abduction - standing in a circle of people and moving your hands up to hold the shoulders of the two people next to you
adduction - bringing your hands back down again
disclaimer - I don't do OCR GCSE but a quick google search makes it seem like this is a good example

I'm doing A-level PE so I'm sure that the practical examples would be the same;
A cartwheel for gymnastics would be an example for abduction as it means to take away and so is characterised by movement away from the midline.
Bringing the lower legs back together from the inverted cartwheel would be an example for adduction as it means to bring together and so is characterised by movement towards the midline.
I hope this helped!
