Home School PE

By Uncategorized

Our upper prep pupils who are studying from home were set a new task. Mrs Smith found a Disney dance class to follow online. Once they had completed the workout the task was extended to choreograph their own dance, with the option of dressing as their favourite character and the use of props was encouraged.

Mrs Smith was astounded by the ideas and the work submitted by our pupils. Take a look at Year 6 pupil Imogen’s excellent depiction of Snow White. A fantastic performance that brings the Snow White story to life. Excellent wardrobe choice, choreography and use of the bird as a prop.

Imogen was awarded a performance star for her excellent choreography and a critical thinking star for her innovative application of a prop. Well done Imogen! You worked really hard on this!

PE – Try Something New!

By Uncategorized

This half term both our prep and senior school PE lessons have been based on trying something new! Each and every lesson both in school and at home school pupils have been encouraged to try new activities.

These have included Pi-yo training, yoga, viral TIKTOK fitness challenges, breathing exercise, mindfulness and dance choreography. Our pupils even designed their own new games that had to include: rules, a scoring system and an outcome.

Mrs Smith has received lots of videos and videos of pupils taking part from home and awarded these with stars and chocolate!

Over the last week in school, pupils from Years 3-11 have taken part in Volleyball lessons. This is a new activity that all have had great fun learning. So much so our classes have been seen out during break time refining their skills!
