Athletics - Jumping
Year 6 are looking at ways to develop their awareness and technique to use an explosive move in jumping when attempting a standing long jump, triple jump and high jump. The activity was child led. They are working in groups and complete a carousel of activities. They explained their activity and at the end of the lesson discussed if any changes could be made to improve.
Today in year 6, we had PE in the hall and had a class competition of bench ball. We had three team captains who were selected for their excellent attitude and work this afternoon in Science. As the children were so good at blocking, defending, catching, throwing and teamwork; Miss Snell decided to up the anti and adapt the rules to make the game more challenging and the children rose to the challenge triumphantly.
Over the last few weeks, Year 6 have been focusing on hockey. They have been working in partners and teams to practice control of the ball and use of a stick. They have been working on passing the ball with accuracy and control. They have looked at different styles for attacking and defensive play. The children have even learned to set up the equipment and mark out court gridlines.
Today the children in Y6 have had a PE lessons based on striking. They recapped their knowledge on how to bowl to their partners and then learnt how to use the cricket and rounders bats to strike. After practising using these different resources, they then refined their skills on striking to begin to aim and put power behind their strikes. After they practised, refined and evaluated their striking skills, they then competed in a game where the batters gained a point for each time they hit the ball but if the fielders caught the ball then their points were eliminated. A great lesson had by all.
This term, summer term 2, in year 6, the children have been having their PE lesson with Mr Bakes. The have been looking at athletics in particular standing long jump and triple jump. They have been looking at different techniques that require the use of the arms and legs in different positions that will extend the length of their jump.
