L-KS2 Multi Skills at The Weald

Rowan Class had a brilliant time on Wednesday (12th October) taking part in a L-KS2 Multi-Skills festival organised by The Weald School. This was a fantastic opportunity which allowed all the children to get involved in various sporting activities in a fun and competitive way, against six other locality primary schools. They participated in relay type activities that aimed to improve agility, throwing and jumping etc. Mrs Calvert was impressed with the entire class who represented our school superbly, demonstrating some of our school values: collaboration, kindness and resilience! Mr Meaney even complimented us for our jumping skills!  Thank you to everyone who helped at this event.

Talented Athletes Launch Event at The Weald

On Wednesday 5th October, some of our Year 5 and 6 children attended a Talented Athletes Launch Event at The Weald which was hosted by Mr Meaney. This is the first of three events they will attend throughout the year.  The children participated in activities including: Orienteering, SAQ (Speed Agility and Quickness), Fitness and Ball Skills.  

"I thought it was a really fun day as we did lots of different skills. It was good to mix with other schools too." (Libby, Year 5)

"This was my first time representing Loxwood and I really enjoyed it. We did activities to help us improve our speed. It was good to spend the day at The Weald and get to know it better." (Gideon, Year 6)

Mr Green Wednesdays 
We are very pleased to have Mr Green Wednesdays back this year. Each class will get a PE session with Mr Green every half term. Sadly, the weather has been against us today but rain doesn't stop play at Loxwood! This half term the juniors are focusing of Football while the infants are improving their fundamental movements.
