This half term we have been learning the sport of handball. We have really benefitted practising our catching and throwing skills and enjoyed mastering new rules such as having only three seconds with the ball in our hands - this has made us sharpen our decision making. We have found the game really exciting and fast paced.
In hockey, we have been working hard on developing our close ball control by ensuring we use the correct grip and stance with the hockey stick. We tested this skill by playing King/ Queen of the Ring where close control is essential. We then moved on to focus on the push pass and practise how we generate power with the push pass by stepping into the shot. We then progressed this further by cushioning a received pass and then straight into a push pass.
Tennis in PE!
We have been trying tennis this term. We started by working on our grip and eye, ball and racket coordination before moving onto perfecting our forehand and backhand stroke.
Some children in class have been participating in the Bikeability programme. Today they sharpened their handling and control skills before looking to take those skills onto the open road tomorrow.
Sports Day Fun in Class 5!
Year 6 children loved leading the activities and helping the younger children. The sprint races at the end where a particular highlight for many. Thank you to all our parents/ guardians that could make it to cheer the children on.
Real PE (Gym) - Creativity
This term we have been working on being creative in PE through ball and gymnastic skills. Combining various movements, shapes and holds with balls and other equipment to music. We challenged ourselves to work in small groups.
Team work makes the dream work!
15th March Class 5, along with Class 4 and 3, enjoyed a day focusing on extremely important team building skills. Each class was split into three groups and they had to complete various team challenges. Once completed, a clue was shared with the group to narrow down the suspects for who kidnapped Kevin the Lamar. Everyone had a great time and learnt a great deal about each other.
