We try to make lessons as active as possible at Plascrug. Here the Year 1 pupils are learning the story of ‘Rosie’s Walk’ by acting it out on a journey around the school grounds. At the end of the journey the pupils could tell the story on their own!
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!
Here we have the qr codes that our Bronze Ambassadors made to put in the Foundation Phase classroom to help the pupils develop their physical skills.
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!
