Games/Ball Skills

In Games/Ball skills children begin by showing basic ball control which includes throwing the ball in a number of ways and beginning to demonstrate hand-eye co-ordination when passing or receiving the ball. Moving on from here, children begin to develop an understanding of tactics and how these can be communicated to their fellow peers in competitive situations. Moreover, children use their skills with sound degree of co-ordination and control  e.g. catching a ball whilst in a moving position. As the children progress into KS2, children demonstrate the skills learnt but do this to much refined, stable and fluent manner. Additionally, children confidently adapt their tactical knowledge depending on the type of competitive game they are involved with and apply these in a fluid and stable manner.
