Due to the recent cold and wet conditions outside, Yr 5 and 6 have been enjoying some competitive (in house) games. These have included Benchball, Dodgeball and Crab Football. We have been encouraging the children to display the Spirit of the Games values, which are respect, honesty, teamwork, self belief, passion and determination. We have seen all of these values on display and also big smiles on the faces of the children as they have really enjoyed taking part in the competitions.
Well done Yr 5 and 6!!!

Our Year 5 Sports Leaders in Action…
On Friday our Sports Leaders used the first half of the training session to prepare and practice for teaching Year 5. They spoke about the importance of giving clear instructions and what could go wrong it they do not!! They also had to consider how they would make people feel happy and good about themselves when making groups. Finally they thought about how to position themselves to have the best view of all pupils they are running a session for.
The three Sports Leaders groups worked really well and delivered fun activities. After their activities they had a debrief to think about what they did well and how they could improve next time.
We look forward to the Sports Leaders putting their new skills into practice at break, lunch times and at After School Clubs.
Have a look at our fabulous gymnasts from Year 6. The theme for this lesson was balance.
I'm sure you will agree that we have some budding gymnasts in our midst! Click on a picture to start a slideshow. I hope you enjoy them!
Our Year 5 Sports Leaders took part in their first training session today in order to prepare them for their role within our school. Kiki, Emilia, Benas, Patryk, Harvey, Rihanna, Alicia, Kian and Sanjita spent the morning learning about the key qualities they need to be a good sports leader. They took part in a fun relay which focussed on The Spirit of the Games Values and then went on to discuss additional leadership qualities (SOCCER). Once they had finished the theory session, they got active by learning about the importance of a warm up and what one consists of. They then went onto designing a passing drill, remembering the key areas of safety, organisation, cooperation, communication, making it enjoyable and responsibly. They will continue their training next week and then put their training into practice by leading small groups of year 2 pupils in fun, sporty activities.
