Throwing and catching .

Today, during PE we have have been practicing catching and throwing using a bean bag. We learned to use big eyes, big hands and to pull the beanbag to our tummy as we catch it. First we worked alone and then we practised a game where we threw the beanbag to a friend to catch.

How high can you throw a beanbag and then catch it?

Sponsored Skip.

Over the past half term we have been learning to skip so we can take part in a sponsored skip to raise money for the British Heart Foundation. We all enjoy helping others less fortunate than ourselves and this will be the third charity we have supported this academic year. Today we skipped for 10 minutes. It was very hard but we were determined to complete this challenge.

How much money have you raised for the British Heart Foundation this year?

As we cut up the fruits we talked about how they were the same but different. We also talked about why fruit is good for us. The fruit salad was delicious. The mint was scrumptious!

Which fruits would you add to a fresh fruit salad?
