Year 9 have been learning the skills and techniques needed to succeed in volleyball throughout the spring term. The pupils have advanced their knowledge to the stage where we are now able to set up a full-scale volleyball match.
Much of our learning has been based around the three key shots that we need to make when playing volleyball: serving, digging and the set pass. Plenty of tuition has been given to help improve these techniques. Year 9 are now in a position to make a decision as to which shot is the correct one to play in a competitive game situation.
We set up a full on game in the school gym. Each player had the opportunity to try the different positions as we rotated our roles after each point. It was great to see that Year 9 are not only skilled players, but also thinking about how they can influence the game by making the correct decision about which shot is required.
