In this unit children learn how to hit or strike the ball into spaces, so that they can score runs in different ways. When fielding, they learn how to work together to keep the batters' scores down.
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.
