PE and Sport in Welbeck Class

Week commencing 20th January 2020


In P.E today Welbeck Class warmed up with a game of ‘Sharks’. 
The children have used their passing skills and communication skills within a team. They were in two teams (defenders and attackers). The attackers had to pass the ball to each other while one defender tries to intercept the ball. If the ball was intercepted before 5 passes had been made another defender came on to play, continuing until all defenders are in play. The children used a variety of different throws really well and looked carefully for clear spaces for their team members to pass them the ball. 

Week commencing 13th January 2020


This week in P.E we began by warming up playing the smugglers game again. The children really enjoyed this and found that they were more focused if they were quieter.


Once warmed we the children practiced passing the ball in partners using different passes such as; chest pass,shoulder pass and bounce pass. Also thinking about making a target with their hands to show they were ready to catch. The children then got into groups of four or five, each being numbered. Then passing the ball in numerical order and back again using a pass of their choice. To make it more difficult the children progressed onto moving to a new position once they had thrown the ball to someone else, again using a pass of their choice. Good communication was needed as was throwing and catching skills.

Week commencing 6th January 2020


IN P.E this week to begin with Welbeck Class have played the invasion game 'smugglers'. This involved having two teams; smugglers and goodies. The goodies had to put the correct colour bean bags into the correct colour hoops, while the smugglers had to steal them and put them into the wrong  colour hoops. 

Next they practiced dribbling a ball trying to look ahead as much as possible while listening to instructions of when to change direction and focusing on good ball control. After that the children worked in pairs dribbling the ball through as many gates as possible in a set time still using good ball control and dribbling skills. They also used different variations such as passing the ball through the gate three times before moving to another gate and changing who dribbles the ball each time.

Week commencing 18th November 2019


In P.E this week we have played hockey again with Tony. Before we started we warmed by running up and down the playground a number of times, then we did knee claps, side steps and heel kicks. Once we were all warmed up we played mini tournaments again but in different teams to last week. It was really good because we were all doing something at the same time until our team was knocked out. We all had a good time working together as a team to play hockey. 

Week commencing 11th November 2019


In P.E this week we have had lots of fun with Tony playing hockey. The playground was split in half so we could have four teams playing mini matches at the same time. This worked really well so we could have a mini tournament between the four teams until there was a winning team. Everyone really enjoyed playing hockey. 

Week commencing 4th November 2019


In P.E this week we have had lots of fun continuing with team games. We had to think about working with our team members, giving encouragement and direction. We used lots of different skills including: speed, balance, agility, precision and accuracy when throwing, catching and passing. Everyone worked really well with their team members, giving each other lots of support.

Monday 7th October 2019


In P.E this week we have played team games. Working on speed, agility, accuracy and balance. We had to weave in and out of the cones to collect tennis balls from the hoop at the other end, bring them to our team and then return them to the hoop. We also did this balancing a bean bag on our head, still trying to be as fast as we could. It was a challenge! The game Past the Team was fun, trying to keep our own side of the cones free of balls. Rolling them back to the other team as soon they came onto our side of the cones. The aim being to have as few balls on our side as possible at the end of the game. Everyone enjoyed a game of Hop and Hoop, listening carefully to the number being called out then trying to get into a hoop with that number of children. The number of hoops reducing as the game progresses making it more difficult each time.

Today in P.E  we have been continuing with our football skills. Practising everything we have been learning over the past few weeks to begin with, before we had a game of football. During the game we demonstrated  good term work passing the ball to each other while communicating clearly. We used all of the different skills we have learnt making it a relay exciting game of football.

Today in P.E. we have been learning to take free kicks, penalties and corners in football. We have been learning to shoot with precision and we have been learning which part of the foot is better for scoring. We have also been continuing to learn about the rules of football and the different positions to play. Finally, we had a big game of football which was extremely fun. 

Monday 16th September 2019


Today in P.E. we have been learning to develop our football skills. To start, we demonstrated excellent team work when we participated in team sprint games. We then practised our dribbling skills, making sure that we carefully dribbled around the cones and passed the ball accurately back to our team member. After that, we played the game 'Headers or Catch' in small groups. We had to listen carefully to ensure we followed the instructions correctly. There were some fantastic headers! Finally, we finished with a game of football, trying to incorporate everything that we have learnt today. 

This week in Welbeck Class during P.E we have been gaining better control of the football. Learning skills such as dribbling and passing the ball carefully to a partner. We also practised our throwing skills with accurate precision, such as throwing the ball through a hoop. The class enjoyed working as part of a team. 

Some of the children during our whole school creative curriculum afternoon enjoyed taking part in team games, whilst others did outdoor learning, design and technology and drama.
