Term 4 Curriculum News

Welcome back to Term 4 where we begin to focus on Hockey across Key stage 2 along with African 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.


This year in Dance we are focusing on the African Culture and how dance has developed and changed throughout the different countries of Africa. In particular 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.
