Dodgeball (KS2)

Pupils will improve on key skills used in dodgeball such as throwing, dodging and catching. They also learn how to select and apply tactics to the game to outwit their opponent. In dodgeball, pupils achieve this by hitting opponents with a ball whilst avoiding being hit. Pupils are given opportunities to play games independently and are taught the importance of being honest whilst playing to the rules. Pupils learn officiating skills when refereeing games and are given opportunities to evaluate and suggest improvements to their own and others’ performances.


Key Skills:

  • Physical: throwing, catching, dodging, blocking
  • Social: collaboration, respect, leadership
  • Emotional: honesty, determination, confidence
  • Thinking: decision making, selecting and applying tactics
