This week in PE we applied our skills moving with and passing the ball and worked on increasing our awareness of team members and the opposition. In one activity we worked in pairs dribbling forward and shooting a basket then the opposition collected the ball from the rebound. In another we used a rugby ball and had to drive the ball forward through our area while the opposition tried to block us. When we successfully made it to our end line we passed to the next member of our team until we reached the end and scored a try. In our final activity we worked in teams of five, marking a member of the opposition who were trying to pass the ball five times to score a point. If we intercepted we tried to pass five times.
We realised when playing another team we have to be aware of where the person we are marking is, but also who has the ball and where it is going next. It is a lot to think about!
