During our PE sessions, we have been developing our knowledge of the principles of striking and fielding games. To do this we developed sending a ball and striking a ball. We evaluated and recognised our success and useful mistakes. The children could bowl a ball underarm with increasing accuracy, playing small games effectively; reading situations to respond quickly. E.g. catching, throwing, interpreting, with growing control and consistency. We encouraged principles of attack and defence by encouraging questions including, when you are fielding, how can you anticipate where the ball will be struck? What do you think the best position is for the fielders? What is good about your performance, and what do you think you need to do to improve your game?
