Mrs Ham had the pleasure of teaching Year 2 PE this afternoon. The children started off by discussing why it is important to warm up and we had some great answers such as, so that we don’t pull a muscle and so that we get our heart beating fast, so that lots of oxygen can go to our muscles. We played a fun game of monkey tig to warm up and felt our hearts afterwards and noticed they were beating much faster and we were breathing harder and taking in more oxygen. 
We then had lots of fun playing several parachute games such as cat and mouse, swapping places underneath the parachute, flying animals and a team game where each team had to get the ball off the opposite side of the parachute. We cooled down at the end tucked up under the parachute and did some cool down stretches as we had been using our arms so much. Well done Year 2, what superstars!
