To play an Indigenous Australian game.
- Today we are going to play a game called Kolap.
- Kolap is a game from Mer Island from the Torres Strait Islands.
- You will need something soft to throw such as a soft toy.
- You will also need a towel or mat to act as the target.
- Each player stands behind a line.
- Players take it in turns to throw their objects at the target.
- The aim of the game is to land your object onto the target (this could be a towel or a mat).
- Try and stand further away from the target.
- Try different size targets.
How could you make the game more challenging?
To follow directions when dancing.
- Today we are going to use our movement skills by dancing to some music.
- The song that we are dancing to is called ‘The Dance Freeze Song’.
- You have to keep listening when you are dancing to know when you have to freeze.
- During the song you will also practise jumping, hopping, sliding and twirling.
- When the narrator says freeze, you have to hold whatever dance position you are in.
