Athletics Summer Term 2

This term Oxford Grove have been doing Athletics during their PE lessons.

It is fair to say that we have quite a few up and coming Usain Bolts, Mo Farah’s and Jessica Ennis’s.

During our PE lessons we have been performing running events including 50M sprints, Hurdles and Relay Races.

Our jumping events included; Long Jump, the Vertical High jump and the Triple Jump.

Our throwing Events included; Javelin, Shotput and Discus.

Over the last few weeks it has been fantastic to see so many children enjoying physical activity and also learning about athletics and different Olympic events.

What has been your favorite Athletic event this term??

Do you know any famous Olympians??

If you were in the Olympics, what event would you do??

Link Schools Afternoon

What a wonderful afternoon!!!

Today 60 children from Blackrod Church school visited Oxford Grove for a link schools lesson of rounders and team activities.

It was great to see so many children smiling and making new friends.

So the afternoon consisted of a meet and greet (cookies and a mingle) followed by 30 minutes of Rounders out on the field then 30 minutes of classroom activities.

Both schools behaved impeccably well throughout the afternoon and hopefully we can do it again some time soon.

What did you enjoy most about the afternoon??


Frisbee competition!

Today, Mr Vickers and I have taken a group of Year 5 and 6 children to our very first Frisbee competition.  It was a great afternoon where we learnt how to play in a Frisbee tournament.

First of all, we gathered our belonging and set off on the minibus to Gaskell School. Once we had arrived, we had a short amount of time to practise throwing and catching the Frisbee which we found a little difficult at first!!

As other school arrived, we all sat down and listened to the rules of the game which we got the hang of as the afternoon went on. During the tournament, the children learnt techniques for throwing and catching the Frisbee successfully and we ended up coming 2nd!

Well done to everyone who took part and thank you to Mr Vickers for taking the children to Gaskell School.
