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.
We want to encourage our pupils to learn independently inside and out of the classroom so we have created these fun challenge cards! Each card explains how to play a game or activity and every card is different. Some challenges require a group of people to play, others can be completed independently. Photographs and a ‘star rating’ help pupils to choose suitable challenges for their ability and environment. Each school created 10 challenge cards so we now have a pack of 50 fun outdoor activities to try in our schools!
The 27th. and 28th. of September Run, jump, learn! had a Transnational Project Meeting in Gijón, Spain. During the meeting, we did the „Atalia School Tour“, we were received by the local authorities in the Town Hall and we did a Spanish inmersion activity.
Our project was in the printed version of our local newspaper, El Comercio.
The last months every school year our school has a reading project together with the library in town. The librarians choose 12 books and our pupils read and judge them. In June we count the points every book has got and celebrate the 5 best books. The pupils who have left a vote can win a book. It’s a very popular project.
This year we wanted to integrate some motion in this project, so we decided to walk through the books. Every class transformed the classroom to a book and last Friday we had our book walk. All the pupils were very engaged in the reading and transforming.
