Every child must leave happy so a few minutes playtime is compulsory!
Interact as much as possible, but allow them to entertain themselves as well.
Yum, Yum Yum ,I need some little children for my hungry tum…
.. some tasty toes for my tea
(If they stay on the floats they are safe. Careful this may scare some little ones!)
I am just going to have little lay down on my float before my next lesson.. and I don’t want to be disturbed. (Don’t forget to let them push you off and come up spluttering)
You can’t get on, you’re too fat it will sink…anyway its my float and you can’t play with it.. (Don’t forget to let them push you off and come up spluttering) Then they try and stay on while you push them off.
Use a float as a goal and teacher is the useless goalie. Lots of balls in the water.
Tackling underwater, Two teams simple 2 minute game, let them tackle you
