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!
We were excited to share the training from Germany with the rest of our staff. Everyone enjoyed the games! The sound shaker game was very popular and we were good at guessing how far a deer can jump. We managed to fit 21 people in our shed! We are looking forward to trying out the games with our pupils.
The children in Year 5 (ages 9 and 10) had to work in groups to try out different positions in a game of Quidditch. They created, collected and then interpreted the data. Children then worked as a team to decide which position best suited each member.
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.
