This week in PE, the Reception children have enjoyed using the apparatus to explore different ways of balancing. Lots of the children came up with some interesting and imaginative ways to balance.They used a wide range of apparatus including the benches and the balancing tables.
They mostly enjoyed the challenge of balancing on the ladders and poles. Some of the children said it was tricky but they still cheerfully tried hard. Well done!
This half term, the children in Year 1 have been improving their gymnastics skills. They have enjoyed learning the progressions towards completing a forward roll, developing balancing techniques using different parts of their bodies and experimenting with apparatus to practise jumping skills.
The children have been learning how to self-assess and peer-assess their gymnastics skills with the iPads. They have photographed and videoed each other and discussed improvements that could be made. The children have all been very respectful of their peers and enjoyed being ‘mini coaches’.
Well done Year 1, keep up the good work.
