Due to the typical weather conditions for this time of the year, P.E. was cancelled last Wednesday because I didn't think we needed to go in to the playground for swimming!!!! Nonetheless, on Friday, the rain managed to stay away (until home time), so we were able to go outside and learn all about handball. We related what we have been learning in Real P.E. transferring it into a sporting situation.
Several of the children in my class performed the warm up (as it was freezing outside) and we all know how important it is to warm up properly!
As you can see.....Emma, Kane and Saul were fantastic teachers to lead us all through our warm up :)
After warming up, I divided the class into 4 teams (knowing full well that we all would like to play against each other), using the bibs that Oscar our brilliant equipment manager brought down for us! After a short example of the rules, we all began to play the 7 minute games.
I know it was cold, and that the rain kept trying to ruin our P.E. lesson, but the motivation and enthusiasm of every single member of my class was astounding. Most of the children had never played handball before, but by the end of the lesson, we were all definitely experts! Even to the point of the children asking to play again in next week's P.E. lesson, and if I could start a handball club!!!

I loved P.E. this week because we learn how to play handball. I’ve got better at playing as part of a team, and really enjoying running around the playground, finding space and scoring lots of goals.
On Friday 27th January, we played handball in P.E. The team I was on was with: Luke, Charlie, Harriet and Anya. I really enjoyed it and thought my team were really good, we all kept to the rules Miss Shears taught us and had so much fun!
Such a brilliant P.E. lesson, we already can't wait until next week.....let's hope it's slightly warmer outside!!!
Happy blogging :)
