In PE we have started learning how to fence. This week we were taught how to position our feet, the on guard position, the attack position and how to salute.
We also learnt how to correctly wear the kit and tried our first duel.
This week in PE the girls learnt how to but their body armor on. We learnt to pronate and supernate the blade. This means rotating the blade with your wrist instead of waving the sword side to side. Sometimes we tried to lean forward to touch our opponent but this meant we could be touched ourselves. When you are touched by your opponents blade, we shout 'touche'.
