Our Year 6 pupils could choose to take part in a football skills session run by an ex-professional football player and coach. This optional session took place during choosing time. The session involved lots of activities to develop the pupils’ skills in ball control initially using a tennis ball to practise moving and kicking with both the inside and outside of the foot. The pupils also worked on keeping their heads up so that they knew where their teammates were to pass to and at the same time trying to keep control of the ball at their feet! The session ended with a game of pupils against the 2 ex-professionals. The pupils who participated really enjoyed the session. We hope we can arrange another session soon.
