Year 3 Trust Sports Event:
A big well done to all the Year 3s today at the trust sports event.
We competed against 5 schools in Athletics, Rounders and Netball. The children worked so hard, and really showed great determination and team work! We had lots of fun and to top it off, we came 2nd! Well done Year 3 :)
I had great fun teaching Rowan their final dance PE session this half term! They have been working with Mr G over the last half term to put together a dance which explored bullying. They learnt a group dance motif, explored adding freeze frames, added action and reaction moves within their group and today we explored canon. They were particularly good are giving feedback to each other today! They were amazing and made me very proud! Here are a few snippets from today's performances.
Meet the 2021-2022 Sports Crew! You will see them around school at break and lunchtimes leading games for the younger pupils and helping lead and promote sport in school!

Panathlon Sports Competition- 3rd October 2019
KPA and GS entered a joint team into the Panathlon Hunts SSP sporting event on Thursday 3rd October. The children took part in a range of sports activities such as table cricket, boccia and curling. The children worked in two teams completing 7 minutes at each activity to gain as many points as they could. The atmosphere was very calm and the children were so focused. They showed fantastic teamwork, resilience and determination.....and they came first and second place!!
Here's some of the things the children said about the event:
'I've never got a medal before. I'm so proud I'm not even going to take it off for bed.'
'This is the best day of my life.'
'I want to come back next year. It's so much fun!'
'I don't know why I'm happy but I just love being here.'
'Lucky I got silver because I really like silver.'
A huge thank you to Hunts SSP for another well-organised and inspiring event!
Sports Crew Assembly- 27th September 2019
The sports crew have been working hard in our meetings to prepare a short speech for assembly this week. They led the assembly, introducing themselves and the sports they like to play or watch. Some of the children spoke about sports men or women who inspire them and it was a great way for the rest of the school to learn about the role of the KPA Sports Crew!
Meet the KPA Sports Crew 2019/2020!
Our new sports crew are raring to go after our first meeting last week! They have been planning some exciting events and will be leading an assembly on Monday to introduce themselves to the rest of the school! Watch this space!!
Oak Class Athletics festival- July 2019
We have enjoyed lots of PE this week: swimming on Monday followed by an athletics tournament on Tuesday. The children led their own warm ups and worked in teams to measure and record their distances and timings for events such as howlers, 200m sprint, long jump and 800m run. Miss Orakci was so pleased with how well they supported each other and how they ran their events. They also took part in a relay race and worked out their points based on their timings and distances for each event.
Multi-skills Festival run by Rowan Class- 5th June 2019
On the 5th of June Rowan class planned and set up a multi-skills festival for Ash Class.

Well done to all involved!
Netball County Finals- 23rd May 2019
Our year 6 netball team travelled to Chatteris on Thursday 23rd June to compete in the high fives county netball finals. Following a successful win at the Hunts SSP competition last month they were ready for a tougher challenge! Competing against 20 schools they showed great determination, resilience and teamwork! The tough competition made them work harder as a team and their skills developed with each game. They came 17th in the county and should be very proud of their achievements!
Netball Competition- 30th April 2019
On Tuesday a team of 8 children from year 6 went to the Hunts SSP High Fives Netball Competition. They played really well and all put in 100% effort!
