Athletics

Yay we are back at school.  Today Greg came from Sports Waikato to help us perfect our running styles.  We had to focus on:
  • running on the balls of our feet
  • keeping our arms shaped like an 'L'
  • moving our arms straight up and down as we ran
We ran some relays in teams and made sure we passed the baton on correctly by remembering to:
  • hold out the opposite hand to the baton holder 
  • call out 'run' to the person ahead of us as we approached them
  • using a chopping action to pass the baton to the next runner

  3. I am glad that you are learning correct running technique. I am excited to tell you that I just finished my first official 5K run! I had been practicing and training for a while. It was a run to raise money to support a women's clinic in our community. It took me 38 minutes - there were lots of steep hills -quite a challenging course for a beginner! My next goal is to improve my time on a 5K run. Mrs. Perez

  6. Wow that sounds like fun and hard work! We have physical education but we call it P.E in case you don't know it is like athletics but we have a small room to have P.E in so we have to fast walk or jog.Last week we learned how to throw a football properly in case you don't know football is a small three dimensional ball that you throw and tackle people.

  7. We have done some relays in P.E. (physical education). What are some of your favorite things in your Athletics class? In our P.E. class we play games like tag.

    Sincerely,
    Trey

  8. We have P.E. [physical education] instead of athletics. Instead of running, we learn different games and then play them.What games do you play?Hope you can answer!This is by Johnathan Comstock from Rotation Day A.

  9. All the stuff your are doing looks fun like keeping your arm shaped like an l. Do you think I could do that? I think I could I bet you could too. When I am playing outside with my friends and we are racing I try to keep my arm shaped like an l and whenever I do I always win.
