Year 4 - Athletics 2017-18
Now the summer has arrived (supposedly) the pupils have started doing athletics in PE lessons. Year 4 have been working on field events on lessons, in particular long jump and shot putt. Pupils worked with a partner and used a scale to self and peer assess. For safety, pupils performed a standing long jump and a basketball for a shot putt. We have some promising athletes in year 4.
