Year 10 have been working on improving their hockey skills during recent PE lessons. Mr Lee explained to the students the importance of safety. We also had a reminder of the rules of the game.
Three different work stations were set up in the school gym. The dribbling exercise required each class member to complete a figure of eight whilst keeping close control of the ball.
Passing whilst moving is another key hockey skill. The pupils paired up with a partner. They ran three metres apart from another, passing the ball as they went along.
The final hockey skill involved shooting and pitching the ball over a 30 cm metre bench. We have seen how this can be useful if we are trying to trick the net minder.
A full on game of hockey then took place . Mr Lee was looking for evidence of these three core skills being used. All players rotated roles. A self-assessment completed the session.
