TES collection PE Team games

Primary Physical Education - Team Games

Team games require more than knowledge of the rules and a willingness to join in: these resources introduce the individual skills needed, such as catching, throwing, aiming and playing as a team. Also included are plans for invasion and team games. Invaluable - particularly for the non-PE-specialists amongst us!
