Year 2: Stay Active Session

On Monday 29th April, our Year 2 children took part in a Stay Active session provided by the Sports Partnership. Kirsty (from the partnership) came to Tanners and led a multi-skills session that taught the children an array of new skills and consolidated previous learning. We look forward to welcoming the partnership back to lead a Year 6 session in Summer 2!

 

Year 3: Athletics Competition

Year 4: Tennis Competition

This half term, we had four amazing children from Year 4 attend a tennis competition at Denham Way Tennis Courts. Despite the downpour of rain, Archie, Amelia, Mariah and Andy represented us and did so in style – putting their learning from PE into practise!

It was a very close competition in which we made the semi-finals but were pipped to the post by 3 points! We are incredibly proud of their talent and their sportsmanship as all of the children stayed until the end to watch the final and applaud the winner.

Well done children!

Year 3: Healthy Heroes

We were lucky to have Miss Brown from the Three Rivers Sports Partnership come in to talk to us about being healthy. We found out there are three types of healthy; physical health (our body), mental health (our brain) and social health (being a friend). We now know that we have to be healthy in all three of these areas to be fully healthy. 

We also looked at what a balanced meal is. We know that we need fruit and vegetables, protein, dairy, carbohydrates, fats and oils and sugars. We identified a different colour for each part of the balanced meal and we played a game to collect cones representing a balanced meal in teams outside. 

We had great fun and know the importance of exercise and a balanced meal in keeping healthy.

Play Leader Training - Friday 13th October

Today, the children were joined by Mr Harrington from the Sports Partnership, who provided the class with training to become play leaders. The children discussed what qualities a good play leader should have. They were then given an opportunity to devise their own active games. In the afternoon, the children demonstrated their game to the Y1 children. The children learnt valuable skills that they will be able to use, after half term, to support the key stage one children with playing exciting games at lunchtime.

Netball Tournament

Our netball team travelled to Parmiters to play in a tournament between Tanners Wood, Abbots Langley and Divine Saviour. All schools were very excited and warmed up with the much larger netball posts! All teams did extremely well and there was a high standard of play. After two matches, Tanners Wood had won one and Abbots Langley the other. If we won the third and final match against Divine Saviour, we would be one step closer to the finals………. We did! We won! So we are one step closer! Well done to Frankie, Tom, Tayiba, Max, Jessie, Izzy, Eleanor and Kara-Jane.

The final scores were:

Tanners Wood 9 – 5 Abbots Langley

Y5 Fun Run

Wow! What a valiant effort by all Year 5 pupils during this year’s fun run. Super behaviour and excellent perseverance was displayed by all members of Pine and Rowan class. Even though, it was only Tanners Wood and Divine Saviour who took part, all children tried their best in the “Elite races” and “Fun Run” and finished the tough course. All the Year 5 children should be very proud of themselves. Congratulations to Joseph and Lola who won their elite races and well done to the other children who were placed in the top ten. These children will have the opportunity to join Watford Harriers for a special event in Cassiobury Park, next year. I will be in contact with the parents of the children who received a medal as soon as I have the information.   

Basketball

Seven very excited Y6's made their way to The Reach Free School to take part in a basketball tournament after school. They played three 5 minute matches in the tournament against other schools in the sports partnership, schools that have beaten us in the past. Ryan, Toby, Jessie, Izzy, Tayiba, Max and Henry played amazingly well and were such a credit to our school in their behaviour, positive attitude and team effort throughout the tournament. We won all of the matches in our group; 8-0, 4-0 and 8-0. Then we found out we were in the final against Yorke Mead School who were the winners of their group and we had spotted as a very strong team. We continued to play well in the final and we won!!! 10-2! The opposing school's teacher said how well our team played and we replaced hand shakes with elbow bumps at the end. In addition to the games competition, there was a ‘how many baskets can you get in 5 minutes’ competition, we came joint 2nd in this with 22 baskets. The winning score was 23!

 

 

Game On Sessions

On Tuesday 9th and Thursday 11th November, we used part of our PE premium funding to invite a specialist sports club – Game On – into school to teach us new skills from YN to Y6.

In EYFS, Nursery and Reception played activities encouraging hand-eye co-ordination which they loved! In KS1, Y1 and Y2 played Tag Rugby. They loved learning how to catch and throw a rugby ball. In KS2, Y3-Y6 played handball. They loved learning a different sport.       

Please look at your child's individual class for photos. 

We look forward to next term's sessions.

Tri-Golf Event

Y4 took part in the first competitive event since March 2020, which was held at Parmiters School. All the children were so very excited and there was a huge buzz around their groupings and which activities they would be taking part in. It started in the afternoon, so after lunch they all filled their water bottles and huddled together for their pep talks; you could feel the excitement start to build! The children loved taking part in the various activities and everyone gave it their full commitment, both during the games and as support for others! They were a credit to Tanners Wood and impeccably behaved, well done Oak and Maple.

There are three categories of teams; A, B & C.

The winners of the ‘A’ teams will go on to represent the sports partnership in the county finals and if they win that, they will go on to compete at the Schools Games in June 2022.

The winners of the ‘B’ and ‘C’ teams will receive a medal for 1st place.  

The final results were:

1st place – Oak A team

2nd place – Maple A team

 

1st place – Maple B team

3rd place – Oak B team

 

2nd place – Maple C team

Abbots Langley Tough Ten
Over 80 pupils and parents of Tanners Wood got up bright and early to compete in the 1k, 3k, 5k or 10k runs. We were all very excited and loved the element of competition. It was amazing to see so many green t-shirts in the 1k and 3k which made it much easier to see and cheer everyone on! We improved on the attendance of last year and it was so lovely to see so many EYFS and KS1 families running. Well done everyone!

A special well done to Elliot and Mia who were sponsored to take part and raised money for the Tough Ten charities and Tanners Wood School. Elliot raised a huge £90 and, Mia, a fabulous £30! At school we receive half of this, so I will be purchasing more lunchtime equipment for each class with the funds.

Netball Friendly against St Pauls

St Paul’s came to Tanners Wood to take part in a joint training session which ended with a friendly match. Both sides were nervous and excited to be able to play against another team! They had great fun and played well.

The friendly match ended 3-1 to St Paul’s. However, we all knew our positions and how to pass from one end of the court to another! Fantastic! This is really important. We have great potential for our Netball Tournament on Tuesday 30th November.
