Holbrook Primary – Year 1

Look what we are learning.

Climbing high!

In PE we have been using more apparatus to help develop our physical literacy.

The A-frames require lots of coordination of arms and legs to climb up and over safely as well as bravery as the blue frame is over 2m high!

Again the ladder balance requires arm and leg coordination working off the ground and at a different angle than we are normally at – some children have mastered this and just walk along the ladder!

This week Mr Connolly awarded 1F the Class PE Championship Cup as all the pupils had a PE kit and could join in the lesson fully.

Friday is the next PE lesson so remind your child to bring in their PE kit or keep it at school.

Jump up, jump up, jump around!

Year 1 did so much moving in PE today all the picture I took are blurry!  Not everyone had PE kit but for Friday and next week everyone will need:- Black T-shirt, Black shorts and suitable shoes – if they are lace ups make sure your child knows how to tie their own laces!

The lesson started with my favourite warm up – the Mr Man game!  After preparing our bodies for physical activity by moving in many different ways we the revisited our jumping from reception.

If you want to do this at home why not perform a star, pencil or tuck jump with your child all landing softly on the floor!

These safe landings will be useful next week when we have apparatus to jump off!

Dancing like king and queens

Today in PE we warmed up playing the bean game and car and caravans. We had to use our working together key to make sure we did not lose our caravan if we were the car. We did this by jogging slowly and turning carefully. After, we practised our class ballroom dance. We have been learning to dance like king and queens just like Queen Victoria would have done.

Can you practise your dancing at home?

You could also have a go at playing some of the money games on ICT games.
