During PE this first half term we have been learning the skills and rules of pop lacrosse with Mrs Paton which culminated in an inter house competition on the last week of term.
We have also been learning about orienteering with Mrs OMalley, how to read a map and recognise signs and symbols on an orienteering map.
Spring Term PE Lessons
After Christmas we are doing both our PE lessons inside due to the cold weather. Mrs Paton will be teaching Real PE focusing on agility and reaction. Mrs OMalley will be teaching WW1 Dance which will also be lead by some of our dance leaders from the class.
Then after half term Mrs Paton will be teaching gymnastics and focusing on balance and partner balances followed by flight, jumping, shape and apparatus.
On a Friday we will be doing an hours session with Ash from SUFC and we will be learning the skills, tactics and all the rules for basketball. At the end of these sessions we will have a year 5/6 Inter house competition.
Spring Term 2
This term we are looking at Darwin and survival as our topic and during PE we are learning how to work as a team. How to communicate and give instructions and think logically about working things out. Using strategies and perseverance.
