We have been practising our ball skills this week and developing our knowledge of throwing and catching techniques. We started with larger balls and thought about how we could perform a successful throw and also how to catch - relaxed hands cupped at the side of the ball with fingers pointing upwards; thumbs behind the ball pointing towards the body; one foot slightly in front of the other; jumping to reach the ball, quickly bringing the ball into the body.


We have then moved on to smaller balls and bean bags, challenging ourselves to complete tasks before catching, for example clapping hands, completing a full turn or jumping on the spot. 


We have also completed some team activities which required us to use our listening skills in order to develop these both inside and outside of the classroom!
