We got to the Yeovil Athletics Final!!!!

 As we qualified from mendip, a team of 20 pupils and Mrs Atkins, accompanied by a IG sports coach set off for the Yeovil Sports final on June 30th!  The whole team did amazingly well, and the experience the children gained from being part of a huge sporting event, and using a proper athletics track was fantastic!

A great time and a great result as Mells came 6th in the County!  Well done to everyone involved!


Virtual School Games Pentathlon News - January 2021


Mells Year 3 and 4 children entered a virtual School games Pentathlon before Christmas. It is the ideal Personal Best Challenge and a national virtual competition to connect young people across the Country in a common goal.


The School Games Pentathlon is designed to:

Support the teaching of key athletic skills

Encourage reward and celebrate success and individual progress

Engage whole classes, year groups and schools

Monitor and encourage improvement in fitness levels

Enable intra-school, inter-school and virtual competition


The children participated in:

Standing Long Jump (two-footed jump from a standing position - a test of co-ordination and leg strength)

Speed bounce (an exciting test of speed, rhythm and coordination)

Chest push (standing throw pushing a 1kg ball from the chest)

10 x 10m shuttle run (develops the ability to accelerate, decelerate and change direction)

Vertical jump (jump from a standing position in which the participant competes against their own height and weight)


We are delighted to confirm that Mells have topped their area of Mendip and therefore have qualified for the finals on June 18th (if they can go ahead by then).

RHS Gardening - Be active


Post lock down, it is our intention to rejuvenate an overgrown are using the 5 areas of well being.  With sensory areas which will have movement, smells and sound; the children will take ownership of the garden - 'giving back' produce to the school community, they will 'keep learning' about sustainability within our garden design, 'connect' by giving out flowers to those who have helped us, 'take notice' of others needing help and 'be active' to promote mindfulness and be physically active.


We have currently gained the RHS Level 1 award.

Virtual Rickshaw Challenge


As part of Children in Need and helping our children be active, we are taking part in the Virtual Rickshaw challenge.  We are asking our children to walk, cycle or scoot to school and log the mileage to take us towards our virtual target of 423 miles! 


Friday 12th July the whole school took part in the Run for Why mile challenge. We all had a go at running a mile around the field.

Change for life

The Change4Life club targets those who do not actively play at break/lunch, or those who do not fully participate in PE or those who do not have access to activity outside of school.

The club improves healthy lifestyles and impacts on whole school outcomes. An increase in physical activity leads to an increase in physical health and sense of wellbeing, which leads to an increase in attainment and achievement and narrowing the attainment gap

Sport Leaders Programme

KS2 children will all be given an opportunity to ‘learn to lead’ as part of our Sports Leaders Programm. This will involve working with the younger children during PE sessions.
