You may have noticed that the Rugby World Cup has started! So I thought the time was ripe for an update on my previous post EDL AND RUGBY. (Leaving the EDL update until nearer the event)
You may have already met DoppelMe Rugby Lisa - I know I need large hats for my head but ....! And before you say it, I know she's wearing a football shirt, but the selection of clothing on DoppelMe is poor in comparison with WeeMee and England did play football on Saturday as well as rugby so i thought it would cover both??
Anyway, I spent a LONG time last week putting up my display as promised. The board was smaller than I recalled so it's not as impressive as I had hoped but here are some pictures!
The photo does not really do justice to my 3D rugby posts and squidgy ball, and the sellotape is not attractive, but the dual problems of falling crossbars and Year6 boys necessitated radical measures!
I've obviously aimed for an attractive, colourful display with a bit of WOW! factor - and it did attract attention - there were a number of enquiries as to why I was putting a big white H in the middle of the board (D'oh!) and the ball has attracted attention too although it has stayed attached to the wall most of the time!
But more than being a pretty topical display, its intended to inform and to be interactive.
There's a scoreboard - Los resultados - which is presently overflowing with results after the weekend but which should be big enough for most days.
There are rugby balls in the colours of all the participating team (thanks to Bev Evans for those! )- at present unlabelled as one of the tasks given to year 4 will be to correctly label them. I've laminated the country names and will show them the matching pairs, we'll play pelmanism and a class game on the IWB (see below) and, then in small groups the following week, they'll see how many countries they can match with the TA.
There are also items needed for a game of rugby such as shorts, shirt, gumshield, head protector etc, around the border with the vocabulary items on separate labels at the bottom for a similar exercise with Year 5.
And there are personal identification documents for a variety of rugby players in Spanish too as inspiration for Year 6 who will be preparing Powerpoint presentations on a similar theme. There were complaints from the staff that I might have chosen better looking rugby players - how shallow! Actually, good point but I didn't pick the players, Annaeuan on TES did - and they're not that bad - but no LD :-(
Inspired by Jo's football scheme (see More rugby resources discussion for resources as well as the end of the EDL and Rugby blogpost) all of Key Stage 2's lessons are loosely based around the Rugby World Cup.
I've adapted Jo's Powerpoint so that it generates numbers rather than names as we have 30 children in a class - the idea is that
they pick a numbered card between 1 and 30 and then they watch out for that number on the Powerpoint to find out who they are to support. That'll be a universal activity then Year 3 are looking at Healthy Food, based around La Oruga Muy Hambrienta, Year 4 will look at colours of flags and kits, and Year 6 are looking at personal identification, including country of origin and nationality. Year 5 get to do parts of the body and have my favourite activity of all - labelling all the places Johnny Wilkinson has been injured - that should take at least a lesson!! (Thanks to last Thursday's Independent for the idea!)

I really hope it goes down well as I've enjoyed planning it and am enjoying the rugby no end. The first match was so exciting (sorry Isabelle!) And on the subject of Argentina, must go and see if they can score their four tries and get some bonus points.
I've attached some games I've made on the Activihub trial, the numerical draw and also the rugby balls in Spanish and English.

(that's the Spanish ones)

And I'll add my Johnny Wilkinson worksheet when I've finished it!
