Healthy Heroes

This half term in PE, Year 1 have been playing games and developing their confidence and competence in fundamental movement skills.

Today on St. Patrick’s day we worked on our under arm and over arm throws. We started by warming up moving around the playground as different animals- using our imagination and bodies together.  Here we are stomping like elephants and prowling like lions!

We then discussed different techniques and which throw would work best in different situations.

Next we played a competitive game in teams, using both techniques to score as many points as possible. It felt great to be outside in the sunshine!

How you can help at home:

Create your own point scoring game at home using under arm and overarm throws. Challenge a family member or friend!
