PE: Walking the tightrope!

This half term in PE our focus is: Cognitive Skills

Fundamental Movement Skill Focus: Static Balance and stance

Our objectives for today's lesson were: maintaining balance and then moving on to maintaining our balance and good stance on a low beam.

We had fun playing the 'mirror mirror' game, where the children had to walk along parallel chalk lines on the playground and mirror each others actions and movements whilst maintaining their balance. We did a fantastic job at this and moved on to balancing on a low beam. We needed to hold our stance for 10 seconds for us to be successful. We all managed to achieve this and also tightrope along the low beam too! 

The children reflected on their performance and agreed that they were almost ready to perform the tightrope in a circus act!
