This term in Gymnastics, we have been learning how to do symmetrical and asymmetrical partner balances. We tried to use different levels so our balances look different. We have learnt that a good balance needs to be held for at least 8 seconds. It can be tricky not to wobble!
During ‘Wellbeing Week’ we took part in a ‘mindful eating’ activity. We first tried mindful eating ourselves, by carefully feeling, looking, smelling and tasting a strawberry when instructed. It was quite hard to put the strawberry on our tongues without eating it straight away! After the activity, we talked about how it had made us think about the strawberry much more than when we would usually eat and how it is important to think about the food we eat. We learnt that mindful eating is about listening to your body when you are full and appreciating each bite! Some of us even tried it out at home!
Victoria Art Gallery
We visited the Victoria Art Gallery to look at an exhibition and to take part in some art activities of our own. We loved exploring the gallery and trying to imitate some of the pieces, based on trips to India. We then created our own Autumn pictures using rubbings and pastels.
