This resource contains four different PE games, each of which can be played in four different ways, giving sixteen great PE games for young pupils. They are meant to be played outdoors or in a large sports hall. The images in the game feature a summer theme.
Decide on how many teams you will have, then print and laminate the same number of sheets for that game. For example, if you will have six teams, print out six copies of the first four pages etc. Cut out the small individual cards that go with each game.
Place the base board on the ground in front of each team. Place cones in various places around the hall/field/pitch. Place some cones nearer and some farther away. Place the small cards under the cones. For example, if you have six teams, place six t-shirt cards under one cone, six bucket cards under another etc.
The object of the game is for each team to cover their base card with the small images. The first team to complete the task is the winner.
One pupil from each team runs at a time to a cone, takes one small card, returns to their team and matches the card to the base card. If they match correctly, the next member of the team may go. Each member of the team takes their turn to do this.
However, if a pupil returns to their team with a card the team already has, they must return the card to the cone, select another from underneath another cone before the next pupil can run. This really makes the rest of the team pay attention so they know which cone has already been visited by another member of their team.
Each game can be played in four different ways:
* Match picture to picture
* Match picture to silhouette
* Match word to picture
* Match word to silhouette
(with the exception of the game with the sunny letters - in this game pupils match the word that begins with the same letter to the sunny letter)
I've seen this game in action and it can become very competitive!
