SCHEME OF WORK BY OUR PARTNER mertonpe
Merton provide schools with the support and services they need to
deliver the very best PE and sporting opportunities for their students
TEACHING AND LEARNING POINTS:
Side-step away from defender
Accelerate into open space
Change direction quickly
LESSON LEARNING OBJECTIVE
To demonstrate a variety of evasive skills to beat a defender
HOW TO PLAY
Set out four coloured boxes in each corner of the playing area and ask
each player to put on a tag belt and collect a ball
Spit the class into four groups.
2) Choose one group to be the defenders; they start in the middle.
3) The other three groups start in a designated coloured box.
4) The teacher calls out for one coloured box to move to another
coloured box. When called, they must run past the defenders into
their finishing box. For example: "Blue box to orange box.
5) If a player makes it inside the box, they are safe from the defenders
as the box acts as a safe zone. However, if they are tagged outside
the safety areas, they join the defending team.
6) Initially call one colour at a time to move. Progress to asking
multiple boxes to move at the same time. For example:
Blue box to orange box, green box to red box -go.'
7) Encourage all teams to work cooperatively
8) Encourage attacking players to use evasive and fast footwork
to move into areas of open space.
9) Continue the game until there is one person left standing.
Change the size of the pitch, size of the ball, number of
defenders/attackers, number of coloured boxes.
Why is it important to change direction quickly when side-stepping?
(To move away from the defender, put them off balance.)
What would you accelerate into when beating a defender and why?
What part of the foot should a defender be positioned on when
making a tag?
This extract is a sample of the Year 6 Unit 1 Tag Rugby Scheme of Work, produced by Merton School Sport Partnership. Merton have worked with
leading experts to develop their Primary PE Framework which includes 87 units of work plus a range of games appendices, glossaries, music and
resources covering the physical activities included in the National Curriculum for Primary Physical Education.
Merton's framework provides a structured and progressive approach to PE, which the
whole school can follow with ease. Even unconfident teachers will be inspired and
equipped to deliver good PE lessons which are active and engaging, encouraging
children to develop a lifelong love of physical activity and sport.
