Year 6 were invited to attend a multisports day organised by Cardiff Sport and Lloyds TSB, at Tal-y-Bont. All children had the opportunity to take part in various activities. There were 24 teams of 10 competing during the day. The activities included Football, hockey, Athletics, judo, gymnastics and a healthy relay.
The children had a fantastic day, one they deserved after their hard work in the last fortnight with their tests. Some of the activities were a completely new to experience but they all tried their best.. At the end of the day all the children received medals from Lloyds TSB to commemorate their achievements during the day.
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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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:
Multi Sports December 2015 Year 4
Year 4 boys and girls had the opportunity with Sport Cardiff to partake in a Multi Sports Event at Tal-y- Bont on Thursday December 10th
The team consisted of Harriet, Agnes, Mikalya, Sofia, Scarlet, Sienna, Isabel, Sianna, Oliver, Jayden, David, Jos, Denil, Max, Glen, James, Darragh .
The children were spilt into mixed teams of three and had to rotate and try out seven different sports: - tennis, football, netball, skipping, athletics, wheelchair race and golf.
On arrival, the children were excited to see the variety of stations that they would be participating and learning about the different sports. The day started at 9.45 and the children were on the go until 12.30. Everybody participated and encouraged each other all the time.
During the last activity the pupils had to do a ‘whole team’ relay which was thoroughly enjoyed and everybody achieved their best.
At the end of the event the results were verified. Our school were fortunate to have individual winners including James who won the tennis section – hitting the ball up and down (his score was over 200) ….. A superb effort!!!!!! Next was the standing jump and the smallest child Jos came second - definitely a mighty atom!!!!
Mikayla collected the certificate for the whole school and we triumphantly achieved second place! Well Done St Joes!
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.
