At the beginning of this half term the children have practised getting themselves changed for PE.
The children have played lots of games in our PE lessons to learn a variety of new skills including carrying and stopping a ball, rolling and aiming.
This week two Ju Jitsu instructors visited school to offer taster sessions to each class. Year 1 learnt some simple moves used in the martial art:
"We had to use a kick to try and push the instructor over." - Kyle
"We had to use our hands to block our partner." - Faith
"At the end of the lesson we had to bow to our partner." - Jenson
This half term the children are working with Tanya from South Ribble Sports Development to learn all about Gymnastics.
The children have learnt:
Over the last several weeks 10 children from Years 1 and 2 have worked with Sian from South Ribble at Cheerleading Club. They have learnt lots of different moves to put together a routine. During the last session of the club the children invited along their parents to watch their show. They did a super job and we are now looking forward to incorporating it into our Infant Nativity production! Thank you to everyone who came along to watch.
Preston North End
This half term the children are working with Chris, a coach from Preston North End. He will be teaching the children the fundamental skills that they need to be able to play and participate in a variety of sports.
During our first lesson the children learnt lots of different ways to move a ball e.g. by throwing, catching, kicking and trapping. Our lesson took place outdoors and the children had lots of fun working with a partner.
