Phoenix Primary School ‘Where We Rise to the Challenge’

Recent PE & School Sport Events


Skip2bfit Visit Wednesday 5th September, 2018.


On Wednesday 5th September we were visited by Mr Gibson, the Skip2bfit specialist who spoke to the children about the health and fitness benefits of skipping and the importance of trying your best and never giving up.


All children then had a go at the Skip2bfit challenge, which involved skipping for two minutes and recording how many skips you achieved. Children then, after a rest, had to skip for another two minutes, trying to better their first attempt - which many children did.


Mr Gibson then delivered a session after school for staff, which was great fun, but which left many staff appreciating just how hard skipping for a period of time actually is and how very unfit they actually are!!


Thank you to Mr Gibson and well done to all the children for persevering and never giving up.

FFT Girls Football Competition Friday 13th July, 2018

Food for Thought Inter School Girls Football Competition - Friday 13th July, 2018 @ Christ the King Primary School, Liverpool


On Friday 13th July some Year 6 girls attended at the above mentioned venue to take part in an Inter School Football Competition. For some of the girls, this was the first time they had ever taken part in a competitive match.


Placed in Group 2, the girls competed against OLA, OLI, St. Gregory's and Much Woolton and won two games, lost one game and drew one. 


There were some fantastic performances on the day from Aisha in goal, Emma at centre back and Hida in midfield, but all the girls were fantastic.


A great day and experience was had by all, topped off with a superb BBQ lunch provided by Food for Thought.


Well done all.

KS1 Fun Sportathon Day Tuesday 10th July, 2018.


On Tuesday 10th July, some Year 1 children attended at the I M Marsh Campus for an Inter School Sportathon day organised by LSSP - a day where the children tried out different activities that they may not have experienced before.

On the day, children took part in:


Balance Bikes

Inflatable Assault Course




It was a very hot day, but all the children had great fun.


Key Stage 1 Athletics Competition Monday 2nd July, 2018.


On Monday 2nd July, a team of Year 2 children attended at Archbishop Beck Catholic Sports College to take part in an Inter School Athletics competition.


All children competed in all the events which were:

50m Sprint

Standing Long Jump

Speed Bounce

Howler Throw


On an incredibly hot day, all the children gave 100% and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.


Well done everyone.



Yr 5&6 Athletics Monday 25th June, 2018.

Year 5&6 Athletics Heats Monday 25th June, 2018.


On Monday 25th June, ten Year 6 children (5 boys and 5 girls) attended at Childwall Sports & Science Academy to take part in Primary Inter School Athletics Heats.

Every child took park in every activity, those being the 75m Sprint, Standing Long Jump, 600m Distance Run and the Howler Throw. Points were awarded  according to times and distances achieved.

On an incredibly hot day, with temperatures in the high 20's, all children gave their best efforts and recorded some very good times and distances. Notable performances came from Aisha in the Standing Long Jump, Emma in the Howler Throw and Abass in the 75m Sprint.


From thirteen Schools competiting, only the top four progressed to the City Finals and unfortunately Phoenix finished in sixth place.


However, a great day and experience was had by all.


Year 5&6 Volleyball Coaching and Competition Day

Year 5&6 Volleyball Coaching and Competition Day


On Friday 18th May, some Year 6 children from School attended at Notre Dame RC College, Liverpool, to take part in an Inter School Volleyball Coaching and Competition Day.


In the morning session, the children were coached by two professional Volleyball players and practiced the key skills of the game - the serve, the dig, the volley pass and the spike or smash. They were also introduced to the basic rules which they would need for the afternoon competition.


In the afternoon, Schools were placed into Groups of four - each School playing each other in a timed match. Bearing in mind that this was the first time that the children had played Volleyball, Phoenix did very well -winning one match, losing one and agonisingly losing their final Group match to a point scored by the opposition with the last touch of the ball!


Despite not progressing from the Group Stages, the children had a very enjoyable day learning new skills and taking part in a previously unknown sport.


Well done all.

Lacrosse Competition

Year 6 Lacrosse Competition, Tuesday 17th April, 2018.


On Tuesday 17th April, some Year 6 children attended at the Toxteth Firefit Hub to take part in an Inter School Lacrosse Competition. Preparation for this competition had taken place in curriculum time, where the children had recently completed a Unit of Lacrosse as part of their PE lessons.


Placed in a Group with three other Schools, Phoenix drew the first match and narrowly lost the two remaining matches. However, as the matches progressed, Phoenix performances improved dramatically, but unfortunately, we did not qualify for the semi final places.


However, as always, this was a very valuable and enjoyable experience for the children, in a sport which is not as "mainstream" as other sports presently covered in Schools.


Well done to all those who took part.

Year 5 KInball

Year 5 Kinball Event


On Friday 13th April, 2018, a group of Year 5 children attended at the Greenbank Sports Academy to take part in the first ever Inter Schools Kinball event. 


Kinball is a game played by three teams on one pitch at the same time, with the aim to keep a giant ball from touching the floor once it has been hit.


