Chinese Whispers

Age Range: 5 - 11
By: Emma
  • Get all of your class round to the carpet and make them into a circle.
  • Tell them that they have to be quiet.
  • The teacher starts off by saying any sentence i.e. the teacher needs a cup of tea!
  • Get the children to whisper it to the person sitting next to them. They then whisper what they just heard to the next person.
  • This goes on continuously around the circle, until it reaches the person who started.
  • It's amazing how different the final phrase can be from the original!
