WC 27.4.20

At this time of year in PE we would usually be practicing for Sports day. I would still like you to do this at home. You may need to use ‘different equipment.’ 

Our sports day events include:

Sprint race

Run as fast as you can from one point to another. Pump your arms, use high knees and look ahead. Remember to stay in your lane!

Egg and spoon race

You will need a wooden spoon and a small ball or a rolled up pair of socks. Hold the spoon in one hand and place the small ball/socks on your spoon. Put the other hand behind your back. Move forward with the spoon and ball/socks. If the ball/socks fall off your spoon stop, place back on your spoon and carry on. Remember, slow and steady!

Sack race

Jump with two feet together. You could use a potato sack or a skipping rope. Stand on the skipping rope and hold the handles and jump. If you don’t have any of these then just practice jumping with two feet together. Remember to jump for distance, not height!

Bean bag race

If you don’t have bean bags use 5 rolled up pairs of socks. You will need to place the 5 pairs of socks next to 5 markers in front of you. One at a time you need to collect the bean bags/socks placing them into a hoop. If you don’t have a hoop use a bucket or washing up bowl. Remember to experiment with the order that you collect the bean bags/socks!

Relay race

You’ will need to get the whole family involved in this one! Use a wooden spoon as your baton. Hold the wooden spoon and run as fast as you can to the next person. Pass the spoon carefully to the next person. Do this until everyone has run. Remember-don’t drop the baton!

WC 04.05.20

Please continue to practice your sports day races at home. Why not ask a family member to time how long it takes you to do the race. Try and beat your time!

This week I would also like you to complete the 'Be Active' page of the CWMT Wellbeing Challenge  (page 8) see attached file. Remember  you should be taking part in at least 60 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity a day. 

WC 11.05.20

This week I would like you to take on the 2.6 challenge. The 2.6 is a fantastic way to stay active from your bedroom, bathroom, living room, balcony, garden or park... everyone can join in!

All you need to do is come up with an idea around the numbers of 2.6 or 26.

  1. Think of a few fun ideas you can do safely at home
  2. Compete your Challenge
  3. Share a photo or video of your Challenge on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram using the hashtag #TwoPointSixChallenge

WC 18.5.20

This week we should be celebrating Sports day. I would love for you all to take part in your own family sports day at home. If you can include any of our sports day events that would be great! (see wc 27.04.20) I would also love to see some of your own e.g the wheelbarrow or three legged race. Get the whole family involved and have lots of fun!

HALF TERM

WC 01.06.20

This half term we will be focusing of striking/fielding and net sports. Can you think of any sports when you strike a ball or use any fielding techniques?

This week we will be focusing on throwing (underarm). You will need a tennis ball. If you dont have a tennis ball or a ball that is similar in size then roll up a pair of socks and use them. 

Teaching points:

  1. The child should hold the ball in their dominant hand (left or right handed)
  2. Look at the target with both feet pointed towards it
  3. Swing the arm holding the ball backwards like an elephant’s trunk, then as it goes forward, release the ball.  The child can also step a foot forward as they throw (the foot opposite the throwing hand).
  4. Remind the child to keep their eye on the target.

Set up an underarm throwing circuit in your garden.

  • Station 1
    Children attempt to throw their ball/socks at a toilet roll tower with a teddy bear/light object on top.  Their goal is to knock the teddy bear or object off.
  • Station 2
    Children attempt to throw their ball/socks into a bucket
  • Station 3
    With a partner children attempt to successfully throw and catch the ball/socks as many times as they can without dropping it.
  • Station 4
    Children attempt to throw the ball/socks to hit a specific brick on a wall.

WC 08.06.20

This week we will be focusing on throwing (overarm). Last week we focused on the over underarm throw. The underarm throw is used over short distances, when do you think you would use an overarm throw? You will need a tennis ball again. If you dont have a tennis ball or a ball that is similar in size then roll up a pair of socks and use them. 

