Whole School Multi-skills Festival at Tarka Tennis, 11th July 2018
We spent a fantastic morning at Tarka Tennis developing our teamwork, coordination and racket skills. The whole visit was funded using our PE Premium. The children really enjoyed the chance to experience this fantastic sporting facility. They completed 6 different activity stations. At the end of the morning each child received a certificate with a token for a free tennis lesson at Tarka. Look out Andy Murray!
Tennis with the LTA and Tarka Tennis, 19th April 2018
We were lucky enough to have a visit from Phil Leighton from the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) and Hannah from Tarka Tennis. Each class had a free 30 minute coaching session with Phil and Hannah after which all the children were invited to free taster sessions at Tarka Tennis. The morning in school was a great success and it was fantastic to hear that so many children from Pilton Infants attended the taster sessions at Tarka Tennis.
Sport for Champions fundraising with Rob Mitchell, 18th January 2018
Sport for Champions is a company which works to raise money to support UK athletes train and compete nationally and internationally. We were lucky enough to spend the morning with GB high jumper Rob Mitchell. During the morning, every child in school took part in a short but intense fitness workout (for which they had been collecting sponsorship) as well as having an inspiring and very interesting assembly with Rob. The children found out how Rob discovered his ability to jump, how he trains and eats to stay in peak physical condition and about some of his proudest moments and achievements. Rob talked to the children about the importance of eating healthily, keeping active and having dreams and goals to aspire to. Children received prizes for raising money and pictured with Rob are the 13 biggest fundraisers in the school. The children raised a staggering £1200 of which the school keep £465. The remaining money goes to Sport for Champions and to support their athletes like Rob. A huge thank you to all those who donated and well done to the children for their fantastic efforts.
Good luck in your next competition Rob!
Whole School Football Festival, 27th November 2017
We had a fantastic day of focused learning. Every class had a session with Ross from The Goal Getters developing their skills of passing, dribbling, shooting, co-ordination and teamwork through fun games and activities.
In classes, children thought about why footballers are good learners and how this could be similar to us as learners in school. The children also investigated doubling in maths. If we knew the number of players on one team, we could double that number to find the total number of players in the game because we know that football is played by two equal sized teams.
What was the best thing about the football festival?
"Teamwork" (Isabelle, Year 1)
"I loved the rocket launcher because it was hard but I managed in the end." (Isla, Year 2)
"The teamwork activity - carrying the ball between our tummies." (Evie, Year 2)
"Getting to shoot at the goal!" (Joe, Year 2)
What did you learn during the football festival?
"We learned to aim at the goal and this helped me score!" (Kian, Year 2)
"Nobody gave up, we kept on trying and trying and trying." (Evie, Year 2)
"I learned that you need to kick the ball gently to control it in and out of the cones." (Ryan, Year 2)
"I learned that football players play in two equal teams." (Alex, Year 2)
