Unit 32: Games activities - link unit

About this unit

In this unit children focus on how to use basic principles of attack and defence to plan strategy and tactics for games. They work on improving the quality of their skills, using techniques that suit the three different types of game they play (invasion, net/wall, striking and fielding) and the equipment they use.

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