GAMES
Skipping. Rounders. Hide and Go Seek, and Donkey, are the games generally played in our school.
SKIPPING.
You skip with a rope, and you have two people winding it for you. You can do a number tricks in the rope while you skip, such as.
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear turn around
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear tip the ground
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear show me your toe
Teddy Bear Teddy Bear out you go.
Then you run out, without stopping the rope.

Another rythme is Handy Pandy sugary candy one two three. The the two people winding window the rope over your hand for one two three and at three let the rope tip the ground, then you run out or do it over again.
