LEE CANOVILLE FOOTBALL SESSIONS

Curriculum: All children at Edna G. Olds Academy have the opportunity to access specialist football lessons delivered by a professional coach throughout the spring term. During the football lessons the children are given the opportunity to develop and learn a range of skills. The children are also taught the importance of eating a healthy diet, learn about why they need warm up and practice cool down techniques. Children are taught about key muscle groups and learn exercises to help them to understand how to stretch every muscle group.

Teachers are involved in each session to further develop their subject knowledge in delivering key elements of the National Curriculum. In KS1 teachers have developed their understanding of how to give children the opportunity to participate in team games, developing simple tactics for attacking and defending. In KS2 teachers have taught children how to play competitive games, and apply basic principles suitable for attacking and defending.

TENNIS

Curriculum: Reception and nursery children have a tennis lesson weekly at school where they learn key skills: throwing and catching a ball, sharpen hand/eye coordination skills and develop their understanding of how to hold a tennis racket. These skills are developed further as the children progress throughout KS1 and KS2. 

Children in KS1 and KS2 are taught tennis every other week. From March- October the children play tennis at the Nottingham Castle Lawn Tennis Club. The children demonstrate that they can play by agreed LTA rules and gain an understanding of the representative markings on a tennis court. The children increase their self-confidence skills in using a tennis racket, as well as play tennis matches following the correct rules. 

Teachers are involved in each session and have developed their teaching skills, helping pupils to master basic movements, such as: running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination. These skills are being applied across a range of activities. In addition to specific tennis skills, pupils have used their understanding of how to practise flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance within all aspects to of P.E lessons.
