First though, we need to teach you a few basic skating techniques.   Games will be a lot more fun when you know how to stop and fall correctly.

Our first lesson is to learn how to fall onto our knees and how to stand up.  You all did this so well, if not a little overzealous!  By the end of the lesson you could fall on your knees without belly flopping on the floor or taking your weight on your hands and wrists.  Well done!!

The Duck Walk was our second lesson.  It looks a bit peculiar but is the basic stance of inline skating.

Next you tried out the “coke bottle”.  Skates stay on the ground and you push your legs in and out in the shape of a coke bottle.

You were all amazing this week!  We hope you enjoyed your lesson and look forward to seeing how you get on next week.

Grateful thanks to all the volunteers who popped in this week to assist with putting on skates and safety gear.
