- help children to be more skilful in the ways they control their movements and develop co-ordination.
- develop positive attitudes to health, hygiene and fitness
- teach children how the body responds to activity
- contribute to children’s social and emotional development
- promote children’s confidence and self-esteem
- embed qualities such as commitment, fairness, tolerance and concern for others
- help children cope with losing and develop a sense of sportsmanship

Sandown Cross Country - 22.03.17
The annual Sandown Cross Country tournament was held on Wednesday 22nd March with 7 schools attending from the area. A host of other schools were invited and accepted, however, the constantly changing weather, understandably, meant the tournament was reduced from its expected 10 plus schools.
Sandown once again had a huge representation across the four races and during the trial runs that were held previously, at least 70% of Key Stage 2 wanted to get their names on a starting place. Those that were picked represented the school with great pride and to quote Mr Lindsay, 'They showed grit and determination and didn't stop'. Although we had a few finishing in the top 3, we were constantly placing our three runners in the top 15, which meant our overall score was standing us in good shape.
At the awards ceremony, the tension could be felt in the air! The top two out of seven were Sandown and Sacred Heart. 2 points separated both and the winners were ........................... Sacred Heart! A well done to Sacred Heart but, again, this is the best performance by a Sandown school in years! A fantastic achievement!
