Summer Sports at Millfield

 

Throughout the Summer term at Millfield, the children have experienced different sports within their class and year group bubbles.

 

Across the school, classes have been participating in athletics lessons. They have been competing in races such as hurdles, relays and flat races, as well as competing in other fun field events in preparation for sports day. All children have had the opportunity of developing different skills.

 

Each year group had a designated ‘Sports Morning’ and competed in their house colours against each other. All the activities the children took part in were scored. The children had four different activities to take part in where they would try to score as many points for their house colours as possible. The four activities were:

  1. Passing a football through a hoop – One point scored each time a ball passed through the hoop.
  2. Beanbag throw – Each child threw three beanbags, the points were scored depending in which hoop the beanbag landed in.
  3. Egg and spoon – Each child earned a point every time they walked from one end of the track to the other and passed it to their teammate without the egg falling off the spoon.
  4. Relay changeover – Children ran the baton to one end of the track and passed it to the next person. Children earned a point for every successful changeover.

 

Each house worked for 8 minutes per activity before switching to the next activity. Once all four activities were completed children competed in their track events These consisted of three races.

  1. Flat sprint race
  2. Hurdle race
  3. Teamed relay

 

Well done to all the children who took part in their ‘Sporting Morning’. The children experienced working in a competitive team environment where they competed against other house colours. Everyone did their absolute best and we are very proud of them all!

Year 3 children have had the experience of being taught cricket lessons with a cricket coach through the 'Sports Partnership'. They were able take part in different sessions, game scenarios and match play. The children really enjoyed the sessions.

 

Year 4 children took part in Inter School events. These included 'Rapid Fire' where children were split into teams and competed in a round robin competition. Children also took part in a pentathlon competition. The children had to complete five activities; these included shuttle runs, high jump, long jump, speed bounce and how far you can pass a ball using the chest pass technique. The scores for the children were recorded and these were submitted to the Sports Partnership. We are awaiting results.

Spring Term 2021 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.

 

EYFS

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.

 

KS1

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.

 

KS2

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.

Virtual Events

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.
