This week we played a Healthy Eating version of ‘Snakes and Ladders.’ This was the game board –

The children played the game using a 10 sided dice and each person threw the dice twice and added up their score, before moving their counters. You can see that to go up a ladder, you needed to land on healthy food, but that if you landed on unhealthy food you went down the snake! The game was a lot of fun!

After we had played the game we thought about how we could write instructions for the game, so that we could lend the game to other classes. We remembered to write a list of the things you need to play the game and then we wrote the instructions as numbered steps. We used time words, such as first, next then, after that and finally and used ‘bossy verbs’ (imperatives) to tell the reader what to do. Some of us even used some adverbs to describe how things needed to be done, by using phrases like ‘carefully throw.’

In ICT we created another brilliant game on Purple Mash. This time we created a Food Sorting Game. The children learned how to create a game where the food is sorted into two or three groups and they used clip art to add the pictures. Everyone also wrote instructions to tell the player how to play the game. Here are a few for you to try.

    What a fantastic game. I hope you won’t mind if I borrow your idea for my daughter who has to create a healthy eating game for Guides.

    Designing your own special class smoothly is fun too!
    Best of luck to you all
