Karate Kids!



On Wednesday of this week, Year 6 had the opportunity, as part of their PE lesson, to receive some coaching on Karate. Mr Clarke, from Amber Valley School Sports Partnership, led the taster session and introduced the children to the basic skills, at beginner level. 

He also discussed with the children the level of discipline and focus involved and  showed them a variety of techniques used. 

Year 6 thoroughly enjoyed the experience and a few were keen to pursue clubs in the area, moving forward. 

Heads, Shoulders, Knees ......

  • In French ,  Year 4 have been looking at vocabulary for the face and body recently and have enjoyed learning the French version of the song “Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes”, to hopefully help them remember the different parts. Tres bien!
