The main purposes of using English in our lessons is to improve vocabulary, to communicate with each other in a comfortable environment out of the classroom.
In P.E class the students are more relaxed and they try to express themselves easily.
They are going to do the routines in English, they are going to listen the game´s instructions in English ( I am teaching first and second grade and it´s really difficult for them to understand everything), but as a P.E teacher my main goals are: kids have to move, play, and enjoy, not learning English. Unfortunately, kids in Spain only have 1 hour and half per week, P.E lessons, so I need to give relevance to the physical objetives.
The first month of lessons has just finished and I want to let you know the vocabulary that we are using in our classes:
when the teacher gets to class kids should be waiting sitting down and relaxed. Then, they must go to the line ( LINE UP), in list order, and they will go to the gym.
In the gym they make a circle (boy-girl-boy-girl...) to start the warm up.
Third : WARM UP
THESE ARE THE EXERCISE:
8) Claps your hands
9) Claps your hands jumping
10) Claps your hands jumping and spinning.
11) Run on the spot
12) We run around the court, first grade one lap, second grade two laps.
After the initial part we usually play 2 or 3 games before starting the main part of the class.
