This is a fun, individual challenge activity pupils can do at home or at school. 

Purpose of Activity: Increase pupil physical activity through creating a target and fun challenges. Mark a cross (gold) on a wall or piece of paper and draw 3 circles around it, they don’t have to be a perfect shape. Measure the distance from the wall – 3 meters, 5 meters and 7 meters and place something to mark it. If you haven’t got a measuring tape, use big steps. You have 3 throws at each distance and have to score as many points as possible. The cross (gold) is worth 10 points, inner circle 7 points, middle circle 5 points and outer circle 3 points. Use a beanbag or a ball of choice.

The STEP framework is included to support the inclusion of all pupils.
