Buckden School has a qualified sports coach who works with all the children in the school. Our sporting aims are to provide children with a balanced range of activities and the opportunity to develop these in more specialist clubs. Each week our children work on at least one area of the physical curriculum. Dance, gymnastics and karate all take place in the school hall and involve all the children following various themes. Through dance and movement, they learn how to express themselves whilst being able to work at their own level. Whereas gymnastics, involves learning how to use equipment safely and acquire, develop and gain new skills. Karate encourages the children to explore different skills showing precision, control and fluency, as well as the art of self discipline and self belief. Games, outdoor and adventurous activities take place outside and children learn a variety of skills that are developed into small games and team building situations.
