Every so often we drop everything and have GAMES DAY! – For example when I’m covering for a sick colleague!
The principle is simple,
a) Get out every game you have and set the classroom so the groups can go from game to game trying them out,
Or even easier, give each student a piece of A4 folded into 16 parts ( half length ways twice and widthways twice) draw lines and number the squares. Students then add their own snakes and ladders, and more importantly, draw something they’ve learnt about recently – hey presto! Our own board game!
