Sports Day 2018

We had a fabulous time at Sports Day. We were able to go up on the field for the first time and it is another wonderful space we get to enjoy at our school. We joined up with Key Stage One and our families were invited to join in the fun.

After we’d had a turn we let our grown ups have a go at racing. There was a Mummies, Nannans and other girls race then a Daddies, Grandads and other boys race. The teachers had a turn as well! We were very proud when Miss Deakin was the winner 🙂

Once all the races and activities were finished  we found out which team was the winners with the most points. Each team had children from ever class so these are the winners from Onyx Class. Everyone else got a certificate to say well done for taking part.

Father’s Day Fun

It was one of our favourite days on Friday when we invited all our dads, granddads, uncles and other male relatives to school for the afternoon. We joined with the rest of Foundation Stage and Key Stage One so we also got to play with our brothers and sisters. We had such a great time in our outdoor area, on the Park and down on the MUGA.

We’d been busy during the week making trophies and cards for our dads as well. We took them home to say a big thank you for helping to look after us.

A huge thank you to everyone who came and made the afternoon such a success!

Ice Skating!

We were very lucky today when an ice skating rink came to our school. Some of us were a little worried about going on the ice while some of us were really excited. We talked about how even if we were worried then we would give it a go and we might surprise ourselves. Everyone went on the ice making Miss Parker, Miss Hukin and Miss Deakin really proud.

We had a great time and even those of us who were a little reluctant at first gained confidence and everyone let go of the edge at least once! 🙂

When we got back to the classroom we talked about how we’d found our time on the ice.

Jack- It was good.

Jaesi-Mae- Good because I didn’t fall this time.

Maddison-Good because it wasn’t real ice.

Jevonte-I did it on my own with no penguin.

Brooke-When I first went on I held on and then I was ice skating by myself.

Caitlyn- I didn’t do it with a penguin.

Alissa- I was skating with a penguin. It was good because I only fell over one time then I got up without holding anyone’s hand.

Ethan-I kept falling over.

Jacob- I held onto 2 penguins , one penguin for a little bit. Then skating on my own. After all that I had another penguin for a little bit.

We also found out a bit more about ice skating by watching some videos of ice skating champions. We watched some of the World Championship Figure Skating Championships from this year.

It really inspired us and some of us were so impressed that we described it as magic!

Jaden- How she not fall? She holding hands with him.

Olopeloluwa-That’s magic! She’s doing ballet when she’s skating.

Jack-That’s cool.

Riley-That’s dangerous.

Sheldon- I can do that. I want to do it tomorrow.

Jaden- I do that next time. Maybe tomorrow. Be hard to do by yourself.

Vinnie-some ice skating champions are not falling over because they practise and practise and practise.

L’Rayah- I can do that. I can put my leg up my back.

Leo- They do that because they are right big.

We all had a fabulous day. Thanks to Mrs Lord for organising it and SIV for bringing us the skating rink. Please come again soon!

How can you continue the learning at home? 

  • Encourage your children to take small risks. If they say they can’t do something support them to give it a go and encourage them for each little step. 
  • Talk to your children about how not everything is easy and you do have to keep practising to get better, even when its hard. 
  • Look out for different athletes in sports that your children love and talk about how hard they have to practise in order to be that good.

Balance Bikes

We were very lucky this week when Rob from British Cycling came back to visit us in school. He came in before the half term break to see us and teach us some skills on the balance bikes. The balance bikes are really important for helping us to develop lots of physical skills.

These are the pictures from Rob’s first visit.

We start each session by practising some skills, often holding onto the paper ‘handlebars’. Then we get to try out our new skills on the bike.

Rob said he was really impressed by the progress we are making and he could tell that we’d been practising in between our sessions. We go on the Muga every week to practise our skills.

Rob was so impressed he gave everyone a certificate to say well done 🙂

image We’d love to know if your child has a bike a home. Do they have a balance bike or can they already ride a bike with pedals? Please complete a WOW moment or email us a photo of your child riding their bike.

Please ask for the email address in school if you don’t already have it.

Onyx Class Dancers

We’ve had a few children talking about the dancing they do out of school recently. They’ve been really brave and have been doing demonstrations for the rest of the class.

We decided to watch a video of some people dancing. Miss Parker showed us some Ballet danced by professional ballet dancers. We were memorised and watched it without a sound or any movement. Some of us said we didn’t think grown ups could get their legs that high and some of us were surprised to see boys as well as girls dancing. We watched another clip later in the day and compared to two.

We asked Miss Oades to help us the next time she was in class as she used to do lots of dance when she was younger. We made our PE session a dance session and used lots of different types of music to see how we danced differently to different music.

Can you guess what sort of music we were listening to from looking at our moves? 

We found it really interesting finding out about different types of dance. Well done to the girls who shared their home experiences of dance which led to everyone finding out more about different types of dance.

More Gymnastics Fun

We were very lucky on Wednesday because Rachel came to do an extra Gymnastics session with us in the Hall. We had such a good time when we did gymnastics with her before everyone was very excited.

We had to remember everything we learnt before and see if we could still do it as well. It was a fantastic opportunity to refresh our memories.

We love gymnastics with Rachel and really hope we get to see her again sometime soon.

Gymnastics Fun

We had a lovely surprise this week when we found out that Rachel would be doing gymnastics with us each week now. We went to the Hall and had to listen very carefully to what she taught us. She taught us to make some special shapes with our bodies.  She taught us some special new words-

tuck           straddle          pike 

We had a great time learning gymnastics and can’t until next week when we see Rachel again.

Parents/ Carers- Please remember PE day is Wednesday. Thanks for sending all the PE kits, we just have a couple of children who still need a PE kit in school. Also please remember it is best to take earrings out on a Wednesday morning so children are safe in PE sessions.
