Throwing Themselves into Athletics at Prep

Our Year 1 pupils were getting to grips with the basics of throwing in their athletics lesson. They first looked carefully at the balls and discovered a helpful seam to help their grip. Having felt how hard the balls were, the pupils agreed that it was important to follow rules when throwing them.

The children learnt the basics of an overarm throw and then were able to put their knowledge into practice, measuring their throws to see how far it could travel.

It was lovely to see the children listening and following instructions so beautifully and to see them improving their techniques as the session progressed. This training will be put to the test at Sports Day next half term.
