Foundation Stage PE

This year the children have so far covered multiskills, gymnastics and soft play with exercise to music being an ongoing theme throughout the PE curriculum. So far our gymnastics has been heavily based on different methods of travelling, balance and simple rolling skills. Multi-skills is a topic we use to teach children about transferable skills we use in different games, sports and activities. We have been focusing heavily on movement, body awareness and balance.

Next half term the children will be introduced to using simple equipment in gymnastics and we will focus on dance and movement to music in the secnd part of the term.

Year 1 PE

During the first term in this school year the children have worked on multi-skills and fitness, also handball skills and variations of the game.

 

Mr O'Shea is teaching handball skills relating to multi-skills and how we easily we can transfer skills between different games and sports. The sport we are focusing on is a variation of handball called mat-ball. We have also used this teaching time to prepare the children for an upcoming LSSP competition taking place in November.

 

Mr Harris has been working on a multi-skills, health and fitness module. Teaching transferable skills and showing children how we can link and use these skills in any number of different situations. Mr Harris has also been using his experience and background in the fitness industry to teach and encourage the children to lead fit and healthy lives.

 

More to come as the school year progresses (Check the school twitter feed for regular pictures of the children during PE).

JOGA LEADERS

 

JOGA Leaders are children who lead fun physical activities for our other children at lunchtimes. The volunteers take part in training and then work in small teams to organise games and fun sessions to help keep themselves and others active. The JOGA Leaders take it in turns to give one lunchtime per week to the programme. In doing so, they gain valuable experience of leadership and volunteering, including team work skills, organisational competence and developing their powers of communication.

 

Over the years our JOGA Leaders have provided many activities to lots of children! This year two of our young female leaders are really trying to increase female participation across many sports! We have really seen a huge increase in the amount of girls who are showing an interest in sports they may not have without the JOGA Leaders help! Keep up the good work JOGA LEADERS!

 

Starting in September 2016 children in Year 4, 5 and 6 all the children have been working on a Kensington sports leadership award, they will have to complete 5 playground sports sessions after their initial training to earn the award. The next step would be to apply to be a JOGA LEADER!

 

School Football Teams

 

This year we have once again entered the excellent football competition at Admiral Park in Toxteth run by Target Football.

 

Up to now we have played we have played 3 games, drawing 2 against St Cleopas and Pleasant Street and losing Kingsley.

 

The boys team have also played at an Inter-Faith football festival at Liverpool Academy where the emphasis was not on competition, but friendship between people from different ethnic backgrounds and religions. We played 7 games in that event, winning 4, losing 2 and drawing 1.

 

The girls football team are playing Matthew Arnold in an indoor football competition in mid-October and also have a few more futsal games on the calender!

 

 

School Sports and Competitions

 

This year we have already been very busy in terms school sports competition. We have attended football, dodgeball, basketball and cross country. Officially we have attended 10 events across these sports with more to come over the coming weeks and months.

 

 

If your child would like to represent our school in any sports competitions it is very simple, they can speak to Mr O'Shea, attend the relevant after-school club or prove they are attending sports clubs out of school hours.

Parents Fitness Club

Every Monday morning at 9am we invite parents and friends of the school to attend a fitness class with Mr O'Shea.

We work on fitness circuits and fitness related to non-contact boxing activities while from week to week trying out new and different sports!

 

If you are interested in attending get in touch with Mr O'Shea!

Introducing New Sports

We normally introduce new sports and activities as part of the JOGA Leader programme. This term we have introduced soft tip darts and soft archery to different year groups during their PE lessons.

The benefits of these sports are specific to develpong hand eye coordination in a fun and different way. It also helps us to teach the children how they can transfer skills from one activity to the next.

These target based activities are also fantastic for developing the children's numeracy skills. They can add their scores up or subtract scores from an overall target and a few of our children have even come with their own scoring systems.

Watch this space as these activities will be making their way into our fantastic after school programme after Christmas! DARTS CLUB COMING SOON!!!
