Sport in Our School - SummerTerm

KS1
Football at Lunch Times
 
Recently, the weather has been fantastic and children -from both key stages- have benefited from being able to play football on the field. The children organise their own teams and are showing good sportsmanship. Please remember water bottles will be essential as the weather continues to be good.
Minibeast Dancing!
 
Class 1 have started dance sessions with Miss Simcock. Their dances are taking a minibeast theme and this week's focus has been on the buzzing bee! Children have been learning simple moves; they have developed these moves to include travelling at different levels.
KS2
During the Summer Term, Class 5 have been lucky enough to receive weekly rugby training from Warrington Wolves Foundation. Jack (the coach) leads the skills based sessions every Friday afternoon. Class 5 begin a typical session with a boot camp style warm up. This is then followed by a series of games, to help develop their passing, attacking and defensive skills. Recently, Class 5 have been practising their kicking skills during a game of kick tennis, which they loved.
 
"Rugby is fun and exciting and we learn something new each week." Reece
"Jack always makes his sessions different from the last one." Francesca
"Jack teaches us the skills we need to know but we can have fun as he has a great sense of humour." Lucas
"Jack is very enthusiastic and encouraging especially if we don't understand how to do something." Anna-Leigh
 
Manchester United Foundation
 
During the Summer term, Class 5 are fortunate enough to receive weekly ball skills training> The sessions are led by Jordan from the Man Utd Foundation. The Class have been allocated a peer mentor (picked by Jordan) who helps to set up sessions and will help any other students who require assistance with skills.
The class have started learning basic skills to improve their football like small games linked to improving foot work, such as running through ladders; practising kicking the ball and keeping it u using the toe, knee, chest and head; and playing a series of warm up games like: Old Trafford's on Fire and head catch.
The children are thoroughly enjoying these sessions as is Jordan who this week said: "I really look forward to my Tuesday afternoon session with this class."
