Key Stage 2 pupils shine in PE workshop!

8 children were recently selected to take part in the Key Stage 2 gifted and talented workshop at Kearsley Academy.

The children have all shown excellent ability in curriculum PE lessons and whilst competing in school events.  This workshop provided them with the opportunity to apply their skills in new areas of PE, such as trampolining, table tennis and cardio fitness testing. 

It was a challenging workshop and the children applied themselves fantastically well and showed lots of natural ability in each of the tasks.

Paralympic Sprinter Lee Whiteley Visit

Today children from all classes took part in a fitness challenge with Paralympic 100 and 200m sprinter Lee Whiteley.  The children completed four challenging exercises in a ‘circuit style’ training session and received some expert coaching along the way.  Following this, Lee hosted an assembly where he told us his inspirational story of how he became the fastest Paralypian in Britain and second fastest in the world!  The children had a fantastic day and were amazed by Lee’s story.  You can see some of the photos below:

 

KS2 Handball Club

This half term, children from Key Stage 2 have been receiving more expert coaching from Kearsley Academy in an after school ‘handball’ club. This is a new sport for St Peter’s Primary school, but the children have responded well and are showing some excellent skills already.  You can enjoy the pictures of KS2 learning how to play below!
