Introducing a new sport to PE

Students have been enjoying outdoor PE sessions this half-term, they have been able to experience and participate in a range of different sports. Year 6s, 9s and 10s have been developing their skills in football, whilst the Year 11s have been assessed in football as part of their GCSE PE practical element.

The Year 7s and 8s have been introduced to a new sport at Grafham Grange ….. Rugby! They have learnt the basics of the games including handling, evasion, tactics and even tackle and rucking techniques using pads.

In games lessons the students have rotated between football and cricket, enjoying the variety on offer. The attitude and engagement towards PE has been fantastic and it’s great to see them all enjoying sport.
