Swanage St Mark's Church of England Primary School tries Random RoutinesPosted on 10 July 2020
Our pupil pods enjoyed taking part in Random Routines. What I thought would be a two minute activity took all break time as they wanted to play again and again. At lunch time the group decided to use two dice and multiply the numbers to set the number of skips they should do. All our pupils have their own skipping rope and tennis ball and are taking part in St Mark's Super Skills every day.
Why not try the Tokyo Ten Random Routines yourself!
