Children in UFS have enjoyed PE sessions with a sports coach this half term. The children have been developing a range of skills such as coordination, running, jumping, spatial awareness and changing direction. They have also started to develop their ability to dribble, roll, throw and catch a ball.
This half-term, the children have learnt how to: correctly hold a basketball using 5 points of contact; accurately move whilst dribbling the ball; pass the ball to a team-mate; shoot with accuracy to score a point and they have played in mini class tournaments. The children have worked hard to increase their awareness of finding space in order to move the ball between players and score points.
