This term we will be learning Invasion games, using a theme around Peter Pan characters.
In our warm up we pretend to be pirates preparing a ship.
Try these commands and see what actions we have learnt.

Walk the Plank
Invasion games develop basic ball handling skills like rolling, throwing, defending, catching, kicking and dribbling a ball (with hands and feet). Why not practice some of these skills at home.
Some simple games to try are.
Rollerball- create 2 goal areas about 1 metre apart. Try to roll the ball into your partners goal area. Take it in turns and don't forget to defend your zone!
Throw and catch the ball in the air to yourself. How many times can you throw and catch in a minute?
Mirror me - roll a ball around your body and get someone to copy you!
Watch this space for more game ideas coming soon!
