I use games and activities from Top Start and a scheme called Teddy P.E.G.S (Physical Education Games and Skills), can't remember where I got them from as have had them years. You could try and Google them. Am at work tomoz so will check whether there's any contact details. :D

Hi Wysiwyg and welcome!

 

Ive used Tops Start and Tops Play in the past, both of which I believe are from the Val Sabin scheme. Linda has referred you already to that as Action Kids but I havent used that as its quite expensive. Our PE coord had training in the previous 2 and they came with bags of equipment to implement the ideas!

Could I ask also - can anyone recommend a particular 'sticky kids' CD to start with for group of 2 & 3 year olds.

 

Also, does anyone know the 'bean song' I did a placement at a nursery who sang this song with a large group of children in a circle and they loved it (so did I!)- they walked around singing then stopped, someone calls out a kind of bean, and then the children do the action that describes the type of bean called out, then move around again. I remember some of the actions, i.e. a 'Chilli Bean' = the children wrap their arms around themselves and shiver - a 'runner bean' = they run on the spot, 'kidney bean' = they rub their kidney area, etc. etc. but I can't remember the moving around song that goes in between. A list of possible descriptive 'beans' would be appreciated also.

Have heard this too, can't remember too much so would also be interested in hearing of the rhyme too.

 

- runner bean (running),

- baked bean or was it 'beans on toast' (curled up in a ball lying down on some toast??),

- broad bean (star shape).

 

I'm sure someone will know it!

Baked bean - lying spread out 'baking in the sun'

French bean - shout out 'oh, la, la!'

Jelly bean - wobble like a jelly

 

Don't know anything about a song though, we just used to use music, then stop it and shout out the name of the bean and show a picture.

Just to add one more bean - jumping bean = jumping on the spot. I've been sitting here trying to think of others that haven't already been mentioned but the mind has gone blank :o:(

Of course there's always "has beens" xD but I don't know how you would do that (perhaps just lie down) :D:D

Hi Patricia

I would probably start with the Warm Up with the Sticky Kids CD. We have all but the new one, Wiggle and Jiggle, and our children really enjoy them.

Hey, Lynn!! Talk about timing...the panto my son just finished working used part of that song for the 'songsheet, children up on the stage spot' - it's a really catchy but fairly fast tune, great fun but as I don't read music so can't write it down for you that's not a lot of help! :o

 

sorry, had to put in my two penn'orth!

AC Black do a book 'Lets go Zudieo' which covers the movement, dance and music aspect of PE, it has a cd with music on it and it's a dvd too with clips for the children to watch, things like other children doing the activities, the moon landing, indian dancing, a chinese new year dragon dance. Very good, we were recommended it from County and it has been well used over the past 3 years I have had it.

If you have Action Kids can you tell me why you would recommend it and what age group?

 

Gwen,

 

I have Action Kids 600 which is especially for the foundation stage. It has 90 activity cards which you can photocopy and they are grouped into sections such as dance, gym, parachute etc. Each card has a warm up activity, further activities with suggestions for differentiation/progression and a cool down activity. It comes with 2 CDs of music to use with the activities. The learning goals are also listed on each card. There is also a separate CD with warm up and cool down song and suggestions for how you can plan your own sessions. It is so easy to use and has some great activities. :)
