We will look at pupils in a variety of drills which will cover ball skills, passing and receiving, shooting, 1v1 attack/defend, and influence in games play. Decisions will be based upon overall performance and how they will best be utilised into the football team formation.
Pupils will be observed performing both fielding and batting skills, and also how they tactically read the game. Decisions will be based upon the overall performance, and their effectiveness and impact within the game.
Pupils will have times recorded across three of the main strokes over 25m: Front Crawl – Breaststroke – Backstroke.
Children will be given the option to swim Butterfly.
The top 20 pupils will receive a ranking. E.g. the top swimmer will receive 20 points, the 20th best swimmer will receive 1 point. Pupils will receive a ranking for each individual stroke and then an overall ranking based on the aggregate of these.
Times, distances and heights have been recorded during this term’s PE athletics unit and at Sports Days. We will use this information, coupled with our observations of pupils in their PE lessons in Tem 1, to gain an overall picture of their current capabilities and potential to improve. We will also employ a ranking system if necessary.
An aggregate will be given for each pupil based on the scores/times they have received in swimming and athletics (if necessary). This will then be compared to their performance in both football and Teeball to provide an overall ranking. This ranking will be a major contribution to the overall selection but please note that it is not a guarantee; we will need to consider how selection will impact on the whole team performance, how pupils participate in lessons, their attendance at clubs and the attitude that they display during trials, and around school generally.
Selection will be made based on a pupil’s overall performance combined with the professional judgements of the PE and FOBISIA staff. Although times and measurements will be a major contributing factor, we are looking to select pupils that will allow for a strong team performance in all four events, and individuals who are deemed best fit for the team. From this, 10 pupils will be selected for each gender in each Year Group.
Parents will be notified if their child has been successful or unsuccessful in making the Primary FOBISIA team on Wednesday 22nd January (after school) via CHQ.
If selected, any other clubs or commitments that clash with FOBISIA training times will have to be cancelled to allow your child to train with the team at all times through the week.
