In this Athletics unit, children will have the opportunity to develop their existing running, jumping and throwing skills. They will be refining their sprint technique and learning how to work as a relay team, by practising an effective baton changeover. They will learn the technique for throwing the javelin (pull throw) and how to do the standing triple jump. The unit culminates in a class pentathlon that the children will compete in. They will be using and applying the running, throwing and jumping techniques they have learnt throughout the unit. Throughout the unit they will be trying to improve their own performance as well as helping others to achieve their personal best.
