Physical development - Over and under - How to play:
Equipment: 1 small ball
How to play:
A children’s party classic!!
Stand in a line with your family members one behind the other, all facing in the same direction
The person at the front lifts the ball over their head and passes it to the person behind them and then goes and joins the back of the line
The second person passes the ball between their legs (under the body) to the next person before moving to the back of the line
Then over the head, then under the body and so on
Skill Tip: Use both hands when passing the ball and communication will help!!
If over and under is difficult for the children to understand, then try a few minutes of everyone passing over and then a few minutes of passing under, before then alternating
STEP principle of coaching/teaching- helps to engage, challenge and motivate everyone by altering one or more of the principles
Space - try and stand fairly close to each other so you don’t need to stretch too far
Task – speed up the passing of the ball and your movement to the back of the line
Equipment – Try with a smaller ball or even a balloon?!
People – Get more family members to join in (if you have the space- or go outside)
Understanding the world
Communication and language
