Sacred Heart Multi Skills Festival April 25th 2013
Although the day looked fairly grey and the rain threatened, the Year 1 Multi skills festival was well underway.
Twelve, Year 6 PE leaders designed the activities; wrote lesson plans; thought hard about how to differentiate activities to suit the needs of the children, and ran their activity with proud precision. Of course, they needed another pair of hands and so persuaded their friends to help out!
8 activities were set up and between the four schools that entered, a total of 74 excited Year One children began their round- robin multi skills experience.
Skills included: a gruelling sack race; the egg and spoon dash; an obstacle course with space hopping; a wet and wonderful water pass; basketball shooting, aiming for the targets and throwing; penalty shoot-out and a rather fast speed bounce.
All in all, the children competed in groups and all enjoyed their time. All scores came in and the winning teams were announced and presented certificates.
A huge thank you to all of the Year 6 PE leaders and helpers, staff and of course the children who entered.
Let’s hope the sun shines next year….
