Hi Everyone. Miss Tonks here.
I'm wondering how you got on with last week's bat and ball activities? We tried them out at school too, and it was amazing to see the improvement, the more we practised. Keep working on that activity even though we'll be moving on to something new each week. If you have a younger brother or sister at home, I'd really like you to encourage them to do it too. You could even get the whole family involved and have a competition against your grown-ups! In my house we use an old trophy and it gets awarded to the current champion each day.
This week I'd like you to try Lesson 3: Throwing for Accuracy.
You will need some containers and some things to throw - rolled up socks are brilliant for this, but you could use some soft toys or something similar. Please don't throw anything inside that could cause any damage and always check with your adults before you start the activity. Do the activities outside wherever possible.
Watch the short video. The children in the video are younger than you, but the skills used are ones which we will apply to many sports and physical activities. Pause it if you need time to read anything and especially pay attention to the suggestions to make the game easier or more challenging. Remember to keep your eyes on the target!
Have fun and there are plenty more activities to try under the Sports tag on the website.
Thursday 7th January. Lesson 1.
Staying fit and healthy is really important for our physical health and our mental health. Try the Lesson 1 Ball Co-ordination activity below that Miss Tonks has put on our PE page. What else will you be doing to stay fit and helathy during lockdown? Will you be dog walking, just walking, running, skipping, roller skating, bike riding, farming, gardening? Can you post any pictures of yourself keeping active over lockdown.
