York School Sports Network Speed Bounce Challenge

We have been asked to step up for a Challenge! We are looking for pupils to take part in a virtual competition. For this challenge, you will need a towel, balance, coordination and stamina!

Place a rolled up towel on the floor or row of cones. Stand feet together with the towel/cones next to the outside of one of your feet. Jump sideways over the towel/ cones making sure your feet stay together finishing with the cone on the outside of the opposite foot. Repeat back and too as fast as you can in 20 seconds.

Each bounce equals 1 point.

Try as many times as you like, but your score will start to reduce if you get too tired. Once finished, go online to register your best score. This way, you can help our school to win the Speed Bounce Challenge!

Either login to www.koboca.co.uk and use the username and password, or use the URL, that were in the letter sent out to families.

Big Pedal

Click to visit the Big Pedal website

This spring our school will be taking part in Big Pedal. This is a national event designed to encourage parents and children to cycle, scoot or walk to school. The event will begin Monday 25th March and end on Friday 5th April. For those that have a distance to travel, please remember that if you park a short way from school and walk, it counts too!

Learning about Judo

The children enjoyed a visit from a Judo Instructor who demonstrated the modern Japanese martial art, which is designed to train both body and mind. Children learnt that Judo, meaning ‘gentle way’, is an alternative method of enjoying exercise and keeping fit.

Rapid Fire Cricket Competition

8 children in Class 2 took part in a Rapid Fire Cricket Competition at Archbishop Holgate’s School on Wednesday. At the event, which was organised by Yorkshire Cricket, they enjoyed playing friendly and fun matches against several other schools from the area. Well done to all the children that took part in this sporting event.

Year 2 Skipping Festival

Our Year 2 children are invited to take part in a skipping festival to be held at Fulford School in July (details to follow). They are currently receiving training so that they are competent skippers. There are skipping ropes for sale in the office, priced at £5.00, if you want to skip at home!

Physical Education Questionnaire

As part of our physical education provision, we would like to hear your opinions on the after school activities that are currently on offer, as well as about your child’s swimming experience. This will enable us to cater for children’s interests in the future, and to fulfil our statutory requirement to publish our swimming statistics.

Your answers will remain anonymous: all we ask is that you specify which Key Stage your child is currently in.

The questionnaire can be found here, and if you encounter any issues please contact Miss Shepherd in the school office.
