We were very lucky to be visited by the Paralympic athlete Michael Churm in school today. He represents team GB and has completed at different Paralympic Games. He is an athlete who runs the 100m, 200m and relay races.
He did a training session with each year group which left us all very out of breath!
What interesting questions did you think of to ask him? What did you learn about Michael Churm today?
Today in PE we began our new unit of athletics. We began to practise our skills of relay and long jump.
Our warm up game of dishes and domes was lots of fun!
We then looked at our technique for sprinting and worked on improving this.
Can you give any good tips for sprinting?
We really enjoyed learning about regular and irregular polygons outdoors today!
Can you explain what an irregular shape is?
We had lots of fun investigating which material would make the best parachute in order to land an egg safely.
What did we find out? What did you learn about air resistance?
We have been been reading River Story as part our our English work and looking at the devices the author has used to engage the reader.

Challenge: can you use alliteration or personification?
