BSP Cross Country 5th November
It was a chilly , dark early evening when 27 KS2 children competed against 8 other schools within the Bury Schools Partnership on a mile and a half course around the grounds of King Edwards Secondary School.
The children were exceptional, not only with their running skills but behaviour and team man ship resulting in a fabulous result.
The races were split into Yr 3/4 and Yr 5/6.
Both of the races were well represented with an average of 70/80 competitors in each race.
I'm very excited to report that both age groups came 2nd overall
Well done Ickworth Park Primary.
The children in Keystage 2 are all working on stamina and agility.
They all run at least 3 laps of the field before taking part in a circuit training session. In each session the children work in pairs, taking it in turns do the station they are at for 30 seconds while their partner counts how many reps they do. By working in pairs it encourages healthy competition.
To start off with children in Elm class master movement so for their first PE lesson they played a mixture of jumping through the hoops and the old playtime favourite of Rock, paper, scissors. This helps them develop team building skills, hand eye coordination and physical movement all in one fun filled game.
