On Wednesday 14th October, each year group across the school took part in a sponsored scooter event. Each class were sponsored for the number of laps they completed during the time given. After speaking with the children, they spoke enthusiastically about collecting sponsors from family and friends at home. Today, Mrs Hutchinson and Mrs Ahmed counted up each and every penny and we were overwhelmed with the amount of generous contributions the children had received. As a school we managed to raise £1,277.45! The money will now be used to enhance and improve our PE curriculum for all the children across the school. What a fantastic way to end the half term!
Next half term, we will continue to work alongside QFirst Sport coaches. Y4 and Y5 will have some curriculum support sessions for invasion games and multi-skills. Y2 and Y3 will also have the opportunity to take part in a Multi-skills and games after school club. Letters will be given out during the first week back. Our Lunchtime Leader activities will continue with Ryan our lunchtime coach. Ryan has worked alongside the Y5 and Y6 children for the past half term to train and coach the children to lead their own activities and games for the younger children.
Through the use of the PE information board in school, I have introduced the ‘Sports Organising Crew’ to the Y6 children. Y6 can choose to sign up to be part of the ‘crew’. The Sports Organising Crew involves a small group of children initiating and leading multi skill based activities for the younger children across the school, under the supervision of an adult. There will be more details to follow in a few weeks time.
Enjoy your half term holiday and try to stay active! If you are looking for any sporting activities to take part in, click on the QFirst sports web page for any clubs they are holding next week.
