting local sporting clubs and events for all children to participate in.  If you have any queries or questions regarding access to local sports clubs please don’t hesitate to leave me a comment and I will respond.
