Running dictation

Osprey class had an active English lesson today running around outside our classroom!

Each group had a scribe, who had to stay in one place in the playground, and some runners.  Their task was to run to an area where they would find a clipboard with a paragraph attached.  The children would then read it through, try to remember as much of it as they could, and then run back to their scribe with a memorised section of the text! The scribe would then have to write it down, word for word, with no spelling mistakes or missed punctuation! The runners could return as many times as they liked, with their main challenge being to deliver the message as accurately as possible to their scribe!

Here they are, hurtling around trying to complete the task with 100% accuracy!
