Year 3 are preparing for the skipathon challenge that will be taking place at the school later on this term. We have been using our PE time to learn the basic techniques to help us with the fundraising for the British Heart Foundation.
Safety has also been an important issue. Class teacher Kate has been helping the children to stand in a safe place away from other skipping friends.
The pupils have been working in pairs. Advice and praise has been offered on the performance of our partners. Some impressive moves have been on show. These include crossing the ropes and hopping whilst we skip.
Our PE session came to an end by playing a favourite direction game in Year 3. Kate calls out a number of sailor themed instructions. The pupils have to respond with the correct action.
