The PE Premium Fund has a positive impact on our school.
It enables us to attend many tournaments throughout the year. It also allows us to run sports clubs after school, buy sports equipment, provide extra swimming sessions and develop teachers' skills in teaching PE.
For further information on how we spend the PE Premium, please refer to "About Us/Key Information".
Year 5/6 Football at Carrow Road
On the 15th May, selected students from Year 5 and 6 attended a football tournament at the Norwich City football stadium (Carrow Road). This being a once in a lifetime event, everyone (even the teachers) were extremely excited. Despite being up against squads from Norwich such as Langley Prep (who organised the event) and Norwich School, both the boys and the girls who went did really well. The girls won the shield in a sudden-death penalty shootout with the boys narrowly missing out on the final (but they still did brilliantly!)
It was a really well organised event: there was a programme to assist both players and managers on who they were up against and the medals and certificates were all finely engraved and well presented (and… we brought some home with us!)
Furthermore, we had the weather on our side as it was a very hot and sunny day. The officials were very helpful and welcoming and the players played well. It was a brilliant way of celebrating doing well in our SATs and us leaving primary school after 7 years. On the whole, it was a brilliant tournament and I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Year 3 Skittleball Tournament
On 27th February, our first match was against Somerleyton and we won 8-1. It was quite tricky. The next two rounds we won and the last round was against Gunton and we drew. Then it went into extra time and we scored. It was a free throw to Gunton and they scored. At least we all tried our hardest. That’s all we can do! Then when the games were finished every school that was remaining had to come and sit down and then they announced the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place schools. The school that won was Gunton and 2nd was us!

When we got to Denes High School, we played against Somerleyton. At the end of the round the score was 8-1. We won! Then we played another two rounds and we won both of them. Then we played against Gunton. It was quite difficult. It was a tie at the end so it went into sudden death. After sudden death it was 3-2. We lost. But overall we came in second place.

Year 6 Quicksticks Tournament
On Thursday 11th October, a team of Year 6 children represented Blundeston CEVC Primary School at a Quicksticks tournament at East Point Academy.
I really enjoyed the warm-ups we did with the different coaches! My personal favourite was when we dribbled the ball down the cones then passed to the person next to us. We then repeated this pass-follow technique and had a shot at the goal.
The coaches were lovely and got involved. The other team had lovely manners as my team and the opponents’ team were eager to give each other a proper handshake. We stayed on pitch 2 the whole day which saved the muddle of going from pitch to pitch. First, we played Corton and won 2-1. Next, we played Woods Loke and drew 2-2. Finally, we played Westwood and won 3-0.
Our referee was amazing. He got involved but he was fair (he made a little joke when the time was right). The student helpers were helpful too.
Back to the referee – during the first match I managed to trip over somebody’s stick and scrape skin off my thumb. The ref came over and made sure I was okay as well as the other team. Due to our previous scores, we had to play Roman Hill in the quarter finals and won 2-0. We then played the semi-final against Albert Pye and lost 1-3. Then we played Gunton in the third place play-off and lost 1-2.
Overall we came 4th out of 20 schools so we were happy with the final result. I will never forget that tournament!
