School Sport Report 2015-2016

Physical Development across the Curriculum.

 

In Foundation effective provision for Physical development need careful planning across All areas of Learning to ensure that children have opportunities to develop, apply and extend their gross and fine manipulative skills as well as opportunities to develop their understanding of health and safety issues.  There are many opportunities for children to develop skills, knowledge and understanding within the other Areas of Learning and within teaching areas in the school.

Personal and Social Development, Well Being and Cultural Diversity

  • use movements to express themselves-happy skips or slow stomping movements to express anger, progressing to using their whole bodies in an expressive way.
  • play and work together in imaginary and structured games activities to promote cooperative working.

Language, Literacy and Communication Skills

  • have opportunities, through pictorial and written form to devise games and rules to adhere to
  • respond to instructions in physical games, stating with verbal and pictorial then moving to written instructions.

Mathematical Development

  • develop fine manipulate skills
  • develop gross motor skills by using large climbing equipment.

Welsh Language Development

  • communicate by listening to and responding to instructions in Welsh in physical activities.

Knowledge and Understanding of the World

  • (through planes structures activities) develop an awareness of dangers in their immediate environment, indoors and outdoors.

Creative Development

  • develop coordination skills by moving and dancing to music from different cultures

 

 

In Key Stage 2 , activities should build on pupils' enthusiasm and energy for movement.

There are four broad areas of experience in physical education:

  • Health, fitness, and well- being activities.
  • Creative activities
  • Adventurous activities
  • Competitive activities

These broad categories are distinctly different in the type of experience they offer.

During the year we try and fulfil all these areas and pupils have the opportunity to take part in various sport and activities.

On Friday July 1st  we were invited to a netball and  tag rugby tournament   at Christ the  King Primary School and we had an AMAZING TIME,    

We tried our best and used the skills we had learnt during our lessons but we were knocked out in the semi finals - like WALES  in the Euro’s. 

The team consisted of Lexi, Sam, Marcello, Aaron, Diogo, Harrison, Osian, Sina and the best coach in the world MRS WHEELER!!!! We had some delicious oranges!

Semi final Loss

 

 

After three games of Tag Rugby we were the winners on points of Pool B. This enabled us to move onto the we went on to play the Runners up (St Joseph’s Penarth) from Pool A in the semi finals but unfortunately we were beaten. St Joseph’s, Penarth went on to win the Tournament so we were beaten by the best team on the day.

We had a great day and Mrs Wheeler was very proud of our playing and our behaviour.

The Netball Competition:

 

Mrs Jefferies selected a group of girls from Year 5 and Year 4 to play in a netball tournament at Christ the King Primary School.  We played against a few schools and we had lots of fun!!!

Our first match was against Christ the king ‘B’.

Our next game was against St Phillip Evans girls, they were a good team, they scored first! But soon enough, Xantippe scored 2 goals for us- YEY! –we won our match!

Even though we did not win against all our matches and did not get into the finals, we had the best day ever

Our team consisted of Xantippe (the captain ), Dania, Elisha, Mikayla, Agnes, Emily, and Donyia.

In the words of Gareth Bale ‘We are proud of our team and pleased that we got ALL the way there without giving up and we hope someday that we will get to the very top and win.’ We had delicious oranges as a little snack and some squash to drink, it powered our energy to score some goals! Our coach was Mrs Brooks and helped us on the way with some good moves.

Live Your Goals……….

Football goals of course!!!

 

Last Friday the Year 3 and Year 4 girls participated in ‘FIFA Live Your Goal.’ This was a girls’ only invitation football skills event.

It was a day to give the girls a taster of football and to encourage them to take up the sport.

The taster session took place at Welsh Institute of Sport, Sophia Gardens. SportCardiff were the organisers.

The warm up began and everybody was taken by  surprise because it involved music, dance or Zumba Football.  The moves that were performed were all designed to improve our fitness, skills, coordination and enjoyment so as to make us better footballers.

Everybody was split into groups and rotated around each section, some had matches against one another and others were trying out football skills and ball control.

In the afternoon session the girls had a go at Power Shot………How hard can you kick the ball?

We were all disappointed when we had to leave at the end of the afternoon because we had had so much fun and learned so many new football skills.

We want to thank everybody from SportCardiff for inviting us and for making our day a great experience.

We all hope we will be able to go again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yoga for Wellbeing

 

Year 5 experienced a taster session of Yoga for Wellbeing.  The class lesson was led by Sinead – a yoga instructor who shared her time with us to

help us understand what Yoga is.

Historically yoga was more than just a method of teaching; it was a way of life. You dedicated yourself to a lifestyle and culture that surpassed meditation techniques and included healthy eating habits, bathing habits, social interaction and work. Its philosophy is rooted in a physical culture of health and well-being that is still emphasised today and explains why over 15 million people in the world now practise this ancient tradition.Every yoga asana (pose) has a different name and includes standing postures, seated twists backbends, arm balances, inversions and core holds. The practise of yoga as a whole gives many more benefits than you might think…

8 reasons why yoga is so good for you:

  • Lowers stress and improves mood
  • Boost confidence
  • Lowers the risk of injury
  • Helps lose weight
  • Increases flexibility
  • Improves muscle tone and strength
  • Benefits breathing and lowers blood pressure
  • Improves heatlth
  • At the end of the session the children had a cool down, relaxing and breathing and thinking about the session they had just experienced.
  • Have a look at some of the photographs we took during the session

FIFA Football  ’Beat It’

On Friday November  20th 2015   Year 5 and 6 girls were invited to attend a football festival day, organised by Sport Cardiff with FIFA as the main sponsor at the Welsh Institute of Sport, Sophia Gardens, Cardiff

The main event was to encourage girls to learn skills and play football. On arrival at the sports centre all the girls were given a tee shirt with the logo with ‘Live your Goals’ written on. 

In the morning session the girls had 5 different activities  take part in. There was  also a question an answer session where they could ask Welsh Ladies footballers anything about their career.

The morning began with a Zumba  warm up. The  next  four  activities they were doing different ball skills,  controlling the ball with their hands and feet and using their eye hand coordination.

The last activity of the morning was to design your own football kit.  A well deserved rest and some very classy designs.

The afternoon session began with ‘Football Beat It’ –  the girls had to perform a dance while using the football. Definitely, an exercise to get yourself fit and improve the football skills.

The last event was to see how hard you can kit a football. Our winner was Neha Sunny who hit the target at 36mph.  Well Done!!!!!!

The girls had a most enjoyable day experiencing something  completely new. Maybe some of the girls will be inspired to carry on and play football either at school or in a club.
