Tag Rugby – Session 3

This week we had our final session of Tag Rugby with Liam from Progressive Sports.

We teamed up into small groups and had a few games of tag rugby. We loved running over the lines to score a try. This was difficult sometimes as we had to dodge a defender and we even managed to pass the ball to other team members to help them to score a try.

We’d like to say a massive thank you to Liam for teaching us the skills to be able to play tag rugby. We have had an amazing time and cannot wait until we have our next sessions with you.

Super Skipping

This week has been a very special week – we have been learning how to skip. Every day we went outside, found a space on the playground and had a go at skipping.

Some of us didn’t know how to skip on Monday but by the end of the Friday, we were all pros! We absolutely love skipping and we can’t wait to keep on practising at break times!

Gymnastics – Autumn 2 2019

During Autumn 2, we looked at gymnastics in PE.

First we looked at the different shapes you could make in gymnastics.

We learnt that you could use these shapes when you perform different movements in PE. We also learnt how to make the star, dish, arch and straight shapes.

We used the apparatus to learn how to jump correctly.

  • Feet slightly apart
  • Knees slightly bent
  • Look where you want to jump
  • Land on two feet
  • Stand up

Can you guess which shapes we were making in the air?

RuggerEds 2019

This half term we have been so lucky to have the team from RuggerEds come back into school and teach us how to play tag rugby!

We braved the weather most weeks and went outside onto the MUGA pitch so that Rob, Olly and Joe could teach us some excellent rugby skills. We absolutely loved the games you taught us. Our favourites have to be Minions and Haunted House.

At the end of each session, certificate were handed out to the Trainers of the Week. The lucky winners are below.

Thank you so much to the RuggerEds team for coming into school on a Friday morning. We will miss you lots.

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.

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! 🙂

Ice Skating at Prince Edward

We were so lucky to be able to have a portable ice rink from Ice Sheffield come to school for the day.

Each class were given time on the ice to come and practise their skills. It was such a treat and we had special boots to put on before we could go on the ice.

I’m sure that you will agree that we had a brilliant time and can’t wait to get back on the ice!

Y2 Sports Day @ EIS

We love going on a trip, especially one to the English Institute of Sport!

After a short trip on a packed-out tram, we arrived at the EIS and had a quick snack before we got ourselves into teams of 10.

We completed lots of different activities throughout the day and we had a fabulous time. Just look at some of the activities that we completed below.

Each adult then chose a member of their team to receive an Athlete of the Day certificate. The winner of this award displayed the sports values throughout the day and was a very worthy winner!

Although we didn’t have any teams that placed 1st, 2nd or 3rd on the day, we had a brilliant day and look forward to doing it all again soon!
