Sports Hall Athletics
During half term 2, we have practicing our sports hall athletics. We have been practicing our sprinting and improving our starts as well as becoming better at passing the baton and working as a team in relay races. We have been practicing our hurdles technique too. We have been practicing long jump from a running and standing start, had a go at the triple jump (hop, skip and a jump) and practicing our speed bounce. At the end of our unit, we are going to have a class competition.
In half term 5 we are practicing our gymnastic skills. In our first session, we focused on practicing different types of jumps. Here are a few examples of our work
In our next session we practiced and improved our rolls. Then we had a go putting a jump and roll together.
In our next sessions, we practiced linking our jumps and rolls together and practice handstands and head stands.
