Rugby Tots

This term we are having a rugby coach come in and teach us all about Rugby in year 1.

Last week was our first session and we had lots of fun playing different games!

Tri-Golf

Littlestone Golf Club came along and provided us with a golf taster session. There were lots of different stations where we got to play a range of golfing games using different golf clubs.

Boogie Bounce

Last week, years 4, 5 and 6 all got the opportunity to have a taster in boogie bounce. It looked like everyone had lots of fun, even the teachers who decided to take part as well! We were very lucky to have them come into our school and teach us different moves.

 

Sports hall Athletics

Last term Year 4 and 5 took part in a sports hall Athletics competition at the Marsh Academy. Both year groups did fantastically well and a team from each year group won their heats. They all showed great sportsmanship and tried their best in every event! Well done to everyone who took part.

Gymnastics

At the start of term, Year 1 were lucky to have a Gymnastics coach come in and teach them some basic Gymnastics skills. The children learnt: how to walk and stand like a Gymnast, a range of balances and had a go at completing a forward roll. All the children enjoyed the session and are keen to continue learning Gymnastics in PE this term.

Speed Stacking

Last term, Fox Class went over to The Marsh Academy and took part in a speed stacking event.

The children learnt how to speed stack and then competed against children from local schools.

All the children had great fun and learnt some great new skills as well!

Multi-Skills Event

Just before the holidays, year 1 went over to The Marsh Academy to participate in a Multi-Sports event.

They had to complete a range of activities, testing their: jumping, running, throwing, kicking and hitting skills.

All the children had lots of fun and even got to meet the Shepway Sports Mascot!

Overall there were 12 teams competing and we were lucky enough to have a team come 3rd and 1st. Congratulations to all the children who took part!

Sports Crew Training

Earlier this term some children from year 5 and 6 went over to the Marsh Academy to train as Sports Crew members. The children looked at how to put on mini competitions during lunch times whilst developing children’s sporting skills. All the children had to plan an activity as a small group and then demonstrate and explain it to children from another school, before getting them to complete the activity and scoring them to find a winner! They discussed ways they could make the activity more challenging and less challenging for different ages and abilities.

The children are now keen to implement their new skills and will be supporting children on both KS1 and KS2 playgrounds at lunchtimes in the near future.

Keep an eye for photos of them leading these activities.
