Athletics Time

28 October 2022 | Physical Education

All classes were very busy in September & October when the PE focus was on the Athletics Strand.

All classess participated in a wide variety of Athletics activities, mainly from the PSSI lessons during the months of September and October. These included walking, running, jumping, using hurdles, throwing and much much more. In the videos below, you can see 5th class trying out some hurdles and also running a relay to make a hula hoop tower. 

Infant classes were focussing on the Fundamental Movement Skkills of Walking and Running, while all other classes were focussing on Striking With an Implement. Tennis Racquets and Hockey Sticks were used to practice these skills.

We are all looking forward to the Dance Strand for the next two months!
