Talk to the children about the responsibilities that are needed to explore and be part of a successful team. Ask the children what the benefits are of physical learning.
Active learning: Divide the children into pairs of groups of 3 and sit them down together. Giving them 2 or 3 minutes ask them to discuss qualities they have within their group, i.e. leader, logical thinker, determined. Encourage the children to be positive about each other and chose a selection of the groups to talk about their group qualities.
Randomly spread out the fun facts chase resource cards prior to starting the activity. Keep the children in the same group and provide them with an answer sheet. Explain the aim of the activity, to work together as a group and work out the answers to the questions on the cards (20 in total), within the time frame se by the teacher. Remind children that they need to communicate well within their group, keep positive and ensure they work together as a team. Keep a record of each team's completion time and use this to create a leader board. Once all groups have returned check the answers together and declare a winner.
TOP TIP: Set out the resource cards as far apart as you can, as this enables children to move more between cards and encourages them to be more physically active.
TOP TIP: Encourage children to run and walk at different speeds when moving around the space to support intensity levels and to get their heart rate up.
