Early Years

This term, we have been learning how to throw and catch a ball. We used large balls and worked on under-arm throws, using both hands to help us have better control over the ball and our throwing. We then learnt to use our hands, arms and bodies to get a good hold of the ball and prevent us dropping the ball. 

We worked with partners to practise accurate throwing and also working with adults to help get a good understanding of how to catch the ball well. 

We also looked at throwing the ball as far as we could and also throwing for a target to show how putting more or less power behind our throwing has an impact on the distance the ball will travel.