Teaching points:

  1. 1. Eyes focused on target
  2. 2. Stands side-on to target
  3. 3. Weight on the rear foot
  4. 4. Stepping forward on opposite foot to throwing arm
  5. 5. Hips then shoulders rotate forward
  6. 6. Follow through with throwing arm towards target
  7. 7. The ball should be gripped with fingers like rabbit ears

Set up an overarm throwing circuit in your garden. This circut should be the same as the under arm throwing circuit. The overarm throw is used over a bigger distance (it travels further) children should be stood further away from their target for this circuit. If they find it easy-move even further back, If they find it too difficult-move closer.

  • Station 1
    Children attempt to throw their ball/socks at a toilet roll tower with a teddy bear/light object on top.  Their goal is to knock the teddy bear or object off.
  • Station 2
    Children attempt to throw their ball/socks into a bucket
  • Station 3
    With a partner children attempt to successfully throw and catch the ball/socks as many times as they can without dropping it.
  • Station 4
    Children attempt to throw the ball/socks to hit a specific brick on a wall.

WC 15.06.20

Next week as a school I would like us all to take part in National School Sport Week. Please register through this link for free:

https://www.youthsporttrust.org/national-school-sport-week-home

The UK-wide campaign will challenge people to take on their families, friends and neighbours in virtual sporting challenges. More information to follow.

This week we will be focusing on rolling a tennis ball (or small ball) and stopping the tennis ball using a long barrier. Last week we focused on the over arm throw. The overarm throw can be used over both short and long distances. Which sports do you think involve rolling a ball? You will need a tennis ball again. If you dont have a tennis ball use another or object that is similar in size. 

Teaching points for the long barrier:

  1. Move to the line of the ball, getting into a low and balanced position.
  2. Get sideways to the ball and kneel, creating a barrier with no gap between your knee and heel.
  3. Keeping your eye on the ball, collect the ball with fingers pointing down.

Long Barrier

Activity-With a partner number yourselves 1 & 2. Partner 1 rolls the ball along the floor to partner 2. Partner 2 must stop the ball using a long barrier. Switch roles throughout.

WC 22.06.20

It's Virtual Town Sports Week!

This week we should be competing along with the other Crewe and Nantwich Schools in our annual Town Sports event. As Town Sports isn't taking place in real life this year the Crewe and Nantwich School Sports Partnership have created a Virtual Town Sports event for children from all year groups to take part in!

The aim of Virtual Town Sports is for as many children to take part as possible. You can compete against other people in your household but the main competition will be based on the number of children taking part from each school.

There are 5 events for you to take part in, 3 field and 2 track events. The events are standing long jump, standing triple jump, shot put, bean bag race and hurdles race. Please have a go at as many of the challengesas you can and submit pictures or videos to your class teacher via email. PointS will be awarded for each entry in each event and the school with the most points will be the Virtual Town Sports winners. Come on Wizzy!

You have until Friday 26th June to submit your entries into the competition. You will receive a digital certificate for taking part. The events will be simple to run and require very little equipment. 

The activity cards for the 5 Virtual Town Sports events are attached. 

WC 29.06.20

Thank you to all our amazing young athletes that took part in our Virtual Town Sports Competition last week. We had entires from both Y1 classes and all key worker children that are currently in school. A big thank you also to Zayne, Brooke, Alex, Ffion, Reuben and Alycia for taking part at home. We are awaiting results so will keep you updated. 

This week we will be focusing on striking a ball with a bat or tennis racket. Over the past few weeks we've been working on our fielding techniques, you will need to use the underarm throw again in this practice.  You will need a tennis ball again. If you dont have a tennis ball use another or object that is similar in size or a rolled up pair of socks. You will also need a cricket, rounders or baseball bat. Or a tennis racket. 

Teaching points for hitting a ball with a bat or racket:

  1. Keep your eye on the ball at all times.
  2.  Hold your bat/racket in one hand and keep it still.
  3.  As the ball comes towards you swing the bat/racket and strike the ball. 

Activity-With a partner/parent/carer number yourselves 1 & 2. Partner 1is the bowler and throws an underarm throw to partner 2's bat/racket. Partner 2 is the batter and hits the ball using power. Switch roles throughout.

Competiton-To make this game more competetive set our markers around your garden or use objects in your garden as targets that are worth points e.g fence=2 points, tree=3 points, paddling pool=5 points. The partner with the most points after 5 hits wins.
