KS2 Activity: Striking/Fielding Games
Start by downloading the Activity Brochure, then watch the demonstration video below.
Skill Challenge: Cricket!
Challenge yourself, and your friends, to see who can gain the most points in our Cricket Challenge!
You will need:
A tennis ball, 20 pairs of socks and a target to bowl at.
Make a target/ set of stumps and place an object 12 paces away to mark where to bowl from. Place 20 pairs of socks 2 paces in front of the target/stumps (4 rows of 5 pairs). Player bowls the ball and tries to hit the socks and the target/stumps. If the ball hits a pair of socks they are taken away and the player scores 1 point, if the ball hits the target/stumps they also score a point. How many points can the player score in 90 seconds?
To make it:
Easier – Move the target closer e.g. 10 paces rather than 12 or put more than 20 pairs of socks down
Harder – Bowl from further away e.g. 14 or 16 paces away.
Inclusive – use a larger but light ball e.g beach ball, volleyball
