Developments in National Curriculum Physical Education have placed increasing emphasis on games including football as an area of activity at Key Stage 2. In doing so, it is intended that not only skill levels in the game will improve, but also that personal, social and physical skill levels are developed, and competencies such as good team work, perseverance and sportsmanship should be nurtured alongside the skills of the game. This practical book is designed to help primary school teachers deliver progressive and educationally worthwhile football lessons. It contains a series of lesson plans that tackle both content and delivery aspects and, consequently, offer useful teaching tips on Error Diagnosis And Correction, Methods Of Differentiation, Motivational strategies and organizational hints. The lesson plans adopt a prescriptive approach and this is done to make the material more accessible to the many inexperienced primary school football teachers.
