Outdoor PE lessons are focusing on fundamental movement and their ‘Agility, Balance and Coordination’. The children are enjoying applying and further developing their ABC’s and will continue to do this throughout the year.
Indoor PE is Gymnastics. We have begun by revisiting previous learning and practising ‘gym shapes’. Then they will be learning different types of rolls and balances. Each week the children will apply their new knowledge in groups to create sequences using mats and equipment.
