The children had a great time during P.E today. We took advantage of the beautiful weather and had relay races using a variety of outdoors equipment. The children were given 10 minutes "free play". They were playing on the scooters, bikes, trikes, karts and other outdoor toys.

The focus for today's football session was dribbling. The children practised keeping the ball controlled using the inner part of their preferred kicking foot.
The class had to pretend the ball was a puppy going for a controlled walk to reinforce keeping the ball close to their feet at all times when dribbling.
They then had to pretend the ball was an egg to reinforce gentle touches of the ball.
The body parts game - the children dribbled the football around the hall. Damien called out different body parts for the children to stop the ball, i.e. knee, back and foot.
Well done to the star players this week for super dribbling skills: the whole class! Damien was so impressed with every child in the class today for attitude, behaviour and skill!
Reminder: Tomorrow the class will be going to Parkhall Primary School for the Shared Education Project.

Damien split the class into 6 groups today. The children had to run to the centre of the hall, grab a ball and the group with the most footballs at the end were the winners!
The focus for today was team work. This is a very important skill to learn in sports and in everyday life, especially at this young age. Each team had to take it in turns and work together to gather the most footballs.
Well done to the star player this week for excellent team work: Adam! :-)
