PE from South Africa – Warming up December

In year 5 and 6 we are taking advantage of every drop of Winter sun to do PE outside.

We have played three African playground games  –

Dropskotch  – involving hopping and kicking with accuracy

Dibeke – A form of tag added with catching and kicking skills.

Three toti – A game of throwing, retrieving and running.













Carrying on our discussions of stewardship of the Earth as Christians, we talked about the recycled items that African children use in these games. We decided we can follow that example and thought about how it would also make the games much harder.

Children will get the chance to choose their favourite and play it more and more before Christmas.
