Sharks

Age Range: 5 - 7
By: A Visitor

Have a set of hoops scattered about the floor, with children moving about 'swimming'. The stroke can be changed with older children, e.g. front crawl / back stroke / running backwards.

When the teacher shouts "sharks", the children must get into hoops as quickly as possible (2 children to a hoop).

Remove one hoop each time you shout "sharks", and ask the children to help when they are out to still make them feel part of it.

When only two people are left make them touch the wall at each side of the hall on the way round the hoop to avoid cheating!

Brilliant fun!

Natalie Still has suggested that this game can be linked to the film 'Finding Nemo'... the sharks can be called 'Bruce' and the fish are 'Nemo', 'Dory' or other characters from the film!

It could also be called crocodiles, based on the crocodile in Peter Pan.
