PE at Holly Meadows 2015-16

 

P.E is off to a great start this year with Holly Meadows being awarded the Sainsbury's School Games Silver Mark. An afternoon to celebrate this fantastic achievement has been planned for 1st October 2015.

 

We will continue to make use of our young leaders to make up a School Sport Organising Committee. This will be a diverse group of young people that represent all aspects of school life and join together to develop, organise and promote school sport at Level 1 of the Sainsbury's school games. They will work with teachers to organise intra-school competition and school sport. They will also use their skills to organise, promote and motivate the school to get involved in sport. In addition to this, they will be expected to write and upload match reports to the school website.

 

Running club will be back at lunchtimes with Gold, Silver and Bronze medals presented to the top three runners clocking up the most miles by the end of the year.

 

Harriet (Holly Meadows Healthy Hippo) will be looking forward to more fitness adventures outside of school.  Children are encouraged to come forward with their ideas of where they might take her and must be prepared to write and illustrate in her diary.

 

The Curriculum

 

What's coming up?

 

In KS2 we will begin with OAA - focussing on teamwork, communication and supporting others, and fitness/cross country in preparation for the imminent competition. JS coaching will once again be running an after school football club and dodgeball sessions.

 

We will then move onto dance and Yoga in the lead up to Christmas, continuing with Invasion games, Gymnastics, Tri-golf, Cricket and Athletics.

 

In KS1 we will start with OAA - to build confidence and the ability to work together moving onto Multi-skills.Dance and Yoga will follow with Invasion games/skills, Gymnastics, Tri-golf and Athletics later in the school year.We are delighted to be able to offer Balanceability sessions for KS1 pupils who are unable to ride a bike without stabilisers.

 

Swimming will start in January for Year 4/5/6 pupils needing to complete their 25 metre certificate and continue with Year 3 through until the summer term with Year 2. It is vital to support your child as much as possible so that we can reach the target of every child able to swim 25m by the end KS2.

Picture: Our Year 5s (now year 6s) receiving expert tennis coaching from Jerry Bird (LTA coach) and motivation from Leon Batiste - 200m gold medal winner at the Commonwealth games 2010.

 

 They will work with teachers to organise intra-school competition and school sport. They will also use their skills to organise, promote and motivate the school to get involved in sport.

In addition to this, they will be expected to write and upload match reports to the school website.

Last year the P.T.A kindly bought handballs for both key stages.  This game is very easy to play with simple rules and proved a big hit.  We plan to continue to put the handballs to good use again this year.

We are also extremely grateful to the P.T.A for supplying us with brand new polo shirts, complete with logo, for competition participants this school year. Look out for photos on the school website.

Running club will be back at lunchtimes as we have a fierce reputation to uphold regarding cross country.

Regarding the curriculum, in KS2 we will begin with OAA focussing on teamwork and supporting others, and fitness/cross country in order to fulfil the Ofsted expectation of children at the end of KS2 able to sustain 5 minutes of vigorous exercise.  We will then move onto dance, rugby, gymnastics, basketball, cricket/rounders and athletics.

In KS1 we will begin with multi-skills in preparation for a festival in October moving onto dance, invasion games, gymnastics, tennis, tri-golf and athletics.

Swimming will start in January for Year 4/5/6 and continue with Year 3 through until the summer term with Year 2. It is vital to support your child as much as possible so that we can reach the target of every child able to swim 25m by the end KS2.

Coming soon: Change For Life Club (KS2)

This club will be run during curriculum time and will be primarily to encourage those children who are unable, or choose not to, attend other activities outside of school.

We have secured some fabulous resources which will be exclusively available to those children who attend this club including wristbands for members and colourful workbooks.

Invitation only!
