Fielding's Always Active - Challenge 2 and introducing 'Game of the Week'
Well done to everybody who had a go at last weeks challenge and thank you to those of you who shared your attempt. It made a big difference to my week watching all of the videos!
Challenge 2 is the 'Throw, Bounce, Catch' challenge and is now up and ready for you try at home. Remember you don't have to send in a video to take part in the challenge if you don't want to, just have a go! If you do want to share a video or photo send them to me at email@example.com (keep your files below 75mb)
Also new this week is the 'Game of the Week'. On this page we will be posting a series of active games you can play against other people in your household. This week's game has been posted by one of our Year 4 pupils - check out the 'Fielding's Always Active' page to see how to play.
Throw, Bounce, Catch
Find a wall in your household if you have one available and stand 1 big step away from it. If you don't have a wall that is useable for the challenge you can do it using the floor instead. Check with the adults in your household which walls you are allowed to use before you try the challenge! Once you have your space you need a ball of some description. Your challenge is to throw the ball against the wall (or floor) so that it bounces back to you for you to catch as many times as you can in 30 seconds. If you drop the ball, just pick it up and keep going.
Make it harder
- Use a smaller/different shape ball
- Throw and catch with 1 hand or alternating hands
- Clap or spin before you catch the ball
Make it easier
- Use a bigger/slower ball
- Throw and catch with 2 hands
- Take a further step back and allow the ball to bounce on the floor after the wall
