Bounce and catch


Individual bounce and catch

  • Let children pick from a variety of balls and practise dropping one from waist height and trying to catch the rebound with two hands.
  • If they drop it from higher, can they still catch the rebound?

Partner bounce and catch

  • In pairs, can one child drop a ball from height so the ball bounces and the other child catches the rebound?
  • Can the pair move slightly further apart and still bounce the ball to each other? Try this with a variety of balls.
