Challenge 15 - Beanbag Pass

Challenge #15 – Beanbag Pass

Are you ready for the next Davies Sports Personal Challenge? Challenge #15 is Beanbag Pass. Simply, sit on the floor back to back with your partner, feet flat on the floor and knees bent. One child starts with the beanbag, twists their torso and passed the beanbag to their partner. Once you have received the beanbag, twist the opposite way to pass it back to your partner. Keep going and count how many passes you can make in 60 seconds!

What are the benefits?

  • Practicing exercises such as Beanbag Pass can help to engage core muscles and improve hand eye coordination.
  • Refocus

Short bursts of physical activity help to refocus distracted minds. The challenge gets the whole class moving together for 60 seconds and then return to the lesson focused and re-energized ready to learn. 

What is the 60 Second Challenge?

Being physically active every day is essential for a child’s growth and development. The aim of the Personal Challenge is to get children moving by challenging them to complete an exercise in 60 seconds. Although, it might be difficult to fit activity in around the school day, these simple ideas can give children that extra boost of activity and get everyone moving together.

These challenges only take 60 seconds to complete, require little-to-no equipment and contribute to improving overall fitness. Simply stand up from the desk and get moving. Set the challenge at the beginning of the week and repeat each day. Get the children to note down how many …. they can do. Try to motivate the children to beat their score the next day. At the end of the week everyone can review their scores to see how they have done. Have they improved? We have created a Personal Tracker to make this simple, don’t forget to download yours here.
