The PE Journal is a new thing in PE at Queenies. Students are asked to reflect on their learning and experiences, or give their ideas and opinions on paper as a record of what they are thinking and feeling at the time. This exercise only takes 2 minutes at the end of the lesson, but the benefits of keeping a journal are endless.

Court invasion games are explored via netball and basketball. The ‘big’ concepts such as man-on-man defence vs zone defence, court movement, leading, creating space and shooting are all explored.

They are asked to explain why some people prefer basketball, while others prefer netball, but all the while realizing that many of the skills in each are transferable to the other.
