At Dixons Broadgreen we are currently working on our exciting new production of Bugsy Malone which will be showcased on the evenings of 28th and 29th of June in our main school hall. This musical show is set in 1920's America and tells the story of two arch enemies, Fat Sam and Dandy Dan. The show is a good old fashioned slapstick comedy, with splurge guns and custard pies being the weapon of choice. The comical gang warfare of course ends with a happy conclusion in the finale song.
Our talented cast are working hard every
Monday and Wednesday in after school rehearsals. The art department and the technology department are busy designing and
creating the set design and props while the performing arts team focus on the
choreography, direction, vocal tuition and band rehearsals. Save the date in
your diaries, this show is perfect for the whole family to enjoy!
“The PE department endeavours to instil a love for lifelong participation of physical activity for all students.“
At Dixons Broadgreen Academy the PE department aims to use the 3 pillars of progression to meet the breadth and ambition of the National Curriculum.
- Motor competence – knowledge and range of movements that become increasingly sport and physical active specific.
- Rules, strategies and tactics – knowledge of the conventions of participation in different sports and physical activities.
- Healthy participation – knowledge of safe and effective participation.
We aim for students to:
• have developed a secure foundation of fundamental movement skills which allow students to develop and apply their motor competence to a wide range of sports.
• have developed knowledge in a wide range of sports including rules, strategies and tactical decision-making skills that can be applied successfully into either competitive situations or situations that apply pressure to students' decision making.
• know the physical, mental and social benefits of healthy lifelong participation in physical activity and have considered the negative impacts of following a sedentary lifestyle.
The curriculum is supported by a healthy offer of city-wide competitions in a wide variety of sports and a variety of after school clubs.
March sports competitions:
Any friendly fixtures will be communicated through team managers in PE lessons and after school clubs.
Reminder: Table Tennis club is on for all year groups on Wednesday after school. Badminton club is on for all year groups on Mondays after school.
