Discussion question: Ask what “competition” means to them? How can you be the best version of you?
Active learning: Children will play a game of “jumping stars”. In groups of 4-5 ask the children to find a safe space in the hall and stand quietly whilst the teacher explains the rules. The teacher will shout out a type of jump (i.e. star jumps, line jumps, backwards and forwards jumps, side to side jumps) and then children will have 30 seconds to complete as many as they can. The children will need to count for themselves how many they complete and will share that with their group once the 30 seconds is up before the teacher shouts out another jump. Encourage the children to be supportive of each other and count fairly.
Multi skills festival!
Keep the children in the same group as their active learning. Set up 6-7 stations (including 1 rest station) to keep children active for as long as possible. They must then work in their groups for 3-4 minutes per station, counting how many successful attempts they have at each station. Nominate one child per group to keep a record of the score, on a piece of paper.
Ensure the children within the team are cheering for each other and being positive.
Stations could include balancing, penalty shoot-out, jumping jacks, skipping, throwing, and catching.
