Fab Friday!

KS1 had a very active Friday morning this week!

We kick started our session with a warm up with Joe Wicks:



Then we had a dance fitness session with Mrs Graves:



And finally we had a meditation session to bring our heart rates back down:


Thank you Mrs Graves!




For sports relief this year we covered 3 elements to help us get our ‘game on.’ We learnt about the heart and the affects of exercise on the heart. We put our hearts to work during our active mile. We also looked at the body and learnt about how to be healthy. Each class designed and made a healthy meal or snack. We also spoke about our soul, and how we can be calm and happy, for this we did some yoga and a guided meditation.

Please click on the link below to see pictures of the day in each year group. It was a lovely fun day for all year groups and we really did learn a lot in aid of Sports Relief and raised money.

Sports Relief 2020 – Heart, Body and Soul Day


The children in Foundation Stage had a great time developing their throwing skills in PE today. Although it was a bit windy, they had loads of fun whilst improving their throwing, aim and control.

Amazing work FS. Some Olympians amongst us I’m think.

KS1 Dance Performance

Chris from The University of Hull has been coming in to Christopher Pickering Primary School every Friday for the last 4 weeks to teach Dance and Drama to our Key Stage 1 children.

On Friday (31st January) the children performed a dance to the rest of the school. The performers and the audience both really enjoyed the performance.


Well done to our Key Stage One children! You were fantastic!

Year 5 Bikeability

Year 5 have had a fantastic week with the Bikeability instructors. We’ve had such a wonderful range of achievements and successes, from learning how to ride a bike from scratch, to riding on the road for the first time and even being able to turn right into a side street whilst altering road position and signalling. It has been amazing to see all of the children’s positive attitudes, resilience and new-found confidence in their cycling. Well done Year 5! Miss Jones and Miss Staines are so proud of you!


Children’s University Dance and Drama!

Year one were extremely lucky to have the Children’s University come in and visit them today!

First of all we played a really fun warm up game to some really funky music. We then learned a song and learned how to sign it too!

Then we played a game of caves and explorers! We found diamonds and jewels and had so much fun!

Thanks for visiting us, we’re really excited to see you again next week!

Outdoor and adventurous PE


Y4 were grateful that there was a break from the rain today so we could complete the next session of our outdoor and adventurous PE unit. We used early orienteering skills with a map of the school to find anagrams hidden around the site. We then used our team work skills to solve some of them but they were “Pretty hard!”

Another challenge risen to, well done Year 4!



This week we have been learning to throw and catch a ball. We started by warming up and stretching.

We used a chest pass to throw the ball to each other.

We also practised over head passes and underarm throws.

While our partners were throwing, we were catching the balls. We had to make sure our arms were out and our knees were bent ready to catch the ball!

At the end we showcased our skills to the rest of our class!

A busy second week back in Y5/6!

Wow what a busy week we have had! Our children have been working hard, enjoying themselves and showing an excellent attitude to learning – well done!

Some of our children attended a Tigers Trust sporting event and were lucky enough to meet some Hull City players and have their photo taken with the Premier League Trophy! 

Our Y56 football team have qualified for the EFL Cup final after five wins and a draw at their qualifying event. Well done boys! 

There has been a lot of dancing this week – first with our new dance instructor at breakfast club and then with a Flex Dance taster day. 

In English, Y5 have been hot seating as Harry Potter! 

Sewing club has started again: this term children are making bookmarks.
