This term, Year Two have been practising their hockey skills in PE. In their first lesson, they learned how to use the hockey stick correctly and safely. The children held the stick using two hands to ensure they had full control over the ball.
This week, the children have been practising their dribbling skills. They had to remember to not only keep their eye on the ball but also the direction in which they were travelling to avoid bumping into anybody. Even though it is fun to move quickly, the children realised moving at a slower pace allowed them to control the ball better.
Year Two put their skills to practise in a dribbling relay. They had to concentrate very hard to make sure they travelled in a straight line and kept their ball close to their stick at all times. They did a fantastic job!
