Practising throwing and catching activities during PE lessons is a perfect way to help develop a child’s fundamental movement skills as they grow.
Foam flyers, bats and balls, tossing rings and more can all be used in a range of throwing and catching games. Here at GLS Educational Supplies, we have a choice of lightweight equipment that provides no risk of injury, ideal for younger children who may lack confidence.
Why is throwing and catching important?
In schools, throwing and catching is a key part of early childhood learning in PE lessons. Our range of essentials allows for the development of hand-eye coordination, joint stability and body control. Throwing and catching is a full-body exercise that can be practised in playgrounds, sports fields and gymnastics halls.
