This term our focus will be on gymnastics. You can take a look at our knowledge organiser here!
Today we had our first Arsenal coaching session. The children were learning to work collaboratively and competitively in a variety of carousel activities.
During today's lesson we revisited how we bowl underarm and how to make it go in the direction that we want it to! We then also graduated from using tennis rackets to using rounders bats to bowl and bat with our partners.
Today we learnt about the role of a fielder and how to throw and catch and catch a ball. We worked in pairs to gradually increase our distance apart to see how well we could catch the ball.
This term we will be splitting our P.E. sessions. One will be spent with the Arsenal coaches, whilst the second will be taken by the teachers, teaching the children rounders.
This term we are doing our P.E. sessions on a Thursday afternoon. We split our slot into two parts.
Firstly, we do an aerobic session to get the blood pumping! This includes a mixture of activities, such as, hopping, squatting, burpees, lunges, skipping, planking and much much more! We are focussing really hard on our technique to make sure we have the best work out. To challenge ourselves, we have been setting time limits to complete our reps and have been competing against our own personal bests and a partners. Keep up the super effort!
Our second session focusses on our core strength in the form of yoga. We have bee trying to maintain our posture and balance as we move through various positions. Check out some of our poses below!
