We made tangram pictures of Olympic sports today, practising our fine motor skills in 1/2B 🔷🔺🟢
Congratulations to our winners in 4D on achieving great results in our Willow Tree Olympics. We are really looking forward to our closing ceremony today.
As part of our DT project, we designed, made and evaluated our own Olympic medals in Y1/2B. We decided our medals must have the Olympic rings and the goddess of victory, Nike. They should be shiny and durable. They could have a ribbon attached, to wear around the neck. 🏅
Our Science investigation on push and pull forces (in sports) generated the question: How much force will make a ball travel the furthest? 🎾⚽️
We had a look at our countries flag, we talked about what we would like to do if we were in the Olympics and read a story and listened to some facts all about Mo Farah. We even did the Mo bot.
We were very lucky today as we got to see some real Olympic medals and hold some things that have been to the Olympics all over the world.
Today we celebrated the children’s achievements in their new class. It appears everyone has had a fantastic first week and really enjoying finding new friendships, getting to know their Teacher and learning new things. Well done to all our winners and we really enjoyed our Olympics theme.
Our children in our early years have really enjoyed taking part in the Willow Tree Olympics. They showed some excellent skills, the favourite event was the sprint! We have some fantastic young Olympians here at Rockingham!

We awarded children with trophies, certificates and book vouchers for – Excellence Friendship Respect Reading Champion Sportsman Sportswomen Overcoming Adversity Boy of the Year Girl of the Year, Here are our winners –
In KS1, we enjoyed matching 🇫🇷 vocabulary to the correct sporting activity. It was surprising to see some of the words were very similar to our English words for sports!
Our inspirational Olympian is the Sheffield born Jessica Ennis-Hill. My new Y6s have enjoyed researching her journey through her early career and the passion and drive for success; into life after her retirement from her athletics career.
Our new Y1 children enjoyed collecting scores in our Olympic themed activities yesterday.
What a great way to practise our number skills!
We are always going for gold🏅
Great afternoon in Y5/6H and 6B where children have practiced lots of skills from seated throw and Javelin to sprints and target throwing as part of our mini Olympics.

In 1M we have enjoyed learning about and the recreating some Olympic Games . The children had their own score cards to record all their times and outcomes. They really enjoyed being active and taking part.
Today we took a Year 6 and Year 5 team to compete against Greasbrough Primary school to open the Multi Sports Centre. The children were really lucky to have the Mayor of Rotherham who presented the children with medals. Congratulations everyone a wonderful afternoon had by all.

During PE, 6H looked at the technique and movement needed to throw a discus. We looked at body movements and linked to History of the ancient Olympic Games. We realised it is not easy to throw with this action!
It was so exciting to get our competitive sport back up and running this week with a visit to Winterhill. Schools within the Wingfield area were asked to take part in a Year 4 boys tournament. Our children reached the quarter finals and we were very proud of their achievements.
