Year 2 have been learning different types of jumps this week in PE. We have learnt the ‘tuck’ , ‘straddle’ and ‘stretch’. We practised how to take off, position our bodies mid jump and then land safely on the floor first. We then transferred this skill to using apparatus to jump from, giving us extra flight to think about the positions of our bodies.
On Thursday 26th of April, the year 2 children were treated to a taster session in cricket on the field by a company called All Stars Cricket. The children had an assembly to be introduced into the sport, even using Miss Hirst and Mr Pickerden to demonstrate! After that, we headed onto the field to do different activities. We started by passing a ball to our partners, before moving onto batting a ball as far as we could. Mr Pickerden almost hit the ball over the fence! Before moving onto a catching game. The children had a really enjoyed the session and we had a lot of smiling faces J
