Run, jump, learn! project had an LTT-event in Finland in Oulu. During the event, we trained in active teaching methods inside and outside. We also had the chance to get to enjoy the winter and experience Finland.
Here are some photos of our Yogance club for our Reception children (age 4 and 5). It is a mixture of yoga and dance where they learned some relaxing breathing techniques and yoga stretching poses and also had lots of fun learning cool hip hop dance moves. This was an after school extra-curricular activity and it was very popular.
Today we had math outside in the snow. Our goal was to practice measurement in meter and centimeter. We worked in groups of 4. First the group prepared the course. Then one pupil went down on a bum slider, two pupils measured and one wrote down the results. Every pupil went 3 rounds, then we worked inside with the results.
Here you can find ideas for cool PE lessons. These are three games we regularly play in Physical Education.
It’s really cold outside, but sadly we have no snow. So we play a game called snowball fight in our gym.
Two teams have a certain amount of movable equipment that they can arrange to protect their group at the beginning of the lesson. Afterwards the snowballfight beginns. The children have lots of fun, throwing, catching and hiding… (like dodge ball).
The second game is a steeplechase. Four teams try to master the obstacle course in two minutes.
The third game is called Kingsprom. The king is sitting on his throne and his subjects throw „golden coins“ to him. After each successful throw and catch the king moves his throne a step backwards. The winning team is the one whos king is the first at the last marking.
