In P.E. this term, Year 5 are looking at Athletics, in particular the Standing Long Jump and Triple Jump.  They are working on how to improve and develop their jumping techniques to use an explosive move when attempting one of these jumps.  The children worked in groups and completed a carousel of activities which included Hop Scotch, Speed Bounce (2 feet), Hopping Speed Bounce and the Standing Long Jump.



Today 10 Year 5 children were very lucky as they were specially chosen to take part in a free Hockey Masterclass from Premier Sport to prepare them for a hockey competition after the half term. The children took part in skills lessons learning how to: hold the hockey stick correctly, dribble a ball in between cones, move with the ball quickly, block the ball from getting past and then finally played a hockey match against each other. The children will use these skills after half term to compete against other children in the area in a competition.


P.E. Passing and Moving

In PE this term the children in Year 5 are working on their passing, moving and communicating skills. This week in their PE lesson they had to be able to demonstrate that they could find a space and evade defenders.


29/09/17 – Archery

Today the children in Year 5 were given the opportunity to start their special Archery Project from MSP in PE. The children learned how to set up the box and arrow correctly, learned the correct stance to use when aiming and firing and got a chance to aim at targets and try to score points. They all had a lovely afternoon and can’t wait for next week!



06/10/17 Archery Y5

Today the children in Y5 had the chance to take part in Archery again. At the beginning of the lesson Mr Osborne questioned the children on how to load their bows and arrows, recapping on health and safety rules and modelling how to do this correctly. After that the children were split in half. Half of the group aimed at a board that has points written on them, if they hit the numbers then they could challenge the other people in their groups to do that many exercises (e.g. press ups, sit ups, burpees etc). The other half of the group were given targets to hit: a goal, skittles, a football and a dodgeball. Each target as worth a certain amount of points. (Goal = 1, skittles = 10, football = 15, dodgeball = 25) When the children hit the targets they then gave their teams that amount of exercises to keep the children constantly active. The children had a fabulous time and their accuracy in aiming is getting much better with Taylor, Jayden, Daisy and Anabella hitting the smallest target on a number of occasions. Well done Y5, a fantastic effort.


Long Distance Running

In PE last week, 23/11/2017, Year 5 worked on their Long Distance Running, focussing in particular on endurance and pacing themselves to build up their stamina, enabling them to have a strong finish at the end of the race.

WW2 - Dance


During PE, the children in year 5 are completing the topic of performance dance. In order to link to our class topic of WW2 the children began the lesson by watching a video of a ww2 dance – the swing, the jitterbug and the Charleston. The children then learnt some dance moves and put them together in a sequence. We will hopefully be showing these dancing routines off soon so watch this space!



In P.E. this term, the year 5 children have been improving their gymnastic skills, in particular their gymnastic balances.  They worked on different points of balance and counter-balance moves, then worked in small groups or with a partner putting together a sequence of moves, which incorporated different balances and rolls such as teddy bear roll, log roll, pencil and egg roll.  While performing these manoeuvres, the children had to maintain body control and think about their posture.
