Year 4 commenced their second week of Rugby coaching by ‘Darren’ from Colne & Nelson RUFC. They have offered up the coaching as an incentive to try to encourage more young children towards to tough and technical sport.
The Year 4s have relished the challenge and are learning lots of new key skills.
Caleb from 4M boosted, “We learned to pass the pass with the ‘swinging motion’ and catching and holding in the ‘bread basket’ position.”
Lola from 4T said, “We learned to hold the ball by the ears or belly of the ball.”
Such quirky vocabulary to help our future rugby stars learns these new skills!
Hi, my name is Mr Farry, I still consider myself very much part of a great team in a great school, we really do ALL pull together to ensure the children complete a fantastic and enjoyable curriculum. I am still the P.E coordinator (a veteran now that I’ve joined the over 40s club), and still completely passionate about sport and my role in sport at Park. I am still actively involved external sports (both team and individual) and consider this essentially to maintaining a healthy body and mind. The children will tell you I’m still the jovial and humorous person I was when I joined the school, buy I’m simply four/five years older and ‘hopefully’ a little wiser, albeit with a few stray greys! My classroom is a busy place, with high expectations whilst still maintaining a nurturing environment, especially with the kind and generous Mrs Lucas by my side. The children, thus, continue to feel comfortable and content in their learning environment.
