This term in PE we are using small equipment such as beanbags and balls.
Today in PE we were practising our throwing and catching skills throwing beanbags into a target and throwing and catching them with a partner.
After PE some children chose to continue this work, with friends,in our outdoor classroom. It started off as 2 children working with an adult throwing and catching the beanbags but then lots of children came to join in the activity. We then decided to work in pairs using the beanbags. We have really improved our throwing and catching skills throughout the day!
We now know to throw the beanbag well we need to look where our partner's hands are, as we throw. When we are catching we need to keep our eyes on the beanbag and get our hands ready to catch.
