- Running backwards and forwards between two points is referred to as performing ‘shuttles’. Try and come up with different movement types the children can perform when doing their shuttles.
- They could perform a different movement each time or for a set amount of turns (e.g. after 5 turns of running they could do 5 turns of galloping).
Some different movement ideas:
Running, jumping, hopping, hopscotch, skipping, running backwards, sidestepping, galloping, leaping, crawling on hands and feet, wriggling along on tummy, slow motion, etc.
- NB: repeatedly jumping and hopping will be quite high energy activities so alternate them with less intense movements such as walking, skipping, jogging to provide recovery time.
