What will students learn 

Students must develop their ability to perform football related skills such as passing, dribbling, shooting and controlling the football.

Students will also develop the knowledge and understanding of the basic rules of the game (when the ball is in or out of play/what is or isn't a foul/ developing a deeper more cemented understanding of the rules of the game) Students will develop their communication, teamwork and leadership skills through a series of different activities.

Students will also develop an understanding for attacking and defensive principles.
Key Knowledge that students should know at the end of 'Topic' This is the knowledge that students will meet for the first time in this topic  Explore the origin of football (more than 2,000 years ago ancient China, Greece and parts of Central America claim to have started the sport; but it was England that transitioned football into the game we know today). Develop an understanding of the health benefits playing football has physically, mentally and socially. How skills can be learnt and transferred into other sports and everyday life, these will not just be physical skills but social skills such as communicating, leading, problem solving and working collaboratively as a team. Students will develop and refine football specific skills such as ball familiarisation and control, passing, dribbling, beating an opponent and how to implement these skills into a competitive environment.  Attacking and defensive principles will also be analysed and implemented into gameplay to see how well they can outwit an opponent.
This is knowledge that students may have met before but will need to deepen their understanding   Students will have knowledge to name and explain areas on the pitch and basic rules e.g lines, handball rule, fouling and what a foul can result in, throw ins, corners, when might you pass and why, why might you use different types of passes, when might you dribble and why, when might you shoot and why, when might they need to beat an opponent and why etc. If the students cannot retrieve the knowledge physically then they should be able to recite how to perform the skill verbally or when the skill may be performed.  Students will have knowledge of basic tactics of keeping possession, defending and attacking. Students will implement attacking and defensive strategies into each lesson but also need to recall these strategies when participating in other invasion sports such as rugby, hockey and basketball etc.
Key Skills that students should be able to demonstrate at the end of 'Topic' This is the skills  that students will meet for the first time in this topic Students will undergo a variety of practices focussing on football skills which will able them to perform key skills used in the sport such as passing, ball control/familiarisation, dribbling, beating an opponent and implementing these skills into a competitive situation. Students will be involved in isolated practices which will force the skill development and a variety of 2v1, 3v1 and small sided games. This competition will force the students to work under pressure and develop their skill set to a higher ability. Students will acquire knowledge through participating in practices, watching and performing in demonstrations, using task cards and analysing video footage.
