Pupils will work on their own and with a partner to compose and structure a dance following their own or a specific style. They will perform expressively to an accompaniment, performing fluently and with control. Pupils will then progress to choosing their own music, style and dance and performing to an audience. When evaluating their own and others dances, they will use appropriate terminology.
Pupils will combine large and small apparatus to plan and create their own gymnastic sequences. They will explore mirroring and matching techniques and incorporate these into their own sequences as well as balances, rolls and jumps. Pupils will link their sequences to specific timings. They will also combine their own performances with those of others to create a class gymnastic sequence with fluent movements within the sequence.
Pupils will take turns at being the lead in game situations, organising and delegating roles in a team game and discussing tactics to be used in order to win the game. They will make a team plan and communicate it to others. They will also explain complicated rules and ensure that the rules are followed fairly by everyone.
Pupils will compete in a variety of athletic activities including hurdles, relay races, one and two lap races, javelin, shot put,speed bounce, standing long jump and triple jump demonstrating increasing stamina. They will use skills and techniques effectively in different situations in order to improve their personal best.
Outdoor and Adventurous Activities (OAA)
Pupils will plan and create a route for others to navigate around an unknown area. When planning the route, they will take into account safety and danger issues. They will also provide a series of clues for others to follow. Pupils will evaluate others routes, highlighting strengths and areas for development. They use the constructive criticism of the route they produced in order to make improvements.
