Well done to Amelia in Bluebirds class for successfully taking part in the West Midlands Team Floor & Vault Championships – receiving a gold medal.
All the teachers and staff are so proud of your achievement.
Bluebirds are really enjoying their Wednesday morning swimming lessons at the fantastic University of Birmingham swimming pool.
Over the next six weeks, children will participate in activities and games to build water confidence besides being taught the correct swimming strokes. Obviously, we are unable to take photos but rest assured, the children are having fun and more importantly, are learning a valuable skill, which is part of the National Curriculum.
Amber – It’s good as the water is the right temperature.
Ruby L – Its great that we can all learn to swim.
Kennie – It’s exciting to do and helpful to be close by so we can go.
Sophie – Helpfully, they provide arm bands and teach you new strokes.
Rubi D – I want to learn something new every week.
Melissa – Its a fantastic opportunity. We are lucky to go.
Bluebirds in PE today learned how to warm up and stretch properly. The children learned that warming is an important part before exercising. ‘It helps the muscles to function better’ Kyron. Stretching the muscle will help the muscle not to tear. They had several obstacles where the children could test their abilities and some hidden challenges.
In PE, Bluebirds had a great lesson with the different obstacles Mr Altariva had set up. They, then learned the importance of warming up and stretching their muscles before physical activities and had some exciting challenges throughout.
In PE today, Year 3 developed their control and coordination by playing basketball. It was as much as about teamwork as it was about coordinating themselves around the court and developing their ball control.
In PE, Bluebirds class learnt to develop their coordination skills by going through a series of obstacles laid out by Mr Altariva. They all did wonderfully well at climbing and jumping and all tried effortlessly at the challenges through out the lesson. A brilliant lesson and good coordination skills.
