Year 3 Interpretive Dance
In year 3, we have been looking at interpretive dance. We have looked at how to move to the beat of music, how to interpret the mood, the different movements we can make and how we can travel. We then put all that we had learnt together and made a performance based on what we have learnt about Roman gladiators. Our performances were very impressive and we proved how well we can control our bodies.
Today on the 30/04/18, the children in year 3 have been practicing their tennis skills. They began with a quick-fire warm-up by competing against each other. Whichever team had the most turned over cones won! The children moved onto stretching muscles by completing balancing exercises. During the tennis lesson the children practiced their catching and bouncing skills, they worked on volleys (which means returning the ball without letting it bounce) and they also looked at using their footwork to give the optimum power.
Today 21/05/2018, the children in year 3 have been practicing their tennis skills. They began with a warm up that required them to move quickly and effectively in a small sectioned area. This helped them work on their coordination and agility. Children then worked in pairs and worked on trying to get a rally going by using different skills including forehand, backhand and volleys. Finally they finished with a game of ghost. The children loved it!
Year 3 - Running
Today on the 4th June, the children in year 3 have been looking at different speeds of running from a jog that we categorised as 1, up to a sprint classified as number 5. The children looked at different speeds for different time durations. The children worked in pairs and encouraged their partner to pace themselves and to keep going until the time had lapsed. Some fabulous pace runners and endurance!
