Spring Term Sports at Millfield
It has been a very different Spring term for all children at Millfield due to COVID-19. However, this hasn’t stopped all children working as hard as ever within their PE lessons whether they were in school or learning from home.
During the lockdown period, Mr Rome produced home PE lessons for each class within the school, as well as a year group challenge each week. There were also daily whole school video workouts that could be completed at any time of the day! Feedback from families proved that children enjoyed taking part with the exercise set by Mr Rome.
Over the Spring Term our Early Years children have been working on different yoga stretches, balances and basic throwing and catching skills. Children have had the opportunity of fundamental team building activities which include parachute games, as well as developing throwing and catching skills.
Mr Rome’s PE lessons consisted of circuit training activities, looking to build on stamina, balance and agility. These exercises included squats, star jumps and sit ups. Children also developed their throwing and catching skills; whilst developing these skills the children played a variety of different games which also included team building activities. These activities supported children with gaining an understanding of how to become a good team player.
The children have been taking part in different exercises through circuit training. The aim for the KS2 children was to increase strength, stamina and coordination skills. Exercises have included press ups, sit ups, squat jumps and planks. The children enjoyed participating in team building dodgeball games, each lesson had a different focus with rules specific to each game. Year 3 children have also been working on learning all about Lacrosse. during the last three weeks of term, Mr Rome has given the children the opportunity to take part in a number of different orienteering activities. These skills include following clues to take them to each answer, or reading a map from a birds-eye view and finally completing different faces with equipment in the order given.
Despite the lockdown, our KS2 children have still had opportunities of virtual events. The year 4 children had a basketball event where they had to participate in a number of different skills working on coordination, agility and speed. Children attending the onsite provision took part in different multi-skills activities.
We are looking forward to a Summer Term full of more sporting opportunities for our children at Millfield.
