Nursery had a lovely morning taking part in different sports activities for Sports Relief. They finished the lesson with some relaxing yoga in the classroom! They used up lots of energy and were tired out when leaving! Da iawn pawb.
Congratulations to Year 5 who finished top of the daily leaderboard in Swansea’s Sumdog competition!! We finished 7th overall in the county for the week! We had two pupils who finished 3rd and 5th across the whole of Swansea also! Well done Holly and Ben! The children have all been given certificates to mark their achievements. Sumdog is available for them to play online at home to help develop their mental maths skills in a fun, interactive way!
What an exhausting day! We have had a fantastic time celebrating Sport Relief. We have taken part in Hockey, Netball, Football, CrossFit,and a 1 mile run around the village. We also met Ozzy the Osprey and Ospreys superstar Keelan Giles! The children had great fun and particpated in all activities whole heartedly! I imagine there will be some tired legs and a few lay ins tomorrow morning! Have a great weekend.
Year 1 have had a busy day today for Sportrelief. They loved using the balance bikes this morning and it was great to see some of them gain in confidence as they practised. Then, we joined Year 2 and the children completed various different challenges, which also helped develop numeracy skills as they timed themselves doing different exercises.
This afternoon, the children did a couple of laps around the village. They were amazing and I am so proud of how well they did. Ardderchog!!
Year 2 have had lots of fun today taking part in our Sports Relief activities. They began by participating in Yoga sessions in class. Ozzy Osprey visited the children at playtime to show his support. The children then moved outside to complete independent timed challenges, where they used the skills that they have been working on in PE lessons. After lunch it was time for the sponsored run around the village. The children did very well and it was lovely to see the junior pupils cheering them on! Lots of fun was had by all whilst raising money for a very worthwhile cause.
Key stage 2 have had a fantastic morning participating in a rotation of activities. These included netball, hockey, hoolahooping and CrossFit. The children were able to practise a variety of skills and they all thoroughly enjoyed. A huge thank you to Owen from CrossFit and Gavin from Sports Development Swansea.
Sports relief this morning was a hit. Ozzie Osprey also got stuck in with the sports this morning. The teachers highlight of the day however was winning 4-1 to the pupils… not that we were extremely competative at all!
Reception have been hard at it using up their energy, concentration and balance to complete some laps on the balance – bikes.
Reception are off to a good start! We have begun our sporty day with some yoga… we are now off to practise our balance on special bikes! Continue reading
Year 6 have been learning about budgeting this week. They understood that in order to run a successful business, good budgeting is essential. They were given a challenge, in groups, to budget the running of a home. Each group was given forty dried peas to begin! They were told that the peas were worth £2000 and had to work out how much one would be. They then had to choose how to spend their peas from a variety of scenarios, not forgetting to pay tax! We discussed the difference between ‘needs’ and ‘wants’. The children were very sensible, although choosing a few luxuries! We were pleased to find out that each group was left with at least £400!
