Mini Tennis league  May 2014

 

 

 

 

 

Over 50 children from All Saints, Chardstock, Kilmington, Seaton and St.Mary’s took part in this year’s Year 3 and 4 mini tennis league held at Colyton Grammar school. The children had a lot of fun with the Year 11 Sports Leaders playing ‘get out of jail’, ‘tennis rounders’, ‘champions’ and doubles matches. The league is part of the National School Games which aims to see more children taking part in regular school sport competition. All schools won matches and had their own little super stars however St.Mary’s and Seaton should be congratulated for coming first and second in the team competition – they will go onto represent the Axe Valley in the East Devon finals on Thursday 12th June at Exmouth indoor tennis centre.

 

 

Yr 5/6 ‘Quad Kids’ Athletics

 

Thank you all for attending. Well done to all the children who took part.

Athletics is traditionally thought of as an individual sport but ‘Quad Kids’ is very much a team competition and every point gained can make a difference.

Congratulations to All Saints and Kilmington who will represent us in the East Devon round at The King’s School on Thursday 22ndMay 4.15-6pm. Also congratulations to Beer who had the fastest time in the ‘Team Hurdle relay challenge’.

The Axe Valley PE Academy

 

One aspect of the Sports Partnership work is to provide pupils, who show above average ability in PE, with sporting enrichment and challenge opportunities through an Academy programme.

Twenty-eight Year 5 and 6 pupils have attended 2 academy workshops at Colyton Grammar School this term working alongside 6th form Sports Leaders. During the first meeting pupils completed a series of challenges to test their speed and agility. Pupils were asked to consider the importance of agility in a range of sports, some wrote:-

 

“…moving into space to receive a ball”

                                      “…if you play tennis you have to be able to move backwards”

“…move away from opponents quicker”

                                                                              “….quicker at saving a goal”

                “….better at marking the person on the other team”

“….if the ball bounces in the other direction you can quickly sidestep and get it”

                                               “…if someone hits a fake lift you’ll need to change direction”

         “…..dodging round players”

 

During the second workshop pupils developed problem solving, team work and communication skills by completing a series of ‘Orienteering’ challenges. After navigating their way around the Grammar school to find a series of controls, pupils then went head to head to complete a different course in the fastest time. Accurate navigation was also required to ensure the correct controls were read - consequently ‘the tortoise sometimes over took the hare’!

These pupils will meet at Colyton again on Friday 23rd May 1.30-3.30pm.

 

 

Hi 5s Netball Training

 

Pupils in Years 4 and 5 from All Saints, Beer, Kilmington and Seaton Primary Schools attended Hi 5s Netball Training at Colyton Grammar School in the spring term. The children had the opportunity to develop their ball handling and footwork skills whilst playing small sided games. The training culminated in a round robin tournament where pupils were able to play with children from other schools and make new friends along the way.

In September these pupils will have the opportunity to compete in the Hi 5s Netball league to be held at Axe Valley Community College.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dance Festival 2014

Each year Axe Valley holds a Dance festival for Reception children and Year 1.

The children learnt 4 dances which are inspired by popular children’s books.

Children learnt -

·        the Charlton as part of ‘Giraffes can’t dance’

·         some freeze frames in Spiderman

·         made a flower from coloured material whilst learning a motif of a seed growing

·         made up dances to different weather seasons from the book ‘Mr wolfs weekend’.

Children developed their dances by working with a partner; changing the speed and adding extra moves to their dances.

The Year 10 children who lead this festival practised during their PE lessons and learnt a tremendous amount throughout the day too.

Swimming Gala March 2014: Year 3/4:

Big-School winners - Beer

Small-School winners - Kilmington

 

Click here for the results sheet

 

All Saints; Axminster; Beer; Chardstock; Seaton; Kilmington; Membury and Shute Primary schools, all bought teams to take part in the year 3 and 4 Swimming gala on Monday 24th of March.  

 

This was led by Axe Valley year 10 girls PE group and 4 year 11 GCSE boys – Kyle Gould; Max Richards; Jowel Cruda and Jacob Rowe. The year 10s took part in training and also lead the year 5 and 6 swimming gala in November so had used previous experience to run a successful gala for the primary school children.

As usual it was an exciting affair with a lot cheering and close races.  Adding to the excitement were the nerves of the Year 3 swimmers, for many of whom it was their first competitive gala.  The standard as ever was high and the swimmers performed at their best. There were some very close finishing times between All Saints and Beer on a few races.

Once again I would like to say thank you to our primary coordinators and leaders who continually help with the running of our galas.

The swimmers did not disappoint! Jen Patchett from Beer won the Year 3 one width on front and Gracie from Kilmington won the Year 4 race. Daniel James from St  Mary wont the year 3 one width on front . Noah Payne from All Saints won two races and swam very well. The girls from Axminster won the relay race which included egg and spoons!

 

A great afternoon for all.

 

Mrs Oxley

Sports Coordinator

Parachute and Skipping

 

On the 5th February over 200 students across reception and Year 1 from All Saints, Beer, Colyton, Kilmington, Membury, Musbury, Seaton, Shute and St Mary’s  Primary schools took part in our annual Parachute and Skipping Festival.

 

The day involved 10 stations, including a variety of games such as: Over the hill, Cat and Mouse, Mushroom, Tiding the Bedroom, French Skipping, Hoop skipping and Long ropes. After training and practise, 30 Year 8 girls from Axe Valley Community Sports Leaders ran the event successfully gaining valuable leadership skills.

                  

 

Basketball with Sporting Chance

 

Over 50 students from Axminster, All Saints, Beer, Colyton, Kilmington, Membury, Musbury, Seaton and Shute Primary school, have reguarly attended a fun Basketball session held at Axe Valley Community College.

 

Run by Axminster's SSCO and Sporting Chance, students have practised 3 different stations each week followed by games.  The club has now been extended due to its success and the participant's excellent commitment.

                   

Axminster student “I have really enjoyed the sessions! It's really fun and I can’t wait to do more Basketball back at school”.

 

Basketball / Multiskills club every Monday 4:00 – 5:00pm at Axe Valley Community College.

 

 

Street Dance and Food work shops

 

Students from All Saints, Beer, Axminster and Seaton have been involved in a street dance programme, learning moves to 'Thriller' and culminating in a full costume performance to students and teachers. The food workshop involved cooking and trying food, with a focus on healthy living. The children learnt that together, exercise and a balanced diet play an important part in being healthy.

 

“It doesn't mean we aren't allowed to eat food that's ‘bad’, like pizza, we can eat it! We learnt that we can put healthy food on top and it is still good for us”.

 

Students are looking forward to teaching their new routines and moves to their friends at their schools.

 

Local Charity HALFF ran the sessions for our primary schools. See what they can offer the community by visiting their website (Link to be inserted soon).

 

 

Sport s leadership

 

We are proud at Axe Valley to provide sports leaders assistance to our Primary schools. Sports leadership benefits students from Year 8 though to 6th Form. At the end of year assembly the majority of student's will have gained valuable experience leading our primary schools. We are extremely proud of this feat.
