Sport @ Starbeck
During the lockdown period, we would like children to keep as active as possible. Below are links to the weekly challenges for children to try at home. Links to these are also sent out to children via their remote learning platforms.
Year 3/4 coaching with Rachel Hildreth from Yorkshire Cricket Board
Every class has had a wonderful morning learning the basic skills of throwing and catching a ball, holding a cricket bat and hitting the ball. We split into teams and took turns to bat and to field. The children had to use their mathematical skills to keep score of their teams runs. Each team had at least four innings. They are looking forward to the next session and nearly all children said they would like to play more cricket in the future!
Whole School Tennis Coaching
All our classes were able to take part in tennis coaching sessions thanks to the time given by Starbeck Tennis Club and their coaches. The children worked on ball skills and techniques used in tennis and were able to try these out with other children on the lovely all-weather tennis courts.
