At Trinity, we deliver the National Curriculum by following the Real PE Scheme of Work. Children have two timetabled PE sessions a week, one of which is taken by a sports coach from Future Stars who teach the children team games. This gives the children the chance to apply and use the skills they have learnt during their REAL PE session to a range of team games.
In addition, the children keep fit by running around our race track twice a week for 5 minutes - aiming to complete a mile a week (10 laps = 1 mile). The children are encouraged to beat their personal best each week in order to build upon their running stamina.

Competitive sporting events and wider range of activities
At Trinity, we aim for every child to take part in a sporting event or wider activity during their time. Trinity attend a range of sporting events, some of these being competitive and some being inclusive, where the children have the chance to learn a new skill or have a go at something they are not very confident with. We attend events at Gordano where we compete against other local schools and also North Somerset events where we compete with different schools in North Somerset.
Sport reports and photos of the events that we attend will be added below.
Term 1 Sports Events
Y4 Multi Sports Festival (inclusive)
Twelve year 4 children took part in a multi-skills festival at Hutton Moor, where they learnt some new skills and games. During the afternoon, the children took part in two workshops. The children were given the opportunity to try plastic sword fencing, laser shooting and Pentactive activity on rotation. They also took part in a multi skills cricket festival, run by the Somerset Cricket Board. The children really enjoyed learning the new activities and showed eagerness and determination as they approached each activity.
KS2 Cross Country
The children have been practising their running skills during Future Stars PE over the last few weeks. Forty children across KS2 were selected to go to Gordano to compete against the other Portishead schools. The children showed courage, determination and perseverance during the afternoon. Years 4-6 then went to compete against other North Somerset schools at Bristol Grammar School sports fields and worked hard to beat their personal best. Well done to all the runners!
Trinity took a girls' and boys' football team to Gordano to compete in a tournament of matches against other Portishead schools. Both teams showed great teamwork as they passed each other the ball and showed respect to the other teams. The boys' team showed determination and resilience as they played their games. The girls' team worked together extremely well and won all their games meaning they earned the right to qualify to the next round. The girls' team will be playing next term at the BGS sports ground against other qualifying North Somerset schools. Well done to both teams!
Term 2 Sports Events
Y5/6 Tag Rugby Festival
The children that attend Tag rugby club after school took part in a tag rugby festival at Gordano school. They played against lots of other Portishead schools and showed off what they have learnt by winning all of their games. Well done to them!
Y5/6 Girls Football Final
On Friday nine year 5 and 6s attended the North Somerset Primary Girls' Football Finals at Bristol Grammar School. We were in a group with All Saints and Worle Village. In our first match we drew nil-nil with Worle Village who went on to beat All Saints 1-0, this meant that we needed to beat All Saints by 2 goals to top the group…..and thanks to 2 goals from Immy we won 2-0 and topped the group! We then went into another pool with the original group winners. In our first game we beat a very strong Mary Elton team 1-0 with Martha scoring a last-minute winner. In the second game we convincingly beat St Josephs 2-0 with Martha again bagging both goals. This means we progress to the Somerset Finals in January. Well done girls – what a brilliant achievement and great teamwork! The standard was very high but the girls didn’t let it phase them and represented Trinity brilliantly.
Term 3 Sports events
Y4/5 Kurling and Speed stacking.
A group of Year 4 and 5 children attended a Kurling and speed stacking sporting event at Gordano. They said “Kurling is such an exciting sport. You have to be precise and calm to get it as close to the middle as possible. It is a lot of fun and we got really competitive. On the other side of the hall we practiced cup stacking, which is harder than it sounds. At the start we had three cups and using both your hands you needed to stack them as fast as possible to a pyramid. Then you stacked them back up. We timed ourselves doing 9 cups, which was really exciting. The fastest one did it in under 5 seconds!!” Overall, it was a brilliant day and the children learnt lots of new skills – Well done to them!
Y5/6 Girls County Football finals.
Our Y5/6 girls football team went to Weston College to compete in the County finals against other football teams from across Somerset. They played in a pool against 5 other teams and there were some very close matches. They won their first match and lost their next two but went out with determination and won their last two games. They went through to the semi final on points and goal difference - it was a very close tournament! The semi final was played in very wet, cold conditions, they were the first to score but the match ended in a draw 1-1 and went to penalties! Trinity's goalkeeper saved all the penalties so they went through to the final against Yeovil. The girls showed great resilience after a long day and in cold, wet conditions but played their best game and won the final 3-1.The girls will now go on to play in the next tournament against the winners of Devon & Cornwall later this term. The girls showed brilliant teamwork, rowing together and perseverance throughout the day. They were resilient when they didn't win and kept on going and it paid off. They had courage to keep going and remained hopeful throughout the day. Well done girls - what a brilliant achievement and we are very proud of you all!
Year 2 Cricket Festival
Eight Year 2 children went to St Katherines to take part in a Cricket festival. The children went around the hall and took part in all the activities showing courage and resilience as they tried new skills. Thy practised throwing and catching, aiming for a target which was the cricket stumps, practised their over arm throw and used a bat to hit the ball. All the children were determined and willing to take part in all the activities. The St Katherine’s students were particularly impressed by Trinity’s accurate catching. The eight children then came back to school and showed brilliant leadership skills as they helped set up, deliver and teach the rest of the Year 2 children the activities. Well done to them!
