Pupils have been developing their ability to work together during our Invasion Games block. Instead of the traditional approach of doing one invasion sport at a time we have been playing, Hockey, Football and Rugby (basketball indoors when the weather is poor), using the 'Teaching Games for Understanding' methodology to transfer and apply our skills across different invasion games. Pupils are encouraged to modify the game where appropriate in order to provide challenge for some and encouragement for others. Pupils have had choice within the block, developed their confidence, understanding and thinking skills during Invasion Games. We now look forward to developing these skills further during our Sport Education Block later in the school year.
