Today we have PE at school

How about trying the following moves?

 

Video Tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e62shE-xyiU



Warm Up (5 minutes): Marker Touch
Place a number of cones in a zigzag around your available space.

If you do not have cones a range of other markers (socks, jam jars, etc.) can be used instead.


You are going to use four different ways of moving moves to touch the cones as fast as you can. The more markers that you use and the larger area that you spread them over the more challenging the warm-up will be.

The four ways you are going to travel to reach the cones are jumping feet together like a kangaroo, a duck walk, a jog and a sprint.

Start off with the jog bending down to touch each marker as you pass. Then move on to the sprint doing the same. Then bounce like a kangaroo keeping your feet together and making sure that you stop by each marker and bend down and touch it. The duck walk is the most challenging move. Squat down so that your thighs (top part of your legs) are about 90 degrees to the ground and walk in this position. If
you find this position too challenging then do not bend down as much. Touch all of the cones and then repeat- that is one set.
Now have 1 minute to rest and then try to complete again even faster. If you have someone to compete against then this can
make the activity more exciting but if not it can still provide excellent warm up on your own.
Activity 1 (20 minutes):
Either using a skipping rope or without if you do not have one. If without, some light weights can help to feel like a skipping
rope.

Practise the basics from week 1 if needed:

Now revise last week’s session:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mLpCuq8MniA&t=2s
Last week’s move; Double unders, Tummy twists, Side-ways skips and Eyes shut.
There are some more technical and difficult moves so please do not worry if it is taking a while to master them.

Double Unders
The basics of this move are quite simple. You need to jump high enough and swing the rope fast enough to get it under your feet twice during each jump. This will take practise and will make you a little fatigued. More than the jump the key is to move the rope extremely quickly.

Tummy Twist
Similar basic movement to the skier from lesson 2. But rather than aiming to go out to the side you are twisting your stomach muscles to turn your leg slightly sideways on. On the next swing you will then twist your leg to the opposite side. If it is too hard to get twisted from one side to the other in a single swing then stop in the middle and do a normal two feet together bounce
before then going over to twist on the opposite side on the next bounce. Practise without the rope. Slower rope swings are
important if you want to get the full twist in.

Side-ways Skips

You have moved backwards and forwards last week now you are going to move to the side. Keeping your feet together, practice moving without the rope. You will need to push off with the opposite foot from the way you want to go. Practise going both ways. Now bring the rope in. You may need to swing the rope slower to begin with to allow yourself time to coordinate the movement.
Eyes Shut
Is exactly as it sounds. Once you are well into your skipping rhythm simply close your eyes and continue to skip at the same speed. Open your eyes if need be but try to trust your control of the rope as much as possible. It is really important to relax and
keep your form and speed the same as it was with eyes opened. You will be amazed by the control that you can have over the rope without even looking.

 

 

Today we continue with the same sounds but with some new words:

Say the sounds as you write the words.

The best ways to learn is to look, cover, write and check.

Can you put splattering into a sentence?

 

 

Walt: use adjectives

Yesterday we explores adjectives. Can you write five sentences about the following picture that describes the mood of the picture, is it exciting or calm. What does it show? How could you describe it to someone who hasn’t seen the picture?

Can you use the senses when describing the image?

 

In the following picture the penguin is not in its natural habitat…

Can you write a short story about what you think might have happened here?

  • Is the penguin lost?
  • Where is this?
  • Does the penguin and the person know each other?
  • Do they like each other?
  • What happened next?

    Walt:

  • explore survival.
  • celebrate an explorer.
  • appreciate that our frozen lands are under threat.
  •  

     

    Over this term we have learnt so much about Frozen Lands.

    We have learnt where the coldest places are and why.

    We have learnt about the wildlife and how it adapts to the cold.

It is one made by Greenpeace, an organisation that is worried about the future of our Frozen lands.

To get people to think about it they took this extremely famous composer and sat him on a white raft with a piano amongst the icebergs.

Listen as you hear the music and the ice crash into the sea.

 

Write down in your journals things you have learned this term.

Write down what you think of this video.

Write down what you think we can do to help stop icebergs from melting?

 

A final fun thing…