As this was the first time any of the children had actually played Kinball, it took the children a few games to get into the swing of things, but after that they soon got the hang of it and put in some superb performances.


As this was the first ever event, it was not played as a competition with winners and losers. The aim was to improve the skills, team work and the knowledge and understanding of the game for the children to compete and have fun....which they did do!


Well done to all.

School Archery Visit

School Archery Visit Monday 23rd & Tuesday 24th March, 2018.


Prior to the Easter break we were visited at School by an Outside Provider who specialised in Archery. 


This is a sport which many children have seen on TV at the Olympic Games, but very few, if any, have participated in.


Our visitor talked about the bow (which is very light) and the arrows and how both are different weights and lengths according to age and ability and all children had the opportunity to have a go.


Despite some poor weather at times, all the children were introduced to a new sport, learned a great deal and had a lot of fun.

Year 4 Football Competition at The Liverpool F.C. Academy Monday 19th March, 2018


On Monday 19th March some Year 4 boys attended at Liverpool F.C.'s Academy to take part in an Inter School 7-a-side Football competition. For some of the children, this was the first time they had played in a team situation and the first time they had played in a competitive environment.


Placed in Group 1, the boys played five matches in total and unfortunately failed to win any. However, there were some very strong performances, especially from Mohamed.


This was an incredible experience for the children, and although it would have been nice to score some goals and win some matches, the children will never forget playing at one of the best football arenas in the country.


Well done all.

Year 5 and Year 3 Kinball Taster Session Friday 9th March, 2018

Kinball Taster Session, Friday 9th March, 2018


On Friday, Year 5 and Year 3 were visited by an Outside provider who taught the children all about a new, slightly unusual game called Kinball.


Kinball is a game played by three teams where the aim of the game is to keep the over-sized ball off the ground.


After several ball familiarity drills, the children took part in some actual Kinball games and a great deal of fun and enjoyment was had by all.



Year 6 Football at The Liverpool F.C. Academy Monday 5th March, 2018.

Year 6 Football at The Liverpool F.C. Academy, Monday 5th March, 2018.


On Monday 5th March, some Year 6 children from School attended at The Liverpool F.C. Academy to take part in an Inter School 7-a-side Football Competition.


Placed In a group with five other Schools, Phoenix Primary won one game and lost four. However, this was still a very good performance from the team who have not had a lot of Football this year. There were very good performances from Abass and Emma in particular.


Results aside, this was still a great experience for our children playing, on superb 4G pitches at The Liverpool F.C. Academy, a venue where Liverpool F.C. are aiming to produce young players who will graduate to their Reserve and 1st Teams.


Well done all.



Year 5 & 6 Inter School Table tennis Competition Thursday 1st March 2018

Year 5 & 6 Table Tennis Competition Thursday 1st March, 2018 @ Calderstones School.


On Thursday 1st March, some Year 5 and 6 children from School, attended at an Inter School Table Tennis competition. The children who participated were those who had been attending an after School Table Tennis Club run by Mr Finlay on a Tuesday night.


After only three weeks of practice and playing, the children came up against some very strong players from other Schools. However, each child won at least one match, which was very pleasing.


Unfortunately, we did not manage to progress through from the Group Stages, but it was a very worthwhile learning experience for the children and a lot of fun and enjoyment was had by all.


Well done.

Year 5&6 Basketball Competition Wednesday 10th January 2018

On Wednesday 10th January, 2018, a team of 8 children from Phoenix Primary School attended at St Margaret's Academy, Liverpool, to take part in a Basketball competition, the winners of which would progress to the City Finals.


Phoenix Primary were in Pool 1 and played 4 matches against other local Schools. After those matches we returned figures of Played 4, Won 3 and Drawn 1. This meant the children qualified for the semi-finals as Pool Winners.


In the semi -finals we played Childwall C of E Primary School B team, the runners up in Pool 2. After a very close game, with chances at either basket, the semi-final finished 0-0, which meant a sudden death set shot shoot out - 3 players from each team shooting off individually against each other. 


After both Schools had had their 3 shots, the scores were tied at 2-2. Each School then nominated a 4th and 5th player to shoot off against each other. After 5 shots each, the scores were tied at 3-3, which meant it went to sudden death (first to score) with the original No.1 sudden death players again shooting off against each other. Unfortunately, the Phoenix attempt looped out and the Childwall attempt was successful, which meant Childwall progressed to the Final.


Although the children were very disappointed at losing in the semi-finals, they performed brilliantly. The were unbeaten throughout the entire competition and only lost by the narrowest of margins. Many positives can be taken from the competition and everyone should be very proud of how they performed.

Year 3/4 Girls Football , Wednesday 13th December, 2017.


On Wednesday 13th December some Year 3 & 4 girls attended at the Toxteth Firefit Hub to take part in an Inter School 6-a-side indoor football competition. For most children, this was the first time they had competed for the school in a sports competition.

After some very close matches, with only the odd goal in it, Phoenix Primary School unfortunately failed to progress from the Group Stages. However, a great afternoon was had by all who took part and some valuable experience has been gained for future competitions.

Well done to all those who took part.
