In Autumn 1, Year 5 learned hockey for their outdoor PE lessons. Pupils had to understand and become confident with different types of dribbling techniques, perform close control maneuvers and apply specific grips of the hockey stick. In addition, teamwork and understanding the rules of the game were focused on.
In Autumn 2, Year 5 have loved learning all about flag football (a child friendly version of American Football). New phrases such as 'snap' and positions such as 'quarterback' and 'wide receiver' have been learned as well as techniques such as how to properly grip a flag football.
