Football Training

Just in time for the World Cup FS2 have started a fabulous Football After School Club. Places were in demand we were turning children away. Look out for more clubs in Y1 if you missed out this time.

Thr Reception children have been given a fantastic opportunity to attend an after school club where they will be trained by some Sheffield United football coaches.

On the first session, the children learned about the importance of good listening skills when they played a warm up game of traffic lights.

They then practised their dribbling skills, making sure that they made tiny touches so that they didn’t loose control of the ball.

Next, they practised changing feet, this will help them to keep procession of the ball when an opponent tackles them in a real match.

Finally, they practised their passing skills, this was a more difficult skill to develop and there were lots of children chasing balls. They are going to practise this skill again next week.

We would like to say a big thank you to Mr Little for organising the training.

Reading Buddies

Some of the children in Onyx Class were lucky enough to attend this fabulous After School Reading Club. They’ve loved it. Miss Deighton ran the club and has written all about it on Garnet class blog.
Look out for more after school clubs next year when the children are in Y1.

Garnet and Onyx Class have been very lucky over the last few weeks because we have had some amazing helpers in our class.

Miss Deighton invited Y5 children to take part in a Reading Buddies after school club with Reception children.

Each Y5 child was buddied up with 2 Reception children. They played lots of different Phonics games and listened to the younger children read which developed the Reception children’s ability to segment and blend words whilst also aiding their comprehension skills and consolidating their knowledge of how books are organised.

Miss Deighton was particularly impressed with the Y5 children’s mature and helpful manner towards the younger children. Instead of telling the Reception children what the words said they encouraged them to use their exsisting knowledge of Phonics to sound out the words. They also asked very specific questions to check their understanding of what they had read.

A great big…

This Week’s Awards- Summer 2 Week 2

Our Mathematician of the Week was working on sequencing numbers this week. She was able to look at the numbers and complete the sequence with the missing numbers. This involved counting in ones and twos and even counting backwards. She could confidently write the correct missing number and check her answer on a number line. Well done!

 

Our Writer of the Week also displayed her skills on the interactive whiteboard. She was drawing pictures of her family and then labelling them using her writing skills to sound out and write the words. She wasn’t finished there she decided she could write a sentence about them as well. Great job!

A big well done to both our winners this week- you’re getting even more ready for Year One! 🙂

This Week’s Awards- Summer 1 Week 5

Before the holidays, our Mathematician had really impressed everyone with how she has begun to lead her own learning more in maths. She had her own idea to sing the 5 Speckled Frogs song which she did remembering all the words then she started to make up her own versions.

The Writer of the Week showed how much his confidence has grown recently with his writing. Not only did her write a letter to Miss Duddle asking for a new interactive whiteboard pen (We lost ours :-() but he went to see Miss Duddle and read it to her himself. He wrote the Phase 4 words (lost/ from) all by himself 🙂

What a great job both children did 🙂
