13.05.20 Make Music outside.
11.05.20 More fun with balloons
Same skills as table tennis, but using balloons, which you can make more challenging by altering the size of the balloon and the area of the table used.
06.05.20 Sock challenge.
This is another one to have a go at. Rather like my attempt with rolled up newspaper and clingfilm, though more likely to have a couple of socks around. I think his video presentation might be a bit more professional than mine! See what you think.
04.05.20: Balloon Games
These are great fun and like all the activities, it works on your hand eye coordination and fine and gross motor skills, i.e. fingers, hands and big muscles!
First activity is just keeping the balloon off the ground for as long as possible using as many different body parts as possible.
If you have got someone to play against or can get sides sorted out, everyone can play a game together for seated volleyball. As you get better try and use the correct technique and then only three hits on each side before it has to go to the opposition and no hitting it twice in a row! Unless playing on own or singles.
27.04.20: Mr Jenkins has a couple of videos here for you to try at home… Practise your ball skills indoors. Practise your ball skills in the garden. He also found this article which might help you to explore nature whilst you are excising.
Here is a link to Sport Birmingham, if you need some more ideas and challenges about keeping up your health and fitness levels up, try it out.
Here is an easy game to play indoors, that helps with co-ordination and those fine motor skills that we all need to work on! Watch the video for an explanation from Mr J.
This game is a bit more technically demanding and again it’s good for your hand eye co-ordination and fine motor skills, as well as being a challenging and fun game to play inside. You can practice on your own or challenge another household member.
Remember if you don’t complete any of the stages, its back to the beginning, if you are on your own or give the coin to your opposition for their go if you’re playing with a partner!
I have found that 2p is the best coin, but have a go with different ones. You could challenge yourself further by seeing if you could do it with a 5p. Let me know how you get on! Good Luck and keep active!
Here is a message from Mr Jenkins with a challenge for us all to try out…
And here are some Forest School Learning ideas that you can try at home!
