Can you design a board game of your own? Maybe it could be based on Maths and involve calculations you have to solve if you land on a square? It could be based on a topic of learning you have been covering e.g. Rainforests. It could be based on a book you have read like Kensuke’s Kingdom. What will your board look like? What playing pieces will you have? Will you have questions the players have to solve?

Invent a Playground Game.
In school, we have playground equipment that we can use during our breaks to play games. Can you create a game that could be played with a small group of people using the playground apparatus? You could select cones, a bouncy ball and some chalk to make a game where you have to get the ball to bounce in a target area to score points. Think carefully about the equipment you will need and the rules of the game.
Use the pictures to remind yourself of some of the different pieces of equipment we have.
