WARM UP-

  • Run around in a space on a signal stop in a curled position. (Repeat several times).

 

  • COPY CATS: children copy an adult/partner instructions for different ways of travelling and stopping and add different speeds.

 

  • Choose a piece of equipment and show how you can use it with control.

SKILL DEVELOPMENT-

  • Replace your equipment and collect a large ball – show different ways of using it. (Remember balancing on hands, throw and catch and patting the ball upwards).
  • Practise patting the ball upwards with your hands. (Two hands then one hand, other hand – to extend if appropriate).
  • How can you move the ball along the ground and keep it close to you?
  • Grip the ball with different parts of your body (between legs, under the arm, with hand against the back etc). Can you move around in these different positions?
  • Roll the ball in different directions, run to overtake it and pick it up.

 

GAME ACTIVITY-

  • Collet a beanbag each. Put your ball down in a space and aim to hit your ball with your beanbag.

 

  • Can you make your ball move to a line, or all across the playground by hitting it lots of times with your beanbag?

WARM UP-

  • Copy Cats- Children respond to the adults instructions for different ways of travelling

(e.g. “run, skip, jump, gallop, sideways, hop” etc.) and for stopping in different shapes (e.g. wide, long, thin, small and curled etc.)

 

  • Find a piece of equipment that is soft i.e. ball, teddy, pillow, cushion or toilet roll. Show how you can use it in different ways with control. Encourage variety and a high level of activity.

 

SKILL DEVELOPMENT-

  • Replace the equipment for a ball – show how you can throw and catch it.

Keep looking at the ball, stretch “big hands” out to catch it.

 

  • Hold the ball out in front of you balanced on two hands.

Can you walk with it and retain the balance?

 

  • Hold the ball out in front of you balanced on one hand – can you walk? Can you gently run?

If children have sufficient control they could play traffic lights with the ball balanced on one hand.

Green = Run             Amber = Walk            Red = Stop

 

  • Can you pat the ball upwards on your hands?

 

  • Roll the ball gently, run to overtake it and pick it up. (pull it to your chest)

 

  • Roll it in different directions overtake it and pick it up. (pull it to your chest)

 

GAME ACTIVITY-

  • Collect a sheet of paper and place it in a space. Gently roll your ball at the paper. Chase it, overtake it and pick it to your chest, every time you hit the paper with your ball you score a point.

Easier move paper closer or use bigger paper like a newspaper making a bigger target.

Harder move paper further away or use smaller paper cutting paper in half to A5 making a small target.

  • Put away the equipment.

 

CONCLUDING ACTIVITY-

  • Find a line and walk along it without falling off.
