FITNESS FILLED FRIDAY
A daily blog by a coach for the coach
It was another day, another breakfast club session visiting the lovely staff and pupils of St Mary’s, as much as this session is about the children being ready for the school day ahead, this session each morning is such a fulfilling thing for me to do personally, knowing that the children enjoy seeing me first thing everyday is something that never fails to fill me with immense pride!
Today, the idea for our breakfast club was to get the children to stand around a parachute and the idea of the game was to keep the ball on the parachute for as long as possible whilst moving it. The children showed great enthusiasm throughout this session which was great to see.
Each Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoon, we travel to visit the wonderful staff and children of Bursar Primary School which never fails to disappoint!
This term we are delivering 3 different PE sessions to the pupils of Bursar: Ball Games, Interpretive Dance: Jazz and Circuits, for Year 1/2, Year 3/4 and Year 5/6 respectively.
For me personally Ball Games and Circuits are something that aren't alien to me personally as a coach and/or PE Teacher. But Jazz themed dance is a new one for me but I'm determined to have learnt a great deal (from teaching these sessions) and from the children, that have dance backgrounds, by the end of the term.
But before each session we deliver a lunch time club, we decided to play a game of bench ball in the hall. I split the group into teams of 7 and they were told thr rules of the game. They played the game in very good spirits and it was very good to see, overall it was a really fun start to the afternoon.
This afternoons sessions were slightly shorter due to a Christmas game that was to be played by the whole school, so i set up a circuit for the children to do in their chosen groups and they were free to move around the stations in whatever order they wished.
The next daily update will feature Wednesday of the next week, as we don't have a session on Monday but we are in the same two schools but the lessons are slightly different, stay tuned as this will go live on Friday (15/12/23)
See you soon!!
Remember to Be Great!
