National Fitness Day – Herons | 22 Sep 2021

Today is National Fitness Day. Herons took part in the ‘In It For a Minute Challenge’. We enjoyed running, dancing, planking, flying like a bird, jumping, balancing, throwing and catching a ball and hula-hooping!

In maths, we have been practising counting in steps of 2, 3, 5 and 10. Today, we made spiral number snakes. We decorated the snakes, wrote out our chosen number pattern, cut them out and practised reading the snake’s number pattern out loud, forwards and backwards. A fun morning! Take a look at our pictures below.

This half term our topic is ‘The Magic Toymaker.’ In PE, we have been focusing on Toys that tidy up! We created and developed a variety of actions and movements that travel and change direction and speed. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1uldwP8zt-t4k3baeRJE4vGZweGnAn-8O/view?usp=sharing Can you work out which different toys we have acted out?!
