Year 4

Football is the worlds most popular sport, an invasion game in which two teams play against each other aiming to kick a football in to their opponents goal. Score more than you concede and you win the game. Work as a team to pass and move around the pitch when you have the ball, aiming to progress towards your opponents goal so you can shoot. Without the ball work hard to defend as a team, tackle opponents and deny space ultimately aiming to stop them scoring.
