The Year 5 tennis medium-term plan, designed for six lessons, aims to develop students' fundamental tennis skills such as sending, receiving, and hitting, with an emphasis on skill replication and targeting. The plan also incorporates the use of small-sided games to enhance technique consistency under pressure. Additionally, it seeks to foster an understanding of the effects of exercise on the body, as well as teamwork and cooperation skills. Students will learn when to apply various techniques in different contexts, understand basic gameplay strategies to outscore opponents, and grasp the rules of the game. They will also learn how to work effectively in pairs, all while building on their sending and receiving abilities, engaging in competitive play, and adhering to game rules.

As part of the curriculum, students will engage in a variety of tasks designed to improve their physical and mental capacities, such as warm-up exercises, and will be encouraged to develop their decision-making and problem-solving skills. The programme is structured to progress from basic ball and racket familiarisation to more complex game play, including volleying and scoring. The plan outlines clear learning objectives for each week, with tasks ranging from simple ball-throwing exercises to competitive mini-games. By the end of the six-week course, students are expected to demonstrate improved control, accuracy, and consistency in their play, understand the importance of warm-ups, and be able to effectively evaluate and improve their own performance, as well as that of their peers. The scheme of work is comprehensive, providing a structured approach to tennis within the context of physical education and health and well-being.
