Bean Game Warm Up
Fun warm up game to get the class moving.

Teacher calls “Runner Bean” children stop and run as fast as they can on the spot.
Teacher calls “String Bean” everybody has to stretch out making themselves as long and as tall as possible.
Teacher calls “French Bean” students have to say/do something French.
Teacher calls “Jumping Bean” Students jump on the spot.
Teacher calls “Baked Bean” students lie down and curl up.
Teacher calls “Jelly Bean” everybody wobbles.
Take 3-4 mins to play this game.
Spread hoops all around your playing area in the yard
You will need bibs for this game, one for everyone in the class, it’s often a good idea to give each student a bib to stick in their pocket or hang from their trousers at the start of the game so they have it on hand when needed.
Nominate two chasers (Crocodiles) and get them to put their bibs on.
The hoops are safe spaces, players cannot be caught when standing in hoops and they may move from hoop to hoop but outside of the hoop they may be tagged.
When teacher calls “River” no player is allowed inside hoops for 30 seconds, players must dodge taggers while staying outside of hoops at the same time.
Anyone who gets tagged at any time during the game must put on their bib and become a Crocodile.
Vary movements by introducing hopping and jumping.
