Parent Open Afternoon has changed from Monday 1st July to Monday 8th July, this is due to Active Week

Wk ending 18th October 2018

What a super activity week Pentire class have had! The children participated in a range of sports activities with plenty of perseverance and enjoyment on show. We began the week by welcoming Melissa Reid, a GB athlete, to our school to launch the activity week. The children were super listeners and asked great questions while listening to Melissa speak about what it takes to be an athlete. Over the next few days, Pentire participated in a range of exciting activities as shown below.

 

Monday

We had a tri golf session led by one of the sports coaches. We learnt how to aim at a variety of targets, judging the distance and power required when putting. It was brilliant to see the perseverance, patience and improvements the children made as the session progressed.

Wednesday

Pentire began the day by participating in a sugar smart workshop. We learnt about the sugar content in a wide variety of food. The children had to order and compare the foods based on sugar content. Well done to the whole class for superb participation and learning. After this, we took part in an archery session led by a coach. The children learnt how to aim and fire at a target using the correct technique.

Thursday

Rounding off our activity week was a wall climbing challenge. We had to take turns attempting to climb to the top of the wall and reach the toy at the top. Once the children had reached the top, they had to abseil back down the wall. It was an absolute pleasure to witness the bravery and compassion on show from the children in Pentire. Everyone conquered their fears by having a go and the encouragement being given to others while they were climbing was wonderful to hear! What an amazing way to finish our activity week and a huge well done to everyone in Pentire class for the whole week.
