In term 4 we begin to focus on Hockey across Key stage 2 along with Dance in both Key Stage 1 and 2. The pupils in Hockey will be focusing on how to invade space using different types of 'close' and 'open' control of the ball and learn how to pass and reverse pass using the correct hand position and side of the stick. We will also be playing small sided games that develop the techniques above whilst getting ready for the annual Quick sticks and Junior Hockey Competitions.
In Dance we will begin to focus on different styles of dance bases from different cultures and how dance has developed and changed throughout the different countries. Last year we are incorporating Dances from Rwanda, Nigeria and Kenya in the form of Afro pop dance called 'Azonto', 'Kukere' and 'Sekem' which are popular dances involving jumping and sliding movements. This year we will again follow a theme around our specialist areas of Art and Music.
