As the weather is due to be rubbish for a couple of days, I have written a short sports quiz for you. There are some current questions, some historical research for you to do, an anagram to solve and a follow up clip to watch if you wish.

 

Hopefully this will keep you busy and thinking about the history of sport until the good weather returns next week!

 

Feel free to email me to let me know what you found out and what you thought of the sports performance clip at the end.

 

Good luck from Mr Leaman!

BBC - Great British Bunting

With so many events cancelled or restricted for the commemoration of the 75th anniversary of VE Day on 8th May, BBC Radiowanted to come up with a way for people across the UK to mark the occasion and express their pride in our country and to remember and honour the men and women of WW2.

 

They have sent some guidance on making some bunting that you can display in your window, so we wanted to pass this on.

 

If you do make some bunting then we would love to see some photos of it.

22.04.20 PE

 

Basketball has always been a popular sport at White Rock, and our nearest professional team are the Plymouth Raiders. Some of their staff have released a number of videos designed to challenge and develop your skill set.

 

Work your way through the videos from number 1 onward and see how many of these challenges you can complete using the correct techniques. Don't worry if you can't complete them all - simply find your own level of challenge.

 

You may use a ball of your choice (the bigger the ball the harder it gets!) If you have a basketball - brilliant! But if you don't any ball will still create a challenge for you.

 

Enjoy the challenge, and whilst you are on the Raiders YouTube page, check out some of their game footage to see how the game is played at a pro level in the UK.

PE Challenge in Partnership with the Total 14 Football Academy!

 

Craig from Total 14 has today set an online challenge to his Academy players  which includes White Rock children as he comes in to provide us with our football coaching.

 

There are 20 football teams that Craig has described only by using emojis. He has not given us the answers yet - so between us do you reckon that we can crack the 20 and send them to Craig before anybody else can?

 

To help you out, I reckon 14 is New York Red Bulls...

 

Chat to family, FaceTime your friends and see how many you can get.

Email me your ideas ileaman@white-rock-primary.torbay.sch.uk.

 

Feel free to design any others and send them to me and I'll see if I can guess them!

 

Good Luck from Mr Leaman!
