Discussion question: Ask pupils if they are happy or sad when they solve a problem. Ask them when they last had to solve a problem and how it made them feel. Did they solve the problem or not?
Active learning: Children will play a game of “Duck Duck Goose”. Children will form a circle with 1 child within the middle. This child will point at children within the circle at random and will continue to as many children until the child points at another child and says “Goose”. This child should leave the circle and run around (clockwise) away from the child in the middle around the circle and back to their place without being tagged. Rotate the child in the centre throughout the 5 minute period.
Using a selection of challenge cards (8-10 depending on group size).
(Due to the age of the children it is recommended that you model each station to them before they are set off onto this main activity).
Split the children into pairs (depending on the class size). Spread the visual resource cards out and start each pair on one of these cards. Children will then attempt to complete the challenge on the card. These challenges will test their mental and physical skills. Rotate the children around the room to ensure they access all cards through the lesson. The resource cards provide information on how to support differentiation with each task and you may have to model this to specific children.
