Activity/strategy name and materials required How to do the activity Key principles for doing the activity and comments
Marble run game

Marble run

Waiting cards (as required)

1. Set up the track and pass the marbles round the children. When everyone has had one go say 'Who's turn next?' You want the children to name the next child in the circle and to pass the marbles with as little prompting as possible. Some children may need handover hand modelling to pass the marbles.

2. The target child may need to hold a waiting card to support waiting for their turn.

Keep this activity for the end of a small group work session.

Keep the activity short and snappy so that the children keep motivated.

Choose really interesting toys for this activity that the children don't have general access to.

Any other high interest activity game that can be used in a small group

As above

Toys from a bag

A bag with a selection of appealing toys inside.

1. Take out a toy, play with it for a short time and pass it on.

2. Allow each child a short time to play then say 'Who's turn next?' and support the child handing the toy around.
