We have been practising our use of space in football and scoring points for stringing together a set number of passes without being intercepted. We also practised our close ball control using the inside and the outside of our feet.
What a busy weekend the Kestrels have had! All sorts have happened, and we have medals too!
Paige achieved a gold medal for her Solo Modern Dance.
Jessica achieved three amazing shields for her tap, ballet and freestyle dance.
Fantastic effort girls. We are all super proud of you both. You show great commitment to your activities and reap the rewards.
Year 5 had their first PE session today. They impressed Mr Gill with their listening skills, organisation and teamwork. They managed to play on 4 separate pitches and rotate their groups to play each other. Well done Year 5.
Year 5 have had their second lesson in how to play cricket today. They got warmed up well and focused on their batting skills. The two teams ‘England’ and ‘Sri Lanka’ are fast becoming competitive in their quest to win the competition!
Mark the cricket coach came to work with year 5 to teach them how to play cricket. They warmed up and practised their catching and batting skills. They really enjoyed the first session and are looking forward to next week already!
Year 5 Kestrels had some more cricket training this morning.
It was another chance to put their bowling and batting skills in to practice. More and more skills are being built on and put in o the test when the matches are on.
Well done Year 5. Lots of concentration and listening skills were needed, great practice for training in the afternoon.
In cricket today, Cara, Jamie and Mohammed worked really well as a team and helped each other throughout the session. For that they have all received a certificate for showing one of our behaviours for learning.
Year 5 Kestrels had their second session of cricket coaching today. They started off with a warm-up learning how to effectively carry a cricket bat whilst running, this is by carrying it and rocking it like it is a baby.
They then practised hitting a cricket ball and catching a cricket ball in their teams, rotating which role they were doing.
A game of cricket then gave the Kestrels a real chance to show off their skills! I think we are going to have some fantastic cricket players in Year 5 Kesterels!
