Tuesday

READ THE YELLOW & ORANGE BOXES AT THE TOP

PE/Games (from Mrs Woodhouse) Using what you learned during our hockey lessons, you need to write a set of instructions for a simple activity.

In your exercise book write some simple instructions which could be played in pairs or in small teams.  Remember to include the equipment needed (such as cones or goals) and how the scoring could take place.

Make sure you include some instructions for players so that they know how to hold the stick correctly (which hand needs to be at the top or bottom) and how to stop the ball successfully before passing or dribbling.

What could you do to make the game more challenging or easier to play?

You must remember that the person reading the instructions will need to be given very specific instructions to follow as they may never have played hockey before.
