Outdoor Games Club

So far, we have also learned some basic football skills, so that we can kick with control and accuracy. We have also played some throwing games using beanbags to throw and catch to each other, as well as trying to aim and throw and assortment of equipment into a bucket - something that is great practise for sports day. Related image

We have been playing a game using velcro discs - it is a great, fun way of learning accuracy, technique of throwing and stance when catching the balls.

Some children enjoyed it so much, they said they would practice it at home with their families which is great!
