Over the next few weeks we will be developing our dribbling skills ready for our virtual competition.
Today we worked together to set up our obstacle course and then helped each other dribble around the cones. We gave each other tips for keeping the ball close to our feet at all times.
In PE we played different dribbling games and encouraged each other. Before each game we gave each other tips for dribbling the ball.
To start we played the numbers game. This got us warm and ready to play our first dribbling game. To start with, we took it in turns to get a ball from the centre and dribble it back to our team mates. In the next game we raced another team to dribble the ball around a cone and get it back to our team.
As a warm down we played a modified version of the traffic lights game.
At the start of the lesson we collected four cones between two people. Two cones were upside down and the other two were the correct way round. We had to get them all flipped over or the correct way round depending on which way we had picked. The first person to have them their way was the winner.
Today we were multiplying 4 digit numbers by 2 digit numbers. It was very tricky and there were a lot of steps to follow but we kept going even when we made mistakes. Some of us managed to get Red Pen Status and supported our friends in class.
