Woolly Jumpers for Sport Relief

Leave a comment

Timmy Time Sport Relief

21st-23rd March is Sport Relief weekend – and that’s not far away.  The charity has created a lively lamb Timmy to engage young children in being physical on the day (and beyond of course) – playing Hide and Sheep, Sheeplechase and (best of all) Woolly Jumpers.  Free downloadable resources are available (if you need them) from Sport Relief’s nursery page Timmy Time.  Incidentally, the favourite play of Ramatu, the 4 year-old from Ghana featured on the site, is… making mud pies.

One of the things children most love to do is to jump and leap (and it’s really good for the development of balance and body awareness, as well as contributing to fitness and happiness), so I can see this being a very popular idea.  If you’d like to investigate leaping further, take a look at the DVD The Sounds of Leaping from Sightlines Initiative.
