The Bottle Flip
How many can you do in one minute? Try to beat your record and if you are really confident send a video to the class page.
Bottle Flip Trick Shot
What is the most incredible way you can flip a bottle?
The aim is to fill one bucket of water with cups of water that you have carried from your head. You will need 2 buckets, 1 filled with water the other, about to be. Carry cups of water balanced on your head into the empty bucket. Make it harder by having a member of your household trying to shoot it off with water pistols or cups of water. See how much water you can fill in 5 minutes then swap with your sibling/parent.

Garden Olympics) - Day 3
Mark out 10 metres, roll a ball, chase it, get in front of it and let it roll through your legs as many times as you can before it reaches the 10-metre marker. You must collect the ball before it goes past the marker to achieve a score.
Take turns to let the ball roll through each player’s legs and count the cumulative number.
Count how many times you can make the ball roll through your legs within 10 metres.
Personal best: Try to better your score on the second attempt.
Working in a pair, grab your mum/dad/sister/brother (probably not an animal) hold hands or forearms at arm’s length and see how many times you can successfully roll the ball up and down to each other. As one player stands up, the other sits down.
Use wall bars as a partner and count number of successful rolls.
Line up behind a start line with the first 2 players face to face and holding the ball. Roll the ball and then let go for the second in line to turn and join with the third in line to roll. Keep going around the group until the whole group has crossed a finishing line. Time how quickly you can finish.
Count the number of successful roles in a set time.
Personal Best: Try to better your score on the second attempt.
Garden Olympics) - Day 2
Pass the objects
The aim of the activity is to pass objects to 2 different markers without dropping them, using your feet.
Sit with your bum on the floor, leaning slightly backwards. Grip different objects, balls, pots anything you can lift with your feet, between two different markers. The further the distance the markers are the harder it is.
Your hands cannot touch the ground. Count how many you can do in 30 seconds, then take 30 seconds rest, then repeat 5 times.
Throw a ball against a wall (or with a partner 2 minutes apart) and see how many catches you can do in a minute. Easy right?
Challenge - Use an odd-shaped ball
Do a full 360’ turn before you catch it
Do several attempts and try to beat your scores.

To Bank or Not to Bank
You need a throwing line and three buckets or circles or towels to aim at.
The first bucket should be four steps from the throwing line and is worth 1 point, the 2nd bucket should be 7 steps from the throwing line and is worth 5 points, the last bucket is ten steps from the throwing line and is worth 10 points.
When you get points, you can bank them.
If you miss you lose all the points that you have not banked.
To bank, you need to run around the ten-point marker, head back to the throwing line, then you need to place your body flat on the ground (belly down) and then stand up and jump x10.
After you have banked that money you can continue playing.
You have a 5-minute time limit.
Keep a score of how much you have in the bank and post your score on Google Classroom (optional).
You must bank before the end of the 5-minutes.
Practice first and see which target you feel most confident aiming for. How many times can you consistently hit it? How often should you bank?
