New PE Unit “Balance”

【NEW PE UNIT】 Today was the first day of our rock climbing unit at the Kozu Rockfield. The students were introduced to the basic principles of climbing and how they will keep each other safe. Weight distribution is one of the most important aspects of climbing. The objective today was for students to be able to correctly distribute their bodyweight while moving and maintaining balance. The students also learned and utilized flagging. This is a technique used for counter-balancing. If a student reaches with their left arm, they will naturally counter-balance with their right leg. Students were able to stabilize their position as they progressed up and across the walls. Today's class was a great challenge for all students and especially for the first time climbers. -From Mr Kevin
