KS2 Sports Day 2021
It was wonderful to be able to hold our Sports Day this year on the school field and to make it even more perfect the sun was shining too! It was so special to be out together as a KS albeit in their bubbles.
This year we ran 6 stations: Shuttle Run, Long Jump, Speed Bounce, Vertical High Jump, Chest Push and Javelin. The scores went towards a total and Gold, Silver and Bronze certificates awarded to each Year Group.
The range of events meant that there was a favourite for everyone and the smiles on the children’s faces were proof of that!
KS1 Sports Day
The Year 6 children have, this year, planned and run the KS1 sports day from organising activities, making their score sheets, scoring and running each station. We had a variety of throwing, running, ball skills and multi skills; each station was run brilliantly with them organising each group by telling and helping them with their activity.
This has given them an insight into the all-round skills that are needed to run a competition and the responsibilities that go with it - they all rose to the challenge which resulted in a well-run and very enjoyable afternoon.
Thank you Year 6!
Gymnastics Taster Session
Mrs Ellis has led a gymnastics taster session in school today. The session involved fun activities giving the children an insight into gymnastics and the development of fine and gross motor skills.
Year 6 children from Class 4 were joined by Cockshutt’s Year 6 for a sports morning at Lakelands School. They took part in an Archery and Tri-Golf competition, enjoying target archery and distance archery and afterwards playing 4 different Tri-Golf activities. It was good to see them participating as a Year group at what will be, for some of them, their new School in September and seeing familiar faces from our federated schools. It was, again, so good to be going out of school and enjoying a morning of sport.
