Below is a grid of five challenges, one for each day this week. You may select which challenge you complete each day, as long as you have completed them all by the end of the week.
I have left one day blank for 'Wellbeing Wednesday' this is time to spend away from your computer screens. Please see wellbeing Wednesday tab.
Communication and Language
Expressive art and design
Personal, social and emotion development
Physical development - Ball roll - How to play:
Equipment: one large light ball
How to play:
Two people (minimum) sit on the floor with their legs spread out and toes touching
The youngest person starts with the ball and rolls it using both hands to the person sat opposite from them
They receive the ball and roll it either back (if playing with 2 people) or onto another person (if more than 2 are playing)
Once the ball is being passed nicely and under control, then take one step backwards so your toes no longer touch- can you all still keep control of the ball?
Skill Tip: Use both hands behind the ball to roll it to start with. Encourage both hands to point towards where you want the ball to go. When receiving the opposite should happen- hands are on the top cushioning the ball into the body
STEP principle of coaching/teaching- helps to engage, challenge and motivate everyone by altering one or more of the principles
Space - try and keep your legs straight so you have a bigger area to roll the ball within
Task – speed up the passing of the ball between players
Equipment – Try with a smaller ball
People – Get more family members to join in (if you have the space- or go outside)
