We are back with Pirate Pete and a new set of families. We had an amazing time this week making pirate ships and eye patches. We also played a game called popping pirates where we had to dodge the rolling cannon balls by jumping over them.
This week we became Casper the cat. To help us get into character we made tails for us to wear. As families we made cat's out of the PE equipment. Take a look at some of our pictures to see the amazing cat's we made.
This week we became Tilley the Train in Family FUNS. Tilley needed to try to stay on her tracks so our families all tried balancing on a line with one foot in front of the other. To make it more challenging we tried to balancing on a line and lifting our legs up high and moving our opposite arms. We then made obstacle courses for our trains to travel over and around.
What an exciting afternoon in Family FUNS! We had a hall full of Mrs Martin's favourite animal........ cat's! Our furry friend's had fun stretching, pouncing and balancing. Our Family FUNS mascot also tried his first biscuit. If you look at our photos I think he liked it! We're looking forward to next week when we are going to be clown's.
We are on week 7 of our Family FUNS programme and have had some great feed back from children and parents. Our new book this week is Monkey Business. The Cheeky Monkey taught us a new fundamental movement skill, the static balance. This balance has helped us work our core muscles. After one activity Brooklyn said "My tummy really hurts now."
We have been visiting the enchanted forest again this week helping Ringo save the Fairies from the nasty wizard! Today we had to make a obstacle course to get to the Fairies. We had to jump, crawl and balance our way through.
Later we played our Family FUNS board game. Today we had Girls V'S Boys. This week the girls won and the boys presented the trophy in good spirits!
This week we have started a new story with different characters to help us with our fundamental movement skills. We met Ringo the Hobgoblin who is trying to save all the Fairies in the forest from the evil wizard. Children have been using their agility to catch the falling Fairies before they hit the ground. Let's hope he can save them with the help of our FUNS team!
