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.
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.
