Musical PE!

Last night, my son and I were playing bounce and catch with some music on in the background. We thought it would be fun if we could bounce the ball to each other in time with the beat of the music. It was a really fun game and we spent a long time playing, using different music with quicker or slower tempos.

I would like you all to try this, be careful if you choose to do this inside (Ollie and I nearly knocked over a glass eeek!)

See if you can count the beats in your chosen song. Is it easier with a fast or slow tempo or one with the count of 4?

PE wise, I am looking for control of the ball. Remember to look at the person opposite you so that the ball reaches them. Control how hard you bounce the ball. What will happen if you apply too much force to the bounce or too little?

Have fun and as always, pictures are most welcome.
