Year 3 have started circuit training as part of Friday morning PE. The children learnt how to do the plank position and how to do a burpie. They really enjoyed learning these new skills and will use them as part of a circuit in future lessons.
During PE this week, Year 1 have been learning about different ways of moving and balancing. This week’s lesson consisted of an obstacle course which incorporated a number of different movements and balances such as, walking like a gymnast and a crab, army crawling like a soldier, walking along a balancing beam and jumping like a frog.
During the term in PE, Year 4 will be learning football skills. In today’s lesson the children practiced keeping the ball under control using the inside and outside of their feet. We began by playing a game called body parts. Whilst the children practiced their control with a partner, Mr Patterson would call out a body part and both partners had to place that body part on the football. After this we played Hungry Hippos where each team had to gain as many footballs in their own hoop as they could. Once the central hoop was empty of footballs, the teams could then steel footballs from other groups. The chidlren had to becareful to keep their football under control and make sure their foot touched the ball 10 times on the way back to their own hoop.
Year 3 have been practicing their dribbling skills as part of football in PE. The children tried to keep the ball under control while free dribbling and moving the ball between cones. They also had to try and control their own ball whilst kicking the ball of another player out of a designated space.
