Athletics and Acrosport with 5th grade

We started the term playing some cooperative games. Then we continued improving our motor skills practicing Athletics. We wrote our best mark of 5 Athletics events: long jump, high jump, hurdling, shot put and 100 meters. At the beginning of the lesson, we always did 5 minutes of stretching exercises. We learned the stretching exercises help us to avoid injuries, and they are also useful to revise the name of the most important muscles and joints of our body in English.

After that, we went on with Acrosport. With Acrosport we could improve balance, strength, and something really important, the ability to work as a team. Watch the video below to see the result.

We’ve also attached some photos we took during the first term. We hope you enjoy.
