Scheme of Work
Invasion

Introduction

As in all units, pupils develop physical, social, emotional and thinking whole child objectives.

Pupils develop the basic skills required in invasion games such as sending, receiving and dribbling a ball. They develop their understanding of attacking and defending and what being 'in possession' means. They have the opportunity to play uneven and even sided games. They learn how to score points in these types of games and how to play to the rules. They work independently, with a partner and in a small group and begin to self-manage their own games, showing respect and kindness towards their teammates and opponents.

Health and Safety

Teach the pupils how to behave and move in a safe way both with and without equipment. Ensure that all equipment is stored safely when not in use. In particular, unused balls must be stored in a safe place. This could be back in bags or on trolleys, using a bench turned on the side or cones to stop them rolling.
