Class 5/6 have started a new unit of PE, trying their hand at fencing. Under the expert guidance of their coach, Ryan, they have been learning about the history of the sport, the rules, tactics, and the names for the different pieces of equipment and places involved in fencing. Even in the early lessons it has become clear that there is a great deal of skill and athleticism involved in the sport, and some of the class are showing a real natural flair for it. After a few weeks of training we will be putting together a squad to represent the school in a fencing competition. Watch this space for details of how the training goes and how we get on in the competition.
