Gymnastics - Balance

This week in PE, we continued our gymnastics topic, and for this lesson, we explored the different ways we can balance, using both small and large body parts.




We explored so many different ways we could balance using different parts of our body, and all of the children were being very daring and were trying to find the most creative balance.....and then holding them for 5 seconds without falling over!

After working in pairs, we then moved onto groups of 4, to explore the types of balances we could make together in a group (as well as continuing to be creative with these balances.)




All of the children worked fantastically well together and amazed me with their creativity. Next week, we will be moving onto the different jumps we can do in gymnastics, as well as using the balances we have learnt today in order to create a routine. Lots to look forward to, so keep checking back for updates :)

Investigating Maths

I asked the children : How many equal groups can you make from 30 cubes?

They were tasked with finding all of the different equal groups they could make (as part of our multiplication and division learning)

We had some fantastic discussions about their knowledge of times tables, and why certain numbers wouldn't work.....





All of the children worked amazingly as pairs, and we were able to have some brilliant discussions......all of the children were able to write multiplication and division related questions according to how they had shared their cubes......such fantastic effort by everyone, well done!!!!
