Chorley Sports Partnership
Mayfield have continued to be part of the Chorley sports partnership again this year. The partnership allows school to participate in a wider range of activities and access equipment, keep up to date with current and new initiatives and increase access to training staff and provide coaching opportunities for pupils. It also has enabled us to increase pupils competitive opportunities both in and outside the school environment.
Class 1 have been learning how to kick a ball, and how to travel over and through low apparatus, like tunnels, and stepping stones. We use different songs and music to know what activity we are doing, and we are getting very good at Musical bumps, just in time for the Christmas party! Some children are using their PE time to practice their important MOVE programmes.
We have been working on body awareness and moving on different body surfaces including back, front, bottom, hands and knees. We have been learning to follow the simple instructions during team games i.e. stop, go, stand up and sit down
In Class 4 we have been learning to throw, catch and pass a ball to a partner. As our skills improved we practiced target shooting into the basketball net. We have greatly improved our turn taking and waiting skills this term.
Class 5 have been involved in fun and fitness activities. It has been based on fitness stations including, running, agility, step work and shoulder and arm strength. Students have timed, recorded and evaluated their progress throughout the sessions.
College students have chosen from a range of activities. Some students have been practicing yoga skills, a group of students have been involved in attending a local leisure centre on a weekly basis - where they have joined with a group of students from the Coppice school and have taken part in over the net games and basketball. A third group have attended a weekly Zumba class and two groups have had the opportunity to take part in rambling.
Change for life club
This year we will be running a change for life club in school. This is an exciting new venture and it will enable pupils to become involved in a range of fun activities based on healthy lifestyles, and will include cooking and physical activities. Two members of staff have received training and the activity bag provided by Chorley Sports Partnership has arrived in school so we are ready to go!
The club will run over a period of twelve weeks starting in the Spring term.
House team events - Children in Need
The young leaders have just supported their first official sporting event. They were involved along with the school council in the organization of the first house team event of the term (Children in Need). They were responsible for deciding on the number and type of games to be played. During the event one sports leader was nominated to be responsible for introducing the games and recording the points scored during the event. The four remaining leaders took responsibility for demonstrating the games, ensuring that each team had the correct equipment and to support each team through the games.
Boccia England regional competition 28th November 2014
Pupils from Mayfield College took part in the Boccia England regional competition at Queen Elizabeth Grammar School in Blackburn. They were fine ambassadors for school, their behavior was impeccable and they were good sports men and women. We were represented by two team on the day and although we are not among the ribbons we managed to win five of the games we played. There were over 37 teams involved and it was a really enjoyable and fun event.
