In Year 5, PE is on a Tuesday. This term the children are really enjoying taking part in their lessons on rugby with Mr Platt. We will be learning how to run, find space and hold a rugby ball correctly. Following that, we will look to run with, catch and pass a rugby ball successfully. We will then learn about match tactics in rugby, how to attack and defend well before playing tag rugby in the final few weeks. Throughout this topic, the children are expected to deepen their understanding of the rules of rugby and play games to a high standard.
Teamwork and good sportsmanship will also be a key part of our lessons as we look to further develop an understanding of what it means to be part of a team and how to play fairly at all times.
