Key Stage 1 Multi Skills Festival

Key Stage 1 children from the Whitby area came together at Caedmon School to take part in the annual multi skills festival. Children from 16 primary schools enjoyed taking part in a wide range of agility, balance and co-ordination focused activities designed for them by Year 9 Sports Leaders at Caedmon. The Year 9 Sports Leaders worked for two afternoons encouraging, supporting and leading the younger pupils as part of the their Level 1 Leadership course. Many thanks to all who made the event a great success.


Gym Event
On Wednesday 13th February students from 12 schools visited Caedmon for the 'Key Step 2' gymnastics competition. The children skipped, cartwheeled and rolled to success as they all did really well. Everyone was extremely well behaved and made lots of progress throughout the day. The children were amazed by Megan Coates' performance who is a Caedmon pupil and also a professional and Olympic hopeful gymnast. The visitors thoroughly enjoyed the event, with pupils from Sleights, Danby, East Whitby, West Cliff, Castleton, Glaisdale, Stakesby, Egton, Goathland, Fylingdales, Lythe and Ruswarp Primaries taking part. The title for the small schools was eventually taken by a joint team from Castleton and Glaisdale Schools, closely followed by Goathland then Egton. For the large schools, West Cliff came out on top, then Stakesby and Sleights. The highest individual score overall went to Sophie from Egton School.


Multi Skills
Caedmon School recently hosted a Key Stage 1 Primary Multi Skills event over two days. The event was well attended by Ruswarp, Seton, West Cliff, Sleights, East Whitby, Egton, Hawsker, Fylingdales, Danby, St.Hildas, St.Heddas, Lythe, Oakridge, Stakesby, Goathland, Castleton and Airy Hill.
There were over 100 children taking part on each day and the Sports Leaders were given the task of creating mini games which involved different disciplines, such as balance, throwing, catching and accuracy to name a few. The main emphasis was on having fun. The games were spread between the gym and the main hall and each group were given six minutes on each station so the children had time to enjoy and perfect their skills.
The two days were very successful with lots of tired but smiley faces. A big well done to all Sports Leaders involved and thanks to Caedmon PE staff, parents, teachers and Caroline Watson who organised the event.

Primary School Netball Event
Primary Netball CoachingPupils from some of Whitby's smaller primary schools have recently took part in 'High 5 Netball Coaching' at Caedmon School. Over 150 pupils on two afternoons have received the coaching from Caedmon's Year 9 Sports Leaders. The primary school pupils worked on their teamwork, passing, attacking and defending skills as well as developing their overall game play.Primary Netball Coaching

As part of their Year 9 choices, the students who led the event will run a wide range of sporting events over the year for the local primary schools. For their first event they all did really well, so very well done to both them and the primary schools who took part.
