Football with SUCF

This week, Miss Varley had an extra special surprise for us. For our PE session, we got to work with Ash from the Sheffield United Community Foundation.


He taught us for to dribble and pass between a short distance and by the end of the session, we were able to put these skills to the test when we split into 4 teams and had a game of fottball against each other.


We can’t wait for our next session with Ash.


‘Little steps… Big control’



We had our last football session with the coaches from Sheffield United Community Foundation this week. They were so impressed with how much progress we have made in the last 3 weeks. We definitely have some footballers in the making in Pearl class.


After we had warmed up, we were split into 4 coloured different teams and we had some short games against each other.

Miss Varley saw some fantastic team spirit, some brilliant goals and some even better goal celebrations! At the end of all the matches, we did have a winning team and they were…

This half-term, we are learning how to play football with Sheffield United Community Foundation. Although it was wet and miserable outside, we weren’t going to let the rain spoil our fun.


We learnt how to dribble the ball around each other, stop the ball from rolling away with our foot and how to do toe taps. By the end of the session, we were able to run much faster with the ball, being able to keep it under control. We can’t wait for next week’s session, fingers crossed that the sun will shine for us!


Don’t forget that PE is every Friday and this half-term, you will need a suitable outdoor PE kit.
