Grade 5

Physical development and movement

Module 20

Field and track techniques

Activity:

To learn field and track techniques

[lo 4.3]

  1. An exercise in passing the relay baton

Material: One relay baton for every three learners. Remember: a sawn-off broomstick or dowel can also be used. Two markers per group.

The learners are divided into groups of three.

Two markers are placed at a distance of about 10 - 15 m apart (depending on the available space).

Learner A starts off from the correct starting position, holding the stick in his/her right hand.

Learner B stands at the second marker and receives the baton from his/her friend with his/her left hand.

Learner C receives the baton with his/her right hand and runs back to Learner A, who receives the baton with his/her left hand.

This round can be run about five times.

The baton is passed on alternately using both the blind method and the visual method.

Each learner has a turn to start.

  1. Practising hurdles using chairs

Material: five chairs per group

  • Divide the learners into equal groups of about six learners per group.
  • Place chairs in a row with the back rests to the side, at a distance of about 4 m apart.
  • Learners take turns to hurdle over the obstacles.

  1. Long jump exercise, with a long run-up

Material: Blackboard chalk, two mats per group.

Divide the learners into equal groups of about six learners per group.

Draw a take-off line in chalk for each group.

Place the mats lengthwise on top of each other 1 m from the take-off point.

Draw marking lines with chalk on one side of the mats.

Learners practise the long-jump technique on the shortened take-off.

NB: The height attained after the take-off point, and the forward swing when landing, are important.

  1. Triple jump exercise with shortened run-up

The same method is used as for the long-jump exercise described above.

In this exercise, the mats are placed 3 - 4 m from the take-off line.

Correct leg coordination and rhythm are needed in order to fit in the complete taking-off routine (twice on the one foot, then the other).

Assessment

LO 4

P HYSICAL D EVELOPMENT A ND M OVEMENT

The learner will be able to demonstrate an understanding of, and participate in, activities that promote movement and physical development.

We know this when the learner:

4.1 explores a range of target games;

4.3 demonstrates a range of field and track athletics techniques;

4.4 performs rhythmic movements and steps with attention to posture and style;

4.5 demonstrates knowledge of safety measures in and around water.

Memorandum

The learning content of modules 19-22 offers the learners the opportunity to promote important concepts concerning sportsmanship, rules of the game, precision and balance in a playful manner. The importance of sticking to the rules of the game must be brought to bear on them in every activity in which they participate. The way in which the educator handles the rules and discipline in relation to the learning content will determine the degree of success attained in this module. The games are conducive to the development of team spirit and esprit de corps in this grade. Practising the relay races, hurdles, long jump and HOP, SKIP AND JUMP also offers the learners the opportunity to prepare for the school’s sports day.

The importance of safety measures in and around the swimming pool, at the seaside, or in aquatic sports is paramount. In the context of aquatic activities, statistics indicate an alarmingly high mortality rate amongst children up to the age of 14.

what about nanotechnology for water purification
RAW Reply
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.

yes that's correct
