Whipperley Infant Academy ‘Learning, Growing, Together’

PE

  PE W/B 18/01/21

 

Please choose one of the following activities to work on and let us know how you get on.

  1. Cross the River

 

You will need:

 

  • Cushions
  • Family 

 

 

How to play:

 

  • Imagine there is a river running across your playing area with a riverbank on each side.
  • One-player game: Using two cushions as lily pads, try to cross the river without touching the floor.
  • Two or more player game: Using three cushions as lily pads, work together to try to cross the river.
  • Only one person is allowed on a lily pad at a time.

 

Remember:

 

  • Make sure you have enough room to cross the river safely.
  • Make sure all obstacles such as tables are out of the way.
  • Make sure the ‘lily pads’ won’t slip and slide across the floor.

 

Reflection:

  • What was the best method for crossing the river?
  • How did you feel when you crossed the river?

 

 

2. Animal Moves

 

 

 

How to play:

 

  • Choose some music that reminds you of an animal.
  • Become an animal character. Can someone watching guess which animal you are?
  • Can you create movements where you pretend you are moving over or under things in your animal’s habitat?
  • With a partner, what happens when two animals meet? Can you create a movement to show what happens?
  • Can you be creative and become lots of different animal characters?
  • Can you keep trying to improve your animal character?

 

Top tips:

 

Get into character. How would your animal move? What things would be in their natural habitat? Are they big and scary or small and sweet?

 

Reflection:

Did you move staying in character? Could you imagine your animal moving through forests or water, over hills or under logs?

 

 

 

 

  1. Throwing for accuracy

You will need:

  • Box
  • Soft object such as a teddy.

 

How to play:

  • Stand a comfortable distance away from your box.
  • Hold your object with two hands. Underarm throw your object into the box. If it goes in the box, move the box a step away. If it misses, then move the box closer to you.
  • After 5 attempts, move on to throwing one handed. Remember to use your strongest hand.
  • Now see how many successful attempts you can get in a row.

 

Top tips:

 

Look at the target when you’re throwing.

Use the video for a demonstration

 

Reflection:

 

How many successful attempts did you manage? How did you feel when your object landed in the box?
