Activity of the week

Play Kick Out* for 10 – 15 minutes. How far can you kick the ball?

You’ll need a large ball, some space and a grown-up for this game! Mark a starting line and place the ball down at it. Take a few strides back. Then run up and kick the ball as far as you can. Ask the grown-up to mark where the ball landed. Try this a few times and see if you can kick farther each time. Alternative kicking with your left and your right foot.
