On Monday we went on a trip with the PE teachers to the ice skating rink in Blagnac. Before we set off we discussed our feelings and they were mixed! There was nerves, excitement and curiosity.
At the rink the first challenge was putting on the heavy ice skating boots. Once on the ice there was lots of laughter. Nearly everyone fell at least once (except the teachers!).
Here are some photos and one of the poems we wrote in response to the experience!
Ice Skating Risk Takers
Skating as fast as a flash
Struggle with laces
Cold solid ice
Smooth and flat
Sharp metal blades shave piles of powdery ice
Skating as fast as the wind
Passing a fallen friend
Lend a hand and
Powdery ice on our gloves
Big wobbly helmet blocks my view
The scratch of blades on ice
