In PE, we have been learning the various skills involved with playing football. We have focused on passing, dribbling and shooting as well as marking, positional play and coaching.
Children have been practicing to control and pass the ball with the inside of their foot and to follow through with power when passing over longer distances or shooting.
We have focused on team play by working together to figure out which players are best suited to which positions on the pitch. This has led to using our communication skills to coach each other before a game starts as well as during any warm ups or matches.
We have also focused on specific terms used in football such as ‘man – on’, ‘throw – on’ and ‘down the line’.
