In this unit children develop the range and quality of their skills and understanding. They learn how to play the different roles of bowler, wicket-keeper, backstop, fielder and batter.
In all games activities, children have to think about how they use skills, strategies and tactics to outwit the opposition. In striking and fielding games, players achieve this by striking a ball and trying to deceive or avoid fielders, so that they can run between wickets or around bases to score runs. When fielding, they try to prevent runs or points being scored.
