Weekly PE Challenge – Wall Ball

Hi everyone,

This week’s PE challenge to keep us all fit and healthy is the Wall Ball.    This physical challenge for the children, is to see how many times they can catch a ball.  Don’t forget to record your results and send them in to us!

It really is a challenge to catch a ball at this age so please modify the rules so that your child can have fun with it.  You could use a much larger ball, for instance to help them catch, swapping to smaller sized ones as they become more confident.  You could also roll the ball to each other or against a wall and see how fast you can go.  I bet you could really build up your speed!

The best way to keep a record would be to use a tally sheet.  Make a line for each time you do something and then count them all up and record the final number.  If you really wanted to be fancy every time you reach five you could put a line through the group.  See the illustrations.  Children can use this with everything they do.  If you could make a ‘clipboard’ that adds to the fun!

Let us know how many you achieve each day then see how many you’ve done over the whole week.  Good luck!  Ready, Steady, Go!

Until next time, do good looking for adventures, clean your ears out for good listening and turn your noggins (brains) on for good learning.

Take care, stay safe,
