This week’s PE Activity of the Week, is the classic game of duck, duck, goose.
Active Superstars plan, coordinate and prepare fun, energising games for children to participate in during our sports sessions. We like to be as unique as possible and ensure children have fun whilst working hard and learning new skills. Each week we share our favourite ‘PE Activity of the Week’ to give you an insight into our sessions and provide some inspiration for games of your own.
The Object of the Game:
The object of this game is for children to listen for when they are called and chase the ‘wolf’!
- Running skills
- Concentration skills
- Reaction time
- Have the children sit in a circle facing inward
- Select one child to be the ‘Wolf’ who must go around the circle tapping each child’s head lightly whilst saying ‘duck, duck..’
- When they choose to do so, they can tap one child and say ‘goose’ instead of ‘duck’. This child must then get up and run around the circle and chase the wolf
- If the ‘goose’ tags the ‘wolf’ then the ‘goose’ wins, however if the ‘wolf’ sits in the empty seat then they win! The ‘goose’ will then turn into the ‘wolf’.
Active Superstars offer a wide range of physical activities during the school holidays.
