Sports Day Week!

Good morning everyone,

Hope you have all been enjoying the lovely warm weather we are having and are staying safe! 🙂

Unfortunately due to recent events we have missed one of our favourite days of the year – sports day! I know many of our pupils and staff look forward to it every year, so instead we are going to have an entire sports week, and theme our PE grids around it!

The P1-2 grid is full of family fun sports day activities!

Whereas the P3-4 and P5-7 grids have beat the teacher challenges with some familiar faces to compete against!

Gross Motor Skills 

Gross motor skills are the big movements that
use the large muscles in the body. These
movements include rolling over, sitting, running,
sidesteps and jumping.

Fine Motor Skills

Fine motor skills are small movements that use
the small muscles of the fingers, toes and
wrists. These small movements include picking up small
objects, tying shoe laces and holding a spoon.

New PE Grids

Every Monday a new PE grid will be posted onto your google classrooms. There will be a grid for P1-2, P3-4 and P5-7. These grids have a number of tasks for you to try each week. However it is important to remember we do not expect you to complete all of the tasks but to at least try one or two, at a time that suits you throughout the week.

Each week the grids will focus on a different Significant Aspect of Learning (SAL). This week we will be focusing on one of the Physical Competences:

Coordination & Fluency.
