Year 2 have enjoyed competing in lots of different racing events this afternoon. They all supported and congratulated each other and cheered on children from other year groups. All children were proud to take part and tried their very best.
Year 4 have spent their day learning to be play leaders! We learnt what was needed to run a structured game using ‘STEP’ and ‘SOCCER’. They designed their own games and then set them up outside for their friends to do.
Today, year 4 took part in a skipping workshop run by Skip2Bfit. David taught them how to properly hold the skipping rope, correctly position their arms and how to record their jumps. They had a first try, checked their personal best and then worked even harder to try and beat it. Even the teachers had a go! There were some keen skippers in Year 4 and they are very excited to keep beating their personal best.
Last week, Year 4 enjoyed a trip to the Reach Free school. They learnt how to play handball out on the astro and how to perform a complicated mix of jumps, turns and landings on the trampoline. Year 4 were brilliant at having a go at these new skills even when they felt a little nervous.
As part of National Sports Week, Year 3 were invited to our local secondary school, The Reach Free. They were able to experience the wonderful facilities and had the opportunity to learn two new sports, handball and trampolining. All children were ready and motivated to take full advantage of this experience and were so excited to come away with some new skills! We would like to thank the team at The Reach Free for welcoming us and sharing their expertise. We look forward to returning next week for athletics!
