Circuits

This morning we worked our whole bodies during a very active P.E. session! We worked at different stations. There were 16 areas. We worked at them for a minute and then Mrs Horne blew the whistle and we moved on. Mrs Horne also chose partners that were working hard and they got to have a minute on the trampoline in the middle of the circuit.  For some stations one person worked for half the time and then Mrs Horne clapped and we swapped.

Annie liked the hula hoop as she is quite good at it so it is fun. Maya wasn’t keen on passing the football, which shocked a lot of the class. Alexander E really likes football so he loved that station. Samantha enjoyed Around the World, passing a weight around her legs in a figure of eight, and then round her body, as she likes lifting and is strong. Ruby found the press-ups really got her body working and made her warm. Hannah found the press-ups hard. Ethan said the shuttle-runs made his heart pound in his chest. Gavin said the star jumps made his heart race the most. Emma’s favourite minute was when she had a turn on the trampoline.

Katie enjoys circuits as she thinks it would keep her fit and healthy. Alasdair said it was fun as they got to do lots of different exercises at the one time. Emma said it was good because stations that worked you hard were mixed in with stretching circuits so you kept energy to keep going.

Road Safety Competition 2019

We are in P6!

Over the last two weeks we have been looking at the All About Me topic in a different way. We decided to learn about ourselves and each other in maths. We measured our height, our stride, our head circumference and our arm span. When Mrs Horne said we were going to put our results into graphs Shravan asked if we could do a graph looking at height and age. We made a scatter plot to see if there was a trend. We thought height might increase with age but there was no link between the two. We also mader a graph using excel.

In art we looked in more detail at our shoes creating line drawings with pencils. We used shading to show the shape of the shoe and if it was darker in some bits.

I enjoyed P.E. outside this week. I learned about dribbling and demonstrated the skills we were learning. I also enjoyed science. We have been making electric circuits and will be looking more into how they work soon!

I enjoyed writing. It was part of All About Me. I wrote about my personality and my strongest subjects and the ones I need more help in.

Science Fun Run

Today we took part in a Science Fun Run. The Sports Leaders put out obstacles and we had to answer some Science questions to move onto the next obstacle.
