Pupils have two hours of PE timetabled per week through which we develop core skills to enable children to become well rounded sportsmen and women as set out in the new National Curriculum. Children are given the opportunity to swim during KS2 and we aim for all pupils leaving the school to be able to swim at least 25m. All pupils also have the opportunity to complete the National Cycling Proficiency scheme in KS2.
All pupils take part in a range of tournaments and sports festivals both within school (Intra-competitions) between year groups and with other schools (Inter-competitions). Find out more about our Intra and Inter competitions below.

What a fantastic day! Boys and girls in Classes 6, 7 and 8 had the opportunity to take part in running activities, mini - tennis and football in an inter-school competition, held on the school playing fields. Everyone represented the school with great pride and thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon. Thank you to Mrs Adair for putting on refreshments for everyone and to Coxhoe United for letting use their goalposts. The event has a huge success and we hope to return to Thornhill for a fixture soon.
All Stars Cricket
All Stars Cricket led by Durham County Cricket Club visited Coxhoe Primary. Astro helped children in Classes 3, 4 and 5 try different Cricket skills in a taster session. The children had lots of opportunity to take part and experience the game of Cricket. If your child is interested in the sport, then sign-up with All Stars Cricket which is taking place this summer at lots of local cricket clubs including, Sedgefield, Tudhoe, Mainsforth and Durham City.
Children from Year 3 and 4 got the chance to take part in a range of gymnastic activities. Children practised vaulting, tumbling and acrobatics at Newton Aycliffe Leisure Centre - led by Athena. They gave 100% in everything they did and demonstrated a huge range of skills. It was great to see the children's fearless approach and 'have a go' attitude.
Coxhoe Crowned League Champions
The A team added to their success in the cup by defending their league title - the third time in four seasons! After a hard-fought draw in their first game they won the next six matches in a row to lift the shield on a stormy evening. The team showed excellent team spirit throughout and thoroughly deserved their success. Same again next year!

When I arrived in the hall I was tingling of excitement. Excitedly I skipped to my space and gazed around the cramped room. Suddenly, the first class...it wasn’t us. We watched the other performers sparkle. Next I thought it was class 11 but it was us. I was excited. I jumped up and walked gracefully to my space. We were all waiting for the sports crew to start the music…
Yesterday when I came into the hall I noticed that the hall seemed bigger. I was excited when I arrived in the big hall. Just then, I was full of excitement. Next, I skipped in the hall. When I sat down I heard people talking and chattering. I could see blue mats, children and teachers. I skipped and… I slipped on something and nearly tripped over onto Leah’s back. It was Class 6’s turn to show theirs. They were dancing to ‘Do you want to build a snow man?’. It was cool. Magically after that it was our turn…
Just then we walked into the hall nervously but happily. Everyone was having a chat to each other. Moments later the first class was announced!.... but it was Class 6. After, we waited anxiously for the next class to perform then they announced it was Class 9! Then it was Class 10`s turn. All of the performances had being brilliant. Then without warning, it was our turn! We speedily went into our spaces…
