This half term we have been lucky enough to have an external sports specialist, Adrien Penrose, work with Elm class and the Year 1 children to teach them some valuable skills for team games. These skills include cooperation, respect and teamwork as well as the more tactical and physical skills such as passing, looking for spaces, invasion and defense. Obviously, the sessions are also focused on improving fitness, coordination and strength too.
The children have been learning these skills through playing fun games. They particularly enjoyed 'Crab Football'.
Children, maybe could you teach your adults the rules for these games and play them at home together.
