  1. Rock Paper Scissors 

Play with someone at home standing one metre apart and facing each other. Mark out two safe areas for each person. Each pair begins by performing a rock-paper-scissors routine. A rock is a closed fist, paper is a flat hand, and scissors are the index and middle fingers in  a cutting position. Paper always covers rock, rock breaks scissors, and scissors cut paper. To determine a winner, count to three and form a rock, paper, or scissors. The winning person then chases their partner toward their safety line, attempting to tag them before they are safe. Line up again and repeat the activity.

  1. Kicking

Activity 1 – Through the Gate

In pairs with one ball per pair (get creative if you have no ball – rolled up socks are good). Each person stands on a spot facing

their partner who is also standing on a spot a distance away. Set up a gate

between each pair using two cones (tins of beans, cereal boxes anything will do). Person A attempts to kick the ball to Person B

through the gate. One point is awarded for each pupil that successfully kicks the

ball through the gate.

Single pupils could play the game off a wall. Increase the distance to increase difficulty. Add some targets.

Activity 2 – Kick to Score

Draw or stick target areas at various heights on a wall. Points should be placed in the centre of each target from one to five. The aim is to hit the targets on the wall to achieve a score. Who is the best in your house?

Pupils could try to score a penalty on Mom, Dad or a big brother or sister.
