Physical Education KS1 / KS2: Dodge Zone - Throwing and Catching Skills

Commentators Johnny and Jasmine join the teams in the arena to learn the rules and skills of the game Dodge Zone.

Pupils can then test their own ability, by playing along with the interactive sections of the film; where balls appear to fly out of the screen towards the children.

They need to dodge left, right, duck, jump and lean back to avoid being hit.

The quicker they are able to react, the better chance they have of not being hit.
