Transition:

We will do our best to keep you updated with transition and will review this section on a regular basis. We have been in contact with all the secondary schools to pass across relevant information and are aware that many of them are planning virtual transition events. 

 

Our PSHE in Term 6 will focus on transition (these sessions will be accessible online via the Google Classroom). If you have any questions then please do not hesitate to send either Miss Hawksley or Mrs Simmons an email and we will do our best to help.

 

Currently, these schools have posted further information on transition:

This week, we broke a Tiger Troop record… we now hold the record for standing still in drill for a record…3 minutes! Sgt Rose was very proud of us!

After drill and exercise it was time for…Sumo challenge! We paired up and went head to head with each other – it was so much fun! Please see our great pictures on the board to see what a great time we had!

This week’s NCO’s were Fynn and Max and three cards were given out for excellence this week:

  • Gabriel - Improved exercise and strength

Session 4:

Monday 10th February 2020

After a talk in the classroom about behaviour and expectations Sgt rose announced this week’s NCO’s… HOLLY and LEO!  Sgt Rose led Tigers through their drill, which he said was one of the best he’d seen! In addition, the troop were able to stand to attention for 2.5 minutes! If they are able to stand for 3 minutes in the next session they will hold the record for longest standing to attention in drill!

After exercises, it was outside where Minefield was played and both teams passed! Next, we had best of three in Tug of War. Tug of War was great fun – we got very wet and muddy!

Three cards were given out for excellence this week:

  • Harvey – Excellent Drill
  • Mason – Always Following Instructions
  • Max – Strength and Determination

 

 

Tiger Troop 2020!

 

 

Week 3:

Monday 3rd February 2020

Today’s session focus was on INTEGRITY and the Tigers had to unpick what this word meant and how we could describe ourselves behaving with integrity. Next, we were pleased to announce our NCO’s for this week – CHLOE and KAMERON! After learning a new piece of drill, it was time for – EXERCISE! We were really put through our paces this week! Next, came outside missions: Mission 1 was to memorise 12 pieces of kit and – after a gruelling relay race – remember and describe them! Mission 2 was ‘Human Battleships’ which we all enjoyed greatly!

Aavam completed last week’s challenge and came up with a name for a ‘spork’ that also has a knife on the fork edge – he named it the SFORK!

 

Two cards were given out for excellence this week:

  • Bailey - Strength and Determination
  • Leo - Following Instructions 'Shining'

Week 2:

Monday 27th January 2020

After a recap from last week’s session, Sgt Rose put Tigers class through their paces with drill and exercise. We then repaired outside where we had to complete a team building game, working together to collect and lay out kit then putting it back. The results were close!

Our challenge this week is to come up with a name for a ‘spork’ that also has a knife on the fork edge – an essential piece of kit when out in the field!

Next week, Sgt Rose will be selecting his NCO’s: keep checking the board for more news!

Three cards were again given out for excellence this week:

 

  • Aavam Pariyar & Casey Whiting: Great strength in exercise
  • ​​​​​​​Kameron Robinson: Following instructions promptly

Tiger Troop Week 2

Week 1:

Monday 20th January 2020

Today was our first session with Sergeant Rose! First, we had a ‘meet and greet’ session in class where Sgt. Rose laid down ground rule, expectations and outcomes for the course. Next, we were invited to stand up, say our names and what our favourite film was as well as an interesting fact about ourselves. That done, we relocated to the hall where we were taught simple elements of ‘drill’. We did really well! After drill, was PT, where we were put through our paces by performing planks, push ups and sit ups. It was really hard work!

Three cards were given out for excellence and effort this week:

  • Ava Moore
  • Harvey Ottley
  • Holly Robinson
