Real PE IN Lerryn Class 12 May 2014

We have been enjoying Real PE in Lerryn Class this term. On Friday, after a some warm up games and footwork skills drills, the children practised ‘fast walking’. They paired up and assessed each other’s fast walking skills, making suggestions for improvement along the way and then competing against their partner to fast-walk further and further in 30 seconds. It was great to see their skills improve each time they tried again. The children soon realised that driving forward with their arms made for a faster walking style. Fast walking is a very weird sport with a unique though peculiar style. Have a look at this YouTube video to see how the professionals do it. We have a way to go yet, but at least now we know what we are aiming for.
