Our 'Us Kids Can' Club has gone from strength to strength. This week we welcomed Councillor Jane Evison to school as she was interested to see how the initiative was having an impact in East Riding schools. Paul Peacock, who coordinates the programme, and Fiona Thompson (Senior Play and Community Engagement Officer) joined our fabulous coaches; Dominic, Hope and Jenna, to play energenic games and learn about the hidden sugar in some of the foods we eat. The results have made us all rethink our diets.
Some of our Y5 and Y6 pupils welcomed Mrs Fitzpatrick from Longcroft School on Friday 20th October to learn new skills as Play Leaders. They looked at the core elements of participation, play area, communication, enjoyment and resources. Challenged to create new games and practices from limited apparatus, the pupils explained and demonstrated their ideas. We are all looking forward to the new team taking charge of lunchtime activities soon.
The annual badminton tournament was held at Longcroft School on Tuesday 17th October. Mrs Trueman took a team of Y5/6 children, most of whom had never played badminton in a competition before. Their skill improved throughout the evening and they managed to beat two other teams from much larger schools. The confidence which developed and the enjoyment expressed were as rewarding as any trophy! A huge well done to the team and great thanks to our supportive parents.
Pupils from years 3 and 4 were a credit to Lockington as they took part in the Multiskills afternoon at Longcroft School on Tuesday 3rd October. Mrs Robinson and Mrs Vandepeear were incredibly proud as they led the children through football, netball and dodgeball skills. Super work, guys!
On Tuesday 26th September, after a busy class visit, twelve KS2 children still found the energy to run in the area cross country competition at Longcroft School. The event, led by Mrs Fitzpatrick, was a great success. All our runners made it home with a particularly impressive run by the girls in the Y3/4 race who took 5th and 6th place! Our overall team result was 5th out of 7 teams; a tremendous success from the smallest school participating.
We welcomed James from Harry Sheader Sports to our school to take both classes for a demonstration gymnastics session. Improvement was made within this time as everyone worked on their rolls. James will be returning in the spring term to host a new after school club.
What an amazing evening we had at the Annual Sports Partnership awards! Our little school was in the spotlight with some fabulous nominations which recognised sporting achievement and participation. The guest speaker was British volleyball player, Ben Pipes. He was truly inspiring. Joe was even lucky enough to help him act out one of his best sporting memories on stage.
Our successes were;
Jasper - winner of the School Sport Partnership School Games Primary Oath Competition
Joe - 1st place in the category of Outstanding Individual Performance in Physical Education
Dalton - runner up in the category of Outstanding Individual Performance in Sport
Henry - runner up in the category of Support in a Voluntary Leadership Role
Over 15% of our KS2!
Once again the School Games Crew organised a great afternoon of competitive sport with the intra school rounders tournament. The winning team this time was Green. Well done guys!
It was brilliant to introduce a new sport to Lockington; table tennis. The School Games Crew organised an intra school tournament to make use of our new facility.
The sun shone on our annual School Games Day. After an opening ceremony in which Jasper read his winning School Games Oath, everyone was raring to go. We took part in multi-sport activities and traditional races, encouraged by our families and friends. There was even a chance for some of our younger siblings to join in the fun.
Congratulations to the victors; Yellow Team!
