RSE DAY 2022

Date: 30th Jun 2022 @ 12:04pm

Celebrating Differences - Everyone Can Sparkle! is the theme for RSE Day this year. In Year 2 we watched a live assembly and spoke about what made us sparkle and what makes us unique.  We made 'sparkly' flags to celebrate our differences and created a class paper chain too!

In PICTURE NEWS we watched a video about the 'Monk Skin Tone Scale' which is being used to help the Google search engine be more inclusive of different skin tones.  Crayola have created coloured pencils and crayons to reflect a wide range of skin tones and we used these to create our own self-portarits.

Sports Week 2022 - RACE FOR LIFE!

Date: 17th Jun 2022 @ 3:51pm


This week has been Lyme's sports week!

During the week, the children were exposed to a few sports that they may not have chance to play outside of school. One of the sports the children played was Ultimate (Ultimate Frisbee). The children loved the fast pace of the game and how they have to work as a team to get the frisbee over the line! Another sport was Orienteering. This sport was the polar opposite to ultimate frisbee. Children had to use maps to navigate around the school grounds and find a number of markers. When they found a marker, they would stamp the special pattern onto their sheet. When all of the markers had been found, the children returned to their teacher. Lastly, KS1 were introduced to Boccia. This is a game similar to bowls. However, it is played sitting down. This game is played in the paralympics at an international level. The children enjoyed the game and loved trying to get their balls as close as they could to the marker. 

On Monday, Year 6 played at a football tournament were top goal scorers in the entire tournament. Unfortunately, they were knocked out on penalties in the semi-finals. This doesn't reflect how one-sided the semi-final actually was. Lyme hit the post and bar several times but again, unfortunately, luck wasn't on their side. I would like to congratulate Year 6 on their effort during the tournament and in particularly their behaviour which was fantastic throughout. 

On Wednesday, we had a visit from Tara Jones and Katie Mottershead who both play for Saints women's team. Tara is also an England international and is in the squad again to play France tomorrow (on Skysports Arena, 18th June at 5.30pm). Tara and Katie were inspiring and a lot of the children were lucky enough to get their picture taken with the pair. 

Lastly, the whole school took part in the race for life today. Each pupil has trained all week to perform this race and they should all be so proud. Every child that completed the race received a medal for their hard work. 

Congratulations to everyone on a fantastic sport's week. We hope you enjoyed it!
