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.


PE in Pearl Class

This half term, we have been learning how to play rounders in PE. This is a game that has lots of rules so we started off practising our throwing and catching. The following week, we used bats to try and hit the ball. This week, we got a chance to set up mini games. Miss Varley was so impressed with the super team work we did and we loved playing the game. We can’t wait to play again next week!


Y2 Sports Day

We were so excited to be going on a trip to the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield to join in with other Y2 children to do lots of different sport activities. This was run by LINKS that help to run PE in schools across Sheffield.

We left school and had to get two trams. The first one to take us into town and then we had to swap over to catch the second tram to take us to the EIS.

When we arrived at the EIS, we found our seats and then we split up into our teams. Here are some of the activities that we completed on the day.

As we moved around each activity, we got to meet two mascots who came to support the teams and cheer them on.

We had that much fun that we even had 2 children in our class have their wobbly teeth fall out.


At the end of the day, the scores were added up and 1st, 2nd and 3rd place were announced. Although we didn’t come in the top three places, our teachers were so impressed with how we were able to work together as a team, showed good sportsmanship and our excellent cheering for each other, everyone was awarded a certificate for taking part and one child from each team was awarded a certificate for being the athlete of the day by showing one of the LINKS sports values.


A fantastic effort from everyone! Well done for being brilliant ambassadors for our school!

World Book Day 2017

Today was World Book Day and we had such a lovely time coming to school dressed in as our favourite book characters.

We had everyone… from Willy Wonka and his Oompa Loompas to Harry Potter… Princesses to Where’s Wally… Mr Bump to a ferocious looking lion. You all looked amazing!


There was a competition around school for each class to design their classroom door like their favourite book. Our favourite book is Supertato by Sue Hendra and we based our book on that book. Take a look for yourself.


Just before lunch, we took a short walk around school to have a look at what each of the other classes have designed for their door.


Everyone has worked so hard to complete their doors. What a fantastic effort Team Prince.

Finally at the end of the day, school council went around each class to choose the winner for the best costume. Our winner was so surprised to win!
