Our new challenge is called Sevens. In this game you throw a tennis ball against a wall and do different actions for each step. The steps get harder as you go along. It's hard at first, but keep practising until you can do it right through without stopping.
SEVENS: Throw the ball against the wall and catch it without dropping it. Do this seven times in a row. SIXES: Throw the ball so it bounces off the ground and hits the wall, then catch it without letting it hit the ground again. Do this six times in a row.
FIVES: Pat-bounce the ball on the ground five times without stopping.
FOURS: Hold your leg up and throw the ball underneath it so it bounces off the wall. Catch it without letting it touch the ground. Do this four times.
THREES: Throw the ball against the wall, and as it comes back pat-bounce it three times. Do this three times.
TWOS: Throw the ball against the wall. Clap your hands in front, behind, then in front of you again and catch the ball without letting it touch the ground. Do this twice.
ONES: Throw the ball against the wall, turn around on the spot and catch the ball as it bounces off the wall, without letting it touch the ground. Do this once. Our final challenge is to learn 5 playground games and share these with 5 other children in our school.
