Physical Activities Week 2 11/1/21

Physical Development in the Early Years is a prime area.  There are only 3 prime areas which are Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language and Physical Development so it is really important for our children to get moving during lock down.


Each week we will focus on a different activity that you can do daily.


LO: To throw and catch a large ball. 

Catching - Children to each have a ball and throw it up and catch it.  Or you can do it with your child or other children in your household and throw and catch it to each other.

If you don’t have space inside you could go to the park or an open space during your daily exercise.

  • When first learning to catch, encourage your child to catch the ball by wrapping their arms around the ball and cradling it to their chest. When their accuracy to catch the ball against their chest improves, encourage them to use only the palms of their hands and fingers.



Other activities you may wish to do with your child are:
