Pancake Race – Wales

We took inspiration from the pancake races in Spain and Sweden today and held an Easter Games event!  Pupils from Year 1 (ages 5 and 6) took part in egg and spoon races, egg rolling, an egg toss and a hunt the egg game using cones.  They had to find and collect the eggs in their team’s colour and leave the rest.  The winners were those who collected the most!

Plate relay math game (Finland)

Two teams are given two different numbers. There are six different math problems for each of the numbers. These calculations are written on plates which are located face down on the floor.

First member of both teams start at the same time, they run to the play area and turn a plate of their choice, and calculate the sum/difference/multiplication/division. If that matches with their target number, they can keep the plate and return to their team and send next team member to continue. If number does not match, they leave the plate on floor face down and return to their team and next member continues. The team which has found all 6 plates matching their result, is the winner.

 

Sweden – A game in the snow

„The Gear“ – A game in the snow

First, we make a big circle in the snow. After that we make walkways from the circle to the centre. In the middle we made a smaller circle.

When the game starts we choose one catcher. The other children are trying to escape and run in the gear. If they want a break they can rest in the little circle in the middle were the catcher can’t take them. There they count to 10 and then they must leave again.

The annual ski slope day on Tolvmannabacken

Sweden

In February we had our annual day on the ski slope we have in town. This day all pupils from the first to the third grade can choose ice skating, go sledding or downhill skiing.

For children who never stand on ski we have ski lessons. These pupils usual are very proud in the afternoon, because they have learned so much.

Lunch is served outside and everyone loves hamburger, apple and juice. Our pupils love this day and look forward to it. There is a lot of motion and fun.
