P.E. Events and Experiences

Year 3 and 4 Sports Day!

Wow! What an amazing afternoon we all had yesterday.  The sun was shinning and we had great fun taking part in different events.  The children participated in javelin throwing, relay race, shot put, standing long jump, sack race and the egg and spoon race.

Although it was a shame families could not join us, you would have been very proud of your child.  They showed great sportsmanship and respect for each other when completing the races.  Thank you for your support in making sure your child Sports Day was a success!

I am sure you are all keen to know the results….drum roll please…

1st – China (Red Team)

2nd – Brazil (Green Team)

3rd – Italy and Australia (Blue and Yellow Team)

Elijah received the ‘Respect’ trophy for his support towards other children, during the events.

Orienteering with Mr. Patchett

Year 3 took part in an afternoon of orienteering on the school field with Mr. Patchett. The children worked in pairs equipped with a map and a score card and raced to find all the letters hidden around the field. The children quickly discovered they needed to read the map to win, and thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

Life Education

On Tuesday 29th July, Helen from Life Education visited our school to talk to us about health, drugs and emotional wellbeing.  Unfortunately, we were unable to have the lesson in the Life Education bus however we still really enjoyed having Harold back to visit us.   We learnt about the different systems in our body and what effect certain foods, drugs and alcohol can have on us.  We also spent time exploring why it is such a good to be unique!



The circus came to Haytor View!

On Thursday Lucas and Johnny came to our school to teach us circus skills.  We learnt how to use diablos, flower sticks and juggling balls.  They amazed us with a fantastic show.  The unicycle was really high and we got a chance to take part!

Mr Patchett’s Impact Day

Last Tuesday, Mr Patchett from Newton Abbot College, came into our school to support us with our PE.  We really enjoyed this session, working with Mr Patchett. We focused on skipping and how we can challenge ourselves.  It sounds simple but this proved to be quite tricky at times!

“I enjoyed learning to skip with my friends”

“I enjoyed learning new tricks and getting better at skipping”

“I enjoyed seeing Mr Patchett and I enjoyed skipping faster”

“I became a better skipper”

“I learnt different tricks and techniques”


Life Education

On Wednesday 12th and Thursday 13th February saw us welcoming the ‘Life Education Bus’ to Haytor View.  During the two days, each class had the opportunity to take part in activities linked to understanding their bodies, health and keeping safe.  Parents also had the opportunity to gain a little bit of an insight to what went on.  This was a good opportunity for parents to support their child in developing their understanding.  We look forward to welcoming ‘Life Education’ back next year.
