Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths, Enwrought with golden and silver light, The blue and the dim and the dark cloths Of night and light and the half-light, I would spread the cloths under your feet: But I, being poor, have only my dreams; I have spread my dreams under your feet; Tread softly because you tread on my dreams. W.B. Yeats

Do you want to play?

Playground Games

 

We have been thinking about games in the playground, particularly traditional games, for example skipping and clapping games. A few blogs, listed below, have featured some of the games and songs they sing. We hope to add some more to our blog after the holidays.

Any Newshounds reading this might like to research playground games either in your family or on-line and prepare something to video and post after the holidays?

 

Newshounds might also like to visit the blogs above and perhaps leave a comment?

    Dear Mr. E, We put a new playground song that’s not on any of the other sites (I don’t think). Have your kids look for the ABC song. You will quickly see this one is a very modern one! Thank you again for including us in your posts!From,Mrs. Hembree

    Thank you for your comment. I know four square possibly, if it’s a ball game, if not … It’s a new one. We are half way to using Skype. We are on holiday just now and we are fiddling about to see if it works from school. At home it works, at school there is always the filter system to think about!Take careMr E

    Hello Hawes Community School. Mr. Eldridge visited our blog page here in the USA so I thought I would come and explore you blog page. It looks wonderful! I especially like the background as our blog motto is Shoot for the Stars. One of the traditional games we play here at recess is four square. Do you know about that game? Also, my class is wondering if you have the ability to Skype?Keep up the good work,Mrs. Yammine

    Thanks for your comment Miss W, Tasmania’s flag has been hoisted! Dinosaur’s indeed, just life when we had less gadgets. Knuckles is I think ‘Jack Stones’ and elastics is, I think, ‘French Skipping’. I have the elastics on my office desk! A little research in these holidays should get that right. I am hoping to do some work on children’s playground games in the coming term… keep in touch.Mr E

    Mr E,Thanks for visiting my class blog. Your students are doing well with nearly 2000 visitors in less than 5 months.One game I used to love playing when I was at school, back in the age of the dinosaurs, was ‘Elastics’ and ‘Knuckles’. I wonder if your students have heard and / or played these before?

    Dear Mr. E and Hawes Primary,You have some fantastic ideas! The playground songs are spreading excitement. Our students just viewed some of the clapping games found on Mrs. Kistler’s blog and decided they’d like to join in on the fun. We’ll be recording and posting some next week.I hope you all have a wonderful vacation!Your pal,Mrs. Moore

    I have really enjoyed watching this topic unfold and the collaboration between these sites! Great blogging and collaborating! I have especially enjoyed hearing the different voices of children from different corners and getting a glimpse of their playgrounds. This topic has inspired the children I work with to explore some more traditional games. Keep up the great work! πŸ™‚
