Unit 3: Games activities (1)

About this unit

In this unit children develop basic game-playing skills, in particular throwing and catching. They play games based on net games (like tennis and badminton), and games based on striking and fielding games (like rounders and cricket). They have an opportunity to play one against one, one against two, and one against three.

In all games activities, children think about how to use skills, strategies and tactics to outwit the opposition.
