Active School Flag Update
This month’s Active School Flag challenge is take take fun active breaks each day. Our active school flag committee representatives are responsible for filling in the active chart and making sure that each class has active breaks every day!
Our current PE strand is gymnastics. Each class is enjoying exploring how movement can be developed sequentially as well as different actions such as jumping, turning, swinging and balancing with the control and management of body movements in increasingly challenging situations.
Our current fundamental movement skill is jumping for distance.
Jumping is the transfer of weight from one or two feet to two feet. Jumping for distance involves jumping forwards as far as possible from two feet, landing on two feet. Jumping for distance plays a huge role in many playground games such as hopscotch. It is also important in both gymnastics and dance.
Please find more information here along with some activities you might enjoy at home to practise the skill.
