Discussion question: Ask children if they felt happy when they completed a card last week. Did they feel sad if they didn’t complete it? Did their partner help them?
Active learning: Children will play a game of “Musical Statues” in the hall. Encourage children to express themselves and to travel at different heights and speeds when the music plays. When the music stops ask the children to come to a stop as quickly and safely as possible. Don’t eliminate any children but congratulate those who stop the quickest. To make it harder tell the children when the music stops they must balance on one leg or have one hand on the floor.
Ensure the children respond to the music and listen effectively to their instructions.
Using the same challenge cards as previous week (8-10 depending on group size).
(Due to the age of the children it is recommended that you model each station to the children before children are set off onto this main activity).
Split the children into NEW pairs. 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.
