This week, to celebrate national school sports week, the children from every class took part in an activity they wouldn't have normally taken part in. The idea was to give each child the chance to try a sport or activity they haven't tried before or that is a bit different from normal. Year 6 spent a day at Magic Wood Climbing centre traversing rock faces and conquering overhangs. Year 5 walked to the top school for a morning of Basketball coaching, something we hope to continue next year with the help of the Plymouth Raiders. Year 4 also took advantage of the facilities at the top school and practised their climbing abilities on the climbing wall. Thank you to the staff at the top school for helping us with these activities. The children from the year 3 and year3/4 classes were lucky enough to try some fencing in our school hall followed by new game called Crazy Catch.
KS1 were not left out and the year 1 and year 1/2 classes took a lesson in orienteering, or exploring as we liked to call it. They were keen explorers by the end and able to follow simple maps to find clues. The youngest children in the school were able to take part in a round robin of activities to test their co-ordination, organisation and teamwork. They loved the mini-assault course and the football dribble. Year 2 took an afternoon out of class to take part in a street dance lesson taken by Looe residents ad Encore dancers Tom Dunn and Mollie Griffiths. The children have loved trying new things and we hope that this week will be something that we can provide every year.
