CHESS PIECES, HOW THEY MOVE ,CAPTURE AND THEIR VALUE. 24th of october, 2021.

Chess is considered a sport  by the international olympic comittee. When playing chess we have to train our brain to develope many intellectual abilities, see connection between movements of your pieces and use memory skills to remember hypothesis. Creative problem solving also contribute to the level of an individual's chess ability. This sport helps us with our ability to concentrate, because you have to be focus on your thoughts to make the best possible movement.

Have a look at these images that explain us how to move the pieces.

STARTING OF THE YEAR. 28th of september, 2021

Hello everyone!

I am very glad to see you all again after summer hollidays and share with you another year. This is my second course in Esperanza school and as I said last september I am really proud of be working as a teacher, and even more Physical education, which is my favourite subject. I enjoy a lot doing every kind of sport, such as cycling, running, basketball, skiing, swimming, walking in the mountain or tennis padel among others.

I practice physical activities just for pleasure and health, I love to compete as well, provided that it does not turn into something very demanding. My wish is to convey all positive values of doing physical excercise and sports to my students, like friendship, cooperation, health, respect to rules, understanding how our body works, honesty, perseverance to reach an objective, patience, and also development of coordination and fitness.

Esperanza school is great, I feel very comfortable here. We have great facilities, really good people, and of course the students, who are awesome, they learn very fast. In september we have been doing some physical tests to see how we improve throughout the year.

Finally, I show you some pictures of myself last summer.

See you in the playground!!!  ;)

WHY DANCING?. 14th of february, 2021

Physical education is a great subject. It serves us to improve our physical conditions, socialise, stay healthy, have fun, learn new concepts,...

One of the contents of physical education is dancing. Dancing has a lot of benefits, for instance:

- Is a way  to know our body better, improve our balance and corporal schema, because we make movements that we have to control and coordinate them among different parts of our body.

- Improves our body lenguage, which is the ability to convey messages with the movement of our arms and legs. According to the melody , we have to move fast or slow, or is it similar when you dance rock to classical music?

- Makes our attention spam and concentration better, because we have to be focused on a melody.

- Improves our self-discipline , because learning a coreography implies effort, and we have to keep repeating it many times until we get it right.

- Through coordination when we dance, we develope a sense of correct posture which is good for our spine and avoid backache.

Finally, dancing is doing physical activity and only for that fulfils all benefits said at the beginning. So, everybody shake your hips, move your arms, stamp your feet, snap your fingers ,clap your hands, and....

DISCOVER THE FUN OF DANCING!

SKIPPING ROPE. 7th of february, 2021

Last week we have been practicing skipping rope.

Skipping rope is a very good excercise to develope our coordination of arms and legs, as well as our basic physical conditions.

Some of you take a great effort to coordinate movements. 

As usually when you learn something, at the beginning it is very physically demanding, time consuming and implies a lot of energy.

However, once you worked with perseverance to learn it, it becomes easy , less time consuming and great fun.

So, keep it up , and practice, practice, practice!

 

Take a look at this video to see what is possible.

- Press here to read the document with information about heart rate.

- Press here to read the questions to answer about heart rate (only 4th grade B)

- Press here to watch the video about how to check the heart rate.

JUGGLING

Juggling is a very important excercise because it improves a lot our coordination, and also it is a way to develope our laterality, which means the ability to use both parts of our body, for example right and left arm.

Like most of the things at the begining, it is difficult and requires a lot of effort to learn it, but once you automate the movements it is great fun, and every time you practice it, you enjoy.

Some of you has been doing juggling with only one ball last week. If you want to keep practising at home about this interesting activity, here I leave you some videos. I really recomend to continue practising on your own. Enjoy!

BODY AWARENESS AND CORPORAL SCHEMA (CONTROL Y ESQUEMA CORPORAL)

Last two weeks along with the next, we are doing activities related with body awareness. That is excercises in which the student has to coordinate movements of different parts of his body. We practised this by different means such as work-out circuits.

Also, every day we do a warm-up (calentamiento), which starts with running and jogging around the playground. In the main part of the lesson, we usually practise motor games like the one of ''corchopanes'' and usually, if we have time enough, we end up with a cool-down activity such as ''pistolero'' or ''director de orquesta''.

Developing our coordination and self awareness of all parts of our body is very important to get better results in every sport.

I leave you below a video of different circuits:

Presentation of myself

Im really proud of be working as a teacher, from my point of view is  the best job in the world.

Specially physical education , im am very keen on sports, I like to practise many sports and do different physical activities. Teaching students to run , jump, dance, hop, dribble, cooperate, juggle and bounce the ball among many other physical activities is great.

This is my first year in Esperanza school , and I hope this subject will be interesting for everyone.
