Year 2/3 have been enjoying sport! This game is called Bombardment. It promotes ball handling skills and teamwork. It is inspired by the BluEarth program and therefore there is no 'out' so children are always participating. The game involves a square playing space with a team lining up on each side of the square. Each team throws tennis balls at a larger ball in the centre. The aim of the game is to make the large ball cross a line of the square that an opposing team is behind.
Each time the game is completed an extra challenge is added - e.g. 2 balls in the centre, more tennis balls, a time limit etc. The children could enjoy the game and play to their best without the worry of being 'out', putting someone out or holding the game up. The cooperation of the students was fantastic.
