Apple Class Sports Weeks.
So far this sports week, we have had great fun with inflatable football games and team games out in the field. Although we have been competitively earning points for our team, we have also shown great camaraderie.
Bring your best running legs for tomorrow.
Exciting news! The results from Sports Week are in…
All of the scores from the KS1 and KS2 races were added together, along with all of the activities that took place on the bottom field.

The results are…
4th place – Yellow (438 points)

Today, Apple class got the opportunity to take part in some archery. They had a go at firing the arrows at the target trying to get a score of 10.
The second game the children had a go at was making a pizza. In their teams they had to score one of each point.
The children really enjoyed it and were proud of their efforts.
This week the children of Apple class have had the opportunity to take part in some fantastic activities. They have had the chance to learn some new scooter skills, play dodgeball and take part in the brilliant event that was Sports Day. The children have worked extremely well together and should be proud of all their achievements this week.
As part of sports week, 28 pupils from each of the KS2 year groups represented their team in a gymnastic competition. They had to perform a sequence which consisted of a range of elements including forward rolls, cartwheels and a number of balances. In addition to this, they performed a vault.
All individuals scores were added up to give a team total. Have a look at the results below…
First of all, a massive thank you to everyone who helped to make Sports Week a success! The children showed lots of resilience through the whole week, especially when having a go at sports that they had not tried before.
The total of the final scores combined results from throughout the week including the KS2 swimming gala, KS2 gymnastics competition and KS1 and KS2 sports day results. The final results of the week were announced in assembly on Friday and are as follows:

On Friday, year 3 raised money for Soccer Aid by completing the obstacle course set up on the playground. We could either carry, dribble or bounce a ball along the course.
We were also able to complete a session with Exeter City. We were able to learn how to control the ball and have mini football matches.
What a great end to Sports Week!
We loved our afternoon playing cricket games with Mr Buzz! We practised our spatial awareness and aim with rolling balls. We also practised our quick changes of direction with a catch game.
Today we enjoyed learning how to play hockey and learnt how to dribble the ball, whilst controling the hockey stick.
To kick off sports week, the whole school were lucky enough to watch scooter demonstrations by Team Extreme. Some of us were even lucky enough to take part in sessions with Team Extreme. We learnt about the parts of a scooter, scooter safety and were able to learn some new tricks and try the ramps! Thank you very much to Team Extreme for visiting again this year!
Willow class thoroughly enjoyed their football workshop today, as part of our sports week. All children put in 100% effort and learnt some great new skills. What a wonderful way to spend a Friday afternoon! A massive thank you to Exeter City Football Club tutors.
Year 6 have been carrying out a range of sports challenges including:
How far can you throw a javelin or beanbag?
How fast can you run a width of he field?
How many speed bounce jumps can you do in 30 secs?
For each activity, they had to measure precisely and find their team averages using the mean, mode, median and range.
Hazeldown’s Wake and Shake was a sea of pink and blue this morning as we prepare for our Race for Life!
We had great fun today learning how to fire arrows at a target. Great fun and some great skills learnt!
This afternoon, 64 children from KS2 represented their house in a swimming gala. After individual races, several relays took place involving all of the children. A packed crowd of parents cheering on their children made it a fantastic atmosphere.
The final standings:
1st: Blue 80
2nd: Red 69
3rd: Green 57
4th: Yellow 52
These will be added to gymnastics and athletics. Check the blog on Friday for the overall standings.
112 children from KS2 took part in a gymnastic competition today. It involved learning a floor sequence and performing a vault. The standard was very high and the effort from all children was fantastic.

Cherry Class had great fun taking part in a scooter workshop with Team Extreme!
Sports Week has started! The whole school gathered on the field to take part in Wake Up, Shake Up, led by Mr Quint. Thank you to all the grown ups who joined in too! Same time, same place tomorrow!
What an amazing week we have had so far, with so many events to take part in. It all started on Tuesday in Year 4 with a visit from the amazing Team Extreme boys!! They showed us how to do loads of things on our scooters and we went up the ramps too! Ecveryone had so much fun and really challenged themselves because going up the ramps was quite scary for some of us!
Many of the year group enjoyed taking part in the gymnastics competition and were a credit to themselves and their house teams.
Today, we enjoyed a glorious afternoon of sport with the running races, followed by a range of sporting challenges, including a game called Ground Hog, where each team member had to crawl through the legs of the rest of their team! There was a lovely feeling of sportsmanship throughout Year 4 and lots of encouragement and support. Well done to all of you for a fantastic effort!
But it’s not over yet! We still have the swimming gala to look forward to tomorrow and then Year 4 have the opportunity to play Tri Golf on Monday! Wow!!!
As part of Sports Week, Year 6 have had the opportunity to try New Age Kurling. It was great fun and our aim definitely improved with practice!
What a fantastic day of sporting activities and competitions!
In addition to ‘Team Extreme’ running scooter workshops and key stage one enjoying learning a Paralympic sport (boccia), key stage two took part in a gymnastic competition led by a gymnastic specialist: Catherine Kilburne. We were also fortunate enough to have 4 expert gymnasts from Exmouth college who helped judge the competition.
The standard was excellent and the children behaved impeccably.
All the teams’ points will be added to the overall total which will include the athletics and swimming. Look out for the results on Monday!
This morning Willow class had a go at playing Boccia, which is very similar to bowls. We all had a fantastic time and improved our bowling skills, by learning from a specialist called Zoe.
Year 6 enjoyed a taster cheerleading session as part of Sports Week.
This morning Willow class produced their own cheerleading routine. Everyone delivered some fantastic performances, we even received a class certificate !
This morning, the whole school was fortunate to have the visitor of Dr Bert Bond from Exeter University. He talked to the children about the importance of a healthy lifestyle, which included sports/exercise and diet. He explained the connection between these and how they can lower the risk of heart disease in later years.
They learnt so much, including sophisticated vocabulary including: cardiovascular and physiologist.
Can you remember what these terms mean?
