This term all children in Year 2 are busy working on their ball skills for reduced sports. I am seeing good progress in this area of development but they can always improve further by practising after school.
We have started our Mini Hockey block of activities. These first few weeks the focus has been on 3 main core skills: grip, ball control, dribbling and pass and receive. Ball possession is a key skill and the pupils must feel confident to hold the ball and keep possession when under pressure.
