How many catches can you do in 1 minute? Eyes on the socks, make your hands as big as you can and make sure they’re together, watch the socks all the way into your hands and off you go. If you have some space and the weather is nice you could try this outside and throw a little higher. Question – Can you think of two sports you need to use catching whilst playing?
2 - Move Balance
How many times can you go around the tins in 1 minute? This is a tricky one; balance is the key and practicing before recording your score or challenging someone at home. You can change the object you’re balancing to make it easier or harder, the smaller and rounder it is the harder it will be to keep still! Idea – Change the course or add even some obstacles in the way to challenge yourself.
3 - Standing Long Jump
How far can you jump? Bend your knees and swing your arms, try and jump as far as you can! Keeping your balance when you land is important so mark where you land. You can measure how far you jumped with some things you have at home, like books or socks. Research – Can you find who has the world record for the long jump?
