During sensational sport, we explore different sports, their rules and understanding of how to play the game. Sports that we play are not the ones under the National Curriculum but are ones popular in different countries. We run the same sport for 2 weeks then change it over and explore a different one.
So far, we have explored:
Baseball - A striking and fielding sport; very popular sport in America & Japan.
Dodge ball - A team based elimination game; again very popular in America.
However, we adapted different rules and played variations of Dodge ball. Such as Queen Bee, this is where the whole team have to protect one player “The Queen Bee” if their Queen is hit at any point then the whole team is eliminated.
Futsal - A football based game played indoors with a faster paced tempo and slightly adjusted rules; very popular in South America, mainly Brazil.
