Although this could be a Cheap Shop Brilliant Lessons Posts- I think this deserve to have its own post- as it can be used so simply with any class/age/subject!
What to do:
Throw the ball who ever catches it has to make a relevant contribution to the activity.
Possibilities are endless- e.g;
· Science - List the parts of the cell, next person names the function
· MFL – Call out a word in Spanish the next person to catches the ball translates and then calls out another word in Spanish before throwing the ball
· English/history – Summarise the plot of a play/events in history, each person who catches the ball announces the next sequence in events
