Welcome to Todays PE session. This session will take around 40 minutes and is split into 3 parts. Warm up with This and That. Final week Dance and movement challenge. Bransty Ball skill challenge featuring Mrs Mclean and Ms Tinnion. Today you will be exploring a theme for your dance which we discused in our reflection a few weeks ago - under the sea. You will be combining your new knowledge regarding travelling today and adding your past weeks learning of moving to the beat, sequencing movements together and using your body langauge to help convey feelings and emotions. If you are in school ask your teachers to film your class moving in your chosen ways to the music choice. If you are at home, ask a parent, carer or sibling to film you and upload onto Class dojo / showbie after your lesson ends. We want to see what you are doing at home and celebrate it too! The ball skill challenge has 2 parts this week - an easier one with Mrs Tinnion and a more complicated Brazilian toe touch with Mrs Mclean! Any highscores, videos or photos...get them posted online too! Have a fab lesson and enjoy!
