P4a take a balanced approach to gymnastics

This week in our PE lessons we have carried on with our gymnastics and have been practicing some of our balances. With the help of some excellent demonstrations from some superb gymnasts in our class we managed to do some bridge balances using 2, 3 and 4 points of contact; the frog pose and even some head stands by the end of the lesson. I was very impressed by how well everyone worked in their groups to support and look after their classmates to keep everyone safe while they were balancing.

Molly also says that she really enjoyed our warm up game for PE this week; gymnastics tag. During this game, if you get tagged you have to make one of the poses that we have been learning until someone copies your pose to set you free.

In maths this week we have all been doing vertical calculations for multiplication and addition. The rectangles have been practicing their 6 times table, the circles have been using their 4 times table and the triangles have been adding tens and units together. Everyone has been working very hard.

Continuing with our writing this week, we have been practicing with our onomatopoeia and alliteration in a piece of writing about a giant who has been asleep for a thousand years. I was very impressed with everyone’s work and loved reading all the descriptions of the giants!

Enjoy the weekend!
