Learning Federation succeed in Quicksticks competition

Broadford and Mead came together yet again to compete in a Havering Sports Collective tournament at Coopers Coborn. The children worked very closely together and with some great reciprocity and resilience put their hockey skills they have developed over the term to some good use. After some excellent goal scoring from Atin and some great defending from Temira Broadford found themselves top of their group and proceeded through to the semi finals. Unfortunately, the semi final was a tough game and we were beaten 2-1. Even though we were unsuccessful with winning the tournament we were rewarded a certificate for excellent team work. Well done Learning Federation!

KS2 Gymnastics!

The KS2 gymnasts have been busy practicing their handstands this week. They spent some time working on the basic shapes and how to stretch all the muscles in their bodies before trying to turn this upside down and balance on their hands. It is harder than it looks!

The girls showed great resilience as they practiced, improving on each attempt. "You really have to keep your arms straight" said Martina as she tried to perfect her handstand. Sophia showed great control of her body as she worked on her handstand. "I had trouble coming down from my handstand but I can do it now!"

ART and Design Club

In Art Club, we have been designing colourful, snowy mittens catching one delicate snowflake. Some of our younger art clubbers became fascinated with the different snowflake shapes they could make with a simple piece of circular paper and a pair of scissors! A great way to teach pattern and symmetry as well! We are now exploring Optical Illusion art.... Using just colour, shape and line, the children have already produced some super eye-catching pieces: Can you see a 3D hand beneath the stripes and a globe popping out of these designs?

Reach for the Stars!

The KS1 gymnasts have been busy this week trying to reach for the stars! We were fortunate enough to be able to borrow Mead's crash mat and spring board this week, so it has been a very exciting session getting use to the new equipment. 

"This is harder than it looks" said Harry as everyone tried to master the basics of the hurdle step take off. The gymnasts first practiced their hurdle step on the floor using hoops before they tried it out on the spring board. The gymnasts not only had to focus on their take off, but the shapes they were making in the air along with that all important landing. "I like doing the star jump best" said Roxy as she experimented with different jumps. 

Thanks for letting us borrow your springboard Mead!
