Find out about all the activities our pupils do to keep fit, build skills, grow in confidence, have fun and learn to be good sports.
Christmas Fun Run #1
On a very chilly day in December, children ran around a muddy field to complete the Santa Fun Run organised by our SSP. Many thanks to them for bringing Lapland to Newton Hall.
Hoopstarz Day 2021
The whole school took turns to be active with Hoopstarz. From Reception to Year 2 everyone had a really good go and amazingly managed to keep their hoop going … or very nearly. We learned how to improve our hula-hooping, to skip with a hoop, even build an igloo with our hoops. We enjoy hula-hooping so much we have nagged the teachers to let us have them at playtimes.
Here are a few pictures from Year 1.
Sports Day 2021
Sadly our parents weren’t allowed to join us for Sports Day this year but the good news was it stayed fine and we enjoyed it. Reverting to old time running races, as again we couldn’t share equipment for obstacle courses and the like, it wasn’t always the fastest runners that came in first. Various techniques came to the fore when competing in the egg and spoon, the sack (pillowcase) race and the three legged races. Enjoy our pictures…
Skipping with Gail
Gail the skipping coach came to visit our school to see how we got on with Skip into Spring. Gail was very impressed with our progress and instead of teaching us to skip, she was able to show us tips and tricks to improve and make our skipping more impressive. At one point, Gail couldn’t believe she was showing us one of the skipping steps to try – usually reserved for year 4 pupils! As always, we enjoyed our skipping day with Gail and hope she comes back again and again and again. Thank you, Gail.
