We have been exploring how force is important when we catch and throw different sized balls. Our half-circle is now a catching course where we are working on a basket catch after trying out our own ideas of how to catch. We are also learning an underhand and an overhand throw, placing our opposite foot forward for balance, after experimenting with our own ideas of how to throw. We have had fun playing games like builders and bulldozers and dragons’ tails where we use our hands to move objects and learn to play as a team. Our focus will shift to soccer balls and the different ways we can move them with our hands and feet before we learn some basic soccer skills.
