Day 3 of sports week. Balloon catch and bucket ball

Yesterday was a fantastic day! I have moved around some of the events because of the weather in the next couple of days. How many times can you send and receive (throw and catch) a water balloon or wet sponge in two minutes? You will get wet!

Bucket Ball is a lot of fun and you might need patience and training to get better and better!

Recycled Bowling is an excellent indoor event like bucket ball. Find plastic bottles, figurines, books, anything that can be knocked down by some rolled up socks - check with an adult before you use any personal items at home!

I cannot wait to hear all about it!

    Hi Mr Ralph, yesterday we went for a run but I had a sore heel which stopped me from doing much. We have not done any sports but tomorrow, I will have a look. From Ethan.

    Dear Mr Ralph Sports Week Bucket Ball Challenge We set up our challenge using a cooking pot as the basket, we marked out two throw points using tape, obviously daddies throw point was further away. We used our timer from our phones to set up the two minute timer so we could challenge each other. We did the challenge four times, each time changing it slightly. We did a normal throw, one eye blindfold throw, use wrong hand throw and throw whilst balancing on one leg. The scores were: Normal - One Eye Blindfolded - Wrong Hand - One Leg Balance Holly 26 20 15 19 (20) Daddy 20. 14 6 15 The reason I put 20 in the balance on one leg throw was that the timer went off as the paper ball went into the pot, but daddy said it had not cross the line….. so gave me 19, but I don’t mind as I still managed to get more than Daddy. It was quite tiring as we had to keep chasing after and picking up the paper ball after each throw. I was fine but daddy needed to sit down after we finished. From Holly

    Hi Ethan, it is a shame your heel hurts but I am sure you will be running again in no time. There are alot of great ideas you can do sitting down we tried some today, throwing a water balloon up and clapping before catching (no one got too wet) Have a good day. Mr Ralph

    Hi Holly, my goodness you sound like you have been very busy and have had an amazing time. I will have to get you to be my PE helper soon if you keep up the amazing work! It must have been hard and I don't blame Daddy for needing a sit down. What was your favourite part of it? I may get the class to do some of the activities you did today. Have a good evening from Mr Ralph
