This year seems to have flown by 🙂

We will only have two sessions this month

We focussed on balance

and co-ordination.

As always we warmed up too some

Funky music 🙂 then

This month we are concentrating on

Football skills mostly and hopefully

we can catch another look at

Skipping ropes and

Hockey stick dribble

Today we had fun with the footballs…..

We had a go at bouncing it in front of us

and catching 🙂



We learnt how to stand to make our

balance stronger…..


We then tried dribbling the ball

in a straight line 🙂


Keep tuning in to see how we get on

in May 🙂

Have a lovely long weekend everyone.

November so far……

Well we have got off to a

very busy start for November!

Here is a little taster 🙂

As always, we started with a warm up

to some funky music with Lesley


Once our muscles were warm,

we were shown how to throw

and catch a ball and then

Lesley challenged us to move the ball

around our body


It is tricky! Can you do it?!

We tried controlling a ball along the lines


We had a balance challenge


We all had a go!


Two Winners this Week!!! 🙂

Well done to you Lottie and Ben!

We finished with a stretch and cool down.


Certificates proudly presented to:

Lottie, Ben, Henry, Finlay and Jack

Well done! 🙂

For our two sessions in December we

are going to be looking at

Scooter Boards!

We are disappointed to see that our pictures on here

have disappeared! 🙁

Apparently a fault on the

Schools eduBuzz WordPress Site!

This hopefully will be

rectified at some point and the pictures will re-appear!

Fingers crossed!


We   warmly   welcome –

Lottie, Jack, Finlay, Fraser and Liam to

our programme 🙂

we hope you enjoy yourselves 🙂


We worked our socks off on Friday.!!

Lots of big movements and balance games.

Baby beanbag guard was a big Hit with

our new children  🙂

Ask your child about it……


For  November  we are going to be working

on Ball Skills.

Watch this space…..
