Every week we learn about skills and movement that will help us play sports. This term’s focus has been around defense. We made a video showing some of the goals we have been practicing. I have highlighted the thing I think I have done well YELLOW and one thing I would like to work on PINK.

WALT: Defensive skills and movements

Success Criteria:
Body Movement:
  • Weight on balls of feet
  • Feet shoulder width apart
  • Knees flexed
  • Concentration and eyes on ball, head and eyes up
  • Push hard off outside foot and go forwards to attack pass
  • Quick small feet, stay on balls of feet
  • Arms within confines of body
  • Take feet to ball
  • Land with a SBP
  • Body angled to see player and ball
  • Anticipate pass and player movement
Restrictive Marking:
  • Meet player as they start towards the ball/where they want to go
  • stay close to the attacking player
  • Head and eyes up, arms close to body to avoid obstruction/contact
  • Angle body so attacking player is ‘pushed’ away from where he/she wants to go
  • 0.9m from ball carrier

Evaluation:I think I did well because I landed in a stable positionm. But I could work on having my body angled to see both the player and the ball

Feedback/feedforward: good job Loki you landed good but you could work on catching the ball when you intercept. Thomas.

Discovery Time

Description: Today we did Discovery Time. We made a marble track. We used excellence when it got tough and we carried on. We also used creativity when we made different tracks.  This is the marble track my friends and I made. Look how long it is.
