At Purbrook Junior School, we recognise the vital importance of staying fit and healthy, even when we are away from the classroom and school grounds.
Each week at school you have two PE sessions. It is important to continue to remain active and healthy away from these sessions. There are many different activities that you can do from walking, jogging, yoga, obstacle courses, dancing or undertaking your favourite hobbies through clubs and groups (when permitted). These are to name but a few.
Mr Kennett, Mr Baines and Mrs Kennett (Sport4Primary) create exciting whole school PE activities through their YouTube channel. One of many fantastic ways to keep active! These can be found below. You can also visit their YouTube channel by clicking here.
If you would like to send any photos or videos of you keeping fit and active to Mrs Kennett, you may do so by clicking here.
Have fun and keep active!

Today, Purbrook celebrated Earth Day. Earth Day was first held on April 22nd, 1970 and has been used to demonstrate support for environmental protection and to raise awareness around climate change ever since. Since September 2020, Purbrook has started its journey to becoming an Eco-School and since then we have become even more committed to raising the children’s awareness of the world around them including how we can all play our part in reducing our carbon footprint and supporting the world’s approach to a more sustainable future. The children have learnt a great deal about their own carbon footprint today and what approaches they can take to reduce it. The children have focused on their goals, created acrostic poems and promoted important messages through art work #earthday #environment #gopurbrook ... See MoreSee Less

Welcome back Purbrook! What a fantastic first day back – you have all worked incredibly hard! As Mr Williams discussed during assembly today, Mr Gibbs and Mrs Ginn worked incredibly hard over the Easter holidays tidying, improving and enhancing our school grounds. A new ‘WOODY WALK’ trail has been created with bug hotels and bird boxes for you to enjoy. In addition to this, the ‘Cabin and Woodland Area’ has been enhanced with new plants and woodchip. Finally, the poles that border the playground have been painted the house colours – we think it really brightens up the school grounds! A further litter pick was also carried out so as to ensure our grounds are clean, bright and refreshing for all to appreciate. At Purbrook, now more than ever, we understand the importance of being outside, appreciating nature and taking in the fresh air - it improves our #mentalhealth and #wellbeing and makes us feel good. An exciting start to the summer term! #gopurbrook ... See MoreSee Less

A big thank you to all the children that kept in touch during lockdown, completing my challenges and sending in many images. These children (and 3 from Yr3) took part consistently throughout lockdown and have received a prize. Thank you to Tesco who donated the prizes. #gopurbrook #tescocommunitychampion ...

Mr Gibbs has spent part of his evening starting his Anti-Litter campaign! An hour and a half later and he has managed to collect a large bin bag full of plastic and general rubbish from the school grounds. Linking to our Climate Change week that we thoroughly enjoyed doing after returning from Lockdown 3, we have all recognised and understood the importance of reducing our plastic usage, putting our litter in the bin and picking up any rubbish that we may find on the floor. We all have a role to play - we can make a difference Purbrook! #gopurbrook #climatechange #pickupyourlitter ... See MoreSee Less
Today is a year since the first National Lockdown so Purbrook Junior took the time to reflect on the past year. We thought about how covid has affected us individually, as a community and across the world. Join us at 8pm for a beacon of light to think about all those who have been affected directly and indirectly by Covid-19 #nationaldayofreflection #beaconoflight #covid19 ... See MoreSee Less
Year 4 created robo-bugs for British Science week, they chose to be a search and rescue bug, an exploration bug or a construction bug and they were created by using different parts of different insects to create the perfect bug for the job! Today, we made them using plasticine and labelled why we chose each part #britishscienceweek #robobug #gopurbrook 🐞🐛🦟🕷🪲🐜 ... See MoreSee Less
On our return to school, Purbrook Junior School has focused their attention on the different aspects of Climate Change and celebrated Science Week. Today, we were extremely lucky to have a whole school zoom about climate change and why the Arctic is so important for it. The zoom was led by Professor Terry V Callaghan, an arctic plant ecologist who has worked in every arctic country and has been in the field for over 50 years. During that time, he has seen significant changes in the Arctic ice cap decline and has contributed to major arctic and global organisations and environmental assessments including IPCC. He has also been recognised with a Nobel Peace Prize for his services to mankind. We were hugely privileged to be able to ask questions and glean vital knowledge that will allow our community to raise awareness and make a difference. Nobody is too small to make a difference. #gopurbrook #dreambig ... See MoreSee Less
