In this Athletics unit, children will have the opportunity to develop their existing running, jumping and throwing skills. They will be learning about an effective sprint technique including sprinting over obstacles. The children will be given opportunities to use a variety of throwing techniques, including the underarm and overarm throw to throw for both distance and accuracy. They will learn the technique for throwing the shot put (push throw) and how to do the standing long jump. Throughout the unit, they will be encouraged to try and achieve their personal best and will be working independently, in pairs, as well as collaboratively within a group.
