Other activities / Differentiation Assessment / Evaluation

It is unlikely that all 3 passes will be covered in one lesson..

    It may be that one is concentrated on and the game built

    around that pass. It is not always necessary to teach all 3 passes.

    Timed races: Could have competitions between each pair.

    How many passes can be made in a minute without

    dropping the ball ?? Go back to one if ball is dropped.

Practice against partner. ( with or without ball) In pairs: Opposite each other on court. One dribbles down court ( as above) the other sprints down other side. By the To incorporate all skills basket player with ball passes to partner who shoots. Once learned so far in a game. he/she shoots he/she has to turn and sprint back to defend his/her basket. The other player collects the rebound and becomes an attacker. He/she has to attack the opposite basket. Game: Introduce the “defence skill” into the game. Reinforce

Differentiation / other Activities. Assessment/evaluation

    May decide to recap more on last week before moving onto

    defensive strategies.

    Footwork Game: Called “Beach and “Sea”

    Using court lines/ markings, identify area behind the line as “beach” and area in front as “sea”. Using a two footed jump with knees bent, pupils jump forwards on the “sea”

    command and jump backwards on “beach “ command. Idea is to jump solidly onto 2 feet from 2 feet and back.

    Competition: Vary the commands and if pupils make a

    mistake they are out. See who is left in.
