Four Oaks Games Challenge Week 4

Hello everyone,

How are you all? Did you enjoy the games challenges last week? It is lovely to see so many children taking part.

Here are the new challenges for this week:

Para-Sport: Pasta Blasta

1. You will need 6 sheets of paper with numbers 1-6 written on the sheets. then spread them out in a fan shape. Put numbers  4, 5, 6 furthest away, then numbers 3 and 2 underneath and finally number 1.
2. Put a few handfuls of pasta or rice in 3 sandwich bags to use as bean bags and seal or use bean bags if you have them.
3.Mark out 3 steps from the number 1 sheet and put a chair down and sit on the chair or if it’s more comfortaable sit on the floor.
4. You have 5 attempts/beanbags to score points.
5. Add your points together (using the numbers on the sheets) and submit your results.
6. Remember to ensure each piece of paper is a beanbags length away from the other numbers and if any part of your beanbag lands on a piece of paper that still counts.
7. Please remember to also be honest when submitting your scores. If you wish to find out more about Panathlon Challenge, click on their logo.

Additional Variations 

S.T.E.P Principle Variation
S- Space Move the targets closer
T- Task Players with restricted upper mobility can move over the target and drop the bean bag
E- Equipment Use bigger targets
P- People Ask an adult or sibling to help direct the shot towards the target

Para-Sport: Table Kurling

1. For this activity you will require a smooth table (check with an adult that it is okay to use this), five jar lids, and some pens and paper.
2. You will do this activity seated from one end (short side) of the table.
3. Write the numbers 1, 2, 5 and 10 each on a separate piece of paper, and line these up along one of the longest sides of the table with 1 being closest to the end you are seated at and 10 being at the furthest end.
From your seated position, push the first jar lid (smooth side down) along the table. The aim is to get your jar lid to stop in line with the number 10, but it is great if you are able to get it to stop in line with any of the numbers.
5.Now push each of the remaining four jar lids across the table from your seated position, one at a time, aiming to get them to stop in line with the number 10.
6. You can push the jar lids with your hand(s) or with a pusher such as a wooden spoon, and you may wish to use a ramp such as a chopping board (see STEP adaptations below).
7. Once you have pushed all five jar lids, it’s time to count up your score for your first attempt. To do this you will need to work out which number (1, 2, 5 or 10) each of the jar lids sits in line with. Then add each of the numbers together to find your score.
8. You can submit up to three scores for this activity, so have at least another two goes at pushing five jar lids across the table. See if you can beat your previous score.
9. If you are going to put the jar lids back on to jars once you finish this activity, it is important that you remember to give them a bit of a clean first.
10. Remember to be honest when submitting your results. If you wish to find out more about Panathlon Challenge, click on their logo.

Para-Sport: Polybat

1. Collect the following equipment: 6 objects (trophy, cardboard tube, little plastic toy, paper or plastic cup). A soft small ball, a pair of rolled up socks or rolled up paper with tape on. At one end and the sides use some books, cereal boxes or something similar to make a barrier and use a book or dvd case as a bat.
2. Put the books or cereal boxes to form two sides and one far end leaving a large enough space in the middle to place your objects.
3. Place the six objects into the middle of the area you have created in this formation:

                                               X

                                               X

4.You have six separate shots to try and hit the six objects. You get one point for hitting each object. If you get all six objects with six separate shots you get a bonus of three points, which would give a maximum of nine points. This is your first attempt. 
5.  Add your points up and submit your score as a number once completed. In your second or third attempt try to beat your score.
