Nursery were very lucky to have a special visitor today. Harper’s Daddy – Mr McNamee teaches drama at a high school and came into school to teach us some drama games. We met Pepsi the monkey and we showed Pepsi and Mr McNamee our fantastic listening skills. We became jungle animals moving in a variety of ways and making animal sounds. We even played an exciting king of the jungle game, taking turns to be the sleepy lion.
We would like to say a very big thank you to Mr McNamee and Harper for such a wonderful drama session. The children developed in confidence and enjoyed playing such fun games.
Since helping to earn the Silver Award in the School Games Mark, Mr Waldron, our sports coach, has been looking for exciting new sports for us to try. Today a group of intrepid young athletes took part in a Kinball tournament. Kin-ball is a one of a kind team sport in which, unlike other team sports where two teams compete head-to-head, three teams compete in a single match. The sport was invented by a PE teacher named Mario Demers in 1986 in Quebec, Canada. Our kids loved it and thought it was brilliant! Thank you to Mr Waldron, Miss Brookhouse and Mrs Brookes for making this happen for our kids.
Our play leaders are a dedicated bunch of children in KS2 who help to make our lunchtimes more fun and active by organising games and activities for others. Mr Waldron, our sports coach, makes it all happen. To reward their hard work, he takes them on a termly treat—yesterday they visited Warrington Wolves. They had a tour of grounds, saw the VIP lounge and even met the manager. What a brilliant day! Many thanks to Mr Waldron, Mrs Bates and Miss Brookhouse for giving our children such a great day out!
