The Cooper School KS1 Multiskills Festival

At the end of March, The Cooper School hosted the KS1 multiskills festivals. Unfortunately due to various traffic conditions in the morning it caused a delay in the start of the festival. However as each school arrived the sports leaders were very keen to take a group of children to warm them up in preparation for the upcoming activities. Glory Farm were lucky enough to be able to have a few practises on 2 of the events while waiting for the other schools to arrive.

The skills that were tested was balance, catching and throwing, throwing at a target, ladders, balancing a ball/beanbag on a racket, standing long jump, football dribble. All the activities were run as a relay format with the exception of the standing long jump. The sports leaders counted the number of runs in the allocated time for each team and from this result  there was a winner for each event. At the start of each event the leaders explained how their event was run and how teams could gain the most points. There were 10 stations and after each team had completed all 10 stations there was a snack break. However because of a delayed start, it was decided that there wasn’t enough time to complete the 2nd round. The School Games Value was teamwork and at the end 10 children were given a certificate for showing how well they worked within their team. The school that won most events was Glory Farm Team 1, winning 5/10 1st place certificates, well done.
