Speed bounce – You will need – 

Floor space

1 towel or blanket rolled into a tube


Instructions

Lay the rolled towel/blanket tube lengthways on the floor. Stand with both feet to one side of the tube which we will now call a ‘barrier’. You will then jump two feet off the ground to the side and over the barrier. You will then repeat this continually for a period of time. KS1 children to jump for 30 seconds and count the number of jumps achieved in that time, KS2 will do it for 60 seconds. If you land on the barrier or ‘step’ over the barrier then that jump doesn’t count.

Towel fold target – You will need –

1 bath towel (KS1) tea towel or pillow case (KS2)

1 bean bag or sock partially filled with either – rice, pasta,lentils


Your skills challenge, should you choose to accept it…

Starting with the towel unfolded upon the ground, you should stand at end of towel facing away from it. You should then take the number of pigeon steps, for your age, away from the towel. This is your starting position. Then use the bean bag/sock and throw it underarm from this position to land it on the towel. If successful you scores 1 point. The towel is then folded (toward the front) in half and the child throws again. If successful then you score another point and the towel is folded in half again (this time from one side to the other). The front of the towel must not move position on the floor. Repeat until the towel can be no longer folded or you miss.

Record your score.

You will need:

  • 3 pairs of socks rolled into 3 balls.
  • 1 dining, garden or office chair.
  • 1 piece of  A4 paper with a target drawn on it
  • 1 saucepan or bowl
  • 1 empty plastic bottle

Instructions

On the chair, stick your target to the top of the backrest, place your saucepan/bowl on the seat and stand your bottle under the chair. Then, from the front of your chair, take small steps (the number of your age) away from the chair. Stand in this position (facing the chair) and take one of your sock balls. Using an underarm throw, bowl your sock ball to try to knock down the bottle. If you are unsuccessful, use your next sockball to try again. If you were successful, then take your next sock ball and (from the same position) use an underarm throw to bowl the sockball into the saucepan. If you miss then try again with your final sockball. If you get it in the saucepan then with your final sockball use an overarm throw to try to hit your paper target.

If you knock the bottle over it is 1 point

If you knock the bottle over and get it in the saucepan then it is 2 points.

And if you manage to do all 3 with just 3 sockballs then it is 3 points.
