Linked to Learn! 7 – Throwing

You have been busy practicing your throwing. Are you ready to take part in our challenge?


Challenge yourself, and your friends, to see who can gain the most points in our Cricket Challenge!

Equipment needed: A tennis ball, 20 pairs of socks and a target to bowl at.

Video Demonstration

How to:

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:

Move the target closer e.g. 10 paces rather than 12 or put more than 20 pairs of socks down

Bowl from further away e.g. 14 or 16 paces away.

use a larger but light ball e.g beach ball, volleyball
