As part of our current Physical Education unit this Geordie teacher is focusing on developing student’s catching and throwing skills. There’s always a wide variety of abilities within a new class, but they’re useful skills for kids to have to further participate in a variety of other sports and improve their fitness.
I often start our lesson with a warm up activity, today being a game called ‘everybody tag’. A related skill activity follows, today’s being catching a ball below the waist.
Today’s whole class activity was dodgeball, a game of throwing, catching, dodging and the ability to duck!
