We have been really lucky to attend the Y2 Sports Day at the English Institute of Sport. We took part in lots of different activities to test our throwing and catching skills as well as looking at seeing how quick we could run, jog and walk. Everybody had lots of fun… we can’t wait for next year’s sports day!
Thank you to our parents and carers who came along with on the day. Your help means so much to the children and help us continue to attend these events.
Here are just some of the activities that we took part in.
This week, some of Y2 were invited to an athletics event run by some students from SHU at Ponds Forge. We set off on the tram and couldn’t wait to get started. Lots of other local schools had been invited too! Once everyone has arrived, we made a start.
We completed lots of different events to practise our skills. We even had a go at some brand new activities too! Javelin was definitely one of our favourite activities of the morning.
At the end of the morning, we found out who had taken 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.
We were so pleased to hear that Prince Edward had come into 2nd place! We are very proud of ourselves and we can’t wait for the next invitation to join in with more sporting activities.
Across school, we have been thinking about how to keep ourselves healthy. We have had lots of visitors in school and activities to complete to help to promote a healthy lifestyle. Take a look below to see what we have been up to…
Yoga is a good way to exercise both our minds and our bodies. Check out our yoga moves!
If you want to do move yoga at home, look at Comsic Kids on Youtube for more ideas.
We absolutely loved our Active Mission Session with Errol. It was so much fun trying to get around all of the different activities. Our favourite activity was trying to hit as many lights as we could in just one minute! The record was 32 set by Mateo!
We got to use exercise bikes with smoothie makers on the front to make some delicious smoothies. We had to pedal as fast as we could to blend up the fruit and the yoghurt before we were able to drink them. They were really tasty and it was fun working together to making different smoothies!
Mrs Murch spent some time with us looking at PANTS. Ask your child about what PANTS means.

This half term, we have been learning how to play football with Ash from Sheffield United Community Foundation. As an extra special treat, Ash came into the classroom to help us with our learning.
We looked at the values that footballers need to have on and off the pitch and how this can help us with our learning in and out of the classroom.
This values are:
We thought about what it meant to play the right way, what it means to be respectful and what qualities we would need to be a team player and/or a captain of a team. We learnt that we can’t always win but more importantly, how to react if this happens.
Thank you Ash, we had a wonderful morning and we will make sure that we are using this values when we are in the classroom.
Another treat for Pearl class was when Craig Malkin from LINKS Sheffield dropped in for an hour and he brought some bikes with him. Pearl class were lucky enough to be able have a quick go and show Craig our fabulous bike riding skills.
