Dance Dance Dance

Oti Mabuse has joined Joe Wicks in launching live lessons for children during school closures. Strictly Come Dancing dancer Oti will provide education for youngsters currently at home as the pandemic continues across the country.

Oti, who won the BBC talent show alongside Emmerdale star Kelvin Fletcher last year, will provide children themed classes, with Trolls on Tuesday, followed by Shrek on Wednesday and Mary Poppins on Thursday. Friday will see her engage in Jungle Book-themed activities, and there’s no letting up at the weekend, either. She will provide an Aladdin themed lesson on Saturday, with High School Musical on Sunday.

Create a game

With the announcement of the postponement of the Olympics, I thought for today’s activity, we could think about the different games we play in PE. Today, try to create your own game.

Think about:

  • The aim of the game (how can it be won?)
  • Equipment needed
  • Number of players
  • Rules

Write it all up into one poster and maybe we can play the game when we all get back to school. Who knows, maybe one day, your game will be an Olympic sport!

Football Focus – Girls

Last Thursday, our girls’ football team played their second game for the Warwick University Girls League. We played against Grange Farm and the school values that the girls displayed were outstanding. The final score was 23-1 to Grange Farm. A massive well done to our girls for their teamwork and resilience. I would also like to say a big thank you also to the parents and carers who came to support the team.

Football Focus – Boys

Last week, the boys kicked off their campaign with two matches: away at Allesley Hall and home against Howes Primary.

On Thursday, against Allesley Hall, the boys started well as a team, passing the ball round in challenging weather conditions. They worked hard as a team and the game was extremely close. Unfortunately, Allesley Hall made the most of two rare chances and Cannon Park were unable to convert their shots into goals while in search of an equaliser. Our goalkeeper made a brilliant save to deny a third goal, which drew gasps and cheers from the crowd.

On Friday, against Howes Primary, the boys started well and took the lead. A more attacking style of play was a joy to watch to the many spectators. They wanted goal after goal! Unfortunately, a few too many of the goals fell to Howes Primary and the scoreline ended 8-6.

Despite two defeats, the boys played extremely well as a team and enjoyed their first two games. It is only a matter of time until these excellent performances turn into results for this young and ambitious team! Many thanks to the parents for their outstanding support on the sidelines.

Match of the Day

Cannon Park Girls beat Newdigate Primary in their first match of the season. The girls stuck to their formation well and showed a calmness on the ball and a keen eye for a pass. Their tenacity in the tackle led to many shooting opportunities and the scoreline ended an emphatic 7-0. All the girls represented Cannon Park proudly, showing all of our values.  This photo was taken before the match. If you think they look happy here, you should’ve seen their smiles after the game! The team really enjoyed the match and it was played in an excellent spirit.
