Pe Shot put

Today in Pe we practised shot put because in this first term were going to be learning and improving our skills for athletics activities  
And today we learnt 5 tips to help us improve.

1.Put the shot put in your palm and wrap your three middle fingers around the shot put.
2. Hold the shot put on the side of your neck.
3. Lift your elbow up until its at the same height as your neck
4.Now you need to push as hard as you can but make sure you don't throw it because your throw wont be recorded.
