Netball fun and Bleep test results

Date: 17th Mar 2017 @ 10:11am

The children have been busy practising their netball skills in games lessons this week and we have been very impressed at the huge leaps (both literally and metaphorically!) that they have made. The level of play from all year groups is very high and the children have really taken on board the importance of teamwork and not been 'grumble crumbles'.  Well done!

We have also completed the Bleep Tests this week (also known as the Beep test). This is a timed shuttle run over 20 metres that we do once each half-term (weather permitting). When the children start high school they may complete the Bleep test at regular intervals to help asses their fitness. The data is then used in high school to help determine which P.E. set a child is in.

We decided that we would like to help the children prepair for this by improving their running technique and endurance.    

Each time the Bleep test is completed we record the childrens results and let the individual children know what they achieved.  Our aim is for the children to try to improve on their own last score.

The children generally greatly enjoy the challange and every child we have has, since we started this school year, increased their Bleep test result and the average score in each year group is well ahead of the national average for their ages.  Fantastic everyone!
