WARM UP-

  • Hop on one foot, then hop on the other foot. Can you hop, one foot after the other?

This will gradually begin to lead the children into skipping action and rhythm. Encourage!

 

SKILL DEVELOPMENT-

  • Find a piece of equipment that is soft i.e. ball, teddy, pillow, cushion or toilet roll. Show what you can do with it. Encourage variety and a high level of activity.

This free choice and use of equipment is very important as it allows children to develop co-ordination skills and experiment with favourite pieces of equipment without being under pressure.

  • Change your piece of equipment for a ball. How can you steer the ball along the ground?

Look for children using their hands and feet. Look at a demonstration of steering with feet and all try – use the inside and outside of feet keep the ball close to the feet. Look at a demonstration of steering the ball with a hand all try keep it close to the hand.

  • Using either your hands or feet can you travel in different directions?

Forwards, sideways, backwards (with care!) Show how the hand or foot must be behind the ball to change its direction.

  • Can you stop the ball in response to a signal?

Tell children to put their hand or foot on the top of the ball to stop it quickly.

  • Roll the ball gently into a space, run around it, “snatch” it up and pull it quickly up to your chest.

 

GAME ACTIVITY-

  • Find a partner i.e. parent, career or a sibling if no one is available find a safe space with a clear wall. One ball between two roll it to each other.

If conditions allow, sit astride and aim between partner’s legs.

  • Move to kneeling, squatting and finally standing – bend down to roll the ball.

Receiver must have their body behind the ball. With big hands stretched towards it, the receiver stops the ball and pulls it sharply up to the chest.

  • Put away the equipment.

 

CONCLUDING ACTIVITY-

  • Practise hopping on different legs and move about the space.
