Y5 Physical Education



In PE this term year 5 have been taking part in gymnastics. They have been learning different types of rolls and how to balance on different parts of our body. We have then been able to put these different balances together to create a short sequence. 

In gymnastics we have been learning about mirroring. We have been standing facing our partner and mirroring every movement that they complete.


This term in PE year 5 have been taking part in dance. We have been creating different dance sequences, performing snapshots and thinking of how we can connect our moves together to create their performance in dance.
