Virtual challenges 2020
This term, children completed different sporting events at school and then they were entered into a national competition.
Year 1/2/3 all competed in learning the dance to Jungle book.
Year 4 competed in a tri golf competition.
Year 5/6 in an orienteering event.
Although we had some very high scores in these events, we didn't have any national winners. However a lot of fun was had along the way!
Year 2 MULTI SKILLS Success
This week all the Year 2 children attended a Multi Skills event held at the Secondary school. The event was organised by Miss Robson, who works in partnership with our Cluster schools and each activity was organised by Young Sports Leaders. The children were split into six teams, and mixed with children from Sherriff Hutton and Sutton On Forest.
Each activity allowed the children to develop skills they already had. The activities that the children took part in were:
Dinosaur Eggs - this required speed - the children had to run into the middle and take a tennis ball (dinosaur egg) back to their nest. While the other team members were running the children were protecting their eggs from the Young Leaders who were trying to steal them back!
Speed Bounce - how many times could you jump over the barrier in the mat? Thirty seconds might not seem like long but where you are jumping constantly - it is!!
Bench Balances - this activity required lots of concentration! The children were given different challenges to see how they could travel across the bench. Could they balance a cone and a tennis ballon their head? Could they slide like a snake with the cone and ball on their back?
Ball Coordination - this activity required the children to work together as one big team and pass the ball from one side to the other without dropping it. They also had over and under races to see which side could get it for front to back quickest! Hand eye coordination was the most important here!
Bean Bag Throw - for this activity the children needed a good aim! Hoops were set out and the further away the hoop, the more points it brought! Every bean bag that landed in a hoop earned points!
Balance Beam Coordination - this was probably the most difficult challenge for the children as it required balance, movement and speed! The children had a small bar to balance on. The make things harder, they had a circle of cones around them - which they had to pick up as quickly as they could, while remaining balanced on the bar!
Out of the six activities, three were timed and recorded - adding a competitive edge for the children. We were very proud to bring home two medals:
Jack Teare did the most jumps in the Speed Bounce, breaking the 40 mark and Alfie Ashton managed to collect all the cones, while remaining balanced on the bar in 8 seconds! He was like lightening!
A huge well done to all of the Year 2 children who took part - everyone had an enjoyable afternoon.
