All year groups have been busy with sporting activities during our annual Sports Fortnight.
The week started off with Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children enjoying a Karate Taster Session with Matthew from TKF. They learnt some of the basic rules and moves.
The week continued with Year 1 and 2 children taking part in a lively and fast moving Zumba lesson. All the children thoroughly enjoyed joining in with this activity and getting their heart beats racing through dance exercise.
Mr Mann from the Dereham and West Norwich School Sports Partnership came to give Year 1 and Year 2 children a workshop on tag rugby skills.
Preschool Team Day
The local preschools along with the children from our Nursery had their own Team Day. The children got to try lots of new activities with their grown-ups.
Our Team Day which had been postponed from the previous week due to bad weather was able to take place and we were very fortunate to have the Sports Leaders from Northgate High School to help run the activities. All the children got split into teams and had a go at 20 different multi skill activities.
Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children had the opportunity to try the sport of cheerleading with Miss Coombes. They watched part of a cheerleading routine, got to try some of the jumps and even had a go at stunting in groups.
A busy day to end our fortnight saw Reception and Year 1 children involved in a gymnastics session with coaches from Easton Gymnastics Club. The children played a fun warm up game, then practised and learnt the names for some gymnastic moves and finally had a go at some balancing along the benches and performing a jump at the end.
Year 1 and 2 children also had an Athletics Skills workshop with children from Neatherd High School. The children did a variety of activities to help them with the skills of running, jumping and throwing.
What a fantastic couple of weeks!
