A week in the life of Mrs Dockerty-Boor:
After enjoyable half term camps at St Hughs and Holy Trinity Primary School, when Monday came, I was ready to attack Term2!
Monday consisted of completing my folder for the Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Supporting the Delivery of Physical Education and School Sport that we are undertaking as a company. Something we are all very excited to get the certificate for as it has required a lot of hard work and effort alongside our day to day working lives in our schools. Once the folder was complete I was then able to start my planning for Term2, organisation being something we feel is very important at JB’s.
My Tuesday morning consisted of pumping up lots of footballs, ready for a busy term of delivering football. Tuesday afternoon consisted of PE lessons at Swineshead St Mary’s Primary School, with a Year 3 and Year 4 class. Our term topic is football, and our value for the lesson was determination. I then had a KS1 Multiskills afterschool club, where we played many games and activities, lots of fun was had!
Wednesday saw me travelling to Great Steeping Primary School. Due to covering at another school I had been absent in Term1, so it was very nice to see the staff and children again. Our afternoon consisted of two lessons, one with Reception, and another with Year1/2. We focused on space and encouraged children to find space; by the end of the lesson they could tell me what a good space was.
Thursday morning I did some research and then more planning for the upcoming weeks. In the afternoon I was at Sutterton Fourfields Primary School and had two KS1 PE lessons, a Reception/Year1 class and then a Y1/Y2 class. We are doing football this term, the children thoroughly enjoyed learning new dribbling skills, and how we can keep the ball under control. Mrs Collett the Executive Head popped in, and she was impressed by how good the Reception/Y1 class were. I was also very proud to learn that a group of KS2 boys had won a football tournament they’d been to that morning, they were very keen to show me their medals! The afternoon concluded with our Gifted and Talented afterschool club, we did dodgeball!
My week finished at Sutterton Fourfields Primary School, with KS2. Our term topic is football, which the children were very excited to learn! The first lesson was with Year3/4 and the second with Year6. Both classes understood our determination value very well, and were able to explain that some people may find football difficult, but that it’s important for them to keep trying! The day finished with a KS2 football club!
A great start to Term2, look forward to seeing what the rest of the term has in store!
