Today, Year 4 have started their cricket lessons provided by Staffordshire Cricket. The children have learned the correct techniques for catching and they have also practised throwing more accurately. Well done children. Keep practising at home!
What a fabulous end to our wonderful sports week! Year 1 had an amazing time at Muay Thai Boxing this morning followed by an energetic Zumba class which included dancing to the YMCA!
This was followed by watching some incredible skipping and then learning croquet skills on the field. Children should sleep really well tonight!
Year 3 have had a great week learning and trying new sporting activities. Here are some photos of our favourite parts of the week!
Yesterday the children had lots of fun learning all about how to play rugby, practicing multi skills with Cool Cats and getting their hearts pumping when completing circuit exercises.
Today the children in Year Two have had a lovely day and they have all tried their very best with lots of different sports. This morning the children were practicing their striking, bowling and catching skills. Then this afternoon the children have been raising their heart rates with some scooter skills. The children were incredible on the scooters and they all really enjoyed racing their friends.
Yesterday, we particularly enjoyed showing off our scooting skills and our quick-paced cricket session where we did some ‘rocket fuelled batting’. It was lots of fun. We also found out all about the different jobs people have who work at the Bet 365 Stadium – home of our favourite team… Stoke City. Table tennis in our classroom was the other activity – it was quite tricky but lots of fun!
On Monday, the children met two athletes and were able to take part in some circuit training and races. Everyone tried their very best and I was really impressed with how the children persevered even when they were tired! On Monday afternoon, the children also participated in a game called Boccia with ASM sports. The children all worked hard to improve their accuracy when throwing a ball and when rolling a ball at a target. Well done Children!
Today Year Two had lots of fun on their trampoline enjoying a Boogie and Bounce session. The children had great big smiles throughout and they all worked really hard. We couldn’t be prouder of the children for their efforts with all of the sports this week! You can see how fast everyone was jumping as it was so hard to get a photo of the children when they were still!
After an inspiration assembly from our visiting GB athletes (Feron Sayers and Ryan Raghu), we took part in circuit training. This was followed by an extra special PE lesson delivered by our special guests in which the children were yet again wowed and impressed. After lunch, we got to grips with defending and attacking using ‘foils’ in a fencing lesson… definitely some budding musketeers! For the last session, the children thoroughly enjoyed watching the impressive tricks performed by Danny Butler with his ‘Extreme Mountain Bike Show’! A thrilling end to the day. We can’t wait to se what tomorrow brings!
What a fun day we had today! Year One had so much fun this morning on the inflatable slide, pirate ship, playing cactus hoopla and playing so many more fun activities! Thank you children for being such super stars and making it a fun day for us all!
