Foundation Stage PE

In September 2017 both Nursery and Reception will start with a multi skills and fundamental movement module.

 

Last year the children 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.

 

For more information refer the the Long term PE plan on the curriculum page of the website.

 

Year 1 PE

During the first term in this school year the children will work on multi-skills and dance, also handball skills and variations of the game.

 

Brief summary of a term last year:

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).

 

For more information refer the the Long term PE plan on the curriculum page of the website.

 

Year 2 PE

This term in PE the children will work on dance, and multi-skills with two modules of multi-skills being explored (includes aspects of team games).

 

Brief summary of a term last year:

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. In year 2 we have been taking a more in depth look at how we attack and defend together and the importance of teamwork. We have also used this teaching time to prepare the children for an upcoming LSSP competition taking place in November.

In school the children will work on multi-skills and fitness durning the first half term.

 

Brief summary of a term last year:

Year 3 have been working with Harris in this first half term on a fitness module. The children have been learning about the different types of exercise they can do, for example, aerobic and anaerobic movement, cardio workouts and why we need to regularly exercise the heart and more about resistance workouts.

The children have been learning about the different types of exercise they can do, for example, aerobic and anaerobic movement, cardio workouts and why we need to regularly exercise the heart and more about resistance workouts. The children were taught the benefits of leading a healthy lifestyle through exercise and healthy eating. They used lots of games like fitness bingo and fitness dodgeball to keep the children's interest peaked!

 

The children have been working with Mr O'Shea on the Kensington sports leadership award. This is a variation of the JOGA Leader program and the goal is to teach the children the importance of being a good role model in and around our school, not only in sport.

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 2017 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. More information to follow as the year progresses.

 

Meanwhile last year...

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.

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

Coming soon!

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!!!

SUPER STARS of DODGEBALL

 

Super Stars of dodgeball is coming back this term!

 

Around mid-October our KS2 children will have the chance to compete in an intra-school dodgeball competition. Last year over 100 children have signed up and competed to try and make it to the final, we hope to beat that number this year!

 

Results to follow - Good luck to all children involved!

Last years final!

 

They think its all over.........it is now! Well done to all of the children who competed from Key Stage 2. The final was as exciting as you may expect, every game went to a final elimination with the match being won by only one single elimination! The runners up were Miz's Minion's with the Spongy Boyz coming out as the eventual winners.

 

Watch this space Key Stage 1 children, as the competition for our younger children starts after the Christmas holiday!
