The Daily Mile

In Year Two this term we are taking part in ‘The Daily Mile’.  This new initiative is to encourage children to run, jog or walk a mile every day at their own pace. This not only promotes children's well-being but also their fitness levels. In turn this encourages a better healthier regime which improves concentration and mood levels along with improved behaviour to take forward in everyday life.

In this difficult period with so much uncertainty, this activity gives focus to the children to be aspirational in setting themselves daily achievable goals and to better their personnel best each and every day. With so many restrictions, especially with moving around and social distancing in a given area, this activity is great! ‘The Daily Mile’ is quick, fun and inclusive of everyone in the classes, even the teachers and teaching assistants!

The aim of our daily mile is for each class to have a destinations map where they go on a journey around the world, visiting fifteen different countries from Australia to the USA, gathering interesting facts about each country they visit.

As each daily run is completed, the class teacher or teaching assistant marks a cross on the map and as each class reaches a main destination, they achieve a sticker for that country to place on their class map. Then the class receives a certificate for reaching that country. The children are loving it and so are we! We have seen so much determination from our Year Two children, keep up the fantastic work!

Sporting Activities 2019-2020

Infant Agility

On Tuesday 25th February, Mr Greenfield and Miss Carter took a team of 17 children from Years 1 and 2 to take part in a local Infant Agility competition.  Out of 9 schools, Willesborough Infant School finished in 4th position, which is a great achievement.  The children had to take part in a number of activities including: short sprint, balance, target bowl, javelin throw, speed bounce, bean bag target throw and standing long jump.   All of the children had lots of fun and encouraged each other to do their best; we are very proud of them.   A big thank you to all parents who helped with transport and supported the team throughout the afternoon, it is really appreciated.  Thank you to Mr Greenfield and Miss Carter for taking the team to the event.  We have put together a slide show of some of the fun we had at the event:

Infant Agility

Our first Infant Agility competition on Thursday 2nd February was a great success!  The children who took part really enjoyed it, both for taking part and the competitive element.  They had practised and prepared for all sorts of events, including long jump and javelin.  Although we did not place, the children worked very hard from 4pm-6pm with other local schools.  We have put together a slide show of some of the fun we had at the event:

 

Rapid Fire Cricket Competition

On Thursday 24th January, Mr Head and Mr Greenfield took a team of 10 children from Years 1 and 2 to take part in a local cricket competition.  Out of 16 schools, Willesborough Infant School finished in 4th position, just losing out in the semi-final by 1 run.  It was the first time that the school have played rapid fire cricket so the children did amazingly well as a team and had a lot of fun playing this new sport - we are very proud of them.  A big thank you to all parents who helped with transport and supported the team throughout the afternoon, it is really appreciated.  Thank you to Mr Greenfield and Mr Head for running the after school club and giving the children their first opportunity to compete against other schools. 

      

      

Year 1

Year 1 have been focusing on infant agility, where children have been practising skills including throwing and catching.

 

Year 2

Year 2 have been focusing on team games, with each class working closely with Mr Greenfield.  The children have been practising skills in throwing, catching, jumping and running.  These skills are applied in a range of game experiences which were fun and competitive.

   

Football Club with Mr Greenfield and Mr Head

Children who attended this club in term 1 really enjoyed practising and developing their football skills.  They have been practising skills including holding control when passing the ball, dribbling the ball around cones to enhance their agility skills and working collaboratively in a team.  These skills have been applied in football team games, which children compete for fun in, within a competitive setting.
