Good morning everyone.
Hope you are all well and enjoyed trying the throwing and catching challenges.
Thank you for letting me know how well you are getting on with your challenges its great to hear from you.
Its Wednesday again and I've got new challenges for you.
1): You will need a ball, any size will do, and a space, the garden, the close, mum and dad will help you choose.
This week we are going to think about bouncing.
Challenge 1: How many times can you bounce the ball without missing it?
Challenge 2: How many times can you bounce the ball with one hand without missing it?
Challenge 3: How many times can you bounce the ball with alternate hands without missing it?
Remember to set yourself targets, if you can bounce the ball five times try ten bounces.
Test your family to see how well they take up the challenge.
2):Our Health and wellbeing focus this month has been keeping safe so here is your second challenge: It is always important to wash your hands and at the moment so important.Think about all the things you do with your hands.Draw round your hands.On each finger draw or write about something you do with your hands during the day.Use your hands to design  a poster encouraging people in your house to  wash their hands with soap and water for 20 seconds.
Where do you think most people would see your poster in the house?
Display your poster in the best place.I'm looking forward to hearing how you get on this week and I would love to see the posters you make. gw07tavendaleanne7@glow.sch.uk
