|What will students learn||
Students will recap and develop their ability to perform cricket related skills such as catching, fielding techniques, seam bowling, forward defence/front foot drive progressing onto a backfoot drive, bowling and batting tactics recapped then progressing onto fielding tactics and how to implement these skills in a game situation.

Students will recap bowling and batting tactics and develop an understanding of fielding tactics such as positions in the field, walking in, different fielding techniques in different scenarios and using different throws in different situations. Students will recap the components of fitness required in cricket and develop a deeper understanding of when and why these components of fitness would be used in the game. Students will be expected to retrieve skeletal system and muscular system knowledge from badminton, football, basketball, handball and health & fitness SOL through Q&A and leading warm-ups/cooldowns.

Recap the origin of cricket (The sport of cricket has a known history beginning in the late 16th century. Having originated in south-east England, it became the country's national sport in the 18th century and has developed globally in the 19th and 20th centuries. International matches have been played since 1844 and Test cricket began. Cricket is the world's second most popular spectator sport after association football). Recap and develop an understanding of the health benefits playing cricket has physically, mentally and socially. Recap how skills can be learnt and transferred into other sports and everyday life, these will not just be physical skills such as striking and fielding but social skills such as communicating, leading, problem solving and working collaboratively as a team. Students will be given the chance to coach peers and umpire in competitive scenarios in order to develop the above skills and to allow them to demonstrate their knowledge. Students will recap and develop and refine cricket specific skills such as ball familiarisation and catching, fielding techniques, seam bowling, Backfoot forward drive and how to implement these skills into a competitive game. Recap and develop Batting and bowling tactics with the implementation of fielding tactics. Students will be expected to retrieve skeletal system and muscular system knowledge from badminton and health & fitness SOL through Q&A and leading warm-ups/cooldowns.
|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 cricket pitch and basic rules e.g. boundary lines, creases and wickets. Students will understand game rules such as scoring runs, bowling, how to get the opposition out etc. Understanding these rules and the pitch layout will allow the students to umpire a competitive match.
Students will have the knowledge to name and explain techniques and skills such as how to throw the ball, catching the ball, seam bowling, fielding techniques how to hold the bat and how to perform the backfoot forward drive batting shot.
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 bowling and batting strategies. They will develop an understanding for fielding strategies and attempt to put batting, fielding and bowling strategies together as a team to make it more challenging for their opposition to win. Students will recap further develop their understanding of the components of fitness required and when they are required throughout a game situation. Students will demonstrate and explain when different types of bowls/shots might be used depending on different variables such as ball positioning/opposition fielders positioning/batters performance. Students will be expected to retrieve skeletal system and muscular system knowledge from badminton and health & fitness SOL through Q&A and leading warm-ups/cooldowns.
|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 focusing on cricket skills which will able them to perform key skills used in the sport such as throwing the ball, catching the ball, seam bowling, fielding techniques, how to hold the bat and the backfoot drive batting shot. Students will also implement these skills into a competitive situation. Students will be involved in isolated practices which will force the skill development and partake in a variety of paired and group practices. 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, coaching, umpiring, watching and performing in demonstrations, using task cards and analysing video footage. Students will develop their understanding through peer assessment and offering their partner with constructive feedback. They will also be provided with various opportunities to officiate different competitive scenarios in order to demonstrate they understand the rules of the game.
