    Famous Rhythm Group Called Stomp

    The children were very lucky last week when we had an exciting musical visitor in school. Ollie Timner used to be a member of the famous rhythm group called Stomp and he now runs class workshops with children teaching and playing a variety of different musical styles and genres.

    Each Key Stage 2 class had a group session where they got to play a range of Samba instruments and compose and create large compositions as a class. The children had opportunities to try all of the instruments and perform together for an extended amount of time.

    Early Years and Key Stage 1 went to a Body Percussion workshops where they learned a range of rhythmic patterns using different parts of their bodies. 

    The children were enthusiastic and engaged really well with Ollie. He was inspiring and made the sessions lively and a lot of fun. We are hoping to be able to have the opportunity to be able to work with Ollie again soon!

    Level 1 Bikeability

    On Friday 13th October, thirty three children from Year 4 took part in the Level 1 Bikeability Training.
    The training helped the children to control their bike in an off-road environment and develop
    balance and agility before they move on to developing on-road skills at Level 2 in Year 5/6.
    During Level 1 Bikeability training, the children worked towards the following outcomes:
    • Fit your own helmet.
    • Carry out a simple bike check.
    • Get on your bike, start cycling, then stop and get off.
    • Ride your bike using the gears.
    • Make your bike go where you want it to, including moving around objects safely.
    • Control the bike with one hand.
    • Stop quickly if you need to.
    • Look all around you when you’re riding, including behind, without wobbling.
    All the children worked really hard and the Bikeability instructors said that they were a credit to AJS.
    Well done to those that took part.

    Sport Ambassador Training

    On Friday 6 th October seven Sports Ambassadors, Harry R, Jaiden W, Jessica H, Ollie B, Mia J, Megan
    F and Lily B-S attended a training session hosted by Park Lane Primary School. The session started
    with an ice breaker task which involved the children finding out something about a partner from
    another school. The children then thought about what their role as a Sports Ambassador should look
    like and what jobs they might take on back at school. They also talked about taking on the role of
    playground leader and how it could be set up within their school setting. After a short break the
    children then took part in a practical session learning and teaching the rest of the group a
    playground game of their choice. The morning finished with the children eating their lunch together.
    The ideas they have come up with will now be developed in school.

    Early Years - Church Farm

    We have had a fantastic time on our first Early Years trip to church farm. We explored the sandpit and saw a range of adorable farm animals and their babies. Then we all went on an exciting tractor ride learning about the different animals and their environments and took part in a quiz. Finally, we had a little play exploring their exciting play areas before heading home. We all had a fabulous day in the sunshine and are all feeling very tired! Thank you for your continued support in making this trip possible

    Year 3/4 Quadkids Athletics

    Year 3/4 Quadkids Athletics

    On Friday 23rd June, it was the turn of the year 3/4 children to take part in the Quadkids Athletics Event at Cromwell Community College in Chatteris. There were 8 teams competing from Chatteris, Wisbech, March and Whittlesey. Teams were made up of five boys and five girls. Each member of the team competed in a 50m sprint, 400m long distance, standing long jump and a howler throw. Depending on the time or distance the children were allocated points. The points were then added together to give a team score. The children all did an amazing job putting maximum effort into each event. The overall result ended with the AJS year 4 team coming 3rd and AJS year 3 team coming 5th. Well done to all that took part. Special mentions go to Emily G who came 3rd overall and Oakley R for coming 2nd overall in the whole event.
