In Years 1 and 2 we are looking at developing our fundamentals of movement i.e. agility, balance and coordination – as well as the importance of play, fun and enjoyment in sport and in working as a team.
We are exploring different ways of moving, we have talked to our partners and we have described to them how we moved using words such as rolling, climbing, traveling and balancing. We will continue this and also look at playing games with simple rules, taking turns and sharing.
Year 2We have expanded and developed our range of movements while travelling around a room and negotiating obstacles. We focus heavily on developing these skills in KS1 as they are the building blocks for more complex and specialised skills required by our pupils throughout their school lives to competently and confidently play different games and sports offered at school.
In dance we are looking at different styles of dance and looking at how we can combine these styles to create a group dance. We are looking at what a stimulus is and how to translate ideas from that stimulus (Superheroes) into movement, we are then concentrating on using travel, stillness and gesture to convey these ideas.
In Year 4 we have begun by exploring the idea of teamwork, the advantages of working together and we have thought about what makes a good team. We have put these ideas into practice to demonstrate that working together makes tasks easier and more enjoyable.
Year 5In OAA we will be looking at the 8 points of the compass and learning how to orientate a map, using both a compass and a point of reference. As a result we will be able to navigate a route using a map and to change our route if we encounter an obstacle, we will also look at planning our own routes for our friends to follow taking account of safety and danger.
Year 6In hockey we have looked at the various rules and have learned a number of different ways and techniques to dribble, pass and shoot. Moving forward we will begin to organise and referee our own games using the rules we have already learned.
