Creative Activity – Focus 1 to 8
This is a great focus activity I will always use to start a session. Ask everybody to stand in a circle. Count to 8 and then back down to 1 together. We will then add an action to each number one at a time:
When ever the number 1 is said click your fingers.
Number 3 – Clap your hands
Number 5 – Nod your head
Number 7 – Jump
Number 8 – Slap your thighs
Once the activity is learnt you can ask the children for new actions. Its a great activity when exploring growth mindset as it can be very tricky but celebrate the mistakes and keep trying as a team. Try changing the speed and see if you can do it faster or why not try not saying the numbers and just do the actions.
