Virtual After School Club
The Youth Sport Trust have taken the step to deliver a free virtual after school club as part of a national response to the second lockdown. The 30-minute club will take place at 5pm each weekday and be led by a different member of the YST’s athlete mentor network.
Aimed mainly at primary-aged children, a different theme has been assigned for each day of the club – Adventure Monday, Tuesday Play, Wild Wednesday, Thinking Thursday and Fun Friday. The YST hope that this will provide support, capacity and inspiration to sit alongside the other great work and offers that are available for schools and children and young people to engage in.
Here is the link for any of those who want to join in –
The MUGA (Multi Use Games Area)
Everyone at St Marys are extremely excited with the progress of the MUGA and cannot wait for this to be completed. The opportunities it will bring in the community are endless, we are looking forward to the time when it is up and running!
- During PE, this half term KS2 are enjoying their hockey lessons. They have been improving and learning new skills during their lessons with Mr Jones. During hockey this half-term pupils will learn about the key skills needed to succeed which include: body positions and how to hold/use the hockey stick correctly, safety of hockey, movement with the ball, controlling the ball, supporting teammates, passing/shooting techniques, passing during game scenarios, attacking and defending games.
In their sessions the children are evaluating their performance and discussing how they could improve and develop their skills further.
- During this half term KS1 are working on FUNdamentals (running& jumping).
In their lessons of FUNdamentals, Year 1/2 are working on running/moving in different ways and directions for short or long distances whilst also learning how to jump and land in a controlled manner for short or longer distances. This is being done through lots of fun playground games and athletic style competitions.
- Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) are continuing to enjoy their multi-sports, they are beginning to learn key skills for sports whilst working on their gross and fine motor skills to help develop their body movements and control.
