Watch Pupils Develop Tag Rugby and Gymnastic Skills

During the Spring term, sport and P.E. sessions will focus on developing skills and knowledge of tag rugby and gymnastics. These two sports are very different; the first is tactical and promotes the importance of teamwork and the second develops confidence and skill in fundamental movements and sequences.

In tag rugby, at Lower School level, the children are focusing first on catching and passing the ball consistently. The overall practice of handling the ball will help the children to improve their technique and ability to run, change direction and change speed without losing their balance.

In the Middle and Upper School, the children practised attacking as individuals, in pairs and in threes, which will help them to have a better understanding of the game, tactics and its rules.

In gymnastics, Lower School have started to gain confidence and independence in jumping, sliding and rolling. All of these will improve the gymnast’s coordination and gross motor skills.

The older children, further up the school, followed similar objectives in their gymnastics session, but also focused on how the children can use their core to improve body management when performing a routine. This included a forward roll, front and back support and cartwheels.

Pupils up and down the school are looking forward to their first fixtures of the term where they can practice their skills, gain valuable experience and have fun.

Watch a short video to show what the children have been doing in their sport and P.E. lessons up and down the school so far this term.
