Those who came to school in Dosbarth 2 last week did some throwing and catching. We used voile scarves to practice hand positions for catching as they float slowly down giving us time to catch correctly. Then we tried the same hand positions to catch a large ball and then a smaller ball. You could practise catching with a partner, by playing games or by bouncing a ball on the ground to against a wall.
I have asked my wonderful D1 demonstrators to help me again this week. We used our sponge blocks to practise throwing as they were big enough for us to catch and not too bouncy for us to control. You could practise with something smaller if you can, and move further away from your partner to make it even harder. We practised putting our hands up ready to catch the block - this also helps the thrower know where to aim their throw! 😁
