This week in PE we applied our skills moving with and passing the ball and worked on increasing our awareness of team members and the opposition. In one activity we worked in pairs dribbling forward and shooting a basket then the opposition collected the ball from the rebound. In another we used a rugby ball and had to drive the ball forward through our area while the opposition tried to block us. When we successfully made it to our end line we passed to the next member of our team until we reached the end and scored a try. In our final activity we worked in teams of five, marking a member of the opposition who were trying to pass the ball five times to score a point. If we intercepted we tried to pass five times.
We realised when playing another team we have to be aware of where the person we are marking is, but also who has the ball and where it is going next. It is a lot to think about!
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.
