Class 3J have been practicing their throwing and catching skills during recent P.E. sessions. Working together as a group the class members formed a large circle in the school gym. The class member holding the ball then had to choose a friend’s name to call out, ahead of throwing the ball to them.
We speed up this exercise, and then added in two balls. All pupils had to stay alert, as well as thinking on the spot who they were going to throw the ball to next. This is a great exercise to improve our hand to eye coordination. It will help the pupils when we advance this activity and build it into a simple game of basketball.
