Spiderman catches - can you complete 30 seconds of continuous Spiderman catches?

The key to this challenge is developing a good squat position and getting into a rhythm, bending your knees as you swap your hands round.

Good luck!

Pass the ball around both legs, then lunge back and pass the ball round 1 leg. Legs together again for a round the world, then lunge back with the other leg and pass the ball round 1 leg.

I look forward to seeing your videos or photos on seesaw.

Challenge 4 - 100 point challenge!

This week's challenge requires you to complete a range of exercises that we would usually do within a dynamic warm-up before playing a game of netball.

Each time you complete one of the exercises you get one point. There are 10 different exercises. So if you did each exercise 10 times you would achieve 100 points. There's some maths involved too! 10 x 10 = 100

You don't have to do each exercise, you could choose your 5 favourite and complete each of those 20 times. It is up to you how you achieve your 100 points. I look forward to seeing your videos on seesaw. Have fun!

Challenge 3

Your 3rd netball challenge focuses on hand-eye co-ordination and ball handling skills.

Can you make up your own routine of ball (or toy) handling skills that lasts for 30 seconds?

Good luck and I hope you enjoy this challenge! I look forward to seeing your videos on seesaw.

Challenge 2

This week's challenge is all about your jumping power and the need for fast feet in netball.

You will need to make sure you warm your leg muscles up before you attempt the challenge. Watch the video where I explain the warm up and then the challenge.

Post your videos of your challenge attempts on seesaw and let me know your score.

My score is 12 in 30 seconds - can you beat me?

Challenge 1

Mrs Ricketts is setting you a weekly netball challenge to help develop your skills for when we eventually return to school and get some time together on the netball court.

Challenge 1 - Can you beat Mrs Ricketts?

You will need a target something to aim for that collects the items you are throwing. This could be a bucket, a box, or a cushion to aim for. 

 

Set yourself up 2m away from your target with 20 soft items - these could be 20 pairs of socks, or small soft toys.

Over the week, can you perfect your skills and improve your score? If you find it easy, how could you make it more challenging?
