WARM UP-

  • Children show wide shapes and thin shapes – stretch as much as possible.
  • Take out a piece of equipment.
  • How can you use it to travel along the ground?
  • How can you use it to make it go high?
  • Change your equipment to a ball if necessary.

 

 

 

 

SKILL DEVELOPMENT-

  • Throw and catch a ball accurately and in different ways?
  • Throw the ball high so it bounces on the ground close to your feet. (Release the ball from above the head to allow for a high, straight up and down throw).
  • Throw the ball up high and catch it. Stretch hands up towards the ball and move feet to get the body underneath the falling ball. How high can you throw and catch it with control?
  • Can you catch it with one hand? Can you catch it with the other hand?
  • Bounce the ball down hard to see how high you can make it rise into the air. Bounce the ball directly downwards so it goes up/down not at an angle forwards. Move to catch the ball with two hands or one hand.

 

GAME ACTIVITY-

  • Take out out a piece of equipment suitable for throwing and bouncing.
  • Make up a game that involves throwing and bouncing the apparatus high before catching it.
  • How many times can you successfully throw and catch before dropping the ball? Keep trying to beat your own record.
  • Can you play the game when you are moving along the ground?
  • Join with a partner – how can you adapt your game to play it in 2’s?
  • Do you need to change or add to your equipment
  • Put away the equipment.
