During Autumn 2, we looked at gymnastics in PE.
First we looked at the different shapes you could make in gymnastics.
We learnt that you could use these shapes when you perform different movements in PE. We also learnt how to make the star, dish, arch and straight shapes.
We used the apparatus to learn how to jump correctly.
- Feet slightly apart
- Knees slightly bent
- Look where you want to jump
- Land on two feet
- Stand up
Can you guess which shapes we were making in the air?
This half term we have been so lucky to have the team from RuggerEds come back into school and teach us how to play tag rugby!
We braved the weather most weeks and went outside onto the MUGA pitch so that Rob, Olly and Joe could teach us some excellent rugby skills. We absolutely loved the games you taught us. Our favourites have to be Minions and Haunted House.
At the end of each session, certificate were handed out to the Trainers of the Week. The lucky winners are below.
Thank you so much to the RuggerEds team for coming into school on a Friday morning. We will miss you lots.
This week, some of Y2 were invited to an athletics event run by some students from SHU at Ponds Forge. We set off on the tram and couldn’t wait to get started. Lots of other local schools had been invited too! Once everyone has arrived, we made a start.
We completed lots of different events to practise our skills. We even had a go at some brand new activities too! Javelin was definitely one of our favourite activities of the morning.
At the end of the morning, we found out who had taken 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.
We were so pleased to hear that Prince Edward had come into 2nd place! We are very proud of ourselves and we can’t wait for the next invitation to join in with more sporting activities.
We have had the most amazing treat this half term – Y2 have been learning how to play tag rugby with the coaches from RuggerEds.
We have learnt lots about respect, following the rules and working as part of a team as well as skills that we can use such as dodging, running and how to hold a rugby ball properly.
We couldn’t wait for Friday mornings to come around so that we could build on the skills we had learnt in the previous week.
Every week, the coaches would choose some ‘Trainers of the Week’. Our winners from this half term are below…
A massive thank you to Rob and Joe for coming to school every week to teach us how to play rugby! We had a blast! 🙂
Across school, we have been thinking about how to keep ourselves healthy. We have had lots of visitors in school and activities to complete to help to promote a healthy lifestyle. Take a look below to see what we have been up to…
Yoga is a good way to exercise both our minds and our bodies. Check out our yoga moves!
If you want to do move yoga at home, look at Comsic Kids on Youtube for more ideas.
We absolutely loved our Active Mission Session with Errol. It was so much fun trying to get around all of the different activities. Our favourite activity was trying to hit as many lights as we could in just one minute! The record was 32 set by Mateo!
We got to use exercise bikes with smoothie makers on the front to make some delicious smoothies. We had to pedal as fast as we could to blend up the fruit and the yoghurt before we were able to drink them. They were really tasty and it was fun working together to making different smoothies!
Mrs Murch spent some time with us looking at PANTS. Ask your child about what PANTS means.
