Key learning this resource may support:
Physical development can be supported such as gross motor skills as the child may choose to roll, throw, kick the ball.
The bumpy texture of the ball and various ways it can be explored offer a sensory experience to children.
The ball can support children’s social and emotional development as children might engage in cooperative or group play with the ball.
Suggested starting points for engagement:
- Encourage the child to explore the ball in an open ended way and follow the child’s lead, using language to describe what might be happening.
- An individual child might be supported by the practitioner to play a rolling game which can help postural support and control or to use feet to pass the ball to each other.
- The ball can be used to develop sensory awareness for individual children where appropriate by rolling the ball on the child’s hands, feet or back, paying careful attention to their body language about preferences.
