Year 3

The pupils used foam javelins to develop throwing techniques with distance and accuracy. After following teaching points they suggested possible ways to improve. 

 

Year 5

Year 5 pupils have progressed their throwing skills by developing a range of throwing techniques using the foam javelins, shot put and discus. They have been taught to throw with some accuracy and power into a target area whilst investigating and evaluating how different body techniques will result in further throws.

Year 6 Relay

The Year 4 pupils have learnt to take part in a relay activity, remembering when to run and what to do. They used markers to run to whilst exchanging a hand tap with their partner to signal their turn to run. The lessons have built on prior skills in Year 3 of learning to run at fast, medium and slow speeds whilst changing direction. 

The children in Year 6 have progressed prior skills by combining sprinting technique with baton passing in a competitive situation. They have developed an understanding of the fundamentals of relay change over and the importance of not dropping the baton. Judging speed and distance has been a focus to encourage smooth change overs.
