„Time to move“ – that’s what teachers at Kleeblattschule said more often than usuall. We try to activate our pupils by integrating an additional activity or TRP game in everyday lessons.That can be a welcome ritual in the morning, an active break in between two parts of a lesson or a TPR song in Science or English.
Run, jump, learn! partner schools had a photo competition recently. The children took photos of each other moving. Each photo had to have at least three children moving. Each school then chose and rewarded the school winners. Here are the winning photos for you to enjoy!
Straight after returning home from Finland, three of our colleagues inspired the rest of our team by showing them some ways of increasing physical literacy and basic skills. We all got into action, learned and laughed a lot. What a fantastic teacher training!
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.
On Shrove Monday we disguise and have lots of crazy activities going on in our school. First we meet in the classrooms to present our costumes to our classmates and have some food together. Later we have a parade to the gym where the whole school meets to celebrate carnival. Each year our Dance Club performs some dances and the best costumes of the school do a catwalk parade. Before we finally return to our classrooms we do some funny singing and dancing together.
