Let’s look forward to a busy term everyone!
In Class 1 we will begin the summer term with Run, Jump, Throw as we work on our basic physical literacy skills linked to athletics. We will use a variety of equipment, hurdles, spots, quoits, hoops and ropes throughout the summer term and look forward to using the field for our lessons. Learning how to play a basic tag game and hitting a ball with a bat will complete the term along with using a skipping rope, hoop and our favourite- parachute games! As our first sports day approaches in June we will plan and practise our race!
In Class 2 we are also moving onto basic athletics skills including throwing foam javelins, bin bag hammers and running over hurdles. We will learn the various types of throws using balls, beanbags and quoits. Before this we will focus on our bat and balls skills with our tennis work from the Spring Term. Everyone then enjoys time to consolidate our physical literacy skills, tag games and learning how to play a basic game of rounders.
Class 3 will spend the start of term working on their athletics skills. We will look at the differences in running for speed and for distance, looking at how to judge and keep a steady pace. We will throw both for distance and for accuracy using bin bag hammers, quoits, beanbags, tennis balls and foam javelins.
Our games work will use a range of skills linked to cricket and rounders; throwing, striking, intercepting and stopping a ball with growing control and accuracy.
Class 4 are working towards the English School Athletics Awards and their athletics work will include; choosing the best pace for a running event, showing control at take off in jumping activities, accuracy and good technique when throwing for distance as well as always looking to improve on a personal target.
Finally playing competitive games of cricket and rounders will lead us to looking at striking a bowled ball, applying rule consistently and fairly and understanding how to implement and use a range of tactics during a game. Also how can we identify our own strengths and then suggest ways to improve. Plus a whole term of swimming at Diss Pool. Plenty to do Class 4!
