Since coming back from lockdown the PE dept. have introduced Karate into the curriculum with a special focus on the year 5 and 6 challenge time. Year 5s Lucy and Katy told us more about their first session:
"In Karate Challenge, we have been learning how to do the Japanese martial art karate. We have also been learning the Japanese numbers up to 4, (ichi, ni, san, shi). In our lessons, we learnt how to do forward stance (a way to stand in karate) as well as a few other different stances! It was a really fun lesson! Our sensei (teacher in Japanese) was really easy to follow and we all learnt loads. We’ve only had one lesson so far but we are looking forward to learning more karate this year!"
