Year 2 are practising the skills needed to play volleyball. Controlling the ball is key and we have been working on a lot of ball control skills in PE! We are definitely improving.
A HUGE well done to our two year 3/4 basketball teams who competed in tonight’s competition at Whickham School. Our B team came 2nd in their round robins, just missing out on the semi finals by one point!! Our A team went through to the finals and came an overall 2nd, a huge well done to you all.
This week Year 4 were involved in a Volleyball event at Whickham Comprehensive led by their young Sports Leaders. They showed the children how to hit the ball with control and accuracy. Then they were involved in an intra school competition as well as competing with other schools in the cluster.
We’ve started gymnastics sessions again in year 2 and it is very clear how all the practise since reception class is helping our skills to develop. We are stronger at holding positions, balancing for longer and more stable, better at rolling and our confidence in general gymnastics is better.
