Physical Development Opportunities

Key Stage 2

 

Have a go at some of the activities below and see how well you can do!!!  Remember, it’s all about setting yourself a personal challenge and enjoying what you do.

1. See how long you can skip without stopping. 

    - Set yourself a target eg. 10 skips, 20 skips or even 100.

    - How long can you skip for, if you can get someone to time you?

2. Practise throwing and catching a ball, on your own or with a friend.

    - See if you can do it with one hand. 

    - See how many times you can do it without dropping it.

    - How high can you throw it and catch it.

    - Can you clap when the ball is in the air?  How many times?

    - Practise some of the ball handling skills we did in our basketball unit.

    - Throw and catch off a wall.

3. Practise your swimming strokes.

   - Set yourself a distance challenge.

   - Ask a friend to time you over a distance of your choice.

   - Spend time working on your weakest stroke.

4. If you have an opportunity practice bouncing or kicking a ball with a friend.

5. Ride your bike, scooter, roller blades or have a bounce on your trampoline. 

6. Research an Olympic sport and an athlete from your country.  Display your information as a poster and we can display it!

Stay fit, stay healthy and have FUN!

ISB Fun Run 2011

 Patana Runners Get Wet and Muddy at ISB

Mud, water, hills and rain were just some of the obstacles our Under 11 cross country runners had to tackle at last Saturdays BISAC (1.1km) Cross Country Run at ISB.  It was an early start for our runners and there must have been some very nervous and worried faces when they first looked out of the window and saw how much rain had fallen during the night and was still falling.  These kinds of conditions would certainly make for an exciting and interesting race.

The students had prepared hard for the event and most had been attending the many lunch time practice sessions during the run-up to the race.  However, very little could prepare the students for what we saw when we got to ISB, a waterlogged and VERY muddy course.  These were great conditions for a cross country race and as we walked the course in the rain everyone discussed tactics and the best way to negotiate the many obstacles.

Training clearly paid off as Patana put in some gutsy and determined performances.  The weather conditions had just added to the excitement and this could clearly be seen on the faces of the wet and muddy students as they crossed the finish line.  Well done to all of our students that took part with our boys and girls both coming second overall. A special mention to Luke Abai Haddon (4th in the Boys competition), Sinead Bushell (3rd in the Girls competition) and to all our year 4 students who really did step up to the challenge and occasion. 

Finally a special thank you to all the parents that came along, with their umbrellas, to support the team.

Keep up the good work and we look forward to seeing you all next year!

Invitational U'11 Basketball Tournament

Patana Welcome Four Schools To Our Very Own U’11 Friendly Invitational Basketball Tournament 

The afternoon of Friday 7th October saw our now annual U’11 Basketball Invitational take place on our Back Hard Courts. We were pleased to welcome Wells, St Andrews, Bangkok Prep and ASB to join us in a 10 boys’ team and 5 girls’ team tournaments. This meant that we could enter a very pleasing 5 boys’ and 4 girls’ teams of our own in what was a festival of friendly basketball competition.

The action was fast and furious with many baskets being swished and many defenders standing firm and rebounding strongly. The improvements in all of the teams general and tactical play was very noticeable as the tournaments progressed and the students understood what was required to be effective. All of the players received a participation ribbon for their efforts with our Patana Tigers and Patana Black teams sharing the spoils as joint winners in the boys tournament and our Patana Tiger girls also winning their tournament.

Well done to all those who played and thank you to all of the Coaches who took a team and the parents who came to support!

Interclass Basketball 2011

Interclass Basketball Competition 2011

Last week our Key Stage 2 classes put into action the skills they have learnt in their Basketball units. Each class is divided into 3 teams, a mixed, boys and girls. A round robin between the 4 classes who have their PE at the same time is then played to determine the winner. This event is also an opportunity for students to display some of their IB learner profile attributes: communication through teamwork, principled through good sportsmanship and thinkers through applying tactics.

Year 4 jump started the competition. They play a modified version of basketball that doesn’t involve dribbling. This is the first year that the students shoot for baskets and the PE team were pleased to see great build up passing with lots of shots being taken and some great rebounding happening too.

Year 3 mat ball was next on the agenda. This is a game where instead of shooting into a basketball hoop a child is on a mat and their team mates must pass the ball to them to score a point. There is no dribbling allowed so moving into space and good decision making becomes vital. The standard of play was very high especially in the mixed competition with all team members helping each other.

Year 5 and 6 were playing on Friday. These year groups play a full version of basketball. Year 5 were dribbling around the court, looking for space and timing their passes, which was pleasing to see. This event showcased the importance of teamwork. The teams that won were generally those that could organise their subs, motivate each other and move the ball to the person who was in the best position. Well done to everyone who worked well within their teams.

We saved the best till last and Year 6 displayed the culmination of their 4 years of basketball lessons. The standard of play was extremely high, especially in the boys and girls competitions. The swish of the net could be heard above the cheering crowd. Defensively all teams were marking up on their opposite man in order to try and stem the scoring tide.

The final results were:

Year

Mixed

Boys

Girls

3

3L and 3B

3C and 3P

3L and 3R

4

4A, 4G, 4R

My class for the girls team won but I think other classes worked as hard as we did. We found it very fun and a bit funny.
