Along with throwing for playing cricket, we have been practicing our pull and push throws this term for athletics; developing skills that will help us with shotput and javelin sports at secondary school. We have also been refining our jumping and running techniques for other athletic events.
Over the first half of the summer term Chestnut are focusing on cricket; developing their striking and fielding skills. This week we have been using overarm throws to perfect our bowling techniques and practising how to catch the ball securely. It's great to be back on the school field again for lessons after so much rain!!
Chestnut class were set a challenging assault course to test their fundamental hockey skills, creativity in movement and ability to climb across different type of equipment. They progressed well during the lesson, supporting each other through the challenges and testing their self-awareness, as well as physical ability.
Chestnut had their first hockey lesson of the year this week. We refreshed ourselves on how to hold a hockey stick and use it correctly, then we focused on push passing with our partners.
Chestnut have worked really hard on their teamwork and communication skills during their PE lessons this half term. To end the year off they saved their teams from a nuclear explosion during a game that required a lot of intricate planning and discussion in large groups of 15.
As part of our teamwork and problem solving PE unit we have been using blindfolds and different communication methods, to direct each other through various obstacles and paths. The pupils have developed various ways to communicate between themselves and have worked hard on understanding each others' abilities and ideas.
As part of Friendship and Anti-bullying week we had a team-building, Commando Jo, PE lesson. Stranded on the sinking Titanic, each team had to save its members from drowning using a limited number of life boats to get everyone to safety. They worked really well in their teams to come up with a method that would successfully get each team member to the rescue ship, within the rules of the challenge - well done Chestnut!
Chestnut have really enjoyed PE lessons during their first half term in Year 6. We've done lots of fundamental skills practise ready for the rest of the year's games including catching, throwing under and over arm, running, skipping, hopping and kicking a ball.
