Throwing and catching in Year 1

In Year 1 we have been looking at throwing and catching. Finding ways in which we make sure the ball travels straight to our partner and being ready to receive the ball. Some children are even starting to put their body weight towards where they are throwing the ball, which is really important.

Our varied throws included one bounce, two bounces and no bounces. We looked at how to adjust our feet and hand position to make sure we collect the ball properly. The children have picked up these skills quickly and next week we will be moving onto high/low catching and how to collect the ball from the ground!
