Spring 1 

During this term we are swimming!! This will be an intensive afternoon course for 2 weeks starting the 17th of January and finishing on the 28th. On these days the children will need to bring their swimming costume/shorts, swimming hat, towel and goggles if you have them!  


Around our swimming blocks, we will also be completing weekly fitness sessions so we still get our active slots each week!


Autumn 2

This term our PE focus will be football in one of our sessions, led by the Arsenal Football coaches and a second session, based around fitness. Our PE days this term are Tuesday's and Thursday's.




Today, we had our first Arsenal session and learnt the term 'invasion games'. We practised dribbling with either our hands and our feet in pairs before progressing to work in a group of 4 to try and score some goals!


This week we revisited our stuck in the mud warm up and practised dribbling and passing using our hands and feet. We changed direction and speed and focussed on our three key words: look, run, control. We built these elements into lots of different games, 1:1 and in small groups. 


Our third session saw us recap and enhance the skills we were taught last week. We focussed on the success criteria 'Look, run and control' in order to achieve the aims of our invasion games. We challenged ourselves by making the space smaller so we had to control it better and used a mixture of our hands and feet to achieve our objectives!


Our fourth session specifically focussed on the 'run' element of our success criteria. We practised changing direction with and without a ball and also changing our speed through different games. 



Our penultimate session saw us revisit the three skills, 'look, control and run' incorporating these into large scale group and class games, with and without the ball, using them in different ways!


Our final session was focussed around direction and taking part in small group games where precision and accuracy were of great importance! The children worked well in their groups and practised turning and tricking their opponents through various ways of moving. 





In today's fitness session we focussed on a mixture of cardio and ab exercises, using different timed intervals. We were very red faced by the end of it! 


Today, we did another mixture of moves but mainly focussed on cardio activities. We did a range of lunges, squats, burpees, high knees, press ups and lots more!



This week we focussed on some tricky moves from previous sessions, particularly backwards lunges! We did a variety of core strength exercises and some quick blasts of cardio!



Autumn 1


Take a look below to see the skills we will be covering in gymnastics this term!


The past few lessons have seen the children learn and master a variety of shapes, stands and rolls; including, forward rolls, pikes, tucks, teddy bear rolls and forward rolls. We have also been working hard on our balances and using our core muscles to ensure we have the right body tension to succeed. 




This week we focussed on some different balances and shapes that will eventually lead to us performing handstands. We learnt how to perform cat leaps and scissor kicks and the initial stages of performing a handstand. 




As we near the end of our gymnastics unit, we will gradually build upon all the rolls, jumps, balances and bridges we have learnt and start sequencing them together to make a group routine. 


This week, in pairs, we started to work on our routines and linking them together as best we could. We also learnt how to 'present' so that we could start and end our routine properly. 




Today, we reached the end of our unit and performed and evaluate each others routines!
