Duration: 50 Date: 29/05/18

Teacher: Karly Neoh

Helper: Lauren Young
Observer: Elyshia Lay

This lesson focuses on developing students throwing and aiming skills. Students
already have prior knowledge of different throwing techniques (e.g. underarm,

PE lessons and participation in out of school sports.

Material/equipment required:
• Station task cards (Appendix 1)
• Tennis Balls
• Bean bags
• Hula hoops
• Cones
• Cricket Stumps
• Frisbees
• Mediball


The students will:

• Improve basic throwing skills and demonstrate these skills by throwing over a short
distance using underarm, overarm, backhand and rolling techniques
• Improve focus and accuracy skills and demonstrate these skills by aiming for
stationary and moving targets

The teacher will:

• Ensure there is enough space for students to run freely and establish boundaries
• Explain rules and expectations at the beginning of the lesson and manage the safety of
students during lesson to avoid injuries
• Observe students’ progress and participation and offer constructive feedback
throughout lesson

Equipment Key
Explain all the different station activities
with demonstrations. Place students in
groups of 2-3. = hula hoops = tennis balls
Safety Note: Do not throw
balls/beanbags/frisbees until the other = cones = frisbees
people in your group are behind the
throwing line. = skittles = bowling ball
Students spend 5 minutes at each station and = cricket stumps = throwing ling
then rotate clockwise to the next station
when their time is up. = bean bags = mediball
Stations: Place cones on the floor placed
1. Hula Hoop Ring Toss progressively further from the throwing line. 5 minutes
Students take turns tossing hula hoops
around the cones. Once they have tossed
their hoop they collect it and go to the back
of the line.
2. Cone Strike Set up a row of cones with soft balls 5 minutes
balanced on top. Students stand behind the
line, using tennis balls they try to knock the
balls off the cone. To increase difficulty
students can use their non-preferred hand. =

3. Bean Bag Toss
progressively further from the throwing line.
Students take turns throwing the bean bags
into the hula hoops. Once they have thrown
their bean bag they collect it and go to the =
back of the line. Once you get the cone
closest you then aim for the next one.
Students stand behind the throwing line and 5 minutes
4. Cricket Stumps try to knock the bar off the cricket stumps =
by throwing tennis ball. Once they have
thrown they collect their ball and move to
the end of the line.
Students stand behind the throwing line and 5 minutes
5. Bowling roll the ball towards the skittles to try and
knock them all down. Once they have rolled
their ball they collect their ball, pick up any
skittles they have knocked and move to the
end of the line.
Students stand behind throwing line and try 5 minutes
6. Frisbees to throw a frisbee into a hula hoop. To
increase difficulty the hoop can be moved
further back and students can try throwing
with their non-preferred hand.
8 minutes
Group Game Divide students into two teams and have
Monster Ball students stand on their side of a large square
facing each other. Students throw bean bags

and roll tennis balls at a larger ball to try and
make it move. The aim is to get the ‘monster =
ball’ to cross the line of the opposing team’s
side of the square. = =
