Healthy Competition and Physical Families!

BREAKING NEWS FOR PTA FUNDRAISER

Week beginning 11th June will be our ‘Healthy Competition Week’ where all pupils will learn about keeping healthy and take part in house sport competitions: dodgeball, netball and hockey (plus rugby for KS2). Culminating with our KS2 and 1 Sports Days on Friday. 

On Friday from 3:30 – after you have enjoyed watching your children take part in their Sports Day activities –  it will be time for our ‘FAMILIES GETTING PHYSICAL’ fair. Here are the activities you can take part in:

Family 5-a-side football and netball competitions (teams can consist of adults and children). Choose a team name, agree on a kit (bibs will be available), families can come together to form a team and there will be handicaps agreed (headstarts given to teams depending on abilities). Staff will referee and it will be £10 entry per team with prizes for the winning teams in the finals. 

Obstacle courses.  £1 a go, try to beat the times of other children and adults  

Beat the goalie, football and hockey penalties. £1 a go.   

Table tennis. Play a game for £2. Singles or doubles, it’s up to you.  

Dodgeball games in the hall – £1 a game. 6 vs 6

WORLD CUP ACTIVITIES:

To celebrate the start of the World Cup that week. Children will be able to come into school in a football/sports kit and bring in a £1. Once handed into their teacher they will receive the name of a country competing in the World Cup and if their team wins, they will win a prize!

Finally, do you think you and your children can manage a team of internationals to World Cup victory? We will be setting a community fantasy football World Cup league through the telegraph. Choose a team name, a formation and 11 players that could win cash prizes. Make transfers to injured or out of form players throughout the tournament. £10 entry and half the money will go to PTA. 

Coffee morning/Questionnaire winner!

This morning I had a great time with several parents and grandparents of children from reception to year 6.  We discussed the feedback from questionnaires that I sent out (of which I received over 50 in return (thank you!)), the communication parents receive, first aid provision, extra-curricular activities and the possibility of going paperless!

During the AOB slot – transition to the next class was discussed, which may or may not involve your child going into a mixed-age class. The positive comments from parents of children that have experienced this was lovely to hear. Mrs. Evans sent a newsletter recently which mentioned that class structures have yet to be decided but as soon as they are, parents will be informed and this is very rarely finalised until June. We spend a lot of time thinking about which class your child will be best suited and look carefully  at a wide range of factors.

To conclude our coffee morning, we drew a winner from the questionnaires returned…

Here they are collecting an Easter Egg and a pass for a free game of bowling!

Thank you for your participation!

Mr. Bradshaw

 

Year 3 to Year 6 Games Rota – Friday Afternoons

Please see the attached rota for when your child should be doing the 8 different activities on offer.

Please note, if a session is cancelled then it will roll over onto the following Friday. At the bottom of the rota, you will also notice the footwear they require.

I have arranged the rota so that the older children are undertaking rugby and football (on the field) throughout the winter months as we expect more of these pupils to own a pair of boots. However, the rain is scuppering that theory slightly! We will be starting after school football on Fridays for all KS2 children next children so they will be able to get extra use out of their boots! Letters to follow and the club is £5 to cover the costs of new metal nets.

Your child will receive quality coaching for 4 weeks, culminating in matches on the final week (except in dance!).

Your child will be coming home in their kit. Let’s hope the weather is kind to us! 

(For future reference, you will be able to find this rota in the Curriculum section of our website, alternatively, you could carry out a search.)
