U-KS2 Summer House Rounders 2021

On Thursday 22st July, Year 5 and 6 participated in Rounders house matches. Sadly, we were still unable to mix with all the juniors but we still made the most of it! It was the first opportunity for the Sports Leaders to umpire and support other year groups which was lovely.  As well as officiating, they scored, encouraged and helped motivate the younger children.

1st Drungewick  9 points

2rd Southlands 7 points

3rd Brewhurst 5 points

4th Malham 3 points 

Although Malham lost the house matches, we were really impressed with the performance from Gabriella (for supporting her team and for batting), Jayden (for his sportsmanship) and Kezia (for her fabulous bowling). For Brewhurst, the players that really stood out were: Lacy for encouragement, Danny for an overall great performance and Hannah for having a go even though she wasn’t feeling her best! In second place was Southlands with their star players being: Chloe as a good back stop, Daniel for being an amazing sportsman and Ben as he concentrated and kept his team powered up and enthusiastic. For the overall winners and sporting stars, Drungewick chose Isabella for the best batting, Charlie for sportsmanship and lastly….. Cayden for a super enthusiastic mind-set! 

Everybody did amazingly and had a lovely morning in the warm weather!

Year 6 Fun Day 2021

On Thursday 8th July, Year 6 had a Fun Day at school. Premier Education came in to run a range of sport activities throughout the day. We played: Table Tennis, Tennis, Dodgeball, Handball and Rounders. Sadly, the weather was not kind to us but a lovely day was had by all. To see more, please watch our video on the Sports Page of the school website.

Loxwood School Sports Day 2021
 
What a wonderful week we have had for our Sports Days. Although we had to make adjustments for COVID which included parents being unable to come and support, all the children were able to participate in an action-packed day. These were spread across the week to ensure each bubble had a day Infants (Tuesday 15th), U-KS2 (Wednesday 16th) and L-KS2 (Thursday 17th). 
 
Premier Education came in to run a range of new, exciting (COVID friendly) activities for part of the day including archery, tri-golf, Ultimate Frisbee and football darts. We then held a mixture of races which included sprints, long distance, relays and even a water race in Year 5 and 6. 
 
We are in the process of putting together some videos to share with you so please keep a look out for more information.

Year 6 Residential
 
Marchants Hill 2021
 
After having to postpone the residential trip to Marchants Hill in September, we were fortunate enough to be given another date. The children took part in a range of outdoor and adventurous activities both individually and within a team including: Zip Wire, Trapeze, Survivor, Raft Building, Sensory Trail, Orienteering, Challenge Course, Jacob's Ladder, Archery, Abseiling, Low Level Ropes Course, Climbing and Problem Solving.
They enjoyed communicating, collaborating and competing with each other while being able to compare their performances with previous ones and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best.
 

Chance to Shine Cricket Taster Day

On Tuesday 18th May we had a fantastic coach called Lara (from Chance to Shine) who came to run a cricket taster day for Year 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.  Chance to Shine is a national charity that aims to give all children the opportunity to play, learn and develop through cricket. They work with 39 County Cricket Boards across England and Wales to send specialist coaches into schools to provide children with a brilliant first experience of cricket. The aim of the day was to inspire and enthuse the children. Not only did it introduce the sport but it focused on the values of the game too.

 

“I really enjoyed playing cricket with Lara. With Mr Green we have been playing diamond cricket so it was quite similar but I enjoyed running between the stumps.” (Tate, Year 5).

 

“I found the cricket session fun. When I got home, I asked Mum if I could join the Loxwood Cricket Club.” (Libby, Year 3).    

 

U-KS2 Autumn House Hockey

After our original date was postponed due to the weather, we were finally able to play the U-KS2 House Hockey matches on Wednesday 17th March.

This couldn’t take the usual format due to COVID restrictions but nevertheless a lovely afternoon was had by all Year 5 and 6 children who were able to represent their house while demonstrating some of the skills they have learnt during their PE lessons with Mr Green.

This was also the first opportunity of the year to fully utilise our new House Captains and Sports Leaders. The House Captains managed their teams, ensuring all children got to play an even number of games. The Sports Leaders worked really hard, taking on many roles including time keeping, scoring and referring the games. 

We played this as a mixed 5-a-side round robin tournament meaning each team played everyone.

Mr Green’s PE
 
 27th January 2021

Here is a new Flat Target Accuracy challenge for this week. You need to throw your object and get it to land on the flat target. 
  • Challenge 1 - Can you hit the target on the first bounce?
  • Challenge 2 - Can you get the object to stay on the target?
To stay on the target, you will need to think about the height, weight and timing of your release.
 
Below is a video of Mr Green introducing the activity with some help from children at home. 
 
I will need three new volunteers for next week. If you think that could be you, email year6@loxwoodschool.com!

13th January 2021

Here is a new sock challenge for you. While standing on one leg, place a sock on each of the targets. Next, without putting your foot back down, collect each sock one by one. See if you can keep your balance while you complete the whole activity. How long did it take you to do it? Can you improve your time?
 
Be sure to reach down low and carefully place the socks on the target (without throwing them). 
 
To make the activity harder, you can increase the number of targets. 
 
Below is a video of Mr Green introducing the activity with some help from infant and junior children. Good luck!

13th-27th November 2020


We have selected three little challenges that you can complete at home in isolation. They need minimal resources and space. Each activity only takes 30 seconds but we would like to see some self-competition throughout the week. How much can you improve your score by? We will be meeting with Mr Green next week so you can let him know how you have been getting on.

These activities are the same for all four junior classes. You may want to think about how you can make them easier or harder. For example you could change the distance or the size of the object you are throwing.
 

Activity 1 

Speed Bounce 

How many times can you bounce from side to side (2 footed) over your sock? 

Time 

30 seconds 

Equipment 

A sock, a stop watch

Sports Leaders
In order to support and select our Sports Leaders, Mr Green had the Year 6s on Monday 14th September 2020 for a training day. They were encouraged to think about the values needed to make a good leader; plan and deliver sports activities to other children. It was an incredibly enjoyable and productive day.
 
Well done to Danny, Tyler, Ben, Timothy, Ella, and Mary who have all been selected. 
 
Throughout the year they will have to officiate, coach, and lead activities. They will also help organise intra-school competitions and school sport opportunities.
