Activity

Football with class teachers and Hockey with RG.


Recap their previous football knowledge.

Activity

Control games – following a system of colours to pass/dribble/stop /change direction /speed up.



Activity

Control games – The ghosts (in bibs) act as defenders, aiming to tackle players, take possession of their ball and send it out of the area. Players who have been successfully tackled should then sit out and observe those players still in possession.




Activity

In a small square area, players work in fours with one player acting as a defender (wearing a bib). The aim of the game is for the players to complete 5 successful passes.




Activity

From “Piggies in the Middle”, double up the playing areas into rectangles and play “Through the Gates” approx. 4 v 4 players. Introduce two gates into the playing area (the children can choose where).

The aim of the game for the team in possession of the ball is to pass and receive through the gates to receive a point. The other team must mark players and/or defend the gates and try to gain possession.


Activity

Children work in pairs. All attackers in one line, all defenders on the other.

On a signal, the attackers attempt to get passed the defenders (to a new line) whilst the defender attempts to stop their attacker from getting passed. (NO PHYSICAL CONTACT).


Activity

Waves (Group Activity, numbers variable)

Players in possession move forward in the playing area dribbling, running with the ball and passing as appropriate.

Their aim is to keep possession and reach the other end of the playing field and pass and receive over the back line.

Defenders must use skills to gain possession.


Activity

Children can apply skills to game situations
