Y2 Sports Day 2019

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.

Y2 Athletics @ Ponds Forge

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.

RuggerEds

We have had the most amazing treat this half term – Y2 have been learning how to play tag rugby with the coaches from RuggerEds.

We have learnt lots about respect, following the rules and working as part of a team as well as skills that we can use such as dodging, running and how to hold a rugby ball properly.

We couldn’t wait for Friday mornings to come around so that we could build on the skills we had learnt in the previous week.

Every week, the coaches would choose some ‘Trainers of the Week’. Our winners from this half term are below…

A massive thank you to Rob and Joe for coming to school every week to teach us how to play rugby! We had a blast! 🙂

Healthy Living Week 2018

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.

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.

Gymnastics with Rachael

As a special treat, we got the opportunity to have an extra gymnastics session with Rachael. We asked us what we could remember about gymnastics from our last session with her and she was super impressed with what we were able to remember.

Our first job of the morning was to learn how to do a headstand safely.

Can you remember what Rachael said? Which 2D shape did we have to remember? 

We had to balance very carefully on our heads and see how still we could be, without falling over.

Our next job was to practise making a bridge with our bodies.

Finally we had a go at just balancing on our hands. This was called a frog balance.

Thank you for spending time with us this year Rachael. We have loved learning gymnastics with you.
