PE around school during Spring 2
Gregg from Lancashire Cricket Foundation has been in school working with children from Year 1 – Year 6 focusing on their batting, bowling and fielding skills. The children in all classes thoroughly enjoyed these sessions.
Why not join Darwen Cricket Club and continue to improve these skills.
We have 2 PE sessions each week and are using Active Maths and Ipep (Interactive PE lesson planner) at Darwen St James this year. Active Maths is aimed at helping the children embed their mathematics in a fun and creative way. We have taken up the challenge of being more active and this allows us to improve our maths skills and our confidence at the same time.
Ipep ensures teachers deliver high quality PE lessons with its interactive lesson planner and assessment tools. We use this from Reception through to Year 6 for teaching.
Each class at Darwen St James complete the 1 kilometer a day running challenge by running laps of either the Key Stage 1 or Key Stage 2 playground.
This year, to coincide with this we are completing the Lancashire Active Mile Challenge. The children continue to run their 1K a day to reach landmarks around the different towns. Each landmark they reach awards them stickers for their Class Challenge Diary. The children learn fun facts at each landmark and their aim is to reach all the landmarks around Lancashire by the ned of the year.
