Gymnastics success for Year 2 children!

Friday, 26 February 2016

On Tuesday, 8 boys and girls from 2B went to Trinity Secondary School in Leamington Spa to compete with other schools from Kenilworth and Leamington.

They had to take part in three different activities, the whole time being judged and scored by a team of expert gymnasts! Firstly, they had to learn and perform a routine to show to an audience. After that they had to, individually complete the vault. The judges were looking for control, pointed toes and a perfect jump with bent knees and a super smart gymnastics finish. The final judged section was the floor routine that all of year two have worked hard to rehearse. There was a lot to remember but the children did a fantastic job, remembering every jump, turn, roll and movement!

The children bounced happily (can you tell we have also been learning to use adverbs?) out of the school and onto our private mini-bus because they all had shining silver medals around their necks for coming second place!

Well done Year 2!





Children teach the teachers

Monday, 22 June 2015

Learning was turned upside down this morning when all of the year 5 children taught the teachers how to do some Activate exercises!

When the teacher’s entered the classroom, all of year 5 were ready to go. They have been taking part in Activate exercises twice a day for the last 3 weeks, now it was their moment to teach the teachers! The teachers were so impressed with the children’s professionalism and ability to perform the moves so well…I think the teacher’s have now got some practicing to do themselves.

The feedback from the children about the daily exercises was amazing. All children enthused about how it helps them get ready for their learning and are more focussed. All of the teachers are excited to take their new learning to their own classes and start doing the daily exercises with their own class!

Year 5 had an orienteering day!

Tuesday, 16 December 2014

Year 5 had a visit from premier sports so we could learn how to do Orienteering as our topic was Explorers. We had to learn about all the marks so we could find them on the map.  We ran around the play ground in groups to find the marked stickers. We all had a great day learning about orienteering.
