Today we played rounders in our P.E. Lesson. We worked on throwing and catching to help our fielding skills. We learned how to be a bowler and a back stop.
Today we had an obstacle course. We had to move under and over obstacles. We had to work on side skipping for avoiding opposition. We had to run on our toes through the ladders. We had great fun crawling under tunnels using the strength in our arms to pull ourselves through. We managed to do the whole course as a relay team. We had great fun!
On the afternoon of 20th June, 2018, we will be holding a sponsored event, which will be a penalty shoot out as a joint venture with Barnsley Reds in the Community. The aim is to raise as much money as we possibly can, which will be split 50/50 between the school and Reds in the Community.
There are prizes for children who raise the most money. children raising £10 or more will receive a Barnsley FC baseball cap, £25 or more will receive the baseball cap and a mitre football, and children raising £50 or more will receive the baseball cap, the football, and two tickets to a Barnsley FC home league game.
The child who raises the most money in the school will receive an autographed Barnsley Football Shirt, two tickets to a Barnsley FC home league game, a baseball cap and a mitre football.
The the top penalty taker from each class will be presented with a badge.
So Friday 13th April marked the day of the maths games competition. The annual competition has grown over the years and now has to be held at Kirk Balk due to the number of schools involved. Nine schools put forward teams of four year 6 children to take part. During the morning all children were taught different games to play, ready for the competition in the afternoon. Our maths gamers, Sean, Arthur, Jared and Seth had great fun learning the new strategies and forward thinking games
We have been lucky to have a Hallam Student on placement with us who is qualified to teach Taekwando, and she shared her expertise with most classes throughout school teaching the disciplines of the martial art.
Taekwondo is a Korean Martial art formed in the 1940’s and developed in the 1950’s by Korean martial artists with experience in karate, Chinese martial arts and indigenous Korean martial arts. Taekwondo emphasises head-height kicks, jumping and spinning kicks and fast kicking techniques.
The photos show the Y6 class having fun with basic Taekwondo moves in their P.E. Lesson.
Over the last half-term, we have had the privilege of a cricket coach from Rockingham Cricket Club coaching in Y5 P.E. lessons teaching skills for the children to apply to the game. It has been a lot of fun and the children have enjoyed this experience.
Cricket is a bat and ball game played between two teams of eleven players each attempting to score as many runs as they can by trying to hit the ball the furthest. Runs are scored when batters run between two wickets whilst their opponents bowl and field to minimise points scored.
The cricket coaching has been great and the children have learned lots of skills and tricks. We already have four cricket players who play for Rockingham and Worsbrough Bridge Cricket Teams, but a lot more interest was shown from the children, so hopefully, this coaching will encourage our Y5 children to join our local teams and become more active.
