Large Apparatus Lessons for the F2 Elves.
Our focus this half term has been about developing the skills needed to use the Large apparauts in the Hall.
We have been developing our upper body strength by learning how to get across the monkey bars. Part of this was learning how to grip the bars tightly, move one arm and then the other and hang on! Importantly the children were also taught how to let go and land safely.
Another important part of the lesson that we focussed on was concentration.
We talked about the importance of being quiet in a lesson like this, so that our full attention would be on using the equipment safely. The children were encouraged to watch and learn from each other.
After half term our focus will be on gymnastics and dance. For these lessons the children would be better in shorts rather than jogging bottoms allowing them to move more freely.
