Sundorne Infants are proud to announce the fantastic achievement of Gold Quality Mark for outstanding PE and Sport in School

Severndale Academy and Sundorne Infants Sports and PE partnership

Over the past 12 months Sundorne infants have been working in partnership with Severndale Academy to deliver PE sessions to children across both schools.

Our aim has been to ensure all children have the opportunity to engage, enjoy and achieve together.

This term our year 1 Blue class have been working closely with year 1 and 2 class, L8 from Severndale; focusing on rugby activities which include ball handling, attacking, defending and communicating.

All of the children have shown great team work together developing their agility, balance and coordination to engage new skills and play competitive games.


Excellent work and well done to Blue Class! And to our friends at Severndale.

Also can I say thank you to Miss Osman and Jayne for their support throughout this partnership, it really has been a great success for everyone involved.

Cricket Competition Spring 2019

Teams from each class were divided into either Butterflies or Ladybirds for the match. They scored runs by striking the ball past a boundary line and by running from cone to cone.

All of the children got a chance to bat and field and they did so with smiles on their faces. They also showed great respect clapping each other after the game.



















Well done to the Ladybirds for a great performance, to the Butterflies for their impressive team win and to all the children who played.
