This week year 6 worked alongside Pete to develop their team building skills. The tasks were challenging but the children communicated well whilst motivating and supporting one another.
Congratulations to our year 5 and 6 football team who have qualified for the borough finals! The children played a total of 7 games and won every match. Well done!
The new Sports Council for 2018-2019 were elected today! They met with Pete this afternoon and discussed the following:
1. The role of a Sports Council representative
2. Their thoughts on the new playground equipment
3. Extra curricular activities
4. Girls active
Representatives have now been asked to discuss points 2,3 and 4 with their classes and report back at the next meeting in December.
Year five had a challenging afternoon with Coach Pete today. The aim of the session was to build self esteem and develop team building skills. The children had a variety of challenges to complete as a team. Each team had to get from one side of the hall to the other using only 2 mats. Another challenge was to move around the hall using 3 hoops. The children could only be stood inside 2 hoops at any one time. The winning team was the group that had collected the most amount of beanbags whilst travelling around the hall. The challenges were difficult but both the classes had lots of fun.
This week it was time for year four to develop their confidence and team building skills through the use of the outdoor equipment. The aim was for the children to travel from one side to the other without touching the ground, with the added challenge of passing a ball within their group. The children found it challenging but worked together to complete the task.
Today year three had a brilliant time in the conservation area developing team building skills through problem solving. The children explored alternative ways to travel from one side of the equipment to another without touching the ground.
Today Pete trained the year 5 children on the new playground equipment. 5A will be leading the KS2 playground in a variety of new games at lunch time whilst 5B will be leading games in the KS1 playground. The playground leaders are very excited to start their new roles next week.
10 children from year three competed in the biggest tennis festival in South England yesterday with 480 children attending the event. They played in pairs, competing against 4 other schools in a total of 19 rounds. They had a fantastic day and we are very proud of their success.
On Tuesday 12th June year 2 took part in a Mini Olympics competition between the school's four houses. They participated in 6 different events including hurdles, obstacle races and relay races. Everybody had a great time competing against one another. The final results were very close with Gabriel in first position (20 points) and Rafael coming in second place with 19 points. Well done year 2!
This week 8 children from year 5 and 6 entered the Quad Kids borough finals after winning first place in their previous competition. They all tried their best in every event and although the competition was challenging they did not give up. Well done!
