At Lowther we love Sport and PE. We have lots of sporting activities available to keep us fit and healthy. Here's a snapshot of some of our recent sporting events...
  Basketball Champions
We recently took two excellent squads to the Knights tournament and won the Champions Trophy! We have so many children playing basketball at Lowther at such a good level. The whole squad performed brilliantly.

  Y3 & 4 Locality Sports Event
A huge well done to the 16 children from Y3 and Y4 who represented the school in the annual Locality Sports Day this week. The 10 local schools get together to give the children the chance to compete against each other in athletics. We performed really well against some tough competition, coming a very impressive 2nd overall, winning numerous races. Well done children! The pictures below hopefully show you just how well they did!

  Athletics Success


Team Lowther smashes the local athletics tournament with an incredible win!    


More success! We've also won the fastest overall team shield at the borough sports (featuring all 40 Richmond primaries) WOW!
  Cross Country Success


Mr Pritchard took a team of Y5/6 runners to the borough cross country tournament. The daily mile is definitely paying off as the girls came equal 2nd and the boys team came 3rd. Super work runners!
The top 6 children from each teams placing is added up to decide on the teams overall position. The results speak for themselves. Brilliant!
  Football Success

Well done to the combined Y4 and Y6 football team that won the recent local schools tournament at St Paul's recently. After beating local schools in the group stages they went on to beat Colet Court 1-0 in the finals.

Mr Green also took the combined Y5 and Y6 team to the borough wide tournament, making it as far as the quarters only to lose dramatically on penalties. They finished the tournament with an impressive record of 4 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss (only conceding 1 goal in total). Really super stuff!
  The Daily Mile


The Daily Mile link    
The Daily Mile is up and running at Lowther!

Each day the children from Reception to Year 6 run 1 mile around the playground. Some children walk, some jog and some run. Have a look at the website if you would like to know more about how this will benefit your child.

Some of the core principles of The Daily mile:

FUN! The children have the freedom to run in the fresh air with their friends. They should know it's not a competition - many will mix running and walking.

WEATHER! We treat the weather as a benefit not a barrier - children respond to the seasons. Jackets on in the cold and damp: ditch the sweatshirts if it's warm.

TRACK! We have a track mapped out, which if the children complete 6 times they will have completed one mile.

QUICK! It all takes place in 15 minutes - from leaving the classroom to returning.

RISK! We have completed a full risk assessment.

JUST GO! There's no need to warm up - straight outside and off they go.

CLOTHES! No kit is required. The children go out in their school clothes.

OWN IT! They can choose to run, walk or jog - or mix all three. We encourage the children to do some running.
