Our class have been learning the P-Buzz instrument since the beginning of the school year. We have progressed really well - learning different notes and playing them together to form a song. Have a look at a video from 17.01.22.

PE

During our PE lessons, we are currently learning skills to be used for netball. The children have been playing mini games of handball where they must learn game specific movement. They have had to learn to communicate effectively within their team to create plays in the game. The children have also really enjoyed trying to throw the ball into the goal!

 

Our lesson this week (18.01.22) focused on our throwing skills again but the goals had a barrier that attackers and defenders could not cross.
