In P.E We will specifically be focusing on ‘Invasion Games’. In this unit children learn how to outwit their opponents and score when playing invasion games. They develop skills in finding and using space to keep the ball. They play with the same basic court set-up and rules, but use a range of equipment and skills, including throwing, catching, kicking and striking skills. This will involve learning the skills relevant to many games with a focus on basketball. The children will also be working on fitness and stamina in a range of cross country running activities
In all games activities, children think about how to use skills, strategies and tactics to outwit the opposition. In invasion games, they enter their opponent's territory with the 'ball' and try to get into good positions for shooting or reaching the 'goal'.
